By following a few simple steps, you can protect the life and appearance of your veneers. Make Dental Hygiene a Priority Just because you have veneers doesn't mean you no longer need to care for your teeth. You need to brush and floss just like you would have before you got veneers.

These are some additional vitamins and minerals you need for a healthy smile. Phosphorous Phosphorous supports the calcium that is used to create strong teeth.
