Porcelain Veneers Aftercare
Congratulations on completing your Porcelain Veneer Smile Makeover. On behalf of everyone at Dental & Skin Clinic, we want to take a moment to celebrate this moment with you. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for entrusting us with your smile and we hope we managed to meet and maybe even exceed your expectations. Nothing brings us more joy than to see our clients happy.
To make sure your veneers maintain their health and long-term stability, we advise you to stick to these simple habits:
Maintain excellent oral hygiene
- Brush your teeth using an electric toothbrush, morning and night time.
- We prefer a ‘sensitive’ toothpaste such as Sensodyne or the Colgate Sensitive range as we find these types of toothpastes are the most gentle and least abrasive.
- Use piksters to clean in between the veneers to keep the gums healthy. Use it once at night before bed after brushing your teeth.
Wear your Aftercare Guard every night
- It will take about 4 weeks to get used to so please persist through. At the start, you will wake up in the middle of the night and take it out because you’re not used to wearing it.
- Keep the Aftercare Guard away from any pets (as they tend to want to chew them). On very hot days, keep the Aftercare Guard in the fridge.
- To clean the Aftercare Guard, we recommend brushing it with soap and water. You can also soak it in Denture Cleaner for 20 minutes once or twice per week. We don’t recommend cleaning it with toothpaste as this will leave an unsightly residue.
Avoid very hard or sticky foods over the veneers
- For example, cut carrots into sticks rather than biting into a whole piece of carrot. Avoid eating toffee.
Don’t use your teeth as tools
- For example, don’t chew your fingernails or use your teeth to open bottles.
