Home » Cosmetic Dentistry » 11 things you need to know when considering dental veneers » What is the maintenance that is required?
The life of any dental work is dependant on controling three aspects: decay, gum disease and bit issues. Decay is controlled by diet, gum disease by oral hygiene and bite issues need to be caught in advance.
Thus the maintenance of any cosmetic dentistry requires the brushing your teeth twice a day, the use of floss once a day and the care to minimise the frequency of sugar consumption to mealtimes and avoid snacking.
We recommend that you have regular hygiene treatment at least every 6 month in the Hertfordshire clinic. For those patients who have had gum disease prior to starting the treatment, hygiene treatment is recommended every 3 months.
We also recommend at minimum an annual examination to check the veneers and reassess your bite. Your bite may change with time due to movement of teeth, and this may create an issue with the bite. We also want to ensure that your diet is correct and look for any signs of early decay.
Correct maintenance and aftercare will reduce any side-effects and any complications.
We also recommend the use of mouth guards, if you have had dental veneer treatment.
We recommend the use of permanent lifelong retainers bonded to the inside surface of the teeth.For more Information on treatments, please click here

Dr Sam and his wonderful team are brilliant. They have created the most incredible smile for me and completely changed my life. It sounds extreme, but I can't describe how unhappy I felt with my smile. I hid my mouth when I talked or laughed, I avoided social situations and family photos. Being able to smile with out worrying what people think is the most amazing feeling. I have already seen such a change in the way I work and how I interact with clients. My self confidence has grown and I genuinely feel like a new person. If you feel anything lile how I felt go and book a consultation. Don't think about it any longer. You will not regret it. Dr Sam is gentle, knowledgeable and all round good human. I can't thank him and his team or nurses enough.

Veneers are thin, ceramic shells designed to give you a natural smile. Ultrathin, Durathin and Lumineers are just a few of the brands we provide. Normally achieved in two appointments.
Composite / Immediate Veneers
Composite veneers cost less than other veneers and require little or no tooth preparation at all. Have your veneers fitted in as little as one appointment.
