The biggest fear of many is the pain, but while the veneers are being placed it should be pain free. During the procedure normally the patient is put under anesthesia, in some situations a patient may request nitric oxide instead.
While the teeth are being prepared for the veneers there should be no discomfort at all.
The second portion of the process entails the cementation of the veneers, again anesthesia is given but at this time during the dental work teeth tend to be a bit sensitive. An over the counter pain medication is also suggested after leaving the office to relieve even the slightest pain possibly experienced.
