  4. What should I expect after getting porcelain veneers?

Hi, I’m Dr Kim Nguyen, one of the dentists here at Pitt St Dental Centre in Sydney CBD.

One of our new patients, Jodie from Milsons Point, is about to embark on her smile makeover journey with 12 porcelain veneers.

During her smile consultation, she asked me, “What should I expect after a porcelain veneer procedure?”

Well, Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment that can transform your smile by improving the appearance of discoloured, crooked, or misshapen teeth. After the procedure, you can expect to experience some changes in your mouth and your daily routine.

Here’s what you should know:

1 Black

After getting porcelain veneers, you may experience some tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures for up to a few days/weeks. This is normal and should subside as your teeth adjust to the veneers.

Depending on the extent of your treatment, you may notice some changes in your bite. We will work to ensure that your veneers are properly aligned with your other teeth, but it may take some time for your bite to feel normal again.

2 Black

Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for the long-term success of your porcelain veneers. We recommend brushing and flossing twice daily and using a non-abrasive toothpaste to avoid damaging the veneers.

It is so important that we see you for follow-up appointments. Once you have your final veneers fitted, you’ll need to schedule to see us again after a few weeks. At this appointment, we ensure your new veneers are fitted and functioning well. These appointments are important for ensuring the long-term success of your veneers.

And perhaps one of the most noticeable changes after getting porcelain veneers is finding yourself smiling more often!

So if you have been thinking about upgrading your smile, we would love to look after you. We also offer flexible payment plans to help you get your dream smile faster. 

Simply call us on 9223 4767, complete the booking form on our website, or send us a DM on social media, and we’ll be in touch to help you organise your consultation. See you in the next video.
