At Healthy Smiles, we may recommend a veneer to bring symmetry or to correct a wide range of dental imperfections, which may be costing you your confidence. Blackburn dentists carry out all procedures with a lot of gentleness and care, we help you achieve that natural, perfect smile with the help of veneers. 

Foods to avoid with temporary veneers

Veneers are tailor-made to suit your jaw structure. Our caring dental team in Blackburn uses temporary veneers, which protects your teeth from damage and sensitivity. 

During the time period that you wear temporary veneers, we advise you to take special care with your food choice.  The Veneers are fixed with temporary bonding material. It can easily wear off or displaced if you are not careful. 

Sticky food products and staining agents like tea, coffee, carbonated drinks, and red wine can harm your temporary veneers. Avoid eating hard foods like candies and chewy tough meat. 

Foods to avoid with permanent veneers

Permanent veneers are more resilient and durable than temporary ones. After our Blackburn dentist places the permanent veneers for you, your food choices can go back to usual with a few considerations about maintaining the beauty of your smile with the help of oral hygiene. 

While your veneer is strong enough, it is still safer to avoid extremely hard foods. Never use it for cracking nuts or clenching them strongly. 

Alcoholic drinks will also damage the bonding material and reduce the longevity of your veneers.

We advise patients to consume dark liquids in moderation to make the veneer last longer. After drinking a staining liquid, it is also good to inculcate a habit of rinsing your mouth with water. This reduces the risk of staining. 

Healthy Smiles has a highly experienced and very caring dental team in Blackburn which aims to provide quality dental care at the best prices. Dental imperfections can impact your overall health and wellness and affect your confidence levels as well. If you have a dental imperfection that you want to fix, reach out to our team.

Our Sleep Dentistry Melbourne facility ensures that you don’t have to worry about any pain or discomfort while our caring team works on your smile. You do not have to fight panic or anxiety triggers like the sound of machines or the sight of injections and tools. So it is like visiting Healthy Smiles Clinic, going to sleep, and waking up with the perfect set of teeth the way you wanted them to be.
