After Crown, Veneers and Bridge Appointments

Coronas, chapas, y puentes usually take two or three appointments to complete. In the first visit, the teeth are prepared and molds of the mouth are taken.

Please refrain from eating and drinking hot beverages until the numbness is completely worn off.

Don’t be concerned if your speech is affected for the first few days. You’ll quickly adapt and speak normally. You may notice increased salivation. This is because your brain is responding to the new size and shape of your teeth. This should subside in about a week.

Occasionally a temporary crown may come off.En contacto con nosotrosif this happens and bring the temporary crown with you so we can re-cement it. It is very important for the temporary to stay in place, as it will prevent other teeth from moving and compromising the fit of your final restoration.
