AFTERCARE

After veneers or crowns are placed, extra care should be taken to maintain a meticulous oral hygiene regime as recommended by your dentist. Although ceramic is a strong material, avoid habits such as opening bottles or packets with the teeth, nail or pen biting. Patients who clench or grind their teeth may also be recommended to wear an occlusal appliance such as a night guard.  As always, regular dental check-ups are advised twice per year, along side hygienist appoints. During these visits the dentist will screen the restorations and surrounding dental health.   

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are Veneers detrimental to my teeth?

Veneers usually involve "preparation of the teeth" meaning that some tooth structure is removed permanently in order for the veneer to fit securely. This process should be done very carefully and minimally to ensure enough enamel is left on the tooth. Minimally invasive preparations, although still permanent, are vital to reduce the risk of sensitivity or nerve damage.

How long to veneers last?

Although we can never decalre that something will last forever, if veneeers and crowns are maintained and care for they can last for a number of decades. Replacement is usually elective, with patients choosing to change the veneers for a fresh look or be more age approprioate.
