Tips for maintaining your Veneers
Avoid Chewing Hard Foods
One of the most important tips for maintaining your veneers is to avoid chewing hard foods. Chewing hard foods can put a lot of pressure on your veneers and may cause them to crack or break. Instead, stick to softer foods that are easier on your veneers.
Be Careful with Your Teeth
In addition to being careful with your teeth, you also need to be careful with your gums. Brushing too hard or flossing too aggressively can damage your gums, which can lead to gum recession. Gum recession can cause your veneers to become loose and fall off.
Avoid Staining Foods and beverages
Another important tip for maintaining your veneers is to avoid staining foods and beverages. Coffee, tea, red wine, and cigarettes can all stain your veneers and make them look yellow or discolored. To help prevent staining, brush your teeth after consuming these items. You can also use a straw when drinking beverages to help keep them from coming into contact with your veneers.
Visit us Regularly
It’s important you visit Buchanan Dental Arts regularly for checkups and cleanings, even if you don’t have veneers. This will help ensure that your veneers are in good condition and that your mouth is healthy overall. In every visit, be sure to let us know that you have veneers so we can take proper care of them during your appointment.
Don’t Use Whitening Products
While you may be tempted to use whitening products on your teeth, it’s best to avoid them if you have veneers. Whitening products can damage the surface of your veneers and make them more susceptible to staining in the future.
