How Long Do Veneers Tend To Last

By Guest

There is no exact time you can expect your veneers to last, however they will last for many years. They can in fact last a person for a lifetime, in order to achieve this they will need to be looked after.

You should brush and floss your veneered teeth just as you would with any tooth. You should brush your teeth for approximately 2 minutes and twice a day. Your Oxford dentistry will have special toothbrushes you can use.

By brushing regularly it will minimize the chance of decay forming on parts of the tooth that are not covered by the veneers. Plaque can also spoil the appearance of your veneers by discolouring the bonded cement. Speak to your Oxford dentist about what toothpaste is best to use for removing plaque.

Porcelain veneers are not designed to be as strong as a normal tooth; they do not withstand heavy forces. Avoid chewing on bottles, ice, your nails and other hard items are advised. If you participate in physical sports such as Rugby a mouth guard is high recommended.

Bruxism is the term given by Oxford dentists for the action of grinding your teeth together. If you do grind your teeth it can in fact chip or break porcelain veneers. You should avoid bruxing in the daytime; if you do it at night when you can’t prevent it your Cosmetic Dentistry Oxford can provide a plastic night guard for you to wear.

The bonding substance that attaches a porcelain veneer to the tooth can stain, however they are one of the best cosmetic dentistry Oxford treatments for not staining. Teeth whitening Oxford treatments stain easier than veneers. Even though veneers do not stain easily they still can, this can spoil the overall appearance of the veneer which you of course do not want. Therefore you should avoid drinking coffee, coke, tea and red wine. If you do drink these, minimize them to once or twice a day. Smoking is also extremely bad for staining teeth, cutting down on cigarettes will not only benefit your veneers but also be good for your health. An Oxford Dentist will be able to refer you to a doctor for more information on giving up cigarettes.
