Pain in the gums and teeth may persist for two to three weeks. Patients may also have tooth sensitivity when eating and drinking hot or cold items. The person's bite sensation may seem different. The patient may also experience some minor changes in speech.
You should never feel pain for two months after cosmetic dentistry treatment. Sensitivity for a few days is common, but what you are experiencing is wrong. In general, dental veneer procedures, including dental anesthesia, don't hurt or cause any pain. You may feel some discomfort or tenderness after the dental veneer process.
These sensations should go away in a few days. If they don't, let your dentist know so they can explore other recovery options. You usually feel some pain after the procedure as you get used to having veneers. The pain also depends on how many veneers you have.
If you only have one or a pair of veneers on your teeth, the pain will often be minimal or no pain. The irritation may be the result of temporary veneers. Or they may become irritated during the preparation process. Whatever the case, the gums should heal without intervention before permanent veneers are placed.
In the meantime, you can rinse with warm salt water as needed during the day. This will help ease discomfort. Also, be careful when brushing your teeth and avoid any toothpaste or mouthwash products that contain alcohol. Sometimes abrasive products increase irritation.
You can also take some ibuprofen to help with inflammation. In most cases, once permanent veneers are placed, the irritation will resolve on its own. If it's just a matter of the cement being trapped there, when your dentist removed it at the last follow-up, that should help it heal. The second opinion dentist can make sure there are no more there.
However, if the problem is in the margins, the porcelain veneers will need to be completely redone. Because it puts your oral health at risk, you have the right to have them repeated for free. However, my recommendation would be to get a refund and have it done by a more experienced cosmetic dentist. While mild gum swelling may occur, as you adjust to your new teeth and bite, the more extreme versions of these aren't normal side effects after the procedure and you should have an exam.
This will cause things to get stuck between the gums and porcelain veneers, leading to inflammation and eventually gum disease and tooth decay. Some of the side effects of veneers can include pain, tenderness, irregular color or shape, and gum problems.
