Most dental local anesthetics will wear off within a couple of hours. Generally, anesthesia will last one hour on the top and up to four hours on the bottom. If you must eat before your anesthesia wears off, choose something soft, avoid hot beverages and try to chew on the opposite side you had work done on!
Veneers are indicated for several different reasons:
- Teeth that have diastemas (gaps) in between them
- Teeth that are broken
- Chipped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Teeth that are worn down
Veneers are custom-made and designed to cover the front of teeth. They are commonly used to fix esthetic problems.
