There are often no or minimal complications when carrying out treatment on teeth which need no or minimal preparation. If you have any concerns about your procedure, we welcome you to come and speak to one of our dentists in the Hertfordshire area near Waterford and Ware.
When extensive tooth reduction is chosen rather than moving teeth with braces, or on some occasions, sensitivity may arise. This may last for a few days. This can be reduced by applying Sensodyne Gel.to the affected area after cleaning your teeth and allowing the gel to remain in place for an hour before eating, drinking or rinsing. If this protocol is followed 2-3 times a day, then this will reduce and sensitivity within days.
If the tooth reduction is severe, which could occur in the below situations, then there may be a risk to the tooth requiring a root filling:
Teeth that have had extensive treatment previously may be weak at the outset, in this scenario the option will be given whether to avoid porcelain veneer. A complete assessment will determine this.
There is a reduced risk of side effects or complication with veneer treatment as you become older.
The side effects also reduce significantly with correct maintenance and aftercare.For more Information on our treatments, please click here

My dental plan included quite intrusive treatment, all of which was carried out with concern for my comfort. Time was taken to insure that I was included in every decision to be made.
Everyone was very friendly and made me feel 'at home'. Thanks to the dentists at this amazing practice!!
