Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that are permanently sealed to the front of your teeth to mask cosmetic imperfections and instantly improve the appearance of your smile. They’re typically made of porcelain or composite resin, which has a similar color and translucency as your real teeth, giving you a smile that looks both natural and flawless. 

What conditions do veneers treat?

By masking the entire front-facing portion of your smile, veneers effectively cover up any cosmetic flaws you have in your teeth, including:

  • Chips
  • Cracks 
  • Stains that haven’t responded to whitening treatments
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Crooked or overlapping teeth

Veneers are also occasionally used for non-cosmetic purposes as well, like reinforcing a damaged tooth to protect it from further harm.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers are incredibly popular because of how minimally invasive their procedure is compared to how drastically they improve your smile. 

Your veneers only require you to shave off a tiny amount of enamel from your teeth (equivalent to the thickness of the veneer, which is very thin), but they can dramatically transform the appearance of your smile. 

Veneers are also not irritating to your gums, feel and look very natural in your smile, and are resistant to staining.

What’s the process for getting veneers?

Your dentist at Aesthetic Dentistry of Manhattan installs your veneers in just a few simple and easy office visits.

During your first visit, you and your dentist pick a size, shape, color for your veneers that best fits in with your natural smile and enhances your facial features. 

Your dentist then prepares the front of your teeth by shaving off a thin layer of enamel, and takes an impression of your smile. 

He sends that impression to a master ceramicist that fabricates your veneers to fit in seamlessly with the rest of your natural teeth, and fits you with a set of temporary veneers to wear while you wait for your permanent ones to come back from the lab.

When your permanent veneers are ready, you come back to the office to switch them out. Your dentist removes your temporary veneers, places your permanent ones, and checks that the fit and appearance are perfect before sealing them in place with dental cement.

You leave the office with a stunning new smile that you’ll be proud to share with the world.
