Cosmetic dental procedures help to change the way your teeth look, whether you want to fill in gaps or have your teeth whitened. When deciding whether a cosmetic dental procedure is right for you, one important thing to consider is the recovery time after your cosmetic procedure. Smile Magic Dentistry aims to provide you with reliable, pain-free cosmetic dental services so that you can recover quickly and smile freely with the teeth that you want.
Recovery Time Factors
A few factors go into estimating your recovery time after a cosmetic dental procedure. These factors may include what type of procedure you had done and whether or not you tend to heal quickly. Each procedure is different and some may take longer for recovery than others may, and each individual person is different and some may take longer to recover while other people experience a quicker recovery. Following are a couple examples of procedures and their typical recovery times.
Simple Cosmetic Procedures
For some of the more simple cosmetic procedures that are not very invasive, such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, or caps, there is typically not any post-procedure sensitivity. Less invasive procedures may require a local anesthesia, in which case the recovery time is typically until the anesthesia wears off or is a couple of hours. Procedures such as these are usually scheduled for the mornings so that the patient can return to work that same afternoon. Smile Magic Dentistry offers teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and cap insertion procedures for your smile.
Complex Cosmetic Procedures
For some of the more complex cosmetic procedures that are more invasive, such as tooth implants or complete smile makeovers that may include laser gum reshaping as well as tooth implants and some more simple procedures, there may be some post-procedure sensitivity. Healing times may differ depending on individual patients and whether or not they tend to heal quickly normally. For tooth implants, the recovery time can take anywhere from a couple days to a couple weeks, with the average being a couple days, before you should go back into work. If you have many implants done rather than just one, you will take more time to recover, and soreness will usually take a week or two to go away completely.
The recovery time of your cosmetic dental procedure will depend on quite a few factors, including how quickly you tend to heal and what type of procedure you receive. Smile Magic Dentistry offers a range of cosmetic dental procedures, such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers and caps, dental implants, and complete smile makeovers that offer all of these procedures plus laser gum reshaping. For the most accurate estimate of your cosmetic dental procedure recovery time, it is best to talk to your cosmetic dentist about which cosmetic dental procedure you would prefer and what your concerns are about that procedure.
