Post Op Directions for Veneers

When you receive veneers, you are making an investment in your mouth.  Please take the following steps to ensure that your veneers will last you for years to come.

  • It is possible to get a cavity under your veneer.  Plaque and bacteria at the gumline can lead to decay that can cause your veneer to fail.
  • An electric toothbrush and water flosser is recommended for all patients who have veneers, these can be purchased in our office. 
  • We may ask you to get additional fluoride treatments at your 6 month cleaning appointments and a prescription strength fluoride toothpaste. 
  • You should visit our office at least twice a year for professional dental cleanings or more often if directed.
  • At least once per year x-rays will be taken to check veneers thoroughly
  • In order to keep your natural teeth the same color as your new veneers, periodic whitening is recommended.
  • An occlusal guard is recommended after veneers to prevent additional pressure to your veneers that may cause chipping and breaking
