Sure its fine to maintain porcelain veneers with an electric oral b toothbrush.  You can maintain them just like normal teeth.  Enjoy.  Dr. David Frey

Water floss

Use a soft brush, at least twice a day, floss and then i recommend using Waterpick , water floss is a great idea but do not abuse from it and use it properly, just once a day.

Electric Toothbrush and Veneers

+1

I am not sure about Braun Electric Toothbrush, but I would think as long as you use a soft brush and follow the instructions, your veneers should be fine. A hard bristle brush and vigorous brushing can be hard on the gums. We use Rotadent in our practice. It has three ush heads and speeds. If you brush too hard, it will stop and let you know. It an ony be purchased in dental offices, I think it is the best for your gums.and not abrasive on the enamel or procelain veneers. I would continue with your Braun and be mindful of how hard you brush. Enjoy your veneers!

I love the Braun Triumph

You should have no worries at all with your toothbrush.  Mechanical toothbrushes take a lot of guesswork out of the technique to brushing teeth.  You are fine, just be sure to use it.

Softest works Best

+1

Any toothbrush is fine to use on your veneers.  However, you must be cautious when brushing at the gumline.  If the bristles of your toothbrush are too hard or abrasive or if you tend to use a lot of force when brushing, you run the risk of causing gum recession which could expose the margins of your veneers and the discolored root portion of your tooth.  Always try to use the softest toothbrush available to minimize the chances of causing tooth brush abrasion.  A softer toothbrush will also allow you to clean a larger surface area increasing efficiency and keeping yours gums nice and tight around your veneers.
