Taking care of your veneers

taking-care-of-your-veneersCongratulations! You’ve just received your brand new veneers. Your smile has never looked this good, and you probably want to make sure it stays that way! Good veneers can last a long, long time, but only if you take good care of them along the way.

Here are some tips to make your veneers last a decade and even more:

Treat Them Like Teeth
You can ensure that your veneers last a long time if you brush them with the same care that you would your original teeth. Brush twice and floss once daily for best results!

Regular Cleanings
It’s important that we continue to schedule appointments with you so that we can make sure your veneers are looking their best, and that they stay that way. The week after the veneers are placed is the most important visit, followed by your regular dental hygiene visits, during which we can keep an eye out for potential problems.

Try Not to Grind
Many people grind their teeth, but it’s important that you let us know if you have a history of doing so. Measures can be taken to avoid damage to your new veneers over time, such as a nighttime mouth guard to protect your new smile.

Avoid Damage
Biting down on hard food is dangerous for any teeth, and even more so for veneers. Avoid using your veneers to bite down on hard materials and foods. The less stress you put on them the better.

Staining
Veneers keep their shade beautifully over the years, but they are not immune from staining. Avoid the same foods and beverages that you do for your natural teeth such as coffee, tea, wine (and smoking)!

What is involved in the procedure?
First we evaluate your teeth using various kinds of imaging and impressions to ensure that veneers are a good choice for you. Next we create a mock-up so that you can see what your teeth will look like after the procedure, before you make your final decision. If you decide to proceed the first step is to remove a thin layer of enamel from the teeth and then make an impression from which we can build the veneers. The veneers are bonded to the teeth with dental cement and hardened using a special light. That’s where the procedure ends and your new smile begins.

New to the area and my very first dental visit in Lubbock. What an amazing team and program. Kristen was my dental hygienist--experienced, professional, compassionate, patient and informative--at every step of what ended up being a couple hour session. Dr Grimes was approachable, easy to talk to, clearly an expert and made me feel welcome as a new and somewhat anxious patient. I cant recommend this practice highly enough and feel so lucky to have made Grimes Dental my first choice in Lubbock.

I am not one who likes to go to the dentist; however Grimes Dentistry made my visit so comfortable. Everyone was nice and encouraging. My dental hygienist, Dakota, helped ease my nervousness. She is not only very skilled, but she is also extremely gentle. I appreciated her knowledge, and it was obvious she cared about both my oral and overall health. She was great about educating as she provided treatment. Great Office and Staff!
