Does It Hurt to Get Porcelain Veneers?

When performed by an experienced cosmetic dentist, the porcelain veneers procedure should cause the patient little to no pain. Traditionally, the affected teeth need to be “prepped” for the veneers, which entails removing some of the natural enamel and tooth material to accommodate veneer thickness and securely bond them into place. However, Dr. John Cross is happy to offer our patients at OC Lifesmiles DURAthin® porcelain veneers – an innovative type of dental veneer that is typically considered a “minimal prep” product.

With DURAthin® porcelain veneers, nearly all of the natural tooth structure can remain intact. Dr. Cross evaluates each patient’s needs and desires, and in some situations, the veneers procedure can be performed without the need for anesthetic or tooth preparation. Each DURAthin® veneer is approximately as thick as a contact lens and is attached to the tooth with a strong dental adhesive. The results look exceptionally natural, concealing and correcting many common tooth imperfections such as chips, cracks, gaps, and stains. Our DURAthin® porcelain veneers give our patients a way to rejuvenate the appearance of their smiles with minimal, if any, discomfort.

Dr. Cross has done such a fabulous job in the 8+ years I’ve been his patient, it leaves him with very little work to do on me these past few years. I appreciate how he embraces and has mastered cutting-edge technology. It’s also comforting that he remembers minor details about the condition of my teeth without even having to refer to my chart. The girls at the front desk have an equally impressive memory and are so sweet and friendly.
