What are Veneers?
Veneers are made out of porcelain and are crafted for each individual patient. They are attached to the fronts of your teeth and can last for up to a decade. They can help to cover cracks, breaks, chips and uneven spacing. You might even choose veneers because you’re looking to obtain a brighter and healthier-looking smile. It’s not uncommon for patients to want veneers before a big event, like a reunion or wedding where they want to look their best.
Can You Drink Coffee with Veneers?
You can definitely drink coffee and other staining beverages when you have veneers placed. The beauty about veneers is that they do not stain and discolor like natural teeth. For this reason, they’re relatively resistant to any type of staining and discoloration. This allows patients to enjoy their favorite beverages without having to worry that the veneers will constantly look stained, yellowed and discolored. You won’t need to worry about using whitening treatments, since they’re ineffective at lightening your already-white veneers.
Maintaining the Beauty of Your Veneers?
The best way to maintain your veneers is to brush them as you would any of your other teeth and floss in between them. Try to avoid biting directly down into foods or using your veneers to open bottles and packages. Veneers can provide you with years of a beautiful, full smile. If you ever experience a veneer falling out, be sure to keep it with you and come in for it to be re-attached. Your veneers will look stunning for many years because they’ll stay white and bright regardless of what you might be drinking or eating.
