Veneers are almost paper-thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom fabricated (for color and shape) by a dental laboratory. They are bonded on the front surface of teeth to create an attractive smile.

Veneers can completely reshape your smile. They can often be an alternative to dental crowns and the best option for treating a wide range of dental conditions.

As with most restorative options, porcelain veneers are not forever and may eventually need replacement. However, they are extremely durable and can last many years, providing you with a long-lasting and beautiful smile.


Reasons for porcelain veneers:

  • To create a uniform smile.
  • Other cosmetic improvements.
  • Misshapen teeth.
  • Crooked teeth.
  • Teeth that are too small or large.
  • Severely discolored or stained teeth.
  • Damaged teeth.
  • Uneven or unwanted spaces.

What does getting veneers entail?

Getting veneers in Brooklyn takes two visits to complete, with little local anesthesia needed during the treatment. The teeth are cut by buffing and removing some of the enamel to allow for the thickness of the porcelain. A mold or a 3D scan of the teeth using CAD-CAM technology is taken and a shade will then be chosen by you and your Brooklyn Dentist.


On the second visit, the teeth will be cleaned with adhesive liquids to create a durable bond. Cement is then placed between the porcelain veneer and tooth preparation and a special light beam is used to harden and set the cement.

You will be given home care instructions for porcelain veneers. Proper flossing, brushing, and regular dental visits will increase the longevity of your new porcelain veneers.
