FAQs on Dental Procedures

Porcelain veneers address various aesthetic concerns by altering the color, shape, size, and alignment of teeth, creating a more attractive smile. They are tailored to blend with the natural color of adjacent teeth for a flawless transformation.

While porcelain veneers are durable, they might need replacement due to wear or damage. Their longevity can be extended with proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits.

Dental implants involve inserting a titanium post into the jawbone, which integrates with the bone over time, providing a solid base for a replacement tooth or crown.

Dental implants come in various forms, such as endosteal (most common, placed in the jawbone), subperiosteal (on or above the jawbone, under the gums), and zygomatic (in the cheekbone when upper jawbone is inadequate).

Dental implants can last indefinitely with proper care, including routine oral hygiene and dental check-ups.

Full arch dental implants replace all teeth in an arch, using multiple implants to support a fixed bridge or denture, providing better stability and function than removable dentures.

Obtaining porcelain veneers usually takes several visits over a few weeks, involving tooth preparation, impressions, veneer fabrication, and application.

Bruxism can damage veneers, so it’s essential to address this condition, possibly with a nightguard, before getting veneers.

Implant failure is uncommon but can happen due to factors like poor oral hygiene, infections, excessive force, insufficient bone, or systemic diseases. Good oral care and regular dental visits can reduce this risk.

Veneers can handle normal eating, but it’s best to avoid very hard or sticky foods to prevent damage. Your dentist will advise on how to care for your veneers.
