29 May Can you still floss with Porcelain E-max veneers? What kind of dental floss should you use?
Porcelain veneers like e-max veneers for example, are relatively easy to maintain because they are stain-resistant and solid. However, just like with your original teeth, you need to make sure that you keep them clean.
Over time, plaque buildups occur when you fail to care for your porcelain veneers. When plaque forms, this makes your teeth prone to decay. Thus, the natural tooth where your veneers are placed will eventually become damaged.
This is why you need to practice dental hygiene to prolong the lifespan of your veneers. Even if porcelain will not decay, gum disease can arise if you do not clean your teeth properly. Proper brushing and the use of the right dental floss will help minimize your risk of gum disease and cavities over time.
When choosing the right dental floss, be sure to look for waxed ones. It should also be thin, yet durable. Most importantly, be sure to follow the right flossing techniques to achieve maximum benefits to your oral health.
