Are Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures Painful?

Are Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures Painful?
Posted on 06/06/2022

A lot of patients not only want to improve their dental health but their dental appearance as well. This is where cosmetic dentistry comes into play. Teeth can stain, chip, or shift, changing the way your smile looks. However, some patients worry that cosmetic dental procedures will hurt. This can cause some patients to ignore cosmetic dental treatment. But do most cosmetic dental procedures hurt? Learn the facts from MaconSmiles, and how we can help you restore your smile.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Many patients avoid visiting the dental office because they’re scared of pain. However, with the right care, you don’t have to worry. Your cosmetic dentist should prioritize your comfort and care. They should do everything possible to ensure that your appointment is stress-free. 
Most cosmetic dental procedures are noninvasive. With others, anesthetics can be used to minimize discomfort. No matter what type of treatment you get, let your provider know that you are worried about pain. 

Which Cosmetic Dental Treatments Are Painful To Get?

Some patients will feel sensitivity to some treatments, including teeth whitening, bondings, and veneers. However, your dentist will usually numb your mouth beforehand. More invasive treatments, such as replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant, can feel more painful. Getting dental implants involves a recovery period where you will feel discomfort. While you shouldn’t feel pain during the procedure itself (because of anesthesia), your mouth will be sore for a couple of days. For treatments like these, your dentist will give you instructions on how to reduce pain, such as getting plenty of rest and taking prescribed or over-the-counter pain medications.
