Veneers are a unique way that teeth can be restored. By adding veneers, a smile can be restored by closing gaps in teeth, covering dark stains or making teeth more even. Dental technology has come a long way over the years, providing dentists with new and exciting ways to create lovely smiles.
Once veneers are complete, you will marvel at your new smile. It is important to learn how to properly care for your veneers to ensure your new smile will last for as long as possible.
Caring for Veneers
So, how do you care for veneers? Do you follow the same care techniques as your regular teeth? In a way, yes. To begin, you will need to brush your veneers and floss twice daily, as you should with permanent teeth. You want to ensure no bacteria or plague remains in the teeth so that you do not have tooth decay or other issues in the future.
It may also be recommended that you wear a night guard during sleeping. If you grind your teeth, you can end up chipping or breaking off your new veneers while you sleep. Avoid this issue by wearing a mouth guard to stop any grinding problem. A mouth guard will stop your teeth from touching, which eliminates any grinding.
You will also need to avoid using your teeth for items that are not food. Many people use teeth to eat ice or chew their nails, or bite on other things. This is a mistake. You can easily damage your veneers and they will need to be replaced.
By simply treating your new veneers with care, you can avoid any need for replacement due to damage. Contact our office today to find out more about veneers and what you need to do to protect your new smile, making your veneers last for years to come!
