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 can say from my own experience as a doctor, they are good. Appointments are kinda hard to get. Do you know why? You get what you want and what you need. Most likely you’ll leave the clinic with a smile on your face.
