How to Take Care of Your Dental Veneers

Posted .

Americans spend millions of dollars on the appearance of their teeth every year. Having flaws in your smile can be embarrassing, and this causes many people have issues with their self-confidence. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to attain a more beautiful smile. And when you’re considering your options, please don’t forget about dental veneers.

Dental veneers are a thin shell, typically made of porcelain or a composite resin, that is custom made to cover flawed teeth. Veneers can be used to fix a number of issues, such as chipped, stained, worn, misaligned, uneven, or abnormally spaced teeth. These veneers are bonded to your teeth, making them extremely sturdy.

Of course, veneers will still need to be cared for—though caring for them won’t require much more effort than caring for your teeth like you normally would. If you’re interested in caring for your veneers, you should remember to brush and floss your teeth every day. You should also visit a dentist twice a year. But please don’t brush your teeth too hard, and use non-abrasive toothpaste when you brush. Finally, if you have dental veneers, please don’t misuse your teeth by biting your nails or chewing on pens or ice.
