“Will Porcelain Veneers Stain?” Common Misconceptions of Porcelain Veneers.

10 March 2021

Cosmetic porcelain veneers offer some of the most glamorous results available in aesthetic dentistry. Their curated, hand-crafted design is tailored to each individual patient, providing impeccable results. That being said, there are still a few misconceptions that people have surrounding this tried-and-true cosmetic dentistry treatment in Sydney.

Veneers Will Stain

Any dark food or liquid that would stain a white shirt will not easily stain your veneers. Especially if you get high quality porcelain veneers, they are stain resistant! That means, you can relax and enjoy your coffee and tea, in moderation!

You Can Bleach Veneers

The colour of your dental veneers is specifically chosen for your individual appearance. Porcelains and ceramics do not bleach out the same way your teeth do, so the colour is constant.

If you think you might want a brighter smile, it’s best to discuss your long-term goals with our Best Dentists in Sydney during your initial cosmetic consultation.

You Shouldn’t Floss Porcelain Veneers

Many people assume that flossing around their porcelain veneers (or crowns for that matter) will pull them off their teeth. This isn’t the case. In reality, it’s crucial to floss around veneers daily, so that bacteria don’t accumulate and cause decay along their margins.

If you have questions about how to properly floss around your dental veneers, ask our experts – we will let you know all the top tips and tricks.

There’s Only One ‘Good’ Type of Veneer

It’s impossible to say that only one type of treatment works well for everyone. Our approach is to create the smile that will suit our individual client’s need and facial design – thus every case is perfectly unique and different! Make sure you ask our doctors when you come in for your consultation!

Porcelain Veneers Last Forever

No matter how well your veneers are made, daily maintenance and routine preventative care are essential. Ideally, we would like your cosmetic porcelain veneers to last for at least 10 years at a time.

If you’re someone who tends to clench and grind your teeth at night – watch out – we also suggest wearing a bite splint while you’re sleeping.

You need to Qualify for Dental Veneers

Getting porcelain Veneers are different from treatments like fillings or crowns, as they’re placed on healthy teeth. In most cases, you will be good to go with veneers to transform your smile.

If one of your teeth needs major restorative treatment, we will make sure that’s taken care of before proceeding to cosmetic treatment – because your wellbeing is always our priority!
