You were once self-conscious of your smile, but after getting porcelain veneers in St. Augustine, you can now smile wider than you have been able to in years. This freedom of having a beautiful smile that you can be proud of is something that you want to keep. Just like your natural teeth, veneers must be protected in order to remain in tact for your lifetime.

Although porcelain is a material with high longevity, without the proper care you risk damage to your veneers that could disturb your smile and leave you with chipped teeth or discoloration again. To prevent this, here are three crucial tips for caring for your St. Augustine veneers.

  • Brush and floss regularly. Just as you did prior to your St. Augustine cosmetic dentistry procedure, you should brush and floss your teeth regularly. Cleanliness will keep your teeth lasting as long as possible.
  • Do not bite on objects that are not consumable. Many people have a nervous habit of biting on the top of their pen or pencil. Biting on anything that is not consumable, such as a writing utensil, can hurt your veneers.
  • Wear a protective mouth guard for sports. Your teeth should always be protected against impact in sports. Wearing protective mouth gear can help keep your new veneers safe from an accidental blow to the face.

Caring for your smile is a crucial part of any healthy mouth. If you want help getting a smile makeover using porcelain veneers, St. Augustine cosmetic dentist Dr. Freeman may be able to help.
