    Veneer Questions Ask The Dentist Richard Winter Question:
    Veneers cause Gum Pain: After having porcelain veneers put on my upper front smile teeth, my gums are swollen above my front tooth and the tooth next to it.

    I had the veneers put in 2 months ago and yet my gums are still swollen. Can the swollen gums eventually recede and create more problems? Also when I floss they bleed very easily in the swollen areas. ...Visitor from OR

    After 2 months, gums shouldn't bleed and they should be healthy. They could have cement, impression material or something foreign under the gums. This needs cleaning immediately to prevent irreversible recession.

    The veneers could be too deep under your gums. This would mean that gum surgery and possibly replacing the veneers may be needed.

    Your dentist will try all conservative treatments like mouth washes ie: perioguard, thorough cleaning, good home care and an evaluation of what is under the gum!

    If it doesn't resolve you may need to get a second opinion.
