Porcelain Veneers Q & A

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that attach to the front surface of your teeth. These tooth-colored shells are made of a durable porcelain and bond directly to the surface of your teeth.

You may be a candidate for porcelain veneers to correct common dental flaws like:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Discoloration
  • Gapped teeth

You can also use porcelain veneers to increase the size of your teeth if your natural ones are too small. The Emery & Scuro DMD, PC team focuses on creating a symmetrical, attractive smile based on your needs.

What can I expect during my consultation for veneers?

The Emery & Scuro DMD, PC providers must first evaluate your oral health and the condition of your teeth. They take X-rays to check for gum disease and cavities before recommending veneers.

If veneers are right for you, your provider removes a small portion of your tooth and enamel in preparation for your veneers. The dental team also takes a mold of your mouth and sends the mold to a dental lab to create your veneers.

At your next appointment, your Emery & Scuro DMD, PC dentist cleans your teeth before applying a dental cement to bond the veneer to your tooth’s front surface. They use a special ultraviolet light to harden the cement.

Immediately after the placement of your veneers, you can eat and resume your other activities without the need for recovery.

How do I care for my porcelain veneers?

You should care for your porcelain veneers just like you do your natural teeth with regular brushing and flossing. Your veneers can last many years if you take the necessary precautions, such as not chewing on hard objects and not using your teeth as a tool to open packages.

If you tend to grind or clench your teeth, your Emery & Scuro DMD, PC provider can recommend a night guard to protect them. You should also wear a mouthguard if you play sports.
