Here are a few tips to help you cope with post-treatment sensitivity:
- Be choosy about what you eat and drink. Try to avoid very hot or very cold items, such as coffee or ice cream. You should also limit your consumption of acidic foods and beverages, like citrus fruits and soda.
- Take a mild pain reliever if necessary. An over the counter pain medicine may reduce any soreness or sensitivity after your treatment.
- Rinse with saltwater. A warm saltwater rinse can reduce swelling and balance the pH levels in the mouth.
If you find that your sensitivity lingers for more than a week or two after you get your veneers, get in touch with your dentist. They may have to double-check how the veneers are bonded onto the teeth.
Although veneers can cause temporarily sensitive teeth in Manchester, most patients have absolutely no regrets about committing to the treatment. If you have questions about porcelain veneers and what to expect with them, your local cosmetic dentist would be happy to talk with you.
