Five Reasons to Consider Veneers for a Dazzling Smile

By: Dr. Victoria Veytsman


Do you have chips, cracks, gaps, or stains that make you feel self-conscious about your smile? Thanks to the help of celebrity dentist Dr. Victoria Veytsman at Cosmetic Dental Studios in New York City, NY you can achieve a dazzling smile quickly. As a cosmetic dentist, she offers smile makeovers to those who are looking to improve how their smile looks. At her Midtown Manhattan office, she can simulate results using her Digital Smile Design (DSD) system that shows how certain smile makeover procedures, such as porcelain veneers, will look on each patient’s unique features.

Who is a candidate for porcelain veneers?

The most ideal candidate for porcelain veneers is someone who wants to feel confident about their smile. Custom porcelain veneers help resolve chips, cracks, breaks, uneven ridges, stains, and even gaps. They are only recommended for people who have healthy teeth and gums, and who don’t clench or grind their teeth. During a dental exam, if any dental issues are detected, they must be resolved before a cosmetic dentistry procedure in NYC can begin.

Why do people get veneers?

Some of the biggest advantages of choosing custom porcelain veneers during a smile makeover include:

  1. No food restrictions: There are not the diet limitations that braces or Invisalign® require.

  2. Fast treatment time: Treatment is completed in just two office visits, unlike other orthodontic treatments in New York City, NY.

  3. More comfortable: Unlike metal braces, there are no metal brackets or wires.

  4. Address many imperfections: Porcelain veneers correct cosmetic issues and gaps, crooked, or misshapen teeth.

  5. Minimal pain: Veneers can result in a celebrity smile with minimal, if any, pain.

How are veneers put on?

During your first visit to our Midtown Manhattan office, Dr. Veytsman will remove some of your natural enamel to make room for your porcelain veneers. Next, she will take impressions of your teeth to custom make them fit your teeth and gums. Temporary veneers are placed on your teeth while your permanent ones are being made.

Once your veneers are ready, your temporary ones are removed, and your permanent veneers are bonded directly to the front of your teeth. She ensures that they fit properly and makes any adjustments when needed. Your mouth may be sore afterward. Mild sensitivity to hot or cold can occur for up to six weeks. At Cosmetic Dental Studios, veneers are a smile makeover procedure that is customized to meet patients’ individual needs. They blend in with the natural teeth seamlessly and can last decades when taken care of properly.

Caring for your veneers

When you care for your veneers, they can last a lifetime. To clean and protect your veneers, you should:

  1. Maintain a regular oral hygiene routine: Brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss at least once. Also, rinse your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash

  2. Avoid teeth grinding or clenching: If you suffer from bruxism, you may want to get a mouth guard, which helps protect both your natural teeth and your new veneers.

  3. Be careful about what you chew on: While veneers are strong, they can chip and break when treated poorly. Never chew on hard materials, such as ice or pens.

  4. Visit the dentist regularly: Routine dental checkups help guarantee that you maintain your dazzling smile. Schedule routine dental cleanings once every six months and dental exams annually to address dental issues quickly.
