Can You Eat With Veneers?

Veneers are a great way to fix a variety of aesthetic imperfections, such as severely stained teeth, chipped teeth, and so on. One common question that the patients who get veneers ask us is if they will impact their lifestyle in any way. More specifically, they want to know if veneers will make eating more difficult.

The short answer is no, veneers should make eating difficult. If they are properly fitted, then veneers shouldn't affect your biting, chewing, or the normal function of your teeth.

That said, there are some foods that you should avoid after getting veneers in Frisco to ensure that they will last for longer.

Foods You Can and Can't Eat with Veneers

The list below is influenced by the type of veneers you get. Porcelain veneers, for instance, are more durable than composite resin veneers or no prep ones and they are less prone to chipping.

With that in mind, here are a few instructions you should consider after getting veneers:

  • Avoid Hard Foods - While veneers are a great cosmetic option and can last for decades with the right care, they are not as strong as your natural teeth. Hard candies like jawbreakers, bone-in meat, and hard foods like raw carrots or apples are best to be avoided as they increase the risks of chipping your veneers.
  • Some Foods Should Be Eaten in Moderation and With Caution - Foods like corn on the cob or potato chips are best to be eaten with caution. You should bite gently on the corn and cut the meat into tiny pieces before chewing it rather than biting directly from it.
  • Drink Dark Liquids in Moderation - You may be happy to learn that you don't have to give up your morning cup of Joe after getting veneers, especially in the case of porcelain veneers. However, the key as with everything is moderation. Excessive consumption of dark liquids, such as coffee, black tea, red wine, and so on, can stain the bonding material, leaving a brownish tinge along the edges of the teeth.
  • It's a Good Idea to Give up Smoking - Not only does smoking come with significant health risks, but it can also stain the veneers as well as the teeth next to them.
