Thanks to modern dental technology and the skills of your dentist you finally have that smile that you’ve wanted for so long. Now you’ll want to do everything possible to keep it.
Home dental care includes brushing and flossing every day, eating a well balanced diet and getting a sufficient amount of fluoride. There are many fluoridated toothpastes and mouth washes on the market today, check the label for content. Ask your dentist if you are a candidate for supplemental fluoride treatments.
If you have just had a dental veneer placed on a front tooth, let the back molars do the major part of the chewing – after all, it’s what they’re made for. Cut your steak into smaller pieces and slice your apple instead of biting into it.
Don’t fail to keep regular professional appointments, your dentist will want to monitor any changes in your cosmetic improvement. When you have your teeth cleaned make the hygienist aware of your veneer so that she will know to use a non abrasive polish.
There is no replacement for tooth enamel that has been lost over time or to acid erosion. Prevent damage by brushing properly – ask your hygienist for tips – and avoiding citrus juices and acidic carbonated drinks.
There are certain care instructions that may apply to any specific procedure but generally speaking following a regimen of conventional oral hygiene will help to maintain the new and improved look of your makeover.
