I’ve wondered if Cavitron can be safe to use on porcelain veneers? I just got some and I want to make sure they’re well taken care of.
You’re smart to ask this question. It’s an ultra-sonic scaler, which can be dangerous for porcelain veneers. However, if your dentist is a skilled cosmetic dentist, he’s likely trained his hygienists on the best ways to clean them. If a hygienist is skilled, Cavitron will be fine for your porcelain veneers. They’ll have to be careful not to dwell on the margins, but it’s fine to use.
The one thing you absolutely do NOT want, is to let your hygienist use a Prophy Jet. These will completely ruin the glaze on your porcelain veneers. Before you know it, they are dull and picking up stains.
You spent too much money on your new smile to have it ruined by an ill-informed hygienist.
