Three Safe Ways to Care for New Veneers

Porcelain Veneers New Braunfels TX

Cosmetic veneers are an amazing option for that “go big or go home” smile makeover. Crafted from dazzling porcelain, they create a straighter and brighter looking smile from the very moment they’re bonded in place. You want them to last as long as possible, but they’re not invincible. Here are some important steps to follow to help your porcelain veneers look their very best.

Floss Your Veneers Daily

Yes, flossing is safe for dental veneers. It’s not flossing that you have to worry about! Although your veneers won’t get cavities, the tooth behind them can still decay if it’s not flossed on a daily basis. To clean between, wrap the floss around the side of your tooth and rub it up and down several times (as well as just under the gums.) If the floss catches, slide it out sideways. Water flossing works too.

Sleep in a Nightguard

A lot of us will clench and grind our teeth when we’re stressed or struggling to sleep well. Investing in a protective nightguard will cushion all of that tension so that it doesn’t reach your new veneers. It’s better to wear out a bite splint than it is to fracture off a porcelain veneer or tooth.

Drink Plenty of Water and Rinse Regularly

Dark liquids can stain anything, whether it’s a white shirt or your teeth. Sipping through a straw can limit dark liquid’s contact on your new veneers. Or better yet, drink plenty of water to constantly “rinse” your mouth throughout the day. Staying hydrated will limit stain buildup on teeth and veneers alike. It can also help to rinse your mouth between meals.
