How To Care For Veneers

It is no surprise that the veneer craze is catching on like wild fire–especially in Hollywood. Porcelain veneers are custom porcelain shells that bond to your teeth to create a lasting, durable and stain-resistant smile. They can change the size, shape, color and position of your teeth. Below are some tips on how to properly care for porcelain veneers.

Treat Them Like Natural Teeth
Once you have veneers, you treat them with the same care you would with your natural teeth. We suggest brushing twice a day, flossing once a day and using a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste.

Visit The Dentist For A Follow Up Appointment
A week after the procedure, you will visit the dentist for a follow up appointment. The dentist will make sure that your mouth is not having a negative reaction to the veneers.

Avoid Grinding and Clenching Teeth
Do you have a habit of grinding your teeth? If you have veneers, you should not grind or clench your teeth.

If you want a straighter and brighter smile, veneers are the way to go. Our Dentists at Fairfield Dental Arts have participated in extensive Cosmetic Dental training and are experts in porcelain veneers. Call 203-254-3780 to schedule an appointment for a consultation.
