Removable veneers are the ideal solution for turning your imperfect teeth into a perfect smile. They remove the need for costly medical procedures and are easily clipped in without a dentist or dental prescription. (However please note you should continue to see your dentist regularly and follow his or her advice about dental treatment).
At Fab Smile Veneers, you can choose from a range of instant clip-in veneers to complete your smile and help you feel more confident. You do need to look after your veneers, however, to ensure that your smile is sparkling for years to come. As a general rule, you should clean your veneers at least once every day and after each meal if you use them for eating, to keep them bright and aesthetically pleasing. Here we look at how to best clean your veneers.
Caring for your removable veneers
A simple tip for keeping your removable veneers clear of discolouration is to clean them every day. Typically, you should wash your veneers each and every time you both insert them into and remove them from your mouth. This simple routine will ensure that your veneers retain their sparkle. It’s especially important to clean them with a soft brush at night after removal.
Clean them the right way
Veneers are not like normal teeth. Don’t use standard toothpaste or mouthwash to clean them. Instead, opt for a solution of mild soap and water and gently brush them with a soft toothbrush or veneer brush. This will ensure that your veneers remain bright and shiny. You can also use special non-abrasive orthodontic tooth paste which we sell through our website. If you find that your veneers have developed an odour, you can soak them for an hour in a disinfectent cleaning solution- we also sell this through our website. This should help remove the odour and retain a sparkling look. Never use a hard brush or sharp object to clean your veneers. Do not use a blow dryer or other direct heat source to dry them. Instead, allow your veneers to air dry or use a soft cloth to wipe off any moisture. Washing your veneers regularly like this will ensure they do not become discoloured.
Did you know we also sell special soft-bristle tooth brushes designed and suitable for cleaning dental and similar appliances such as clip-in veneers.
Using your veneers
Storing your veneers in a safety case overnight and out of bright sunlight during the daywill ensure that they retain their colour and help protect them form accidental damage. To avoid damaging your Ideal veneers, you may wish to try to avoid eating with them applied to your mouth as they will then last longer, for our Elites if you use them for eating, please avoid hard / brittle foods. Although soft foods like yoghurt and pudding can be consumed, you may find it better to get into the habit of removing your veneers before any meal, especially if you are using our Ideal veneers. This is because they are designed to be cosmetic enhancements for your teeth and not as replacements. Eating hard solids with our Ideal veneers, risks cracking or fracturing them, delimiting their life span and discolouring them. Thhere is always a chance the same thing could happen with our Elite veneers although they are made from a tougher material, should stand up to more use and we also warrant them for not less than 6 months against accidental breaks.
