Does getting veneers hurt? What to expect

Dental Veneers can be placed by a Southlake cosmetic dentist at DaVinci DentistryIf you’re thinking about getting veneers, a Southlake cosmetic dentist at DaVinci Dentistry can discuss with you whether you’re a candidate for the procedure. Healthy gums and teeth are necessary, and those with structural or cosmetic issues like chips, cracks, minor misalignment and discoloration are most drawn to this option. When patients choose to get veneers, our team will outline the treatment process and answer any questions you might have.

It’s actually pretty common for patients to ask if getting veneers hurts. While discomfort is typically minimal, every patient is different, so we give you an idea of what to expect at each phase of treatment.

For starters, in order for porcelain veneers to fit tightly against your teeth, it’s necessary to remove a very small portion of enamel from the teeth. If you’re concerned about discomfort during this stage, talk to us about options for anesthesia. Afterward, if soreness persists because of pressure on the teeth, over-the-counter medications can be used.

Veneers at DaVinci Dentistry in SouthlakeWhile digital imaging allows for same-day restorations in many cases, temporary veneers may sometimes be necessary. Sensitivity to pressure, heat and cold is more common with temporary veneers but should dissipate once they are replaced with your veneers, which are sturdier and more insulated.

Porcelain veneers may hold the key to giving you the stunning smile you have always wanted. When uncertainties about discomfort occur, we’ll be available to discuss your options so that you feel confident about your decision. Contact us at 817-251-9333. We’re here to serve residents throughout Tarrant County.
