Q&A

Q How long will my porcelain veneers last?
   
A They will not wear out and materials can last a lifetime. They are however, subject to breakage, just like your real teeth.
 
Q Will this process ruin my natural teeth?
   
A Every effort is made to avoid detriment to your teeth. By using microscopes and specially designed dental instruments, we can ensure that minimal damage is done. In fact, teeth that have been filled or are particularly worn over time may actually be strengthened by this process!
 
Q Does it hurt?
   
A

Most procedures are totally painless and are done with no anaesthetic. Occasionally, as in the case of veneers, we offer basic local anaesthetic that is common to standard dental fillings. In some very complicated cases, we have the full range of pain relieving solutions, including, general anaesthetic, if necessary.

 
Q How much do you charge for crowns and veneers?
   
A What kind of crown or veneer or you interested in?  PFM (porcelain fused metal), precious or non precious, layered or stained, all ceramic, Procera, Empress, Eris, Lava, Inceram, pressed or feldspathic, translucent or opacious ingots?

As you can see, crowns and veneers are as varied as the cars we drive.  Even knowing these variables, when you cost compare, you may not fully appreciate the value of these services since the individual artistries of dentists and ceramists are varied.
 
Q How many appointments should I expect?
   
A Two clinical appointments are all that are needed for most cosmetic work.
 
Q How can I avoid the “Chicklet look”?
   
A A high degree of design and artistry is the key to aesthetic work. Our goal is to ensure that each tooth helps create a look that is both complimentary to your face and overall appearance and naturally undetectable.
