How do I care for my dental veneers?

Dental veneers in Columbus, MS, are made from porcelain or other composite materials, shaped into shells, and made to fit your teeth in particular. They show immediate cosmetic results by covering unattractive features with a seamless fit. In some cases, a dental veneer may relieve tooth sensitivity by covering an exposed surface that might be thin enough to let hot or cold substances into your tooth.

Veneers are a resilient restoration because the porcelain or composite material is strong and mimics the look of your natural tooth. And like a natural tooth, your veneer requires daily maintenance to keep it clean.

Care Instructions for Dental Veneers

With proper care, your veneers may last for years and even up to a decade. Your cosmetic dentist recommends the following maintenance steps:

  • Brush and floss twice daily
  • Avoid teeth grinding or wear a nightguard
  • Wear oral protection – for sports or other physical activities; we recommend a mouthguard
  • Don’t bite hard or sticky surfaces – we recommend you avoid chewing ice, hard candy, and other sticky foods
