Cavities Forming Behind Veneers

The Woodlands and Houston, TX

If you choose to invest in a beautiful smile, it is vital you maintain good oral hygiene. Cavities, which result from tooth decay, can form behind cosmetic dental procedures like veneers if dental health is neglected.

Selecting a reputable cosmetic dentist, like Dr. Scott Young at Woodlands Premier Dentistry in the Houston, Texas area is equally important, as many possible problems can be eliminated upfront with the correct placement of the veneers.  Through a general professional cleaning prior to the placement of your veneers, which involves examining you for decay that may affect your aesthetic decisions, Dr. Young will see to it that nothing interferes with your procedure.

Eliminate the Possibility of Cavities

As with the required maintenance of natural teeth, cavities forming behind veneers can be avoided by following proper oral hygiene, including:

  • Twice daily brushing
  • Daily flossing
  • Regular visits to Dr. Young
  • Limiting your sugar intake

Veneers are an effective solution to treat chipped, broken or discolored teeth, creating a uniform smile and long term dental contentment, provided they are well fitted and well maintained. If you are considering porcelain veneers to achieve your desired smile or to repair imperfect teeth, the experienced team at Woodlands Premier Dentistry can help guide your decision.
