5 Things That Can Go Wrong With Veneers If You Don’t Have the Right Dentist
Dental veneers are a great choice for many patients who want a fix for several cosmetic dental issues. If you are looking for the right dentist to perform this procedure, you should know that veneer preparation and application are extremely technically challenging. Potentially life-changing, veneers have to be done by the right dentist if you’re going to get the natural, artistic, enduring look you want. You should be aware that not every dentist has the training or experience to place veneers successfully. To help our patients, we have prepared this guide to possible veneer problems and what you can do to avoid them.
1. Your Mouth May Not Be Healthy Enough for Dental Veneers
Any good dentist is going to conduct a thorough exam, which often includes x-rays, before applying the veneer. This examination is crucial to check for ongoing disease or infection. Why? Because applying veneers to teeth that are decayed or suffering from gum infections is never a good idea. The presence of veneers can make treating these problems much more difficult.
If you do have tooth decay or gum disease, this does not mean you cannot receive veneers. You will just need to have these problems treated first by Dr. Haider Al Fayadh. Once your mouth is healthy, he will likely be able to offer you veneers.
2. Dental Veneers Are Not Invulnerable
Veneers are supposed to be permanent, right? Yes, in the sense that they are not removable by the patient. While dental veneer should normally endure for decades, you can shorten the lifespan of your veneers with some bad habits. Bruxism or tooth grinding and clenching is one of the worst habits for veneer durability. If you grind your teeth, either consciously or during sleep, you can easily take years off the life of your veneers.
Dr. Haider Al Fayadh never applies veneers without first taking a dental and medical history from his patients and checking for signs of bruxism. He wants you to get the maximum lifespan out of your veneers, and he can help with tooth grinding using measures like a protective nightguard.
3. You May Suffer Discomfort
You can easily find veneer horror stories on the internet. Tales of weeks of pain and severe sensitivity abound. But in almost all of these cases, the dentist was outside the US and offered “lunchtime veneers,” rushing the procedure.
As mentioned above, Veneers application is not a technically simple procedure. Dentists who offer veneers should be specially trained, experienced, and committed to doing the work properly. Dr. Haider Al Fayadh certainly meets all of these requirements. He takes the time to perform the procedure correctly.
He will use a local anesthetic to numb your mouth during the procedure. Afterward, you may notice a bit of soreness or sensitivity in your teeth for a few days, but this discomfort can almost always be controlled with over-the-counter ibuprofen. In the rare event of more severe or persistent pain, Dr. Haider Al Fayadh is dedicated to helping his patients in any way possible.
4. The Cosmetic Outcome May Not Be Exactly What You Wanted
If you like a celebrity’s hairstyle, you can bring a photograph to your barber or stylist. Although you won’t look exactly like the celebrity, they can set you up with the same hairstyle. The same does not hold true for teeth. Teeth, mouth shape, and facial structure are unique, so a dentist will not be able to give you the exact smile you saw in a magazine or on the internet.
However, Dr. Haider Al Fayadh will make every effort to provide you with the smile you want. He can show you before and after photos of previous patients’ veneers. Dr. Haider Al Fayadh also provides his patients with temporary veneers to wear while their permanent veneers are being crafted. This gives you the opportunity to “try-out” your new smile and become used to the feeling of veneers.
Veneers are as much about artistry as they are about dental science. Any qualified dentist can check your mouth for cavities, but it takes a cosmetic dentist with years of experience, like Dr. Haider Al Fayadh, to offer truly gorgeous ones. We pride ourselves on having your new smile look natural!
5. You May Lose Too Much Tooth Mass
To apply veneer, Dr. Haider Al Fayadh will reshape your teeth a bit. It will also be necessary for him to remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth to allow the veneers to adhere to the tooth surface. This procedure is called prepping.
There have been cases where dentists have not been conservative enough in their prepping, removing too much of the tooth. This practice can lead to tooth sensitivity and other problems down the road.
Dr. Haider Al Fayadh is always careful to remove the smallest amount of tooth mass necessary for the procedure. If a tooth is not suitable for it, he will let you know and discuss your options with you, rather than going ahead with veneer application and risking your dental health or an unsatisfactory cosmetic outcome.
