What Can I Eat And Drink With Snap-On Veneers?
Snap-on veneers are a newer form of dental prosthetics that snap over your existing teeth to cover missing teeth spaces, hide unsightly stains, and more. In many ways, they are a tool that quickly enhances your smile without making it seem like you’ve got anything but natural teeth.
However, very few people know that some removable veneers allow for eating and drinking without creating too much of an issue. The key to ensuring they remain free of chips and other blemishes is to know which foods you can eat without damaging your beautiful smile.
Here are some foods you should be cautious around when wearing your removable veneers for eating and drinking:
Natural teeth are wonderful tools that allow you to pulverize all kinds of food. Snap-on teeth are a little more fragile, though, and you should therefore try to avoid hard foods while wearing your snap-on teeth.
Nuts, sweets, and ice are all examples of things you should stay away from if you want to keep your snap-on veneers from severe and irreparable damage.
In addition to hard foods, you want to avoid indulging in particularly tough foods. Meat, for example, can be quite hard on your veneers and consequently can damage them while you eat if the cut is particularly tough, such as meat that’s close to the bone.
In addition to meats, you want to avoid indulging too much in sticky foods, like gum or taffy, as they’ll stick to the snap-on veneers and increase the risk of damage.
Foods that Leave Stains
While you can wear your removable veneers for eating and drinking, you want to remember that they will stain just like your natural teeth. For that reason, if you want to ensure that your beautiful smile remains so, you should avoid foods that are likely to leave stains while wearing them. Coffee and wine, for example, are known to stain, so it’s best to leave your snap-on veneers out when you enjoy your morning coffee.
What Can I Eat?
In an ideal situation, you’d remove your removable veneers for eating every single time, but it’s not always possible to do so. If removing the veneers is impossible, you should stick to soft foods that aren’t likely to stain your snap-on veneers while you eat. Pasta, soft bread, mashed potatoes, and even chicken cut into small pieces are options you can have while wearing your snap-on veneers.
