Frequently Asked Questions about Veneers

Be it a minor procedure or a major surgery seeking any type of treatment is always worrisome – You stress about what you will go through during the treatment and what possible outcomes will come out of it. Our mind’s imaginative abilities come into play and we think about a 100 different scenarios that are often far from reality.
The point here is that visiting any type of doctor and having any sort of treatment done can be incredibly stressful and for some it can prove to be nerve wrecking. So in order to help calm those nerves and enable patients to get their act together, patients should be well-aware of the procedure at hand and the possible outcomes that it may have.
Some of the frequently asked questions about the placements of veneers include:

Will I have to go under anaesthesia?

This highly depends on the patient. The procedure to place the veneers is a simple one and patients usually do not require the use of local anaesthesia. But if patients are incredibly anxious and nervous then it might be used to help calm them down

Will the Colour of the Veneers match the other Teeth?

Ideally, you should ask your cosmetic dentist about this. The shade of the veneers is usually picked to blend in with the rest of the teeth. But patients can also choose a slightly whiter shade and then have the rest of their teeth bleached to match the veneers. This way all their teeth will appear straight and brighter.

How long will the Veneers last?

Porcelain veneers have the potential to last for several years if they are cared for properly. Patients can wear the same veneer for a good 15-20 years. So in the long run they really are worth the investment.

Do I have a greater chance of having cavities Post Treatment?

Veneers in Dubai have in no way shown to either promote or discourage the development of cavities. If patients practice good dental habits then they will not have cavities – It’s the same case as with their natural teeth.

Do I have to take Special Care of my Teeth Post Treatment?

Veneer placements do not require special care but to prolong their life patients are encouraged to take good care of their teeth. That means brushing and flossing regularly and not missing any dental appointment. You shouldn’t be afraid to brush your teeth thoroughly. The veneers are attached to the surface of your teeth very strongly and the chances of them chipping off are very less.

I like to clench my Teeth. Will this affect the veneers?

Patients who like to grind their teeth should inform their cosmetic dentist about this. Grinding can cause excessive pressure to be applied on the veneers and can damage them. To prevent this, your dentist will create a ‘bite guard’ for you to wear while you sleep. This will serve to minimize your stress and also protect your teeth.
If you have any added concerns or questions about this procedure then consult your dentist in Dubai so that you are mentally prepared and relaxed when the treatment starts.
