Greetings, friends and family! Today we’re here to talk about how to take care of your porcelain veneers. With the proper care and consideration, porcelain veneers can be a long-lasting solutions to dental problems like:
- Chipped and Worn Out Teeth
- Misaligned or Misshapen Teeth
- Tooth Discoloration
So once you’ve made the choice and gone through the procedure with Bedford Dental Group and have successfully acquired your porcelain veneers in Beverly Hills, CA, how should you properly take care of them?
One thing that’s crucial is to schedule and keep your follow-up visit. We’ll assess how your laminates have been placed as well as how the gum tissue is responding to the work we’ve done. We can also answer any questions you might have. Also, make sure to continue to schedule your regular dental check ups so that we can see how you and your new smile is doing!
One of the great things about porcelain veneers is that you can brush and floss just as you normally would in order to maintain optimum oral health. Use any non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste without having to worry about damaging the laminates of your teeth. What’s important is to develop and maintain great brushing and flossing habits. This will ensure and fortify the lifespan of your lamination restorations for years and years to come.
It’s important that you stay transparent about your habits with your dentist. If you are known to be an avid clencher or tooth grinder, let us know. We can fabricate a bite guard for you to utilize at night in order to minimize the wear and tear and stress that grinding puts on your teeth.
Consider also limiting hard candy as much as you can. This is probably a lot to ask for some, but it’s also not a bad idea to limit your coffee intake as well as other stain-inducing food and drink. By being conscious and selective about what you eat and drink, you can extend the life of your porcelain veneers significantly.
Anyway, we hope some of this helps. We’re excited about your porcelain veneers and we hope that you are, too! We look forward to seeing you at your next scheduled check-up at Bedford Dental Group.
