What are Porcelain Veneers? Veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the front surface of teeth. They can conceal a variety of cosmetic flaws, including chips, dental discoloration, and minor misalignment. At Dentalb Art , we typically use E-max material to craft our veneers, which is a form of specially treated ceramic that is thinner, but more durable than traditional veneer material.
We recommend IPS E-max porcelain veneers to qualifying patients, for long-lasting and natural-looking results.

How To Maintain Your Dental Hygiene: Tips For Coffee Lovers
1-Whether you drink it black or as a fancy latte, coffee will stain your teeth. But if you maintain good dental hygiene you can continue to enjoy the beverage you love without worrying too much about your enamel. Below you’ll find tips that will help you maintain your dental hygiene so you can still have a nice brew every day:
2-Wait 30 minutes before brushing: Drinks that are high in acid (wine, lemonade, coffee, so...da) can soften our enamel. If you brush your teeth immediately after drinking coffee, it can further damage the enamel and the dentin that lies underneath it (the layer of tissue that lives under the enamel). If you wait 30 minutes after drinking coffee before brushing your teeth, you are giving the enamel a chance to harden again to protect the dentin. 3-Drink water: You should already be drinking water throughout the day to keep hydrated, and after coffee is no exception. After you’ve finished a cup of coffee, drink plain water to rinse your teeth off. The water will act as a buffer to the acid in the coffee that is now in your saliva. Use a straw: Drinking iced coffee through a straw may seem like a no-brainer, whereas drinking hot coffee through a straw may seem unnatural. However, drinking coffee (at any temperature) through a straw helps keep stains away. When you use a straw, you are bypassing your teeth and the acid from the coffee doesn’t have a chance to stain and ruin your enamel.
4-Drink, don’t sip: You don’t have to chug your coffee, but taking leisurely sips can result in more staining. The faster you drink your coffee, the less acid you’re exposing your teeth to.
5-Use an electric toothbrush: Electric toothbrushes are more effective at removing surface stains from our teeth than manual ones. Furthermore, electric toothbrushes do the work for you, and some even come with timers so you know you’re brushing your teeth for the Canadian Dental Association’s recommended 2-4 minutes.
6-Get your teeth professionally whitened: If the coffee stains are highly visible, you can have your teeth whitened. Do not use an over-the-counter product. Instead, visit your dentist and have your teeth professionally whitened. Drugstore whiteners are not as effective and can actually damage your gums.
7-Visit your dentist regularly: You should get your teeth professionally cleaned about every six months. Moreover, a professional cleaning can remove some surface stains caused by coffee. Your dentist will also check for signs of gum disease and other oral problems, and come up with treatment plans (if necessary) to ensure your mouth is in good health.
8-Brush, floss and use mouthwash: Brush your teeth twice a day and make sure to incorporate flossing (once a day) and mouthwash (after you brush) into your tooth brushing routine. Your dentist can recommend a mouthwash for you to use and show you the proper way to floss (if you don’t know how to do it already).
