Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, porcelain shells that cover the fronts of your teeth. Dr. Lembo custom designs and fabricates veneers to fit your teeth precisely. He’s specially trained in CAD-CAM dental technology and crafts your veneers in the office to create the smile you’ve always wanted.

Why would I need veneers?

Dr. Lembo recommends veneers to correct dental imperfections when your teeth are:

  • Gapped
  • Crowded
  • Severely discolored
  • Chipped
  • Unevenly shaped or sized

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers are an effective and minimally invasive method to improve your smile. Dr. Lembo custom-tints your veneers to the exact shade you choose.

If you have tooth enamel that’s thin or damaged, veneers protect your teeth. They’re quick and easy for Dr. Lembo or another dentist at Belmont Dental Associates to install and, with proper care, last for up to 10 years.

How are veneers installed?

Unlike many dental offices, Dr. Lembo installs veneers during a single visit. He begins the installation process by removing a thin layer of tooth enamel. This process allows your veneer to rest against your teeth for a smooth fit, that is, there’s no variation with your other teeth.

Dr. Lembo uses digital imaging technology to take impressions of your teeth and then uses those impressions to craft your veneers to fit your mouth precisely. When your veneers are ready, that same day, Dr. Lembo fits them to your teeth and checks your bite and smile before permanently bonding the porcelain shells.

How should I take care of my veneers?

Dr. Lembo provides instructions and product recommendations to take care of your new veneers. These shells are resistant to staining and decay, but you still need to brush for two minutes at least twice per day and floss at once per day. You should also attend your biannual dental exams; then, your dentist at Belmont Dental Associates can monitor your teeth for signs of decay.
