What you need to know about Veneers in Kathu

A non-invasive dental restoration procedure, previously popular among those with damaged or discolored teeth. Nowadays, the procedure is seen as the ideal method of achieving the ‘perfect smile’ and veneers can be used to hide uneven, misaligned or simply imperfect teeth. The veneers are cemented over the existing teeth and fixed into place – there are two types of veneer; Porcelain and Composite. Porcelain veneers are more expensive and appear more natural, being made in a laboratory so require multiple visits. There is often the need to alter the existing teeth, removing some of the mass. Whereas Composite veneers appear less natural, being stuck directly onto the unaltered existing teeth.

Veneers, Before and After

The Procedure

Veneers are used primarily for aesthetics. This type of treatment procedure is perfect for people who have gaps in their teeth, stains, as well as people who may have chipped a tooth. Veneers are custom-made shells designed to fit the shape of your teeth and to be attached to your front teeth to improve the size, shape, color, and length.

Two main types of veneers are:

  1. Composite Veneer - this type can be created by your dentist on the same day and directly applied to your teeth. You will only need a single appointment to complete the procedure. 
  2. Porcelain Veneer - this type is manufactured in a laboratory. Opting for a porcelain veneer will require you to have two appointments. First, is to prepare your teeth (enamel removal) and mold a model of your teeth to be created in the lab. The second is to finally cement your veneers onto your teeth.

The most commonly used type of Veneer is the Porcelain Veneer. In terms of anesthetics, local anesthesia is not usually required while undergoing the whole procedure. However, depending on how you handle pain and discomfort, you may request to receive local anesthesia or sedation.

Aside from giving you a pleasing smile, veneers are resistant to staining and offer the best fix to broken or damaged teeth.

Length of Stay in Kathu

This type of procedure is an outpatient treatment, meaning you may be able to go home after undergoing the procedure. However, you will be required to do a follow-up check-up with your dentist to assess the placement of your veneers and in most cases, the procedure has to be carried out over 2 separate occasions, just a day or two apart. Since this is a non-invasive treatment, stitches are not required, but you will be required to stay in Kathu for at least a few days.

Aftercare

Once your dental veneers have been placed and you have completed the whole procedure, you should commit yourself to good oral hygiene, regular visits to your dentist and a general healthy lifestyle. Dental Veneers can last beyond 10 years now, however, just like your natural teeth, veneers are also still susceptible to damage. This is why aftercare is very important to help with the longevity of your new teeth.

Recovery Time

There is actually no recovery time after the placement of your veneers. You can also return back to your daily routines including exercise immediately after your trip. As for the enamel removal, you may experience some mild discomfort for about a week. It is best that you avoid very hot or cold foods, including hard, chewy or crunchy food. When your sensitivity wears off, you can return to your normal dietary habits.

Success Rate

Over the past years, many studies have reported that over 91% of people who have had dental veneers experienced highly positive results. However, potential risks and side effects after undergoing this procedure are a possibility. Just like any other dental restoration, dental veneers can have some side-effects, for example:

  • Tooth sensitivity - since this procedure will require the removal of some enamel, your teeth will become slightly sensitive, following the placement of your veneers.
  • Response from gum tissues - your gum tissue might take some time to adjust to your newly placed veneers. Expect to have some minor inflammation and/or discomfort in your gums.
  • Risk of trauma - once your teeth’s enamel is removed, it will become more sensitive, thus it will be even possible for the pulp within your teeth to die.
  • Possible Issues with placement - it's possible for your teeth to have issues with decay or chipping along the outer portion of your veneers. Gum irritation may also be possible. Other problems may include rough-edged veneers and overhanging veneers.
  • Overall Discomfort - experiencing some discomfort after the procedure is to be expected. If you are particularly sensitive, it is advisable that you take an over the counter medication to help you relax and treat your pain. 

Alternatives to Veneers

You should be aware that this type of treatment is not for everyone. If you are not a good candidate to undergo the procedure, there are still possible alternatives that will be suited for you. These alternatives may include:

  1. Orthodontics - if you have severely crooked teeth or malocclusion, dental veneers are not for you. You may want to consider a more comprehensive orthodontic procedure to treat your case.
  2. Dental crowns - these are quite similar to dental veneers. These are also custom-made to match the shape of your teeth. However, unlike veneers, a crown extends all the way around your tooth, meaning your dentist will remove a large portion of your dental structure. These crowns are perfect for patients who have considerable damage that affects the strength and structure of their teeth.
  3. Bonding - often called composite veneers. This is typically for patients with an insufficient amount of tooth enamel.
