Once You Get Veneers, We Must Always Keep Your Teeth Covered
Posted on 12/5/2022 by office
Do you have dental flaws that you would like to cover-up? Perhaps dental veneers would be a good solution for you. Dental veneers are useful to create an even gum line and a symmetrical smile. If you have stained or chipped teeth, veneers will cover your existing teeth. They are a popular treatment for individuals desiring an improved smile.
Dental veneers are custom-made coverings for your teeth. They fit over your tooth and are meant to improve the tooth's cosmetics and hide defects. This is a long-term solution as dental veneers are bonded to the tooth.
Why Teeth Need to be Covered After Getting Dental Veneers
A dental veneer typically lasts around eight years. They do not require any special care other than regular brushing, flossing, and visits to our office. If they are properly cared for, then they can last longer.
However, it is important to have the tooth covered indefinitely after having a dental veneer. In the process of placing the dental veneer, we may have had to trim the existing tooth. If the veneer is removed or damaged, that tooth may be sensitive to cold foods or liquids.
How to Care for Your Dental Veneers
Caring for your dental veneers is the same as caring for your other teeth. Brushing two times each day for two minutes and flossing daily are great ways to protect the veneers. You may also want to wear a mouthguard at night if you grind or clench your teeth while you sleep. It is also beneficial to avoid eating very hard foods like nuts or cracking shells with the front veneers.
Lastly, professional cleanings every six months and yearly exams are highly recommended. Give our office a call today to schedule your next appointment.
