Best Ways To Maintain Composite Veneers is :
Both composite bonding and porcelain veneers have similar maintenance involved. Firstly, you should always practice proper oral health by brushing twice daily with a dentist-approved toothpaste, flossing, and using mouthwash. You should also make sure to see your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings.
Secondly to maintain composite veneers, try not to chew on anything hard, such as ice or boiled sweets. This can actually damage the veneers and cause them to crack in the very same way that it can damage your real teeth. Try to avoid using your teeth as tools for this reason, too.
Composite Veneers can stain just like your natural teeth can, so you may want to limit or avoid dark-coloured food and drink wherever possible to keep them looking sparkling clean. We also advise against smoking.
Finally, address any ongoing issues that you may have that could damage the composite veneers, such as bruxism (teeth grinding). Bruxism can wear away the veneers over time and also wear away the enamel on your natural teeth. At Eternal Smiles, we have a useful guide for you to prevent further grinding of your teeth and breaking of veneers.
We do replace any veneers you may currently have that you are not happy with.
When it comes to designing the veneers we will do an accurate colour match and wax-ups to decide the perfect shape of your veneers so that a natural looking smile is created. We can change their colour, shape, size or length.
Why Would I Want To Have Veneers?
Composite veneers are a specific type of dental work that does not hurt and takes less than a day to apply.
Composite Veneers Vs Porcelain Veneres
However, we would advise against getting composite veneers if you are a heavy smoker, as this can prematurely stain the composite and result in a patchy appearance on the teeth. It may also be ill-advised to get composites if you have a habit of nail biting. The habit can be quite hard to break and will increase the risk of your veneers chipping or cracking.
Porcelain veneers are great for those that would like a more permanent solution, as they last longer and are generally more durable and stain-resistant. Porcelain can also look more natural than composite. They are also easier than to Maintain Composite Veneers. As porcelain is usually easier on the gumline, we would recommend older patients to opt for this treatment.
On the other hand, porcelain veneers are not a good option for you if you aren’t sure you want to fully commit to them. As we mentioned, they cannot be removed and so they are more of a life-long investment. The initial investment is also a downside of the treatment, as having several teeth done could set you back thousands of pounds.
We make them so it is easy for you to maintain composite veneers.
