Dental veneers San Diego are one of the most popular treatments for patients who want to improve the aesthetic beauty of their smile. Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain shell that bonded on the surface of the front teeth, can disguise a number of smile flaws such as chips, cracks, stains, and misshapen teeth.
Most of the people are afraid to go to the dentist. Same like in dental veneers San Diego, some people might worry that getting Porcelain Veneers may hurt. As discomfort experience of every patient is different. We can’t say anything about your experience. But in general, we can say that there is little discomfort associated with the porcelain veneers procedure.
Tooth Preparation for Veneers
One of the reasons getting veneers hurt is that it requires preparation of a natural tooth for the placement of veneers. In order to place Porcelain veneers right, the dentist removes a small amount of tooth enamel usually about 0.5mm or less. So that, veneers fit snugly on your teeth. If veneers are placed without removing enamel then your teeth may look bulky and create a shelf that can trap food and shelter bacteria in your oral cavity.
In this procedure, our Best Dentist in San Diego uses local anesthesia to make sure that your teeth do not hurt at all. Once the tooth is prepared, the dentist will take the impression of your teeth and placed temporary veneers on the surface of your teeth. Bonding of temporary veneers doesn’t hurt at all.
Once your teeth have been prepared for veneers the dentist will send the impression of your teeth in a dental lab. You will have to be with your temporary veneers until your final porcelain veneers are ready. Although your teeth are numb during the tooth preparation procedure they still experienced the stress of vibration from the preparation tools. The vibration may lead to tooth pulp inflamed. The swelling may create pressure on the tooth nerve which causes little discomfort. Some people also experienced tooth sensitivity during this period.
