Do Veneers Hurt?

Most patients report no pain or discomfort at all during treatment.

This is because the procedure is minimally-invasive.

The only preparation required for veneers is the removal of a thin layer of enamel from your teeth.

This layer of enamel is equal in thickness to the veneer, so it’s removed to ensure a seamless fit.

Do veneers ruin your teeth?

This means that having the veneers attached does not ruin or hurt the tooth underneath. Secondly, porcelain veneers are not made of enamel like the front of your natural teeth. In fact, they actually have the advantage over natural teeth in terms of resistance to damage or staining.

Are getting veneers painful?

Bonding sensitivity is real and it can happen to you.

Days after the procedure, there is often an adjustment period where your bite might feel off and you feel zings of pain.

How do veneers stay on?

A special cement is applied to the veneer and the veneer is then placed on your tooth. Once properly position on the tooth, your dentist will apply a special light beam to the dental veneer, which activates chemicals in the cement, causing it to harden or cure very quickly.
