Will veneers make my teeth more sensitive?

teeth, health, smile, dentistWhen porcelain veneers are fitted over existing teeth, the result is beautiful as the veneers cover up minor imperfections. In the process of getting fitted for veneers, a small amount of the protective enamel has to be removed to ensure they bind sufficiently.

Key takeaways:

– Some people experience sensitivity after getting veneers – but not everyone.

– Any sensitivity is usually temporary, only lasting for a few days or weeks.

– In people with compromised tooth enamel, veneers can actually protect against sensitivity.

– For any severe sensitivity that lasts longer than 2 months it is advisable to see your dentist.
