Porcelain Veneers Care Buckhead
ow that you’ve got them, you want to keep those new ceramic veneers looking their best, right? Dr. Tekin wants that for you, too, so here’s some information to do just that, as well as make them last as long as possible.
Watch What You Eat!
Even when you don’t have laminate veneers, biting down on or chewing on something very hard can damage teeth. Actually, after Dr. Tekin’s feldspathic porcelain laminate veneers are bonded to the teeth, so entire tooth becomes exceptionally strong. But this doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to chew ice, crack pecans with your teeth or bite off bottle caps! You shouldn’t do this with your natural teeth, nor should you with your great-looking new veneers.
Brush – But Do It Right
Of course, you want – and need – to keep brushing and flossing. Teeth with veneers can still get cavities! Although the veneer, itself, cannot develop decay, the part of the tooth not covered by the veneer still can. When you brush, stay away from abrasive toothpastes (such as those that contain baking soda) that can scratch or dull the porcelain. Dr. Tekin likes the “veneer-friendly” brand, Rembrandt. You’ll also want to make sure the hygienist you see for your regular cleanings is knowledgeable in the appropriate techniques for cleaning teeth with laminate veneer. Dr. Tekin’s hygienists know how to properly clean and care for your veneers.
Dr. Tekin and his staff want your new laminate veneers to be as successful for you as they are meant to be. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call or send us a note to schedule a consultation. We’ll be more than happy to get back to you quickly and confidentially!
