How to Take Care of Veneers

January 10, 2020

Do you want a stunning smile that leaves a lasting impression? Dental veneers in Franklin could be your perfect solution. At Franklin Dental Arts, we specialize in crafting beautiful, natural-looking veneers that transform smiles. But, once you have your veneers, how do you ensure they stay in top-notch condition? Let's delve into it.

Understanding Your Veneers

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. Made from porcelain or resin composite materials, they are durable and resistant to staining. However, like your natural teeth, they need proper care to maintain their luster and longevity. Choosing veneers means you're not just getting a cosmetic treatment; you're making a long-term investment in your smile.

Daily Cleaning is Essential

Just like your natural teeth, veneers require daily brushing and flossing. Use a non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid scratching your veneers. Flossing helps remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth and veneers. Remember, while veneers themselves can't decay, your underlying natural teeth can. Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial to keeping your smile healthy and vibrant.

Regular Dental Check-ups

Routine dental visits are key to ensuring your veneers and overall oral health are in check. At Franklin Dental Arts, we recommend check-ups every six months. During these visits, we'll professionally clean your teeth and veneers, check for any signs of potential problems, and ensure your veneers are still fitting correctly. Regular check-ups are an essential part of your veneer maintenance routine.

Protect Your Veneers

While veneers are durable, they aren't indestructible. Avoid biting hard objects like pens, ice, or your fingernails. If you play sports, consider wearing a mouthguard to protect your veneers from potential damage. And if you're prone to grinding or clenching your teeth at night, a nightguard can help protect your veneers from unnecessary wear and tear.

Avoiding Certain Foods and Beverages

To ensure your veneers maintain their aesthetic appeal, it's advisable to minimize exposure to foods and beverages that could cause staining. Coffee, tea, red wine, and certain fruits like berries have the potential to stain veneers over time. While veneers are more resistant to staining than natural teeth, adopting habits such as rinsing your mouth with water after consuming these items can help keep your veneers looking their best.
