18 May Is Whitening toothpaste a good choice for e-max veneers?
Do you need a whitening toothpaste to keep your porcelain veneers white and stain-free?
Contrary to popular belief, whitening toothpaste is actually not recommended for use when you have e-max veneers. In fact, it can cause harm to your veneers. This is because of the abrasive materials found on a whitening toothpaste.
As you use it over time, the components can trap pigmentation and lead to discoloration of your veneers. As a result, it can cause more harm than good to your porcelain veneers due to the continued use of this type of toothpaste.
Since porcelain veneers are naturally stain-resistant, there is no need to use an abrasive toothpaste. Instead, choose a mild one that will not scratch up your veneers while keeping them clean.
