Reduced Tooth Sensitivity

For people with tooth sensitivity, eating an ice cream cone or enjoying a hot chocolate is nearly impossible. Wincing in pain with every bite and sip is no way to live. In most cases, tooth sensitivity is caused by thin enamel, which may have been worn away due to heavy brushing, tooth decay, tooth grinding, a receding gum line, or even the frequent consumption of acidic foods and drinks. Whatever the case may be, finding a solution is an essential step in improving your quality of life.

Tooth Sensitivity Treatment Options

Dentists are accustomed to treating tooth sensitivity issues and typically do so by getting to the cause of the problem. When possible, conservative and straightforward treatments provide an adequate solution. For example, sometimes the answer may be as simple as replacing an old filling or prescribing fluoride treatments to strengthen the enamel. For many, desensitizing toothpaste are also an effective way of blocking the nerve endings exposed by worn enamel.

However, some people – those who undergo smile makeovers – find that decreased tooth sensitivity can be a welcome side effect of veneers. The reason for this is the wafer-thin shell that surrounds the front of the tooth and serves as a barrier between sensitive nerve endings and external stimuli. Though sensitivity may temporarily increase for some patients in the initial days following veneer placement, patients with pre-existing tooth pain may find welcome relief once the veneers are in place.

What are Veneers?

Veneers are custom-made in a dental laboratory to fit the surface of the teeth. They are hard, thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth, usually to transform tooth aesthetics. Veneers can be used to cover chipped or stained teeth, as well as change the size and shape of teeth that are short, jagged, or unevenly spaced. Usually, these types of restorations are designed to be permanent, with most lasting up to 10 to 15 years or more before needing to be replaced.

Are Veneers Right for You?

Veneers are typically indicated for cosmetic purposes rather than for the treatment of chronic tooth pain. However, the decision to get veneers and the reasons for getting them are between you and your dentist. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth and are also coping with chronic tooth sensitivity, it may be time to talk to your dentist about veneers. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation and find out more about your treatment options. We look forward to serving you soon.
