|Veneers are a beautiful addition to have that makes your smile stand out even more than it already does. They are a thin piece of porcelain that sits over the top of the teeth and provides them with a different shade of color, a different shape or an entirely different look.
People get them for many reasons. There are specific things to avoid if you have veneers, especially if you have temporary veneers, as they can break off and cause problems.
Things to Stay Away From With VeneersRegardless if you have temporary or regular veneers, it is important that you stay away from some items that might cause them harm. Anything that is extremely hard to bite into. Apples can even cause a problem. If you want apples, cutting them up can provide an easier way to chew them without worrying about them breaking the veneers off. Steak can also be extremely tricky to chew with veneers. Sticky foods, not just hard ones, can also cause problems to the teeth, while potato chips can wedge under them and cause further issues.
