Composite Veneers Miami

If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth, it can take a considerable toll on your overall confidence. Everyone dreams of a smile they don’t need to hide and can feel proud showing off at any moment. Unfortunately, very few individuals enter the world with a perfect set of teeth. However, thanks to amazing advances in technology and dental techniques, you can finally achieve the smile you have always wanted with the help of Composite Veneers Miami! To learn more about this fantastic option and how you should properly care for them, read on for some expert advice from our team at the offices of Dr. Andres de Cardenas.

Composite Veneers Miami are used to improve the appearance of your smile by utilizing a thin layer of a casing that attaches to the teeth that are affected. In addition to serving as an aesthetic enhancer, veneers also protect the teeth from further damage while restoring the functionality of teeth that have already been damaged. Our team has offered this service at our facilities for quite some time. However, very few individuals remain aware of how they should care for their veneers once the service is complete.

How to Care for Composite Veneers

To help make your veneers last for as long as possible, you should closely adhere to the following tips:

  1. Keep them clean: Once the veneers become a permanent part of teeth, you should treat them just as you always have. Some individuals are under the impression that veneers change the way that you care and clean for your teeth, but that could not be further from the truth. Experts urge you to brush and floss just as long and as frequently as you did before the procedure to ensure that you are cleaning your teeth correctly. Poor hygiene will still lead to cavities and gum disease and may eventually cause your veneers to detach or chip off.
  2. Avoid teeth-staining foods and beverages: This may be a given, but foods and drinks that tend to stain the teeth are still just as bad, if not worse, once you have veneers applied to your teeth. While you do not entirely have to rule out things like coffee, wine, berries, and carbonated drinks from your diet completely, you should try to limit your consumption. Thoroughly clean any traces off after enjoying them to avoid any possible, long-term staining.
  3. Find the right toothpaste: Many top toothpaste brands out there contain ingredients that are far too abrasive for the teeth. You should avoid anything that contains sodium bicarbonate, hydrogen peroxide, and baking soda. These ingredients will not only harm your natural teeth but also eat away at the surface of your veneers. If you are not careful, your toothpaste may cause the veneers to lose their sheen and color. Professionals recommend finding a toothpaste that is free from those harmful ingredients. These typically come in a gel form rather than paste.
