Taking care of dental veneers

Porcelain veneers in Whittier CA, cosmetic dentist in Whittier

Veneers are thin layers of material placed over the teeth to improve their shape and appearance and/or protect their surface from damage. Veneers are usually used to fix teeth that are discolored, chipped or broken, uneven or irregularly shaped or have gaps between them. Veneers provide a natural look, they are stain resistant and extremely durable.  At the same time, you’ll need to follow certain rules to make them last longer, giving you a bright and beautiful smile:

  • Good oral hygiene

Brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing once a day, and rinsing with mouthwash will help to keep your veneers in good shape. Make sure that you are using a soft toothbrush, since hard bristles, as well as abrasive toothpaste, can cause damage to your veneers.

  • Avoid biting or chewing on objects

Veneers can break or get damaged due to nail-biting or a bad habit of chewing on pens, pencils or other hard objects.

  • Avoid grinding or clenching teeth

Grinding or clenching your teeth may cause a severe damage to your veneers. Talk to our dentist in Whittier or Montebello about treatment options if you have a habit of clenching or grinding your teeth.

  • Avoid foods that can stain your teeth

Some food and drinks can darken your natural teeth. Although most veneers are stain-resistant, try to avoid drinks such as coffee, coffee, tea, red wine etc. to keep your teeth and veneers looking as white and natural as possible.

  • Prevent gum disease

Untreated gum disease can lead to receding gums, which in turn could impact the appearance of veneers. See Dr. Shahmanyan as soon as possible if you experience any symptoms of gum disease.

  • Regular dental check-ups

Do not miss your regular check-ups at Sky Dental in Whittier or Montebello. Visit us at least twice a year to keep your teeth and gums healthy and prolong the life of your veneers.

Finally I was able to smile and felt so at ease. My colleagues couldn’t figure out what’s the secret of my freshness. Dr. Shahmanian’s professional dental treatment made me feel younger and healthier. It was so emancipating to go to bed without having to take out my dentures, instead I had implants permanently supporting my dentures.


My front tooth has damaged since since I was a child. As a mature lady, it was something that always got on my way and limited my smile. I heard Dr. Shahmanian’s really good in cosmetic dentistry. It’s a matter of only 2 hours and I got my smile and confidence back. What else can I say? The sky is the limit for SKY DENTAL.


I took my 5-year old twins to Dr. Shahmanian’s office because of his immaculate reputation as people’s doctor. I was amazed by the welcoming and warm atmosphere in the office, in addition to the doctor’s calm and meticulous treatment. My kids after the visit said they want to become a dentist. I wouldn’t mind at all. Dr. Shahmanian is now our family dentist and, most importantly, my kids love going to SKY DENTAL.
