How to Take Care of Dental Veneers

Veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment used to correct chipped, worn, or misshapen teeth. Just like natural teeth, veneers require maintenance to ensure longevity. Caring for veneers is not as difficult as you may think. Here’s what you need to know about taking care of veneers. 

How To Take Care Of Dental Veneers

Dental Hygiene

Taking care of veneers begins with your everyday oral hygiene. You must brush, floss, and rinse diligently to clean your teeth and prevent plaque buildup. Some best practices for oral hygiene include:

Avoid Staining Agents

Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, but they can become stained over time just like natural teeth. To keep your veneers looking bright and shiny for longer, avoid stain-causing beverages and foods as much as possible. Smoking will also lead to discoloration. Staining agents to avoid include:

Avoid Grinding and Chewing

Grinding or clenching teeth at night puts a lot of strain on veneers, jaw joints and natural teeth. Speak to your dentist about getting a nightguard to protect your veneers.

Veneers are made for chewing regular foods, but not for excessive chewing on non-food materials like pens, nails, etc. Taking care of veneers involves limiting your grinding and chewing on hard items so that your teeth and veneers don’t endure unnecessary strain.
