Are dental veneers painful?

If you are unhappy with your smile due to cracks, chips, gaps or other problems in your teeth, then you may wish to consider dental veneers. These thin porcelain shells are attached to the front of the teeth and create a uniform, seamless smile.

While some transient discomfort is to be expected (as with any dental treatment), dental veneers are not painful – at least not when delivered by Care Dental Platinum, your experienced dentist for nervous patients in London. Dr Bashar Al-Naher, a leading dentist with many qualifications, has invented and developed the Enjoyable Dentistry TechniqueTM for every patient who is afraid of the dentist.

How are veneers attached to the teeth?

Once you decide that dental veneers are the right treatment for you, your dentist will prepare your teeth by scraping down a bit of tooth enamel. This preparation is necessary since it will enable your veneers to stay in place firmly and will not harm your tooth or enamel. Once this is done, we will take impressions of the teeth and use them to create your customised veneers. When they are ready, we will stabilise them on your teeth with zero discomfort.

Veneers should be painful

Your dentist for nervous patients in London will do their best to ensure that you are receiving the most comfortable treatment possible. Veneers should not be painful, yet some people may experience discomfort. For this reason, we recommend the Enjoyable Dentistry TechniqueTM, a combination of laughing gas, visual imaging and painless dental tools. Prior to the treatment, all of our patients will receive local anaesthesia. Veneers are more comfortable than other treatments because the preparation of the tooth is at the level of the gum and not below. Moreover, no pain should not be experienced by a patient when the veneers are glued to the teeth. With proper hygiene and regular visits to the dentist for nervous patients in London, dental veneers should last for many years without problems.
