Special Considerations When You Have Dental Veneers

Posted on 11/25/2016 by Alicia Knaysi

Some people are worried that they will have to do something different when they have dental veneers. The truth is, there are very few things that you will have to do differently than you should when you are caring for regular teeth.

If you wouldn't do it with your regular teeth, like open a bottle of soda or beer, you shouldn't do it with veneers, either. However, most things that you did to care for your regular teeth carry over into the care for veneers.

Keeping Your Dental Veneers Looking Great

Dental veneers need regular maintenance, just like your teeth do. You need to use a non-abrasive toothpaste to brush your teeth twice each day. You also need to make sure to floss your teeth with veneers just like you would your regular teeth. That is all exactly the same as if you were not wearing veneers.

The only thing you need to make sure you are careful of is not chewing on anything that would bend the veneer. Since veneers are made of porcelain, and porcelain is made of glass, if you were to bend your veneer, it would shatter in much the same way that your window would if you tried to bend it around a corner.

If you want to find out any other special instructions to keeping your dental veneers looking great, then speak to your dentist about it at your next appointment. If you have not yet gotten dental veneers because you were worried they would be hard to care for, relax and know that they are not.

Contact our office the next time you see him or her, and find out if your teeth and your smile could be improved with the look of dental veneers.
