5 Tips To Maintain Porcelain Veneers

Some dentists do not provide you with the important details on after-care and maintenance that you might require. However, at J Street Dental Group dental office, we take it as one of our core mandates to help you take care of your new veneers. The following are the most important hacks for maintaining your porcelain veneers:

1. Do Not Disregard Follow-Ups

After you have finalized your first new veneer placement, it is easy to leave and never come back as you prepare to show your smile to the world. Nonetheless, follow-up visits, which are typically scheduled to occur one week later, are there for an important reason, and you have to attend.

During these visits, the treatment process must be assessed and potential issues identified early enough to avoid prolonged difficulties. Admittedly, these visits can be bothersome, but they are extremely necessary for the maintenance of your veneers. Specifically, the dentist uses these visits to evaluate the placement of the porcelain veneers to make sure the process is progressing appropriately.

More significantly, follow-up visits provide a chance to seek clarification or communicate any concerns you might have with the new veneers during the period you have had them after treatment. In addition, the visit gives you the opportunity to learn the kind of maintenance practice needed to preserve the good looks of your upgraded teeth.

2. Seek All The Clarifications You Need

It is important to express the ideas, concerns, and worries that you might have on your mind.

For example, talk about your concerns about your oral care habits and ensure you seek any clarifications you might require. You also need to request all the answers and explanations you require to take care of the veneers and preserve your overall oral health.

Even though veneers are extremely durable, it is possible they could be damaged. Worse, you do not want the veneers to suffer the kind of damage that is extremely expensive to repair. Nonetheless, if you get the right answers, follow the tips provided here, and stick to professional advice from your dentist, you can manage to preserve the veneers for over twenty years.

Veneers are extremely dependable and functional and provide a beautiful and unparalleled appeal, which makes them the best option for enhancing your smile.

3. Stick To Oral Health Processes

Simply because you have glittering new white encasings installed on your teeth does not imply that appropriate health care should be neglected. As a matter of fact, proper dental care is now more vital than ever because the veneer will require all the care it can receive to remain looking as exceptional as it did the first day you got it.

Therefore, this point leads us to the key point. It is important to floss and brush your teeth each day, just as you used to do. In addition, remember to use non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste every day to safeguard your oral health.

4. Safeguard The Veneers From Too Much Grinding

Too many people have formed the habit of grinding and clenching their teeth most of the time, particularly when they are feeling anxious or stressed or when they are deeply asleep. Grinding and clenching are bad for porcelain veneers, and continued pressure and physical stress damage their shiny external surface.

If you are concerned that you might end up clenching or grinding your teeth, it is necessary that you talk to your dentist about it. In reality, you can invest in a bite guard that you can wear when going to sleep to protect your veneers from stress and damage. Therefore, it is helpful to get one fitted and go home with all the accessories you need to safeguard your teeth and your entire investment.

5. Stop Eating Foods That Risk Your Veneers

On the downside, this is one of the minor drawbacks and negative influences of having veneers. You must avoid eating foods that are likely to damage your veneers. On the bright side, most of the foods likely to damage your veneers are also risky for your natural teeth.

For example, avoid chewing on ice or hard sweets, which may cause the veneers to develop unpleasant chips and cracks. On the other hand, you should not worry much about foods that stain your natural teeth. For example, coffee, blueberries, or food colors cannot harmfully alter your veneers. Nonetheless, these foods are likely to stain your natural teeth, which might cause the appearance of an obvious color as time passes.

Final Remarks

Certainly, having a beautiful smile is not the key to happiness, but it can greatly enhance your confidence levels. At the same time, a beautiful smile is a great asset, and being able to smile at the world without worrying about how your teeth look will boost your self-esteem and make your life more enjoyable in general.

By now, you probably have a solid understanding of how porcelain veneers can weaken with time and how you can prevent them from deteriorating. You can avoid replacing your costly veneers. However, we understand that even with the best care possible, plans can still go wrong. In such cases, we encourage you to make an appointment with J Street Dental Group dental office.
