Lumineers are a fantastic option for providing patients with the Hollywood smile of their dreams. Cleaning them is easy, as it is done in much the same way as you would clean your natural teeth.
The best way to clean your Lumineers is to brush and floss like normal. This means at least twice a day or after meals. While Lumineers are made out of porcelain and therefore resistant to stain and decay, the teeth underneath the Lumineers are still susceptible to decay. That is why in addition to regularly brushing and flossing your teeth, it is still important to visit our San Fernando Valley cosmetic dentist every six months for a professional exam and cleaning.
While Lumineers are resistant to staining, that does not mean that they are stain-proof. It is best to avoid drinking coffee, red wine, tea, and soda, or to at least consider drinking these beverages through a straw instead. Also, avoid biting on hard objects with your Lumineers, and wear a mouth guard at night if you suffer from bruxism.
