Do Dental Veneers Hurt?
Dental veneers, also known as porcelain veneers, are placed over the front of teeth to address myriad cosmetic imperfections. While incredibly thin, dental veneers do require a small amount of tooth preparation to ensure a smooth transition between your restorations and adjacent teeth. This tooth preparation is performed under a local anesthetic and should not be uncomfortable at all. However, if you are nervous about your procedure, Aloha dentist Dr. Michael Negru would be happy to discuss ways we can help you achieve optimal comfort.
Sedation dentistry offers a way for patients who may be nervous or uncomfortable prior to their procedure to remain calm during even longer treatments. The safe and effective sedation options offered by Dr. Negru allow patients to feel calm and relaxed while still remaining conscious enough to respond to directions. This eliminates many of the risks associated with sleep or IV sedation but still offers the benefits of full relaxation.
Sedation dentistry is a wonderful option for many of our patients, but may not be right for everyone. To learn if it is a good option for you, please contact Bright Smile Dental Care online or by calling our Aloha, Oregon area office at 503-848-3606 today.
