Is the Veneer Process Painful?
Watch this video to learn more about the porcelain veneer process and any discomfort you can expect during the procedure.
Some people want to know if the process of getting veneers is painful and there’s pretty much no pain in having the veneers done. We numb it so you’re comfortable, but we’re not removing all of the enamel off of the tooth. We’re basically just prepping about 3/10 of a millimeter into the enamel. So there’s still plenty of enamel on the tooth.
And once we put the temporary veneer over that, that you would have for a couple of weeks while the laboratory is making the final veneer, there’s pretty much no discomfort at all.
