One of the best things about porcelain veneers is how resistant they are to staining. If you’re a tea or coffee-drinker and worried about your veneers staining? Breathe easy. Quality porcelain veneers don’t tend to stain as easily as composite veneers or natural teeth.

Most staining on porcelain veneers occurs over a long period of time and tends to be at the junction of your veneer and natural tooth beneath. However, with regular maintenance and cleans, these areas can be polished back to their brilliant whiteness. Porcelain veneers remain white and sparkly with good care, which is just one more reason why they are the superior option to lesser materials.
