How to Care for a New Set of Veneers

Posted on 12/15/2019 by Sandra Embree
How to Care for a New Set of VeneersAny person who has ever had braces knows how difficult it can be to take care of gums, wires and teeth all at the same time.

However, unlike taking care of braces, taking care of veneers is quite simple. While it's highly advisable to be mindful of certain things, there is no special care required to take care of your veneers. As a matter of fact, taking care of your new veneers entails following these steps.

Practice Great Oral Hygiene

If you already practice great oral hygiene, then you do not necessarily have to change anything. All you have to do is to brush your teeth, floss and then rinse. When brushing your teeth, it's important to use a non-abrasive toothbrush. Also, you should remember to brush your teeth at least twice every day.

Avoid Grinding

Bruxism is a common disorder where patients grind their teeth while sleeping. Grinding teeth is not great for veneers mainly because it places lots of pressure on the teeth. Apart from being bad for the teeth, the grinding of teeth is also bad for the gums and jaws. If you have noticed jaw pain in the morning or even get woken up in the middle of the night due to grinding your teeth, then we want to see you to help correct the situation.

Chew Wisely

While veneers can last for a long time, they are still susceptible to breaking and chipping. Thus, it's important to avoid chewing on hard materials such as ice, fingernails and pens.

Protect Your Smile

While physical activities are an integral part of our overall health, they are not without risk. Thus, to protect both our smile and veneers, it's important to protect our mouth from potential trauma using a mouth guard.

If you plan on having a new set of veneers, then you should make a point of contacting us so that we can schedule an appointment. On the other hand, if you are facing any challenges with your veneers then you should reach out to us as soon as possible so we can try to help fix the problem.
