Delivering Quality Veneers and Maintenance in Alexandria

At Farhan Qureshi, DDS, we want to see you smiling with confidence and pride. One way we can help you do this is by means of porcelain veneers. After delivering your even, bright, new smile, we’ll set you up with a few tips for keeping them sparkling.

Some of the suggestions include:

  • Don’t use your veneers (or any other teeth!) as tools for opening and tearing things that aren’t food
  • Keep up with your daily brushing and flossing
  • Avoid gritty toothpastes which can scratch and dull the surface of veneers
  • Limit your use of dark foods like coffee, tea, and red wine which could stain the edges around the veneer

How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?

You can expect your veneers to stay firmly in place for several years. Most veneers last around ten years, and in many cases, much longer! As long as you take great care of them and don’t use your front teeth as tools, your veneers will take care of your smile.

Give Them Checkups!

Although the veneers are just dental restorations, they are covering and protecting natural teeth.

Glossy white porcelain veneers can make anyone’s smile complete. After receiving yours, keep coming in to visit Dr. Qureshi. Regular dental visits will ensure the beauty and strength of your veneers for years to come!
