So you just noticed a laminate crack in your porcelain veneers or you noticed laminate break or come off? This can be a dental emergency. Here we are preparing a list of to do and not to do things to help you handle this dental emergency.
Firstly, carefully remove all the parts that are there in your mouth slightly, without damaging them more. If you only find one piece, then possibly your laminate has debonded and not broken.
If this is the case, your dentist may probably be able to reattach it. If it is broken then your dentist has only option- make a new one.
Here are more details:
You can also check the tooth if it came off. You will be able to see broken pieces still fixed. Damaged pieces of porcelain can be sharp or rough to your lips or tongue, so be careful.
Keep it safely.
If there are no damages, then you can easily take it to your dentist. By taking it safely you can save the price of a new one. Usually it is advised to wrap it in a tissue and keep it in a safe container like an empty bottle of medicine.
If this is the case, then there is very less probability that you will experience any severe problems between the time you found about the issues and when you visit the best dental clinic in Edmonton.
Remember, as your tooth has lost its front covering, your tooth might be more sensitive to cold or hot drinks and foods or it may be irritating or rough to your tongue or lips, so be careful.
A number of pharmacies sell white dental wax which is recommended for dental practices.
Repair: If just a small piece of your veneer has got damaged, your dentist may create a patch.
