Are dental veneers difficult to care for?

Dental veneers do not require any special care other than regular brushing, flossing, and visits to the prosthodontist. We recommend you use an ultra-soft toothbrush and minimally abrasive toothpaste to prevent excessive wear to the veneer. You may also want to switch to a waxed floss or water flosser to avoid pulling around the edges of your veneer. During your biannual dental checkups, we’ll examine your veneers for signs of wear or damage and partner with you to make repairs to preserve your porcelain veneer. Professional cleanings every 6 months and yearly exams are highly recommended.

We will most likely recommend a nightguard for patients, who suffer from bruxism, to protect their natural teeth and veneers. Patients should also avoid biting their nails and using their teeth as tools that could significantly damage the veneers.
