Choose Porcelain Veneers to Cover Smile Imperfections

May 29, 2017

Let’s face it, an unattractive smile hurts more than just your self-confidence. Since the appearance of your smile plays a role in how people view you, research shows an unattractive smile can limit career prospects. As a result, repairing your smile isn’t just important to your confidence, but your potential to succeed in certain career paths. Thankfully, cosmetic dentistry procedures allow you to hide cosmetic flaws for a perfect new smile. With porcelain veneers in the Upper East Side, we’ll hide the blemishes hurting the appearance of your smile to give you a brighter smile.


Porcelain veneers are false fronts that are bonded to the front side of the teeth. Essentially, it’s a very thin shell that’s placed on the tooth to enhance the tooth’s appearance. Since the false fronts are made of porcelain, they are thinner than other dental veneers, allowing less of the natural tooth to be removed during the bonding process. In addition, porcelain reflects light just as enamel reflects light, creating a naturally younger looking smile.

As a cosmetic dentist in the Upper East Side, we’re able to use porcelain veneers to hide a number of cosmetic flaws to give you a more attractive smile. Some of the issues veneers can be used to correct include:

  • Dark tooth discoloration
  • Chips and cracks
  • Misshaped teeth
  • Small gaps and overcrowding
  • Abnormally shaped teeth
  • Teeth length


To correct your smile with porcelain veneers, it involves a very simple procedure. We will first need to conduct an initial consultation to evaluate your oral health to ensure you’re a candidate for veneers. Then, we create a customized treatment plan to begin the process. To receive your veneers, we will first clean your teeth and prepare them for bonding. Preparation involves etching the front side of the teeth. By removing a very small amount of enamel, there will be a more secure bond, allowing the veneers to last longer.

Once your permanent veneers have been created to meet your individual specifications, we bond the veneers to the teeth. We will then make the final adjustments to ensure they look beautiful and function great. The simple and noninvasive procedure will instantly transform your smile.

With the right care, your porcelain veneers will last up to 15 years. You’ll simply care for the veneers as you care for your natural teeth with daily brushing and flossing. You’ll also need to keep your regular dental visits and checkups so we can monitor the veneers for signs of damage. To reduce the occurrence of potential damage, avoid eating extremely hard foods, don’t use your teeth as tools, and maintain proper oral care.


If you’re ready to give your confidence and professional life a boost, transform your smile with porcelain veneers in the Upper East Side. We’ll give you an amazing new smile for wonderful first impressions. Call our office today at (347) 759-0344 to schedule a consultation.
