Temporary Veneers stained.... #DrSoftTouch #realself100

Hello Marcia,
Sorry to hear that you have pretty bad staining on your temporaries.  Temporary veneers are usually only worn 2-3 weeks, so are you expecting to get your permanent ones soon?  Unfortunately, temporary veneers stain pretty easily because the material from which they are made is very porous, which means that stains can get into them and get trapped.  Besides brushing them with toothpaste, I would just recommend that you let your dentist know what's happened, so he/she can possibly get you in a little sooner to have your permanent veneers placed.  Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
