Tooth sensitivity after dental veneers

Veneers are a wonderful “tool” dentists use to cover up minor imperfections like chipped or discoloured teeth. Dentists frequently get asked about the effect of dental veneers on tooth sensitivity.

Key takeaways:

– Although some people experience initial sensitivity when veneers are first bonded to the teeth, many people experience no sensitivity at all.

– Sensitivity may occur due to removal of a thin layer of the tooth’s surface enamel.

– Severe sensitivity lasting more than a couple of months may be an indicator that the veneers have not been fitted correctly.

See your dentist if sensitivity lasts longer than two months.
