Have you considered improving your smile with veneers but have been nervous about the actual process? Some people become uncomfortable at the thought of having their teeth altered but much to their surprise, the entire process is a seamless experience with no real discomfort.
At Australia Fair Dental, we offer a range of dental veneer options to fit your smile, budget and lifestyle. The three veneer options include:
- Composite veneers
- Porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers are the most durable of the three options and are a great long term solution that will be resistant to future discolourations.
The process patients go through to receive veneers should be ultimately pain free. Some people with very sensitive teeth experience some discomfort but there is no serious pain involved with veneers. With porcelain veneers, the process requires shaving down the natural teeth in preparation for the veneers. The teeth are shaped in a way that will allow the veneers to be placed on top and look as natural as possible.
Generally, if patients were to experience any discomfort it is during the shaping process. The beauty of porcelain veneers is that only a very small reduction is needed to accomplish the goal and more than often, the patient experiences no pain in the process at all. Once the teeth are shaped, the veneers are positioned in place and cemented. This process generally takes 2 appointments with the veneers lasting up to twenty years with proper professional treatment and good oral hygiene.
The whole experience of receiving veneers is very dependant on the person and the procedure. Receiving 4 veneers would be more comfortable than someone undergoing treatment for all of their teeth and the extent of reshaping can have an effect on the patient also.
Overall, our patients report they experience little to no discomfort throughout the process of the treatment. If you’re still not sure about veneers, this article looks at the process a little more in depth.
