The short answer is that Veneers are corrective cosmetic coverings that are worn on your teeth. These coverings are a very thin coating that is fitted and cemented over your natural teeth. There are two different types of veneers to choose from if you are considering having your teeth improved. You have the choice of Resin or Porcelain Veneers. Porcelain is a more popular choice for this procedure because the veneers are able to better resist stains, reflect light and mimic other physical characteristics like the surface of your natural teeth. However, each person is different and it is best to ask our dentists which material would work best for you and your veneers.
There are many reasons why someone would want to have their teeth corrected with veneers. If you were looking to brighten your smile, veneers are able to correct the discoloration of your teeth. Veneers are a safe and a longer lasting option for teeth whitening than the other procedures available. Color is not the only thing veneers can fix. Teeth that are worn down, chipped, cracked, crooked, unevenly spaced (gaps) or an uneven shape; veneers can be used to cosmetically correct this malformation.
Dental Veneers are quite simple. They act as a permanent covering for the front of your teeth. It doesn’t matter if you need one tooth or all of your teeth to be fixed, dental veneers are a great option to correct any problem you might have with your smile. After consulting with your dentist and deciding what are the best options for you as a patient, veneers are matched to your teeth by color, size, and shape. Veneers are not meant to be removed on a regular basis, they are intended to last a long time and feel like your own natural teeth without any discomfort to your daily routine.
While dental veneers are one of the fastest and easiest cosmetic dentistry procedures in Westchester, it takes a professional to do it correctly. When you come to our dental office, you can expect thin, strong veneers that will fit comfortably over your teeth and match the shades perfectly.Request My Appointment
Dental veneers are custom designed and shaped for each person and require a little more planning than your semi-annual check up. The process consists of three parts. First, you want to set up a consultation with your Westchester Cosmetic Dentist. Together you will decide if installing veneers is the best option. Next, your veneers will need to be custom made, designed and fitted to you and your smile to ensure maximum comfort and satisfaction. Then, you will meet for a third time to have the veneers applied to your teeth. If there are any corrections or adjustments that need to be made; your dentist will make those necessary fixes before the final application onto your teeth.
The application process requires that the veneers be cemented or glued to the enamel of the natural tooth. In order to do this the dentist will use a small tool to make the enamel of your teeth rougher and more adhesive. This rough surface gives a better hold and grip for the cement and will make the fit of the veneer more comfortable and last longer.

Every smile is unique and every person’s teeth are different. That is why there are so many different options for tooth repair and replacement. Veneers are a beneficial choice to those that already have a healthy smile but are looking to improve the sight of their teeth. Other options like dental implants are for patients that have issues with the health of their teeth and gums, or are missing teeth entirely. Veneers are not meant to replace your teeth, they are meant to cosmetically alter the tooth’s appearance and to make the smile prettier and brighter than ever before. Braces, dental bridges, and retainers are all valid options for fixing gaps in your smile, but they can take years to show real improvement. They are also a very expensive process. Teeth whitening sessions, whitening strips, and other processes for whitening your teeth are also valid options, but they too can cost lots of money and time before you can see much improvement.To top it off, veneers are resistant to staining, dental decay, and even normal wear and tear, keeping your smile perfect. Modern veneers are even designed to flex slightly with the natural teeth, allowing them to last for as long as 10 years.
