How to Care for Veneers

Posted .

Do you ever feel ashamed or embarrassed of your smile? Do you have flaws that mar the beauty of your smile? Would you like to boost your confidence? Ask our dentist about veneers. Dental veneers are thin shells made from a tooth-colored material. They are placed over the front of the teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of a tooth that is discolored, misshapen, chipped, cracked, or slightly crooked. Our dentist can help you determine if veneers are right for you!

How long will they last?
Your dental veneers should last from 10 to 15 years if you care for them properly. If your veneers become worn or damaged, they can be replaced or repaired. Ensuring the long lifespan of your veneers is your responsibility.

How do I care for veneers?
First and foremost, practice proper dental hygiene. Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. Visit our office at least twice a year for your routine cleanings and exams. If you play a sport, make sure to wear the proper mouth protection. In addition, never use your teeth as tools. Opening a package with your teeth, chewing ice, and biting your nails can easily chip a dental veneer.
