About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can restore teeth that are chipped, cracked, or stained to their original beauty and luster. Cosmetic and general dentist, Dr. Victoria Veytsman, also uses veneers to fill in small gaps and make slight position changes. Dr. Victoria Veytsman prefers to use high-quality materials for porcelain veneers that are custom-created to fit the front surface of the patient's teeth for a natural-looking improvement. Veneers are made to be translucent like natural teeth so that light passes through them, which helps them to blend in better with the patient's own teeth. In addition to a full set of veneers, Dr. Veytsman can apply partial veneers on one or more teeth at her dental office, Cosmetic Dental Studios in Midtown East Manhattan, to help her patients achieve a beautiful, more radiant smile.

"The perfect dentist!!!! – For 18 years I wore a retainer with a fake tooth on it because I was scared of the dentist, I had not gone to the dentist for a cleaning in over 6 years, and I used to get my cavities taken care of as a kid without novacaine because I was scared of the needles. Dr. Veytsman changed all of this, she completely ended my fear of needles and the dentist in general. I now look forward to my visits to Dr. Veytsman and leaving with a clean good looking smile. Because of Dr. Veytsman, I have zero cavities, clean teeth and a gorgeous set of porcelain veneers in place of my retainer with the fake tooth. I would highly recommend Dr, Veytsman to anyone one looking for a general dentist, cosmetic dentistry or especially for those who fear the dentist."- A. / Citysearch / Aug 31, 2010

What to Expect
Traditional porcelain veneers require tooth preparation, including filing the teeth to make space for the new veneers. Then, Dr. Veytsman will take an impression of the patient’s upper and lower teeth, which are sent to a dental laboratory. While waiting for their custom veneers, the dentist will cover the patient's teeth with temporary veneers for protection. Once the patient’s custom-made veneers are sent back to the dentist's office (usually in about 2 – 3 weeks), the patient returns to have their porcelain veneers fitted and placed. The patient’s veneers are then easily applied without problems of pain and sensitivity. About as thin as a contact lens, veneers improve the patient’s smile while still looking natural. With proper home care and regular dental exams and cleanings, porcelain veneers should last for about 20 years.
For the first few days, a patient may be more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures because of the removal of the natural enamel, but this should subside within a few days. A week after the veneers are placed, the patient should schedule a follow-up appointment at Dr. Veytsman’s office to make sure the mouth is responding well to the veneers. Due to the material they are made of and since they are easy to polish, the probability of staining veneers is slight to none. It’s still a good idea to brush after consuming foods or drinks that stain the teeth, especially coffee, soda, tea, and red wine. Veneers should be brushed with a non-abrasive toothpaste, flossed, and rinsed with mouthwash just like natural teeth. Patients should be sure to keep up with regular dental appointments so Dr. Veytsman can perform professional maintenance by polishing the veneers with a special, non-abrasive paste to keep them in pristine condition.
The cost can vary when it comes to porcelain veneers. Factors such as the labor and skill going into creating the veneers, the number of teeth that will be treated, and the material used all play a role. Since this is considered a cosmetic treatment, insurance usually doesn’t cover the costs, but in some cases, insurance might cover some of the costs so our office will check before the procedure is performed to determine the patient's coverage.
