Veneers are usually not painful whilst you are having the treatment.
However, some have reported slight sensitivity during the settling down period after the final fitting. This is quite normal and nothing to worry about. It usually only lasts for a few days and very soon after subsidies. More.
The sensitivity is due to the bonding process where an inorganic substance (the veneer) has been bonded to an organic component (your tooth).
In complex cases, involving a large amount of treatment, you may experience a little uncomfortableness while your teeth settle down.
Your dentist will discuss how you will be after any treatment at the examination stage. Read more.
The clinical assessment is a very important appointment, after which you will fully understand how your treatment will proceed. The dentist will also highlight what to expect and you will have plenty of opportunities to have all your questions answered. See the trial smile.
The thoroughness of the clinical assessment is also very essential. This is very important so that the appropriate treatment is selected; the more compatible the treatment plan the better suited it will be for you. This means you are less likely to have any major problems in the future. It also means that you are less likely to experience difficulties during the treatment.
It is important to also follow all the relevant advice given before, during and after the treatment. If this advice is not followed then you can end up experiencing discomfort from other associated conditions such as sore gums or infection.

We aim to give you a pain-free experience. So as much as is possible we will select those treatments that are also known for their comfort as well as their longevity. For example, we select Ultrathin veneers whenever possible since there is minimal or no preparation involved, which means you are less likely to experience any discomfort or pain.
We also have a dedicated team that is focused on helping those patients that also suffer from dental phobia or any level of dental anxiety. We understand that this too can give you an uncomfortable experience if not managed correctly.
You can be reassured that we will use a variety of things to help make your treatment free from pain. These treatments can include special techniques for pain control, an absolute pain-free local anaesthesia and special calming products such as NuCalm.
We have now been focused on helping patients with anxiety for over 20 years. All our treatment protocols have been set up in a way to alleviate pain and anxiety.
With every treatment we carry out at our Hertfordshire clinic, we do so to make sure that we improve the oral health of your mouth, teeth and gums.
