Anything new takes time for adjustment; your new veneers will take a little time to get used to. This is because they will be a little thicker, longer and wider than your natural teeth by only 0.5 mm. When veneers are first worn, the experience might give you a slight unnoticeable lisp that should go away after a few days, this is not permanent and even permanent veneers cause a lisp when first worn.
- How to care for veneers:
- The veneers should be cleaned when you take them out for the night; Bright smiles also advise cleaning your veneers after eating with them using tap water.
Electric and hard toothbrushes can damage and scratch your veneers, use only a soft bristle toothbrush or denture brush to gently clean and remove any food particles.
Do not use ordinary toothpaste as this is abrasive and may scratch the surface of the veneers. We recommend you stand your veneers in denture sterilizer solution, do this once or twice each week or more often if needed.
If using paste or brushes or other cleaning products, please be sure to use only products specially designed for use with removable dental appliances.
- How can I care for my natural teeth under the veneers?
Remove your clip on veneers before cleaning your natural teeth. It is important that you should continue to care for and clean your natural teeth and see a dentist for regular check-ups.
- Can clip on veneers break?
Please bear in mind that dental clip on veneers cannot last forever. Like dentures, with use veneers will wear and eventually break and need to be replaced. They are also susceptible to accidental damage for example if you rest something heavy on them. We advise keeping your veneers out of direct sunlight when not wearing them. Ultra-violet sunlight or excessive heat could cause damage. When not wearing the veneers, please store them in the case provided. This will help keep them out of sunlight and will reduce the risk of accidental breakage.
