Avoid Tobacco Products
Smoking or using any type of tobacco products can have a huge impact on your porcelain veneers. Fortunately, dental porcelain is stain resistant so you don’t have to worry about staining if you use tobacco products. However, the tar and nicotine can stick to the bonding material used to attach your veneers to your teeth. This might result in a brownish or yellow color appearing around the edges of your veneers if you continue to use tobacco products after getting your veneers.
In addition to these yellow and brown spots, tobacco products can also impact your oral health. Using tobacco products increases your risk of gum disease which can result in gum recession, tooth loss, and jawbone degeneration. If your oral health is poor, it can cause your veneers to fail.
