Just like the teeth that nature gave you, teeth restored with veneers need gentle brushing and flossing every day. This will remove dental plaque and ensure good gum tissue health around the veneers.
Regular checkups at the dental office will remain as important as always to your oral and general health. Keep in mind that as tough as veneers are, they may not be able to withstand forces that come from using your teeth as tools (to open packages, for example) or biting into very hard foods like candy apples — which isn’t good for your natural teeth, either!
If you grind your teeth at night, we will advise you to get a custom-made hard acrylic nightguard to protect your veneers. Additionally, if you have functional bite problems, they should be corrected before ceramic veneers are constructed.
