Dental veneers are high-quality cosmetic shells designed to look like tooth faces that are cemented to the front teeth to enhance their quality and appearance to improve your smile. There are many uses of dental veneers, from improving the color and crookedness of teeth to covering minor tooth gaps so that the teeth look well spaced. While dental veneers are extremely durable, they require proper care to remain in good shape for many years.
Dental veneers require the same treatment as natural teeth, which means daily brushing and flossing to remove plaque. For two minutes twice a day, brush the teeth with a non-abrasive toothpaste to avoid scratching veneers. Brushing with a toothpaste for sensitive teeth can improve teeth that have dental veneers.
We encourage you to avoid harmful tooth habits to protect your dental veneers. Habits that can harm your teeth, such as opening bottles with your teeth and chewing on ice or your fingernails, could crack the veneers to the point that they need to be replaced, as well as damage your natural teeth. Limit the use of certain beverages such as soda and alcohol that could reduce the quality of your dental veneers.
Maintaining regular visits with the dentist allow us to ensure your veneers are always in good health. We invite you to speak with Dr. Wallace Lunden about whether you are a candidate for dental veneer care in Minneapolis, Minnesota, by contacting Cedar Point Dentistry at 612-822-2176 today.
