We have placed temporary restorations on your teeth today. They may feel rough or become slightly discolored. Avoid dark pigmented foods and drinks, such as red wine, coffee, tea, etc. Your provisionals are made of plastic and are fragile, so please avoid biting down into anything hard, chewy, or sticky. Although we try to make your provisionals as nice looking as possible, they are not an indication of what your final veneers will look like. The length will be similar, but the final shape and contour will be different.
- Sensitivity to cold:
This is very normal and will subside once your definitive restorations are placed. You may want to avoid drinking extremely cold liquids until then.
To ensure your gum tissue remains healthy, I have given you a large syringe that is to be filled with chlorhexidine. I want you to carefully express the liquid along your gum line where your provisionals meet the gums; do this twice daily.
Feel free to call me evenings or weekends if you have any concerns or questions.
Congratulations on your hew smile!
