Bleeding in the gums after porcelain veneers is actually normal, but you should take it seriously. Just because it’s normal doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take precautions.
Because if action is not taken immediately, it can cause serious problems. These can be caused by the dentist, as well as the patient’s inability to perform effective oral care.
The main reason caused by the doctor is that the prostheses are planned in a way that puts too much pressure on the gum.
If the prosthesis made puts pressure on the gum, over time, the blood flow will be disrupted in the areas where the gum and the prosthesis come into contact, and the gum will bleed and become a bruised state.
Imagine that you are tightly tying your finger with a rope, and after a while, you will see that your fingertips are bruised due to impaired blood flow.
The same applies to dentures that press on the gums. Because the dentures are attached to the teeth, the pressure in the area will never decrease if it puts pressure on the gums.
In response, the gum becomes edematous and bleeding in response, which manifests itself in the form of a dark red image on the gum, which differs from its light pink color in a healthy state.
In such a situation, there is nothing that the patient can do on his own to correct the situation. He can’t prevent this situation by taking care of oral care as much as he wants.
The patient is left alone with the consequences, which are manifested by bleeding gums, bad breath that cannot be prevented, a feeling of pressure with each brushing.
However, the gum is a tissue that has the ability to regenerate itself very quickly. If the dentures that have a splinter effect are removed with timely intervention, the damage caused by the situation is repaired by the body with immediate relief and recovery of the gums in a short time.
Causes of bleeding in the gums after porcelain veneers
Bleeding gums that occur immediately after your porcelain veneer is done are normal. Bleeding gums after veneer teeth can be caused by minor damage to the gums after cleaning the cementation that is, gluing residues. If there is bleeding in your gums after a long period has passed, it is not normal.
Gum bleeding caused by a made dental veneer or dental bridge will take longer to treat. Because temporary teeth should be applied before removing them from the poorly performed restoration.
Then, when the gum heals and there is a recovery, new veneers should be applied by taking a measure according to the shape of the new gum from the mouth.
If the cause of gum bleeding is infection and there is an implant that needs to be removed in this area, there may be a treatment process that lasts up to 5-6 months.
It is important that the treatment is completed successfully, rather than the duration of treatment. Therefore, you need to go to the dentist as soon as possible.
How long does it take for gums to heal after veneers?
The patient is expected to wait up to 1 week for the gums to heal. This period may also be longer depending on the patient’s condition. Veneers are installed after the gums have healed. Dental bridge treatment is performed by losing a single tooth between teeth.
We can tell by the color whether the gums are healthy or not. A good and healthy gum is clear from the fact that it is smooth, shiny, fully grasps the tooth and its color is pink. After the necessary treatment procedures have been performed, the gums will acquire their own color.
The treatments to be applied will vary according to the needs of the patient. Which treatment to apply is decided by the attending dentist. After gum treatment, the recovery period vary between 11-15 days depending on the patient and treatment.
