How to Take Care of Veneers
- Posted on: Jul 15 2018
Veneers can be seen as a tool to fix almost all types of cosmetic dental issues including chipped teeth, stained teeth, small holes or pits in the teeth, uneven, crooked, or undersized teeth, and spaces between the teeth. By sanding down your existing teeth and covering them in a thin porcelain shell (your veneers), dental veneers can quite literally transform your smile. One of the best ways to make sure your veneers stay looking as good as new is to take good care of them. But how? Let’s take a closer look.
Some people assume that because veneers are made of a porous material like porcelain, that you don’t have to worry about brushing them. However, that’s simply not the case. Brushing your veneers will not only keep them healthy, but it will also keep your gums and surrounding teeth in good shape.
Even though your dental veneers are durable, make sure that you are still careful with them. For instance, although you typically don’t have to worry about watching what you eat when you have veneers, make sure that you aren’t using them as a tool to do things like taking off clothing tags or opening beer bottles. Although those are good party tricks, they can easily chip or crack your veneers.
Get Regular Exams
The Canadian Dental Association recommends that everybody gets their teeth regularly cleaned by a dental professional and if you have dental veneers, you are no exception. During your bi-annual cleanings, Dr. Lenny Slepchik will not only clean your teeth, but he will also examine your veneers to make sure they are in good shape.
When it comes to taking care of your veneers, it luckily really isn’t that difficult. If you want to learn more about dental veneers, schedule a consultation with Dr. Lenny Slepchik at our Montreal office today and call (514) 875-7971.
