Having a solid and regular mouth care routine is essential. Using a soft bristled brush and non-abrasive toothpaste will maintain the quality of your new smile without eroding its components faster than necessary. Frequent visits to your dental professional will keep your oral health on track and prevent possible problems before they arise.
Taking care to cut up your food and thoroughly chewing what you eat seems obvious, but when you’re no longer dealing with your natural teeth, you have to be aware of how you chew and bite into things. Though the components to your new smile are secure, taking extra care by not chomping into the hardest apple you can find or allowing chunks of debris to become lodged in your mouth is essential to the long term quality of your veneers, implants, and dentures.
Functionality isn’t the only concern for your new smile. Appearance can also be a key factor in your choice to invest the time and money into your mouth. Sugary foods and beverages can contribute to the degradation of your new smile. Stain causing foods can also taint the overall color of your veneers, implants, and dentures. Keep these elements to a minimum.
