If you are new to dental veneers, then it is important to know how to care for them properly. That is why, our team here at East Indianapolis Dental Associates in Indianapolis, Indiana, is happy to give you tips and advice on how to care for your dental veneers, so they can last and give you a dazzling smile for years to come.

In a nutshell, dental veneers are the shells that are bonded to the front of your individual tooth, which hides flaws in your teeth like discolored, cracked or chipped teeth. Dental veneers are not made of tooth enamel, they are made of either resin materials or porcelain giving you the flawless look. As a result, they are not subject to cavities, 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 your teeth is very important to keep your smile healthy and clean. Cavities and gum disease can still happen if you neglect your oral health care. It is also important to keep in mind to make your regular dental checkups with Dr. James McAllister every six months. This will help keep your oral health in wonderful shape and veneers in excellent condition.
