Your New Smile is Just Two Visits Away
Porcelain veneers are a fast and painless way to eliminate imperfections in your smile. If you’re interested in a non-invasive way to change the aesthetics of your smile, they might be the ideal choice for you. Porcelain veneers correct common issues like cracks, chips, gaps, and uneven surfaces.
We can also use veneers to improve the size and shape of your teeth that are worn down or uneven, or to restore stained teeth that are resistant to whitening.
Attaching porcelain veneers is a simple, surgery-free procedure. The best part is that it only takes two short appointments at our Staten Island office for one of our dentists to transform your smile.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells that our Staten Island dentists will secure to the front surfaces of your teeth to give you a smile you’ve dreamt of achieving. Porcelain is a durable material that’s used throughout dental restorations because it’s tooth-colored and reacts to light the same way as your natural smile.
Our veneers are custom-designed to blend with the rest of your smile, creating a complete and confident aesthetic. With the precision and accuracy that our patients have come to expect from our dentists, you can rest assured knowing that your restoration will look natural.
The Porcelain Veneers Process
While your porcelain veneers can be completed in two office visits, the process is better explained in three steps.
Step One — Your Consultation
Before we begin your treatment, you’ll meet with our Staten Island dentists to discuss your treatment options. If you decide that veneers are ideal for your situation, we’ll start the process immediately.
Step Two — Taking Impressions of Your Smile
We’ll make an impression of your smile and send it to our local dental laboratory so that they can design and manufacture your customized porcelain veneers.
Step Three — Attaching Your Veneers
After a week or two, your porcelain veneers will be ready, and you can return to our office for the final appointment. One of our dentists will prepare your teeth by lightly etching them, creating a surface that makes bonding the veneers easier. Next, our Staten Island dentists will secure your veneers using a durable dental adhesive.
Finally, we’ll clean away the excess debris from the procedure. After a swift polish, your new smile will be ready to show off to the world.
Stunning Aesthetics, Restored Self-Esteem
If you have imperfections in your smile that you can’t live with, porcelain veneers are a pain-free, surgery-free solution. No matter which of our cosmetic dentists completes your treatment, you’ll leave our office after two visits with a fully restored smile that you’ll cherish for many years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are porcelain veneers permanent?
Porcelain veneers typically last for 7 to 15 years when they’re properly cared for. If you practice excellent oral hygiene, they may last even longer. To get the most out of your veneers, avoid any habits that can result in damaging your teeth.
The most common ways that patients damage their porcelain veneers are by biting hard foods and grinding their teeth. If you have a tendency to grind your teeth, we can help protect your veneers by fitting you with a customized mouth guard.
Is brushing and flossing the same with porcelain veneers?
Yes! To maintain your porcelain veneers, just brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once a day. It’s also crucial that you visit us at least twice a year for a routine examination and cleaning. No special cleaning products or tools are necessary for veneers.
Who is a candidate for porcelain veneers?
If you’d like a brighter and more beautiful smile, porcelain veneers can help you achieve the appearance you’re looking for. As long as you take care of your veneers after the procedure, most patients with cosmetic issues are good candidates.
However, porcelain veneers generally aren’t a good choice for patients who have extensive tooth decay or grind their teeth — if either of these apply to you, you may want to consider another treatment option.
Is the porcelain veneers process painful?
Getting porcelain veneers is a non-surgical procedure that shouldn’t be painful at all. You may experience some mild discomfort after your veneers are first bonded to your teeth, but this will fade quickly and can be easily managed with over-the-counter medications.
We accept many insurances. Please contact one of our Insurance Coordinators to discuss your dental coverage plan.
