So, how do veneers feel? Veneers feel like your own teeth, but even better. When you feel the porcelain veneer with your tongue, there’s nothing smoother- not even your own enamel is as smooth as porcelain!
And how does it feel to get your veneers? In most cases no anesthesia is needed because little or no enamel is removed from the teeth. In most cases because no enamel is removed, there isn’t any drilling and when drilling is needed, in most cases, it’s minimal and in the enamel, so most people are comfortable without getting numb. If your teeth are sensitive, it’s easy enough to give anesthesia, and we have several tricks to make that experience comfortable for you.
When enamel is removed and it would be noticeable, temporary veneers are placed so you have a lovely smile while you’re waiting for the laboratory to custom make your veneers and new smile. It’s exciting for you to have a preview of what your new smile is going to look like. It’s really exciting to think that your real veneers are going to look even better. Having temporary veneers also gives you an opportunity to make requests for any changes in size, shape, or color that you would like in the finished veneers.
When you have your appointment to bond the veneers to the front of your teeth, after removing any temporary veneers, the doctor puts a solution called etching solution on the front of your teeth to make microscopic openings for the bonding material to enter and connect the veneer to your enamel. When your veneers are bonded on, you have a beautiful, smooth, shiney, bright new smile!
