Dental professionals frequently advise maintaining healthy oral hygiene practices, such as flossing once a day and brushing twice a day. The maintenance of dental veneers is much less. To maintain the condition of your veneers, there are a few things you should avoid. Avoiding biting or chewing on tough meals is one of the things you need to stop. 

Dental veneers are a permanent and durable restorative option. You should know that veneers are almost like real teeth and are vulnerable to chipping and cracking. There is no need to worry about it because your dentist can quickly fix your broken veneer.

How to Prevent Damage to the Veneers? 

Your veneers are strong and made to last over the years. Nevertheless, in certain situations, they could break or fracture. The best way to prevent a cracked or fractured veneer on your restorations is to use common sense and keep a close check on them. Steer clear of biting difficult foods with your veneers whenever you can. Wearing a mouthguard while you sleep can help lower the chance of veneer damage if you grind your teeth while you sleep. To properly care for your veneers and natural teeth, brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss once. 

While problems with veneers are extremely uncommon, they can break occasionally. In this case, there are two possible outcomes, both of which call for dental care. You cannot keep assuming that it will self-heal or you will be able to fix it at home. The easiest to repair is a single veneer chipping off. 

Your dentist might then fix the veneers to your teeth if this occurs. But occasionally, situations get more difficult, such as when the veneer cracks and some portions remain attached to the tooth while others fall off. In this situation, your dentist has to choose between veneer replacement and repair. They will make this decision according to your situation. 

What Happens During Veneer Repair? 

The situation where veneers just peel away from the underlying material without breaking is known as debonding. The good news is that your dentist can usually replace your veneers without having to make a new veneer. Your dentist can frequently use dental shaping to smooth out small chips in the porcelain veneer. However, it cannot be repaired if the outside is broken or cracked in any manner. A dental laboratory will have to replace it for you.
