So you've decided that you want the million dollar smile, and you think veneers are the way to go. Well, one question that people ask when they are on the process of finding out things about veneers is "Are they painful?" And honestly the answer is no, yes, or maybe. That seems to be kind of a convoluted answer, but the amount veneers can be painful, honestly, based on the amount of reduction to the tooth. It's usually proportional to that, and what I mean by that is if you find someone who wants to make crown preps everywhere and do a lot of destruction to the tooth, then yeah, potentially it could be a little bit painful.
At Atlanta Dental Spa, we pride ourselves on being as conservative as possible, most of the time staying all within the enamel of the tooth. The enamel, believe it or not, does not have any triggers of sensitivity so we just don't have complaints of saying, "Oh, my veneers are sensitive" or "My teeth are sensitive after veneers." It usually just isn't a problem. Again being conservative, it benefits you on a whole lot of levels: teeth not being sensitive, you're preserving all your natural enamel, things like that.
So really it pays to do your due diligence when looking to find someone who is gonna change your smile, and it's an important thing because smiles are noticed just as much as your eyes. There's actually a study done that said, "Which is the most important facial feature?" The study came back literally 50/50 that it's either your eyes or your smile. We really don't have the power to change our eyes so much, but we do have the power to change our smile, so it's important to choose wisely.
