When is Local Anesthesia Needed in Veneer Procedures?
1 September 2023
Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry option that can transform the appearance of teeth, creating a stunning and confident smile. While the procedure itself is minimally invasive, some individuals may experience anxiety or discomfort during the process. This is where local anesthesia comes into play, providing a numbing effect that allows patients to undergo the treatment with ease.
When is Local Anesthesia Used?
Local anesthesia is typically administered during dental veneer procedures in the following situations:
1. Tooth Preparation
The process of preparing the teeth for veneers involves removing a small portion of the enamel to ensure a proper fit. This step can cause mild discomfort, which is alleviated by the application of local anesthesia. It numbs the area and prevents any pain during enamel removal.
2. Tooth Sensitivity
Some individuals have heightened tooth sensitivity, which can make certain dental procedures uncomfortable. Local anesthesia is used to minimize or eliminate any sensitivity during the veneer placement process, ensuring a painless experience.
3. Bonding Process
The bonding of dental veneers to the teeth requires the use of dental cement. Local anesthesia is used to prevent any discomfort or sensitivity when the veneers are securely attached to the teeth.
Benefits of Using Local Anesthesia
Local anesthesia offers several benefits during dental veneer procedures:
- Pain Relief: Local anesthesia numbs the treatment area, ensuring that patients do not experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
- Reduced Anxiety: Knowing that the procedure will be pain-free helps alleviate anxiety and nervousness among patients, creating a more relaxed environment.
- Enhanced Patient Comfort: Patients are more likely to have a positive experience when they are comfortable and pain-free throughout the procedure.
- Smooth Procedure: Dentists can perform the veneer procedure with precision and accuracy when patients are comfortable and cooperative.

What Our Patients Say
Dr Nell is a fantastic dentist. Jolly, reassuring, and extremely knowledgeable. I am sad to be leaving and moving out of the area, as he and his team are outstanding.
Fantastic! Extremely welcoming and very friendly, great advice, very professional, sensible pricing. I’m a new customer and like many perhaps anxious moving to a new practice, but I felt completely at ease and comfortable throughout, it’s refreshing to have ‘old school’ service and logical advice. I can highly recommend these ladies and gents! 😁
Honestly after 10 years of never going to dentist due to fear, im so happy i came here after my sisters recommendation. Helena is amazing, she made me feel at ease, was very patient with me. Finally i can go to dentist without a complete meltdown.Thank you so much for helping me.

Joined this new local dental practice on 10/5/23 and had my 6 monthly checkup with dentist, having previously filled out online health questionnaire & having had my dental history sent from previous practice. It was the most thorough checkup ever. Everyone was very caring & very professional. Very informative Dentist, charming dental nurse and friendly reception staff. Booked hygienist for the following week. Very impressed with my first visit. Its very local to me which is a bonus. Would definitely recommend the practice.Thank you Coniston.
Wonderfull dentist and hygenist services here.. used to come as a kid and after a recent visit with my mother with disability issues I have chosen to get back on their books.. Everyone from front of house through to the doctors has been so pleasant to deal with making what could possibly be something quite stressful nice and simple
