Do Veneers Hurt?
Veneers are widely recognized as an effective way to achieve a perfected smile by reshaping and resizing the teeth and eliminating stains.
We know that you want to have beautiful, radiant teeth. Nevertheless, you might wonder – Does it hurt to get veneers placed?
Some patients with dental phobias or those who have previously endured painful dental procedures are afraid to get veneers. They perceive this operation to be painful and stressful.
Why Get Veneers?
Many people ask: Which is better, composite or porcelain veneers?
Composite restorations are a good choice if you’re looking for a quick fix to your aesthetic issues. If the goal is to achieve a high quality transformation that will last you for many years, then porcelain veneers are your best bet. Compared to composite, porcelain veneers are more aesthetically pleasing, durable, and less prone to chipping.
The doctor assesses the condition of the oral cavity, facial muscle tone, and jaw movements. Afterward, they discuss with the patient which teeth require the placement of restoration overlays and create a 3D design for the future smile. Typically, the examination and X-rays do not cause discomfort.
The dentist cleans the oral cavity, makes adjustments, and secures the permanent porcelain veneers with dental cement. During this stage, the patient only feels a bit of pressure.
Why is it better to perform tooth restoration under a microscope?
Fixing restorations under a microscope ensures an aesthetic outcome, excellent fit without gaps, and the absence of soft tissue inflammation.
Veneer Placement - Example
This is a case of a patient who had veneers placed at another clinic. In this instance, the veneers caused pain due to the mishandling of the installation technique in the other clinic.
After a thorough diagnosis, Dr. Tetri, a board-certified periodontist, performed gum surgery on the patient. The result in the second photo depicts healthy gums and beautiful gum contour. The patient is no longer experiencing any pain.
