I’m thinking of getting porcelain veneers. I really want a beautiful smile. However, I have been trying to give up smoking and as a result, have started vaping. Do you know if vaping will cause my porcelain veneers to stain?
It is great that you have quit smoking. I feel certain you will see many health benefits as a result. As for your porcelain veneers picking up stains from the vape, I have great news for you. The glaze that is on your porcelain veneers makes them very stain resistant. In fact, they are more stain resistant than even your natural teeth. As long as the glaze is healthy and remains intact and you maintain your oral health, you should have no problems. I recommend that you brush with Supersmile Toothpaste, which is great at keeping cosmetic dental work its shinest and stain free.
Who Should Place Your Porcelain Veneers?
I can tell you are trying to really think this through and give your smile makeover its best shot. One thing you need to be aware of is the biggest factor in how beautiful your smile makeover will be is the skill and artistry of the dentist who does them.
Cosmetic dentistry is not a recognized specialty, therefore any general dentist can call themselves a cosmetic dentist. Compound that issue with the fact that smile makeovers are not taught in dental school and patients are often left very vulnerable. There are countless cosmetic dentistry horror stories and you do not want to be one of them.
I highly recommend that you have an AACD accredited cosmetic dentist do your porcelain veneers. These dentists had to pass technical exams with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry as well as demonstrate the artistry in their cosmetic work to a board of examiners. Only the top 1-3% of cosmetic dentists reach accreditation. Any one of them can give you a stunning smile you will be proud to share.
