Here are some of the frequently asked questions we hear at our veneer consultations.
What Can Porcelain Veneers Achieve?
Veneers are one of a number of different cosmetic dentistry options available to improve the look of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are a very versatile and customizable option, which can hide a wide variety of dental flaws. Veneers not only allow for the shape, size and color of your teeth to be changed, but also mask the cracks, chips and imperfections in your teeth. We can fix one tooth or create a complete smile makeover with veneers.
What Exactly Are Veneers?
Veneers are ultra-thin laminates (or shells) of tooth-colored medical grade material (which can be either porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material). They are bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance. Porcelain veneers are the gold standard in veneers – they look natural and resist staining for a bright, gorgeous smile. Veneers are made to fit over the front surface of the tooth, and then placed by our cosmetic dentist over your teeth to create a natural-looking layer.
Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy. Because they are very thin and are held in place by a special, strong adhesive, very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Some types of veneers don’t need any preparation at all, and the treatment process is quick.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
Porcelain veneers are capable of lasting 20+ years with proper care. Once fitted, you can live life normally, with the benefit of a new white, perfectly beautiful smile.
Why Do People Get Porcelain Veneers?
Some of the reasons you may want to come to us for porcelain veneers include:
- Change the color of your tooth / teeth
- Improve alignment
- Close small gaps in the teeth
- Change the tooth shape
- Repair chipped and damaged teeth
- Improve appearance of worn teeth
- Create a celebrity-caliber smile
Porcelain veneers offer a less intrusive option than dental crowns or other procedures to change your smile’s appearance.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost in NYC?
As a porcelain veneers specialty practice, and due to the volume of treatments we perform each year, we have ensured the cost of our porcelain veneer treatments is very competitive compared to other expert cosmetic dentists in New York City. Although we could charge more for our expertise, we want to ensure all our patients have access to their best smile.
How White are Veneers?
We can match your porcelain veneers to the natural shade of your teeth but we also create the desired shade of white for all your teeth. Our cosmetic dentists can combine teeth whitening with new veneers to create the shade of white you prefer.
