A beautiful smile is priceless, so it’s well worth your money to make it a priority. Cosmetic dentistry can help you attain your goals. Cosmetic dental work usually represents a large investment, so you’ll want to keep it looking its best for as long as possible. Whether you have porcelain veneers, crowns, or dental bonding, you’ll need to make sure they receive the best of care both at home and in the dentist’s office. Here are a few dental care tips to help you keep your new smile in top condition.

Tips for Professional Cosmetic Dental Care

  • Some maintenance procedures that work well for natural teeth or metal restorations can ruin ceramic or composite materials. If you’ve had cosmetic dental restorations and you’re seeing a new dentist, make sure to mention your existing work to the dentist and office staff.
  • Polishing devices that use a powerful spray of sodium bicarbonate can break the glaze of porcelain and composite restorations. They also roughen the surface, which can lead to easier staining. Although they’ll look great right after the appointment, the appearance of your restorations will rapidly deteriorate if these devices are used.
  • Ultrasonic scalers must be used with care when you have cosmetic dental work. If used improperly around the margins of dentist crowns, veneers, or composite bonding, they can damage the appearance and leave the restored teeth vulnerable to decay.
  • An aluminum oxide polishing agent should be used on composite bonding instead of regular pumice polish.
  • The hydrofluoric acid contained in some fluoride treatments can etch porcelain dentist crowns and veneers and break the surface glaze. Any treatments used on cosmetic dental work should contain neutral fluoride only.

Home Care Tips for Cosmetic Dental Restorations

  • Don’t consume large amounts of alcohol; this can damage both direct bonding and the luting material that holds porcelain veneers to your teeth.
  • Avoid biting hard objects or ice. If you grind your teeth at night, use a night guard.
  • Use a mouthguard when engaging in sports.
  • Maintain strict oral hygiene to protect the natural portions of your teeth. Ask your dentist to recommend a safe and effective toothpaste.
