The Edge Smiles. Com - faq Will my teeth need to be reduced? Answer – there are many cases that set up well for limited reduction, or no reduction, but every case is different. Our goal is to maintain as much natural enamel as possible with the understanding that form must follow function. When the only tool you have is a weekend course on cosmetic dentistry, you tend to do everything the same way. Not so, in our office. Edge veneers and crowns can be done without preparation, or with minimal preparation in many instances, but every patients case is different.
The Edge Smiles. com- - faq Ive heard veneers break sometimes, what can be done to prevent that? Answer – First and most important, form must follow function, so we are sure the bites of all patients we treat are well balanced. It is important to educate the patient about not using the front teeth to bite into hard objects, like finger nails, or crusty rolls or pistachio nuts. If the patient grinds their teeth at night, they need to be fitted with a night guard. We prefer the NTI appliance. Above is a case done by a dentist with limited training.
The Edge Smiles. com- - faq How much time will it take for my smile design to be completed? Answer – most cases can be completed in about 5 weeks from start to finish. We need 2 weeks to blueprint the case, and then we will be ready to make your temporaries. These provide us with a template for your success, and is a step left out by many weekend trained cosmetic dentists. Once the lab has your final impressions, it generally takes 3 weeks or less for the finished porcelain artwork. Each visit will take about 2 – 3 hours (assuming a typical 8 tooth case).
The Edge Smiles. com- - faq How much will it cost? Answer – You can figure an 8 tooth case will be about $12,000 and yes, we can help you finance the treatment.
The Edge Smiles. com- - faq How long will The Edge Veneers and Crowns last? In our experience, we have seen bonded porcelain restorations last over 25 years. While we cannot promise that for all restorations we can tell you that if we werent comfortable with the process, and the longevity of them, we wouldnt have had The Edge products bonded in our own mouths.
The Edge Smiles. com- - faq Can crooked teeth be repaired with The Edge Veneers? Absolutely. A case is demonstrated on this page.
