Broken, stained, or gapped teeth negatively impact the appearance of the smile. When patients visit our dentists at Montefiore Medical Center with complaints of imperfections, our team may encourage them to consider the advantages of placing porcelain veneers.

What is a veneer?

A veneer used in dentistry is a thin shell of ceramic custom-made to bond over the front surface of the tooth to change its appearance. Veneers are used in many areas of dentistry and continue to be a popular choice for long-term repair of the smile. Porcelain veneers are made to match the existing teeth in the smile to ensure a natural appearance. They are made to last many years with proper care, and can make subtle or dramatic changes to the appearance of the teeth.

Why choose porcelain veneers?

There are many different ways for patients to improve their smile when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. At Montefiore Medical Center, we welcome patients into our practice for an evaluation to determine if the porcelain veneer is right for them. Veneers are used for patients who are interested in addressing teeth that are:

• Gapped
• Stained
• Chipped
• Cracked
• Worn
• Unusually shaped
• Misaligned

The veneer is a perfect choice, as it offers a natural-looking solution that will last for many years. Most patients who properly care for their smile and their veneers will enjoy them for ten years or longer. Porcelain veneers are a more desirable choice than composite resin bonding for many patients because of their longevity. Veneers are also stain-resistant, which is the major downfall of dental bonding. While more expensive than composite resin, veneers can still be a better investment in the long run for men and women seeking a more permeant solution to imperfections of the smile.
