Q Is the GlamSmile procedure painful? Will I need shots of anesthetic?
A No, unlike traditional veneers (which would be very painful without shots), GlamSmile requires no anesthesia because there’s no grinding down of tooth structure in most cases.
Q How many dental visits are necessary to complete the GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers process?
AOnly two short dental visits are required. The first is for a consultation, taking your “before” photographs and impressions of your teeth. At the second visit, your GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers are placed. Each visit takes approximately 1 hour.
Q After my first appointment, how long do I have to wait before I come back for my final appointment to have my GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers put on?
A Usually 3 weeks.
Q Should I get my teeth cleaned before my second appointment?
A If your teeth have not been cleaned within six months you should have a professional cleaning. If you plan ahead, you may be able to schedule both your impressions and a cleaning in one visit.
Q With GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers can I use my favorite toothpaste? Will I still be able to floss my teeth?
A Yes, you will simply brush and floss your GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers just as you would your natural teeth. Proper dental hygiene is essential to maintaining your beautiful GlamSmile. As with natural teeth, you should always try to use low abrasion toothpaste to effectively but gently remove stain, plaque and tartar.
Q Can I eat foods like nuts, corn on the cob and apples with GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers?
A Yes! Remember, GlamSmile veneers look, feel and operate just like natural teeth. You can eat your favorite foods without fear of damaging your GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers.
Q I would like to close the gap between my front teeth, can GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers work for me?
A Yes, a “gap” is called a diastema, and can be successfully and permanently closed with GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers, as long as the gap is not too wide.
Q I have tried many whitening treatments but they never last long and I’m still unhappy with my tooth color, can GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers be used for permanent tooth whitening?
A GlamSmile veneers will whiten severely stained (even tetracycline) and discolored teeth once and for all. GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers offer a truly affordable whitening solution!
Q My teeth are misaligned, some even overlap. Am I a GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers candidate?
AGlamSmile Porcelain Veneers can definitely change the shape, size and alignment of your teeth making them look straighter and more symmetrical. Since every veneer case is unique, your GlamSmile dentist will assess your smile and provide you with treatment options specific to your individual needs.
Q I think I need braces but I don’t want to go through the long, inconvenient and unattractive process. Can I get GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers instead?
A In most cases, yes! Your GlamSmile certified dentist will be able to evaluate your teeth and make the final analysis as to whether orthodontics is necessary. In cases where the misalignment moderate, GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers will change the alignment and the shape of the teeth making them appear straighter and more uniform.
Q What are GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers made of? And how long are they expected to last?
AGlamSmile Porcelain Veneers are made of time-tested, high-quality pure porcelain, the same materials that have been successfully used to make traditional veneers. Many people who got veneers 20 years ago are still enjoying them today with no problems.
Q If for some reason, I wanted to remove the GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers, is that possible?
A Yes, GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers are reversible. This is because GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers do not require the reduction of healthy, sensitive tooth structure. Underneath your GlamSmile Porcelain Veneers, your natural teeth are still healthy, strong and intact.
