Does It Hurt to Get Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a popular treatment for those looking to improve their smile, but some people wonder if getting veneers will hurt. In the video below, Dr. David P. Ney explains the methods he uses to minimize discomfort when you get your veneers.

You know, hurt is kind of a hard word. Does it hurt to walk through a door where you have to give money to a bank? Yeah, it does hurt. Okay, so hurt is kind of a real kind of subjective thing.

Typically not. We’re taking away very little tooth structure. We’re going to get you numb. We’re not going even into the actual gum tissue very much, but staying open always a process. So your jaw could be sore, your tissue around the teeth could be sore, but typically we’re talking very minor issues.
