9 WAYS TO CARE OF YOUR VENEER

By: Smileway Dental

  1. Keep them clean
    Brushing at least twice a day and using dental floss are great ways to maintain optimal dental health. Poor hygiene can also lead to gum diseases, which may cause your gums to recede, exposing the borders of veneers and putting them at risk of chipping or detachment. 

     

  2. Use the right toothpaste
    Some toothpaste brands may contain ingredients that are too abrasive for both your teeth and your veneers. Avoid using whitening toothpaste because it contains more abrasives than regular toothpaste 

     

  3. Do not bite into very hard objects
    Do not use your teeth as tools for, say, opening bottles. Unfortunately, such an activity is harmful not just for your teeth, but also for your veneers.  

     

  4. Watch what you eat
    The rule against biting hard stuff also applies to food, such as raw carrots, raw apples, hard chips, nuts and meat cuts that contain bone. Aside from watching out for tough food items, you must also be wary of eating too much. Finally, avoid food that contains lots of colouring. Veneers do get stained over time. 

     

  5. Avoid too much alcohol
    Consuming lots of alcoholic drinks will soften the bonding composites holding the veneers to your teeth. While this doesn’t mean the veneers will come loose, it will make the bonding line more prone to damage and stains.  

     

  6. Address teeth grinding
    Teeth grinding can be a problem for some people and they can’t help it. If you grind your teeth when you’re asleep, check with your doctor on what you can do to manage the issue before and after veneers. 

     

  1. Choose your toothbrush
    Brushing your teeth does wonders for your teeth’s health and your veneers’ longevity, but only if you use the right toothbrush. Pick one that’s not too hard as it will scratch the surface of your veneers. Settle instead for a toothbrush that has soft bristles.
  2. Wear a mouth guard
    To protect your veneers, be sure to wear a mouth guard as this will minimize the impact of any strong force you may encounter, for example during vigorous sport activities.
  3. Visit your dentist regularly
    There are two reasons why you should do this. For one, your dentist can help you avoid gum and mouth infections that can adversely affect the quality and the state of your veneers. Second, they can address any problem that might come up before it gets worse, such as chips, cracks, or deteriorating bonds between your veneers and your teeth.

I recently had an appointment at Smileway Dental Clinic to address a persistent dental issue that had been causing me considerable discomfort. From the moment I walked in, the atmosphere of the clinic was warm and welcoming, which helped to alleviate some of my anxiety. Dr. Lisa took the time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly explain the procedure to me, which helped to alleviate my fears. Her calming demeanour and gentle approach immediately put me at ease. The surgery itself was surprisingly painless, thanks to Dr. Lisa's expertise and skillful technique. She was incredibly patient and attentive throughout the entire procedure, constantly checking in to make sure I was comfortable and pain-free. Overall, my experience at Smileway Dental Clinic was nothing short of exceptional. Dr. Lisa and her team exceeded my expectations in every way, providing me with top-notch dental care in a compassionate and supportive environment. I highly recommend Smileway Dental Clinic to anyone in need of dental services, especially those who may be anxious or fearful about visiting the dentist.

The response from time of my asking for an appointment (though last minute) was handled well. Staff was ensuring that if I couldn't make the 5pm appointed time then she offered to reschedule. So I did for the next day. Dr Edwin was super nice and gave options to see that my swollen due to infection gum was treated with care. I only visit this clinic because of its professionalism. Cheers guys and keep up the great job ! Thanks.

People with dental phobia like me have an awareness that the fear is totally irrational, but with extensive experience in the field of dentistry, Dr Lisa provides efficient and compassionate patient care. I just had my tooth extraction this morning and it was painless.... Furthermore Dr Lisa are very attentive and explain things very thoroughly without pushing for unnecessary treatment. Thank you so much Dr Lisa 🙏
