If you are new to dental veneers, then it is imperative to remember how to care for them properly. That is why, our team here at Vincent C. Mayher, DMD, MAGD in Haddonfield, New Jersey, is glad to give you tips and advice on how to care for your dental veneers, so they can last giving you a beautiful smile for years to come.

Dental veneers are the very thin shells that are bonded to the front of your tooth, which hides flaws in your smiles like discolored, cracked or chipped teeth. Dental veneers are not made of tooth enamel like your teeth are. In many cases, they are made of either resin or porcelain materials giving you the flawless look you wanted. As a result, they are not subject to tooth decay like your teeth do, but can still stain from dark drinks like wine or tobacco use.

Even though your dental veneer is not made of tooth enamel, the tooth behind your veneer still is, so brushing and flossing regularly is very important to keep your smile healthy. Cavities and gum disease can still appear if you neglect your smile. It is also imperative to remember to make your regular dental checkups with Dr. Vincent Mayher semi-annually. This will help keep your oral health and dental veneers in excellent condition.
