Caring for Dental Work

Restorative dental work helps repair or replace missing and damaged teeth. Crowns, bridges, veneers, and dental implants are some of the methods your dentist or prosthodontist can choose to help restore tooth function and improve the look of your teeth.

Just like natural teeth, replacement or restored teeth require good oral health care. Dental work such as bridges and crowns can be challenging to keep clean. And poor dental implant after-care can lead to complications such as peri-implant disease.

Waterpik® oral health care products are clinically proven to remove plaque. They can help you access and clean stubborn plaque around implants, crowns, bridges, veneers, and other areas that are especially susceptible to plaque accumulation.

Crowns / Bridges / Veneers

Crowns help restore function to a damaged tooth, while bridges attach to crowns to fill the space of missing teeth. A veneer covers the front of a tooth to cover stained or poorly shaped teeth.


Dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone where teeth are missing. They can replace the roots of missing teeth and also support single crowns, bridges, and dentures.
