Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Veneers
Listed below are some of the most common problems that dental veneers can fix:
- Stained or discoloured teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Worn-down teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
Generally, traditional veneers are classified into two types:
- Porcelain Veneers:
Porcelain veneers are frequently the choice for patients looking to make minor changes to their teeth, such as changing the form, size, or colour of their teeth. Several advantages of porcelain veneers are that they are thinner than other veneers, give a natural-looking smile, last up to 15 years with proper care, and in most cases, natural teeth are not cut down.
While porcelain veneers are incredibly durable and look natural, they are also more expensive and require a specialized polishing paste. Additionally, if they break, they cannot be repaired and must be replaced.
- Composite Resin Veneers: Composite veneers are preferred by some patients due to their affordability. Additionally, they may typically be implanted in one procedure, minimizing the need for many dental appointments. Several other advantages of this sort of veneer are that, in comparison to other types of veneers, they require less tooth preparation. Typically, the cost is half that of porcelain veneers. In addition, composite veneers of superior quality can appear natural.
While composite veneers are less expensive, they are also more prone to staining, shattering, or chipping. Unlike porcelain veneers, composite veneers have a 5-year lifetime.
It usually takes one to two weeks to create your mould and for the dental laboratory to return your veneers. After receiving your veneers, you can schedule an appointment to have them put in. During this session, we will evaluate the fit, shape, and colour of the veneers to ensure they are a perfect fit for you. Then, our dentist will thoroughly clean your teeth. This is important because it keeps bacteria from building up beneath the veneer and causing deterioration.
Following that, we will be using the grinding tool to create a rougher texture on each tooth in preparation for the veneer. This helps the veneer adhere to the tooth. Our experienced dentist will then use dental cement to secure the veneer to the tooth. We will use UV light to fix this cement quickly, and when you leave the office, your new smile will be ready to go!
From consultation to veneer placement, the complete process usually takes one to two visits, with each appointment lasting about an hour.
While there is always a risk associated with any dental procedure, it is essential to understand that these possibilities are minimal and completely manageable. Common problems include:
The procedure for placing dental veneers may cause some discomfort. There will be little to no discomfort during or after the procedure. However, if you are very sensitive, take an over-the-counter medication to alleviate your pain.
Sensitivity of the teeth:
Tooth sensitivity is not unusual during the first three weeks following veneer implantation. There may be a severe problem if the increased sensitivity persists for three to six months following veneer insertion. For instance, your tooth’s nerve may have been irreparably irritated during treatment. It would require quick attention from your dentist if an infection-causing bacteria or ulcerative lesion were discovered.
Reactions of the gum tissue:
It will take time for the new veneers to be wholly smoothed down and aligned with the adjacent teeth. It is relatively uncommon for slight swelling or irritation of the gums to occur following installation. The dentist may choose to schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure that everything has healed entirely as predicted.
While veneers are an excellent approach to improving your teeth’s appearance, some risk is associated with this operation. Dentin may be injured during enamel removal, resulting in tooth discomfort or bruxism. A poorly fitted veneer might result in alignment problems, resulting in jaw pain as well.
Veneer replacement in the future:
Your veneers are more likely to fail if you have tooth enamel erosion or other untreated dental problems. It is essential to cure any underlying dental issues before inserting new ones, which could result in the veneer failing. Alternative restorations, such as crowns and aesthetic bonding treatments, are frequently recommended to replace an old or failing one.
In comparison to other dental operations, veneers have a rapid recovery time. You may eat and chew normally once the cement is put on your teeth and the anesthetics wear off but minimize chewing on your cheeks or tongue to avoid bruising.
Brushing and flossing are essential components of good dental hygiene that helps veneers last longer. Your dentist may recommend that you limit food and beverages that can stain your veneers, such as coffee, tea, and more. Furthermore, the following tips should be kept in mind after the procedure:
- Avoid biting on complex objects such as your fingernails, pens, or even ice.
- Avoid opening packages with your teeth.
- If possible, attempt to limit the amount of time you spend chewing with your front teeth. Rather than that, consume the more complex items with your molars or back teeth, or slice them up if possible.
- Wear a retainer or splint to safeguard your veneers at night if you frequently clench or grind your teeth.
- When participating in contact sports, use a mouthguard to prevent teeth from being damaged or knocked out during the game.
