Q&A: What should I do if I have severe sensitivity to cold and it is painful to bite down since having six veneers put in?
I recently had my 6 upper teeth fitted with porcelain veneers. Approx. 1 week ago. Since the procedure I am experiencing severe sensitivity to cold and I cannot bite down with these teeth as it is painful. My dentist seems to think that in time this will go away. I am very concerned as I'm worried that I have ruined my teeth. Have you had any other cases that had this kind of response to veneers. Please advise as I am very worried. Thanks in advance for your feedback. Marianne
Hello, It is not unusual to experience sensitivity anytime a bonding procedure is done. Veneers are bonded to the tooth and the sensitivity is ok. It should go away in a few days or weeks. If it continues or gets worse, then have the dentist take a look at it. Sameer Puri DDS
