Dental Veneers – post-op Instructions
Veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain or composite resin material. These are bonded on the front of the teeth. Dental veneers is a minimal invasive procedure for improving the appearance of the front teeth. Veneers are placed to mask discolourations, to brighten the teeth and to improve a smile.
After veneers procedure, for one to two week will be a period of adjustment. You will be get used to your new teeth in this period. During this period beside regular oral hygiene care the most important thing to keep in mind is your new bite. Your brain will take some time to adopt the changed position of the teeth hence the altered bite. In some case, if you feel abnormal bite then call our office for 15 minutes adjustment appointment with your cosmetic dentist. If you work in Canberra then dentist may be able to see you after your work at end of the day.
Sometime you may have sore gum and it is normal to have hot and cold sensitivity. Three times a day rinse with salted warm water will be helpful. You may need mild medication please call our Canberra based dental surgery at 6297 1303.
Ongoing regular plaque removal is critical for the long term success of any dental work. Regular active maintenance hygiene appointments are critically important. In the active maintenance appointment any chipped, tooth, crack or damage to your natural tooth can be detected in early stages and appropriate action can be performed before any expensive dental treatment. For any question please call our canberra based dental surgery and request a call back from your cosmetic dentist.
