How to Help With Tooth Sensitivity



The 2nd of August is National Ice Cream Sandwich Day. You might be excited to bite into a tasty treat just to hamper the glee with intense sensitivity coming from your teeth. Excessive sensitivity can progress in many ways, including exposure of the tooth roots and the development of cavities.Instead of living with the discomfort, people should schedule appointments at our office to see if porcelain veneers in Orlando, Florida are a viable option.

How Veneers Help

A veneer is a thin porcelain layer that is applied directly to a tooth’s outer surface to cover up the dentin. Veneers can increase the durability and structural strength of the teeth to avoid direct contact with the surface by hot and cold substances.

You will need to arrange an appointment with Dr. Lawrence Duffy  to see if you are a suitable candidate for this procedure. Name* You do need to consider the removal of a small amount of natural enamel so that the veneer does not bulge beyond the rest of the teeth.

When Veneers Do Not Help

Some incidents of teeth sensitivity, porcelain veneers won’t help. Acid reflux is a disorder in which the body regurgitates stomach acid into the esophagus which also contributes to heartburn. Thanks to the high acidity levels reaching the mouth, it can also break off the enamel of teeth.
