Lumineers, which are made with Cerinate porcelain, are highly resistant to stains and are unlikely to become stained. The porcelain has a special glazed finish that repels stains, so you can continue eating and drinking the foods you love. However, while the Cerinate porcelain will not stain, your teeth can still become discolored. Good dental habits can help reduce the risk of staining and keep your teeth looking beautiful.
1. Brushing and flossing
Properly cleaning your teeth will reduce the risk of any stains developing. Brush twice a day, floss daily, and use an antimicrobial rinse to remove plaque and bacteria.
2. Non-abrasive toothpaste
Abrasive whitening toothpastes can damage the glazed finish on the porcelain, which can allow stains to seep into your veneers. Brush with a super-soft brush and a gentle fluoride toothpaste to clean your teeth without causing damage.
3. Regular checkups
Regular professional cleanings remove minor stains from teeth and help keep your teeth and porcelain restorations looking bright and beautiful. These checkups can also catch symptoms of dental diseases at an earlier stage, which helps to reduce the risk of long-term complications.
