Ensure that your dental veneers last for years to come by learning how to care for them properly.

Your smile is an investment, and like any investment, you want to get the most out of your smile. This is especially true for people who have enhanced their smiles with dental veneers. Dental veneers can help to correct a whole host of dental concerns, but if you want them to keep your smile beautiful for years to come, you need to take care of them properly. Here are a few tips from our dentist in Lawrence to help you care for your dental veneers properly:

#1. Brush and floss as you would with your natural teeth.

Good oral hygiene is a must for people who have dental veneers. Not only will brushing well twice a day and flossing once a day keep your dental veneers clean, it will also help to keep your natural teeth healthy as well.

#2. Visit your dentist regularly.

Visit your dentist every six months (or as recommended) to keep your teeth and gum tissues as healthy and clean as possible. Regular dental visits will also allow your dentist to closely monitor the health and condition of all your dental restorations, including veneers, so that if any issues should come up, they are resolved as soon as possible before they become urgent.

#3. Stop chewing on nails, pens and other inedible objects.

Many people have a habit of chewing things that they shouldn’t, including pens, fingernails and ice, and you should know that this habit could damage your dental veneers. Try to be conscious about what you put in your mouth, and make an effort to stop chewing on inedible objects.
