Do You Need to Be Extra Careful with Dental Veneers?
Posted on 5/15/2018 by Office
Many people are unsure of how to take care of dental veneers. They understand that they are thin, but they attach to the teeth, so that makes them stronger, right?
The truth is, they are a bit stronger when attached to the teeth, but their delicate nature is still something you must be aware of. When it comes to caring for dental veneers, you need to make sure you are careful with them. If you are not, they could come loose or break. This means you would have to get them replaced.
Caring for Dental Veneers
The most important thing about caring for dental veneers is to make sure to take care of them as well as you would your natural teeth. This means brushing at least two times each day. Plus, you need to rinse with mouthwash at least one time each day, and floss at least one time each day.
This helps to keep your entire mouth healthy, not just the veneers. You also need to be gentle with them just like you should be with your natural teeth.
This means not trying to open packages with your teeth, or opening bottles with your teeth instead of a bottle opener. If it would probably damage your natural teeth, then it will very likely damage your veneers.
