Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are custom-designed to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. This cosmetic dentistry treatment is specifically created to conceal the damaged or affected portions of your teeth while providing virtually undetectable and long-lasting results. Additionally, they require no extra maintenance aside from routine brushing, flossing, and regular teeth cleanings. Porcelain dental veneers can be used to improve the appearance of a number of common dental issues, including:
- Chips and cracks
- Gaps and misalignments
- Stains and discolorations
- Worn down and unevenly sized teeth

All of my visits are great with Dr. Marianna Farber. She always goes out of her way to make the whole process – from making the appointment, insurance claims, and the actual dental procedure very comfortable and painless. I just had new veneers put on my front teeth and she did a great job … they look great!
The Porcelain Veneers Procedure
Prior to your procedure, Dr. Farber will evaluate your teeth to ensure porcelain veneers are the most effective dental option for your needs. If this is the case, she will make an impression of your teeth which will be used to custom-design your veneers from a durable porcelain material for a natural look and feel.
After construction, the thin veneer will be fixed to your affected tooth with highly-cohesive oral cement. Your veneer will then be shaded and tinted to match the color of your surrounding teeth for the most aesthetically-pleasing results. Following one final polish, your veneer should resemble your natural teeth and help improve the function of your smile.
Results from porcelain dental veneers are typically long-lasting and can even last several decades.
Porcelain Veneers FAQs
Due to their ability to correct numerous tooth imperfections simultaneously, porcelain veneers have become a staple cosmetic dentistry procedure for patients seeking to rejuvenate the appearance of their smiles. Since veneers are such a popular option for improving the form and function of the teeth, Dr. Marianna Farber has collected some of the most frequently asked questions about this procedure, allowing you to make well-informed decisions about your smile and your oral health.
Am I a good candidate for porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers can be an ideal solution for patients seeking to address a number of cosmetic imperfections at the same time. If you have cracks, chips, stains, discoloration, gaps, spaces, worn or “short” teeth, or even mild tooth misalignment, porcelain veneers can greatly improve the appearance of your smile. Porcelain veneers are often incorporated into a smile makeover for an even more complete rejuvenation.
What is the difference between porcelain veneers and dental crowns?
Porcelain crowns are primarily used to strengthen damaged or decayed teeth. Although porcelain crowns can also improve the appearance of many common cosmetic concerns, they are designed to provide added support for the natural tooth structure for a durable restoration. Porcelain veneers can also provide support for the teeth but are primarily used to achieve superior aesthetic enhancement. Dr. Farber collaborates with high-quality dental labs to help ensure your porcelain veneers look both beautiful and natural.
Should I choose dental bonding or porcelain veneers?
Dental bonding can reshape chipped, cracked, and worn or “short” teeth using a composite resin material. With almost no necessary tooth preparation, dental bonding can usually be completed in a single day. However, porcelain veneers can often correct the same cosmetic and structural imperfections with more durable results. In addition, since each veneer is custom-made to blend seamlessly with your smile, the results of porcelain veneers can often look more natural.
How will my teeth look after the porcelain veneers procedure?
PreNew PreView® has taken some of the guesswork out of cosmetic dentistry. After sending a digital photograph and mold of your teeth to the Jason J. Kim Oral Design New York Center, a custom mockup of your porcelain veneers is manufactured and then sent to our office. During a follow-up visit, Dr. Farber can apply the mockup to your teeth, allowing you to experience the look and feel of porcelain veneers before you choose to undergo the procedure.
How much do porcelain veneers cost?
The exact cost of porcelain veneers will vary from patient to patient and depends upon a number of variables. Factors such as the number of veneers, the location of the affected teeth, the amount of tooth preparation required before the procedure, and laboratory costs can all impact the final price of the treatment. To make this cosmetic dentistry procedure available to as many patients as possible, we offer a number of financing options that can work within your budget.
