Do I Still Have to Take Care of My Teeth if I Have Veneers?

Do You Have To Care For Teeth With Veneers
Posted on 04/02/2018

At Macon Smiles, our mission is to help our patients achieve healthy, beautiful smiles through quality dental treatment. But in addition to providing treatment in our office, we strive to be a comprehensive resource for all your dental questions and needs. Dental veneers are among our most popular cosmetic dental treatments, but often, our patients aren't sure what the care and maintenance procedures are after getting veneers. If you're wondering if you still have to take care of teeth after getting veneers, we can help answer this question for you.

Caring for Teeth with Dental Veneers

First, let's get one thing on the table: without question, it's important to care for your teeth even after getting dental veneers. While veneers do provide a protective covering for the front of your teeth, they leave the back, side, and chewing surfaces exposed and vulnerable to decay. Without conscientious oral hygiene, your teeth could develop cavities, destroying the foundation for your veneers and necessitating costly repairs.

So how do you take care of your teeth when you have dental veneers? Truthfully, the process is essentially the same as before you got them. Simply brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once, and make sure to keep a regular schedule of dental checkups and cleanings. By maintaining a diligent routine of oral hygiene, you can prevent cavities, protect your teeth, and enjoy your veneers for years to come.
