Before you start
Do I have to have my teeth cleaned before the procedure?
Healthy and clean teeth are a pre-condition for a successful result.
I have a gap between my front teeth. Are veneers a solution for me?
Yes! If the opening is not too large, veneers can close the gap perfectly.
I have tried to whiten my teeth with bleaching techniques, but I was disappointed about the result. Are veneers a solution?
Yes, veneers offer a permanent solution for seriously discoloured teeth.
My teeth are crooked and overlap. Do I have to wear braces or are veneers a solution for me?
Veneers will be a solution in most cases. Your dentist will analyse your teeth and advice you about this. GlamSmile veneers can change the shape, size and alignment of your teeth, making your teeth look more even and symmetric. Every veneer is made individually, tailor-made for each patient's teeth and mouth. Everything depends on the extent to which your teeth need to be corrected.
Is it painful and safe?
In most cases the dentist does not need to alter existing dental structure so there is no need for anaesthesia and the veneers placements is painless. Teeth remain intact and unchanged, therefore the treatment is completely safe.
How many veneers will be fitted?
Most patients have both their upper and lower arches treated and always the teeth withinthe "smile line". Depending on how broad your smile is, 6, 8 or 10 veneers will be fitted. If you only choose upper veneers, the lower teeth will usually be whitened.
How many visits to the dentist are required?
Just two visits to the dentist are needed to give you a stunning pure-white smile. During the first visit photographs and mouth impressions will be made. The veneers are then placed during the second visit. Every visit lasts about 1 hour.
What does a treatment with veneers cost?
The recommended retail price is 399 euros per veneer. The price varies from person to person. In order to know the exact price for your veneers, you can have a discussion without obligation with a Glamsmile consultant and a glamsmile dentist.”
Can veneers break or crack?
GlamSmile veneers are of an exceptional quality. However, you have to take care of them, just as you would your natural teeth. You have to avoid point-to-point contacts. For instance, biting your nails is absolutely forbidden. However, if a veneer breaks or cracks, the dentist can remove that veneer and order a new one from GlamSmile.
How long do the veneers last?
Nothing is for ever: not crowns , not dental bridges and neither are veneers. However, we can say that hybrid veneers lastt for 6 to 8 years and porcelain veneers 8 to 10 years. Of course, it depends on your personal dental hygiene and if you take good care of your veneers, you can probably keep them much longer.
What if I get caries on one of my teeth?
No problem: the dentist can handle it on the inside or from the bottom.
How can I best take care of my veneers?
To protect your stunning white teeth, conscientious dental hygiene is a main factor. Brushing your teeth correctly twice a day is indispensable and flossing is also part of the daily routine. Go see the dentist at least twice a year for a check-up.
Can I still eat anything I want?
With veneers you can still eat everything. You only have to avoid point-to-point contact.
