I was told that I have gum disease all over my mouth. And in order to do my porcelain crown veneers, I need to have scaling and root planning done. Did the hygienist do a good job cleaning and treating my teeth and gum when the whole process took about an hour and 15 minutes. My invoice was for UL, UR, LL, LR (Perio scale&root pin-4+per quad)and six local antibiotic.

  • You have to wait till the gums heal that is there is no bleeding and they are firm and carol pink in color. It may take a minimun a week for gums to heal. But it depends on the extent of infammation in the gums.

  • It is always better to get the SCRP done before getting procelain crown veneers. If you donot get it done before getting veneers then with time your gums can recede exposing the margins of veneers and that looks very bad. Hygienst are trained for doing the SCRP and how much time is taken for procedure depends on the amount of deposits on your teeth.
