▼Does getting porcelain veneers hurt?
No, receiving porcelain veneers is a virtually painless process! Our dentist in Ithaca administers a local anesthetic before prepping your teeth and placing your veneers to ensure comfortable placement.
You may feel some mild soreness when your anesthetic wears off after your procedure. However, any discomfort should dissipate within a few hours and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
▼How long do porcelain veneers last?
With proper maintenance and care, porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years before needing to be replaced. Taking care of your new smile is as easy as brushing and flossing twice a day along with visiting your dentist twice a year for cleanings and exams.
▼What if a veneer falls off or gets damaged?
If your veneer falls off or becomes damaged, do not attempt to fix or reattach it yourself. Call our Ithaca, NY dental office immediately at 607-272-1874 to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. At your appointment, Dr. Ambis will assess the damage and recommend reattachment or having a new veneer crafted.
