In some cases, minor adjustments may be needed after the veneers are placed to ensure proper fit and alignment.
Eating cold foods with Invisalign aligners is generally acceptable, but be sure to rinse your aligners thoroughly after consuming them.
You can gradually resume eating your favorite foods as your dental implant heals and integrates with the jawbone. Initially, stick to soft and non-chewy foods and gradually transition to a regular diet.
Teeth might be splinted to stabilize them after a trauma, or due to mobility from periodontal disease.
You can use a water flosser with porcelain veneers, but remove your aligners for effective cleaning between your teeth.
Aligner chewies can be used to help seat aligners correctly and ensure a snug fit. Your orthodontist may provide them as part of your treatment.
