How to Extend the Life of Dental Veneers & Crowns

Dental veneers are quickly becoming one of the most popular and effective ways to improve the way your smile looks. When someone with veneers smiles, everyone can’t help but notice, and in the best way possible! Even though dental veneers are a great choice for any adult who wants to improve the look of their smile, it is important to do certain things if you want your investment to last as long as possible. Let’s go over some of the most important things you can do to keep your veneers and smile healthy for the rest of your life so you can smile, chew, and laugh with ease.

Dental Hygiene is Important

One of the most important things you can do to make sure your dental veneers last as long as possible is to take care of your teeth at home. Some people might think this makes sense. You shouldn’t think that just because you have veneers, you don’t have to brush and floss your teeth every day. Some people think that since veneers are not part of your natural tooth, they don’t need as much care as real teeth, but this is not true at all! If you want your veneers to last as long as possible, it’s important to take care of the rest of your teeth.

Gum disease and tooth damage are two of the biggest things that can cause veneers to fail in the long run. Make sure to brush your teeth at least twice a day for a full two minutes, especially with non-abrasive toothpaste (to prevent any kind of scratching) and an electric toothbrush would be even better for the job! Flossing is an important part of dental care because it helps you clean between your teeth and along the edges of your new veneers.

One of the most common places for plaque and food bits to get stuck is in the space between your teeth. To keep your oral health in good shape, you should floss at least once a day. Don’t forget to have your veneers cleaned and polished at least twice a year as part of your regularly scheduled dental checkups and cleanings.

Always Wear a Nightguard

The medical term for people who bite or grind their teeth while they sleep is “bruxism.” If they do, a night guard can keep you from getting hurt or spending more money than you need to. Getting a night guard after getting veneers can help reduce the chance of breaking or chipping the veneer or another tooth. This is very important if you grind your teeth in your sleep. When you clench and grind your teeth, you increase the chance that you will hurt your veneers or other dental work.

Nightguards are simple dental devices that can be made in just a few minutes and put in a patient’s mouth during a short office visit. Each one is made to fit your smile in a way that makes it as comfortable and useful as possible. You are most likely to clench or grind your teeth while you sleep, so it is important to protect them by wearing a night guard. Even if you have never clenched or ground your teeth before, Dr. Motiwala may still tell you to use this protection device to keep your new veneers from getting damaged.

Always use a Mouthguard When Playing Sports

In the same way that you need to wear a night guard, you need to wear some kind of mouth protection whenever you do something fun. We strongly recommend that you wear a sports mouthguard whenever you do a sport or a hobby that puts your face or mouth at risk of getting hurt. Ice skating, soccer, and riding are all examples of this kind of sport. This way, any hits or bumps to the mouth won’t quickly ruin your veneers.

Start Early Treatment for Gum Disease

When a person has gum disease, also called periodontal disease, the infection it causes can put their cosmetic dental work or their smile in general at risk. The same rules apply to veneers as to any other material. If you have any kind of gum disease, you always run the risk of bone loss in the future, which could lead to the loss of teeth in the worst cases. This common gum infection can be stopped from spreading if treatment starts early. It’s important to remember that gum disease signs can often get worse in people who smoke and who have diabetes. Talking to Dr. Motiwala about this is important if you are thinking about whether or not dental veneers are the right choice for you.

Whether you had gum disease before you got veneers or you got it after your smile makeover, it is important for your dental health to make sure gum disease is treated and kept in check. This is because gum disease can cause problems with your mouth that are very bad for your health. Even if you have veneers, gum disease can be controlled well with the help of a dentist and by taking care of your teeth.

Should I Get Dental Veneers?

It’s important to remember that taking care of your dental veneers in the same way you take care of your normal teeth will help you get the most use out of them and make sure they last as long as possible. Dental veneers could be a great choice for people who want to take their smile to the next level, as long as they follow good dental health practices, get regular dental care, and work with an experienced dental team. At the Dr. Motiwala Dental Clinic & Implant Centre, Dr. Motiwala will meet with you one-on-one to talk about veneers and answer any questions or worries you may have about your teeth.
