Post-Operative Instructions for Permanent Veneers

After your veneers are placed, it is important to follow these care instructions to ensure proper healing and long-term success of your new restorations. If the area was numbed, it’s important to avoid eating or drinking until the anesthesia has worn off to prevent possible injury to your lips, tongue, and cheeks. 

It’s normal to experience some sensitivity to pressure, heat, cold and sweet foods following your veneer placement; however, this should lessen over time. Your gums may be sore in the days following your procedure; you can rinse with warm salt water three times a day or take an over-the-counter pain reliever if needed. Avoid biting hard foods and objects, as this can damage or break your veneers. 

Also, consider limiting dark sodas, coffee and other foods and beverages that might cause staining. Daily home care will increase the longevity of your veneers and the health of the underlying teeth. You should resume regular brushing and flossing immediately to keep your veneers free of plaque buildup and decay. 

If you experience persistent pain or sensitivity outside of the norm, it is important to contact our office for assistance.

Just had a great dental cleaning at Lepore Dentistry. All the covid precautions in place AND it was the most gentle cleaning ever. I almost fell asleep!
