You Now Have New Veneers, What Next?

You’ve taken the leap and finally invested in a dazzling new smile with veneers from Body Expert in Turkey.


You’ve taken the leap and finally invested in a dazzling new smile with veneers from Body Expert in Turkey. They are pearly white, strong, and straight, but there is far more you need to do to keep them that way. There are a few aftercare procedures to make sure your veneers continue to look their best for decades to come.

Here is how you get used to them and care for them.

Settling In: The First Few Days

Your new veneers may feel weird for the first few days. You will experience a minor sensation as your tongue adjusts to the new curves. All of this is typical. Here are some tips for surviving this initial phase:

  • Sensitivity: Sensitivity will occur whenever you eat anything too cold or hot. To ease this, over-the-counter pain relievers can help manage any discomfort.
  • Diet: Veneers are just like any other dental procedure. Stick to soft foods for the first 24-48 hours. Gradually reintroduce more complex foods, but be mindful of biting into anything callous.
  • Brushing and Flossing: It might seem like a good idea to skip brushing your teeth, but it is not with veneers. Maintain your regular brushing and flossing routine. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and avoid abrasive toothpaste. Flossing gently around the veneers is crucial to remove any trapped food particles.

Long-Term Care: Brushing Up on Habits

Veneers are incredibly durable, but proper care is essential for their longevity. You would love to have them 10-20-30 years later, so here are some habits to adopt:

  • Brushing and Flossing: Brushing twice a day and flossing daily is non-negotiable. Consider using a fluoride toothpaste to strengthen the underlying tooth enamel.
  • Staining: While veneers are stain-resistant compared to natural teeth, certain foods and beverages can still leave their mark. You should moderately enjoy coffee, tea, red wine, and dark berries. Rinse your mouth with water after consuming these to minimize staining.
  • Bad Habits: Avoid chewing on complex objects like ice, fingernails, or pens. These can chip or crack your veneers.
  • Regular Dental Checkups: Schedule regular dental checkups and cleanings with your dentist. This allows them to monitor the health of your veneers and underlying teeth, addressing any potential issues early on.

Maintaining the Sparkle: Professional Cleanings and Touch-Ups

Veneers are sparking when you get them, but they can lose their luster if you do not take good care of them. While daily care is essential, professional cleanings are equally important. During dental checkups, your dentist will remove any built-up plaque or tartar that brushing alone might miss. The polishing will restore the veneer’s shine and smoothness.

The second thing dentists will do is check for signs of wear, chipping, or staining. If necessary, they can discuss options for repair or replacement.

Veneers and You:

If you take good care of your veneers, they should last a decade or longer. You can have a dazzling, self-assured smile for years if you adhere to our aftercare recommendations and practice good oral hygiene.

Remember that having veneers is an investment; with proper care, they will continue giving you confidence and pride. Therefore, show off that smile; you deserve it!
