Sensitivity after putting in permanent veneers
Are you're teeth supposed to hurt after new veneers placed?
It is not uncommon to have discomfort after any dentistry, small fillings, crowns and veneers included. However, in most cases the sensitivity or pain will go away in a few days, or week or so. This is called reversible pulpitis.
Many cosmetic dentists recommend that their patients use Advil every 4-6 hours for three days after the veneers have been placed. It is also very important to return to your dentist a few days after the veneers have been bonded on so that he can check your bite, making sure you aren't hitting harder on any on your teeth.
Sensitivity After Bonding Veneers
Though rare, you can experience some sensitivity following the bonding of porcelain veneers. It will typically subside after a few weeks. It is very common to have some sensitivity the same day that they are placed though. Take a small dose of Advil for the next 24 hours and you should be fine. Good luck.

Mild sensitivity after veneers usually subsides in first 8-12 weeks
Occasionally teeth may be mildly sensitive for the first few weeks after veneers have been prepared and placed. This is just a tooth's response to it being worked on. Typically this is mild and should improve week by week for the first 8 to 12 weeks. However, if a tooth is frequently throbbing or waking the patient up in the middle of the night, this would be considered not normal and would be something the treating doctor should reevaluate.
