Frequently Asked Questions - GlamSmile Veneers
This area should address any queries you have about GlamSmile Veneers. If you would like further information on GlamSmile, please contact Chatswood Dental Associates or 'Ask us a Question' by clicking the button within the relevant FAQ below. Contact Us page or call 9412 4488.
Will I need any local anaesthetic for GlamSmile?
GlamSmile are very thin veneers, so only minor tooth preparation is done with GlamSmile. For most patients, no local anaesthetic is required, but if you prefer to have the teeth numb, please let us know.
How many visits are required for GlamSmile?
Only a smile consultation visit and two dental visits are required. The first is for a consultation, taking your "before" photographs, deciding what you want for your smile and to discuss and answer any questions you may have. For the first dental visit, any necessary reshaping is done, and impressions of your teeth. At the second visit, your GlamSmile veneers are placed. Each visit takes approximately 1 hour.
After my first appointment, how long I get my new GlamSmile veneers?
Usually 3 to 4 weeks.
Should I get my teeth cleaned before GlamSmile?
Healthy teeth and gums are the foundation to a successful GlamSmile. If you have not had a visit to your hygienist in the past six months, having one prior to your GlamSmile appointment will help achieve the best results. If you plan ahead, you may be able to schedule both your impressions and hygienist appointment in one visit.
Do I need special toothpaste? Are there any flossing restrictions with GlamSmile veneers?
No, you brush and floss your GlamSmile veneers just as you would natural teeth. Proper dental hygiene is essential to maintaining your beautiful GlamSmile. As with natural teeth, low abrasion toothpaste is effective in removing plaque.
Can I still eat my favourite foods such as apples with GlamSmile?
Yes! GlamSmile veneers look and feel just like natural teeth, and function like natural teeth. You can eat your favourite foods or anything else that would not damage natural teeth without fear of damaging your GlamSmile veneers.
I hate the gap between my front teeth, can GlamSmile help me?
As long as the gap is not too wide, GlamSmile veneers can close the gap.
I have tried whitening my teeth, but they are not white enough. Can GlamSmile veneers make them whiter?
GlamSmile veneers will mask stained and discoloured teeth. With GlamSmile veneers, there is an alternative whitening choice.
My teeth are overlapping. Am I still a candidate for GlamSmile?
GlamSmile veneers can change the shape and alignment of your teeth making them look straighter. As everyone has different expectations, we can work with you, and discuss treatment options specific to your individual needs.
I need braces but I hate the thought of the discomfort. Can I get GlamSmile veneers instead?
Orthodontics is the most conservative method of correcting mis-aligned teeth, but we appreciate that some find wearing braces uncomfortable. We would still suggest you seek an opinion from an Orthodontist. Where the mis-alignment is moderate, GlamSmile veneers make the teeth appear straighter and more uniform.
I play sports, what happens if I chip a veneer?
With GlamSmile, all we do is remove the chipped veneer and take a new impression for the replacement GlamSmile veneer. Wearing a mouthguard is advisable, not only to protect your beautiful GlamSmile smile, but also to protect your own teeth.
What are GlamSmile veneers made of, and how long will they last?
GlamSmile veneers are porcelain, individually made for each person; this is the same materials that have been used successfully to make veneers. With proper maintenance, many people are still enjoying their veneers after 10 years.
If for some reason, I wanted to remove the GlamSmile veneers, is that possible?
Because GlamSmile veneers are very thin, and in most cases very little shaping of the teeth is done, removal of the GlamSmile veneer will just expose your own intact healthy teeth.
I hear there are cheaper options available.
Yes there is; Snap On Smile has recently come onto the market. Snap On fits over your existing teeth and is made in one piece from a resin, much like a denture. It is a cheaper option, as the cost is under $2000, and has a 1 year warranty. It can be worn whilst eating, as you can take it out after meals to remove the food caught inside. It is not meant to be worn all the time.
At this time, Chatswood Dental Associates do not offer Snap On Smile as most of our patients come to us to get rid of their dentures, preferring to have their teeth inside their mouth, and not on their bedside. GlamSmile are bonded onto your teeth, so do not need to be taken out, and because they are made one per tooth, and not joined in one piece, you can clean them as easily as you can clean your normal teeth.
