Keep These Things in Mind if You Have Dental VeneersIf you have gone through the process of getting veneers, you will want to follow these tips to keep them in optimal condition. They are strong and durable material, but they can still stain or result in problems without proper care and oral care maintenance.

Veneer Maintenance Tips

Dental veneers don't need a very special routine or maintenance. They are an extremely strong and durable material. By finding a good soft-bristled brush you are comfortable with, practice brushing twice each day for at least two minutes. Be sure you floss each day. Don't stress while you floss, they can handle the pressure. Just make sure that you are brushing with a non-abrasive type of toothpaste and you are avoiding using a hard-bristled type of brushes.

Other Areas to Look Out For

If you are a tooth grinder or struggle with bruxism. It's important that you get yourself a good custom night mouth guard. It will keep your teeth from not only breaking, but it can keep them from a twist or turning as well. Nightguards can also eliminate headaches and sore jaw pain.

Be sure to understand that staining products can stain your veneers over time. So, things like coffee, red wine, dark sodas, soy sauce, and other dark berries can be problematic. The other main cause of staining veneers overtime is if you smoke. You may want to consider switching to chewing nicotine gum until you can finally quit for the sake of your veneers.

If you have recently received veneers or you have decided, you want them but would like more information before you are ready to go through with it, contact our office today. We would be happy to schedule a time to discuss the options and what would be best for your situation.
