If dental veneers are new to your smile, then it is important to remember how to care for them properly. That is why, our team here at Melissa Maus & Associates in San Francisco, California, our team is happy to give you tips and advice on how to care for your dental veneers, so they can last giving you a dazzling smile for years to come.

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

Even though your dental veneer is not made of tooth enamel, the tooth behind your dental veneer still is, so brushing and flossing your teeth is very vital to keep your smile healthy. Cavities and gum disease can still show if you neglect your oral health hygiene routine. It is also significant to remember to make your regular dental checkups with Dr. Melissa Maus every six months. This will help keep your oral health in top-notch shape and veneers in excellent condition.
