Cosmetic dentistry procedures require regular oral hygiene care and may require maintenance over time. Teeth whitening must be repeated on occasion in order to maintain brightness. Porcelain veneers may chip or break off and need replacement. Permanent composite bonding may stain and require enhancement or replacement. Dental crowns typically require replacement after 10 to 15 years. Gummy smile improvements may also require enhancement over time.
With proper oral hygiene habits, and regular dental visits your smile will look great and your crowns, veneers and other dental restorations will last for many years. A few simple guidelines will help maintain your dental restorations for years to come.
Highly abrasive toothpastes and improper brushing habits can scratch the surface of dental restorations. Non-abrasive flouride toothpastes formulated specifically for dental restorations such as Rembrant, are recommended.
Flossing is one of the most important factors to proper care and extending the life of your dental restorations. The removal of plaque and food particles helps prevent tooth decay and gum health which is especially important to maintaining veneers.
Use alcohol free mouthwashes. Mouthwashes containing alcohol have been shown to have a negative effect on composite fillings and can degrade the bond between crowns and veneers.
Food and Drinks to Limit or Avoid
To prevent cavities limit or avoid high in sugar and limit between meal snacks as well as alcoholic beverages. Coffe, soda, tea, etc. to avoid staining your smile.
Get fitted with a dental night guard to prevent damage to your teeth and restorations and wear it. Also avoid chewing hard objects such as pens, hard candy, etc.
