Dental Veneers Post Op

How to Care for Veneers

After having dental veneers placed, there are a few things to keep in mind to maintain the veneers as best as possible. Veneers should last for around 10 years, and it is important for patients to understand aftercare in order for the restoration to last as long as possible. As​ long as patients care for their veneers properly, they can expect many years out of their restoration.

As with natural teeth, avoid chewing excessively hard foods on the veneered teeth (hard candy, ice, bones, etc.) because, under extreme forces, the porcelain or composite veneer can be broken from the teeth.

Visit us for examinations and check-ups at your regular six-month examination periods or during recommended recall visits. Often problems that are developing with veneers can be found at an early stage and repaired easily, whereas waiting for a longer time may require the procedure to be redone.

To provide optimum longevity for your restorations, and to prevent future dental decay or supporting tissues breakdown, your Doctor may recommend that you follow one or some of the following:
__ Brush with a fluoride toothpaste
__ Floss after eating and before bedtime
__ Use a fluoride rinse as directed

We expect that you will receive years of service from these veneers; however, certain situations occasionally occur that necessitate restoration or replacement. Extreme force or trauma can break your veneers just as it can break your natural teeth. Use care in sports or other potentially traumatic situations. Do not bite extremely hard objects with a single tooth. Breakage usually requires remaking the restoration, but occasionally it can be repaired.
