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.
Porcelain Veneers Reviews
"I have been visiting Dr. Veytsman for the last year and half. Each experience has been swift and painless. I recently went to her beautiful new office on Madison Avenue. She did a wonderful job in replacing two of my veneers. I feel new?"- K. / Citysearch / Sep 09, 2010
"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."- Google User / Google / Nov 18, 2010
"My wife referred me to Dr. Veytsman and I don't remember the last time I felt this well taken care of at a doctors office--if ever. The level of empathy and compassion is truly unique. My wife had her smile enhanced with veneers before our wedding last year and still can't stop smiling. I had a crown started this week because I chipped my back tooth. Dr. Veytsman gets my absolute highest recommendation not only for skill but for treating my wife and I like people first, before patients, and for practicing the human side of medicine. 10 stars."- M.V. / ZocDoc / Jun 09, 2012
"Victoria and her team are extremely professional and caring! In my case, there were several options I could choose from (veneers, invisalign, etc) and Victoria laid out the pros/cons of each. She was fair and not pushy towards the most expensive option (as most dentists are). I ended going with the affordable option and could not be happier - top notch work, my teeth look AWESOME. Another note to add - her supporting team is GREAT. Extremely responsive and personable. I've never waited longer than 5 min in the waiting room for any of my several appointments. Looking forward to working with Victoria on any future dental work!"- C.V. / Yelp / Jun 25, 2014
"I've always been scared about going to the dentist...not sure if it's the treatment or the cost, but I have to say I've never been more impressed by an office than here with Dr. Veytsman and her team. Dr. Veytsman really makes you feel at ease about the procedure and I couldn't be happier with the results. I'm able to email all my questions and always feel as if the entire team has my best interest at heart. It took a few appointments and a financial commitment for me, but it truly was well worth it. Whether you're looking to do Invisalign, veneers, fillings, crowns or bondings, you HAVE to come here. It's a one of a kind experience - difficult to find anywhere much less NYC!"- C.P. / Yelp / Jan 06, 2015
What should I expect with porcelain veneers?
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.
Am I a candidate for porcelain veneers?
Just about anyone who wants a more permanent solution for a whiter, brighter, and more beautiful smile is a candidate to get porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are a great choice for women and men who:
- Have a healthy amount of tooth enamel
- Have good overall oral health
- Have stained or discolored teeth
- Have chipped, cracked, or uneven teeth
- Have multiple cosmetic issues
What is the recovery like after receiving porcelain veneers?
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.
Porcelain Veneers FAQ
Will insurance cover porcelain veneers?
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. Our office will check before the procedure is performed to determine the patient's coverage.
How do I care for my porcelain veneers?
Caring for your veneers is incredibly easy. In fact, all you need to do is treat them as if they are real teeth. Regular brushing and flossing twice a day will help them to avoid stains and stay perfectly white.
Are porcelain veneers permanent?
While they are not technically permanent, porcelain veneers can be expected to last for decades, with many of our patients never needing a replacement. It is important to note, however, that this procedure is irreversible.
