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 either the Hertfordshire or the London 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

I live in London so it was no problem visiting them at Harley Street, I was a bit nervous when I walked in but it all went fine and I now have no more gaps in my teeth, many thanks

My dental plan included quite intrusive treatment, all of which was carried out with concern for my comfort. Time was taken to insure that I was included in every decision to be made.
Everyone was very friendly and made me feel 'at home'. Thanks to the dentists at this amazing practice!!

Whiter brighter teeth
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.
