Fab Smile Veneers present some answers to frequently asked questions we are often asked about our removable veneers. Read on to find out more about our products.
Can I Eat and Drink while Wearing Removable Veneers?
You can eat and drink normally while wearing veneers and even engage in other activities like smoking and kissing. However, eating and drinking will shorten your veneers’lifespan so avoid it where possible. Also for our cheaper Ideal we do advise avoiding very hot drinks. Elite perform best for eating and drinking. Also dont forget to clean your teeth regularly and keep your veneers clean to.
Will I Lisp while Wearing my Veneers?
As you adjust to wearing removable veneers you may have a lisp. Fortunately, given time and practice it will completely vanish. At most, you can expect any lisping to disappear after 72 hours and even sooner if you talk a lot during that time.
Will the Veneers become Discoloured with use?
Your veneers should not become discoloured so long as you take proper care of them. This means washing them with the provided soft brush, soap and the correct cleaning tablets at the end of every day.
Does Wearing Veneers Hurt?
No. Veneers simply clip over your natural teeth and should not cause any pain or damage. They may feel a little strange while you adjust to wearing them but given time they will feel completely normal. If they do cause pain then you should stop using them.
How Long can I Wear my Veneers?
During the day, you can wear your veneers for as long as you wish. It is recommended that you remove them for sleeping both to allow them to be cleaned overnight and to allow your teeth to breathe while you sleep.
Do I Need to See a Dentist?
You do not need to see a dentist when you are taking the impressions of your teeth and the process is completely pain-free. However, if you are struggling with the impressions kit then a dentist may be able to help take them for you.
What if my Impressions don’t Work?
If you are unsure, send us a photo after you have made your impressions. We will discuss with you whether you need to do more and we often include extra putty with the kit in case this should occur, or we can send you more if needed. Unlike other veneer companies we do not charge extra if you need further attempts at doing your impression- this is because we want the best result possible as we want you to be delighted with the end result. We are always happy to discuss impression taking with you, to help set your mind at ease.
What are Veneers made from?
Our veneers are made from a biocompatible dental-grade material that is made by the leading dental technology manufacturers. Ideal veneers are made from erkodur and Elite+ veneers are made from acetyl resin. Both of these materials have been extensively tested for their safety in dental applications.
What is the Difference Between Ideal and Elite?
The material used in Elite veneers is more durable and longer-lasting. The Elite veneers also come with extra detailing for a perfectly natural smile.
