Lumineers® in Manhattan, NY are a great option if you are looking to brighten your smile. They are a specialized super-thin type of veneer used to cover damaged or cracked teeth, reducing sensitivity and restoring stability. Your cosmetic dentists at Smile in the City have a few tips for taking care of your Lumineers® after your visit.
You will likely have follow-up appointments with your cosmetic dentist after your teeth are shaped and the Lumineers® are placed. It is imperative that you keep your appointments so your cosmetic dentist can monitor the health of the veneers and make sure there are no issues. Even if your teeth seem to be doing fine, be sure to have a checkup with your cosmetic dentist at least twice a year.
Your teeth might look whiter and brighter, but it is still possible for them to dull if you do not take the proper precautions. You should avoid any foods or drinks that have a high probability of staining your Lumineers. Anything that contains dye could fall into this category, including red wine, coffee, tomatoes, sodas, and dark fruits.
If you are not already in the habit of brushing and flossing your teeth daily, you need to start getting into this routine right away. This is the best way to keep your teeth looking whiter.
Although your Lumineers® might feel unbreakable, biting your nails is one way you could actually damage them. This also goes for ice, hard foods, such as chewy meats, nuts, hard bread, and crunchy fruits and vegetables.
