Can I Expect My Veneers to Make My Teeth Sensitive?

If you’ve read anything about veneers, you’re probably excited about what you’ve heard. They’re capable of some incredible changes, from the color to the alignment of your teeth.

However, you may also know that in order to get veneers, you will need to remove a portion of your enamel. That being the case, you might wonder whether you could suffer increased sensitivity as a result of the treatment. Here’s what you should know.

What is Tooth Sensitivity?

Have you ever felt a twinge of discomfort when biting into an ice cream cone, or maybe when you take a sip of coffee? That’s temperature sensitivity, and it’s a consequence of thin enamel that allows the interior of the tooth to be exposed.

Will Veneers Make My Teeth Sensitive?

In order to have your veneers sit flush with your teeth, you’ll need to remove a small portion of your enamel. This may make you concerned about the prospect of sensitivity.

However, you don’t necessarily have to worry about this in the case of veneers. They will be there to cover the teeth once the enamel has been removed, meaning that you can expect to be completely comfortable once the veneers are in place.

What Happens If My Veneer Falls Off?

If a veneer falls off, then the interior of your tooth will likely be exposed to some extent, leading to sensitivity. For that reason, you’ll need to replace any veneer that you lose if you want your teeth to be protected.
