VENEER-SAFE PRODUCTS FOR YOUR
new smile
USING GENTLE PRODUCTS KEEPS VENEERS
LOOKING THEIR BEST AND ENSURES “YOU’RE
INSIDE
tip
If you plan to whiten your teeth
before getting veneers, wait a
few weeks to match the new
veneers. That initial brightness
on the first day after professional
whitening typically fades after
the teeth rehydrate.
NOT DOING HARM TO YOUR GUMS AND RUINING
WHAT THE DENTIST SAYS
“When you have veneers, you
want to keep them clean, but
you don’t want to overbrush.
The Quikee tooth polish helps
gently remove stains throughout the day,” Dr. Smigel says.

THE LOOK OF YOUR SMILE,” DR. GOLDSTEIN SAYS.
TOM’S OF MAINE WICKED
FRESH MOUTHWASH
VIOLIGHT SLIM SONIC
TOOTHBRUSH
Veneers are custom-designed
to fit your gums, which is why
maintaining their health is
crucial in keeping them looking
good. This rinse is free of harsh
chemicals, which are known to
lead to red, aggravated gums.
$5, tomsofmaine.com
Cute and compact, this is the
first electric toothbrush with
a snap-on vented cap, making
it perfect for travel. Plus, it
pulses 22,000 times per minute
to deep clean. $15, violight.com
WHAT THE DENTIST SAYS
“Tom’s of Maine rinses are
alcohol-free and use essential
oils of peppermint and thyme
to clean without irritation,” says
Duxbury, MA, cosmetic dentist
Andrew Wiemeyer, DDS.
WHAT THE DENTIST SAYS
“As long as you don’t lay into
that area between the gum and
the tooth with a lot of pressure,
sonic toothbrushes work very
well on veneers,” Dr. Cohen says.
BEAUTY INNOVATION!
ZELLIES XYLITOL GUM
Studies show xylitol can reduce
the level of harmful bacteria
in the mouth and risk for cavities.
Chewing xylitol gum after meals
can help prevent decay and
plaque build up around the edges
of veneers. $12.50 for 150 packets,
zelliescleanwhiteteeth.com
WHAT THE DENTIST SAYS
“Xylitol is an anticavity ingredient.
It helps produce enzymes that
knock out some of the bacteria in
the mouth,” Dr. Cohen says. “It’s
not a mandatory ingredient for
maintaining veneers, but it doesn’t
harm them.” NB
