Temporary Veneers

Temporary Veneers


The temporary veneers that we just placed are made of acrylic, and they will serve you for a short period of time.  A few comments about this temporary will be helpful to you.


Very Fragile Temporary Veneers:

    Be Very Careful.  The temporary veneers are only lightly attached to your teeth.

    Try to Avoid using your front teeth for Anything! (Except smiling J)                    

    The temporary veneers can Break, Chip or even Come Off.

Brushing, Flossing & Cleaning Around the Temporary Veneers:

    Brush normally around the temporary veneers.

    Do NOT Floss on either side of the temporary veneers.

    Use the Prescription Fluoride Toothpaste on both sides of the temporary veneers at least

    once every day as we showed you.


    Do NOT Eat until the Anesthetic wears off...anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours.

    Do NOT Eat ANYTHING on your front teeth!  The temporary veneers are VERY fragile.

    Use your back teeth for biting & tearing, or cut up food into smaller pieces first.

Color, Shape, Size:

    The shape & size of the temporary is very similar to the Porcelain Veneers.  

    The temporary veneers will feel large or big. This is a normal sensation.

    They will also feel rough because the acrylic is not smooth.

    The Color of the temporary, being acrylic, does not resemble the Porcelain.

Tooth Sensitivity:

     Temporary veneers can be sensitive to cold, hot or sweet foods. This is not uncommon. This will not be the case for the porcelain veneers. The temporary veneers will strange. Because

      it is one piece, you may have the tendency to try to push the temporary with your  bottom

      front teeth.  This feeling will not be present with the porcelain veneers.
