My dentist decided to bond exposed roots on my canines in conjunction with placing veneers on four front teeth.
Since then I have had severe percussion pain and air sensitivity, which I never had before. Would you advise that I insist that the bonding be redone to make sure there is not an issue?
This pain has gone on now for two months following the procedure. ... Visitor from TX
Without the benefit of any diagnostic information, it's difficult to guess what's going on.
It could be one or more of the nerves of the bonded teeth are causing the sensitivity and especially the sensitivity to percussion.
It could also be an issue with the canines, or it may be related to your bite.
I would suggest getting a second opinion and evaluation of any need for root canals.
