How Many Veneers Do I Need?
Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
Sufficient Tooth Enamel
Dr. Mormino will need to remove a thin layer of surface enamel before placing dental veneers. For this reason, patients need a sufficient amount of tooth structure to support the restorations.
While porcelain is a very durable restorative material, patients with bruxism, also known as tooth grinding, can fracture their dental veneers. We may recommend an alternative form of treatment, or an oral appliance (such as a mouth guard) to protect the teeth.
We Can Create Dental Veneers In Our On-Site Dental Laboratory
Our Staten Island, NY, office is one of the rare dental practices that has its own on-site dental lab. This allows us to complete various restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments under a single roof.
Collaborating with Lab Technicians
Dr. Mormino works closely with the lab technicians to achieve optimal results. This ensures that the restorations are the right color, and that they fit properly once completed.
Adjustments While You Wait
If a completed veneer does not fit your tooth, we can make chairside adjustments rather than sending the veneer back to an off-site facility. That means fewer delays in placing a completed porcelain veneer.
Did You Know...
Less than 2 percent of dental practices in the United States have their own on-site dental lab. This sets Dr. Mormino's practice apart from other New York dental offices.

Veneers Look Just Like Natural Teeth, Only Better!
How Do I Care for My Veneers?
Practice Good Dental Care
The best way to maintain your cosmetic treatments and the overall health of your smile is to practice good oral hygiene. Brush twice a day and floss daily with a non-abrasive toothpaste. Take extra care around your treated teeth and make sure to attend regular appointments at our Staten Island practice for check-ups and professional cleanings.
While your porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, your natural teeth are not. You can prevent discoloration by staying away from foods and drinks that are known to stain the enamel such as sodas, red wines, and coffee. Dr. Mormino can also provide occasional teeth whitening treatments to touch up your smile and remove any color inconsistencies.
Avoid Excess Pressure
Be mindful of the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth to prevent fracturing or dislodging a veneer. While you shouldn't have to alter your diet while wearing veneers, patients should refrain from chewing ice, biting their nails, and opening packages with their teeth.
LUMINEERS Ultra-Thin Dental Veneers
In addition to dental veneers, our Staten Island, NY, practice also offers LUMINEERS®. These ultra-thin veneers have numerous benefits for patients.
What Are LUMINEERS?
LUMINEERS are a thinner and more translucent variation on standard dental veneers. LUMINEERS can be used to hide chips, cracks, and other issues.
LUMINEERS vs. Dental Veneers
With traditional dental veneers, about half a millimeter of tooth enamel is removed to achieve a proper fit. LUMINEERS are just 0.3 millimeters thick, which means they require less preparation, if any.
Should I Get LUMINEERS?
While LUMINEERS require less prep than porcelain veneers, they may not be suitable for patients with large chips or severe stains. In those cases, slightly thicker dental veneers may be more ideal. During your visit, Dr. Mormino can determine if LUMINEERS or porcelain veneers are better for your needs.
