Veneers are a thin shell of porcelain permanently bonded on the facing of teeth to improve position, shade, shape, and overall smile and aesthetic of the mouth. Veneers are a fast and effective way to cover up cosmetic dental concerns and the service is available to patients in both our Briarwood and Great Neck facilities. Candidates for this procedure include patients with tooth gaps, extensive discoloration, alignment issues, and other aesthetic worries.
At Cohen Dental Care, we understand how important your smile is for your physical and mental health. We will take your unique needs into consideration and take a personalized approach to achieve the smile you deserve.
Why choose veneers?
Each individual who opts to receive veneers has a unique situation, and the way we approach treatment reflects that. Chipping is one common issue that veneers can help cover. Whether you’ve been in an accident, played sports just a little too rough, or simply bit down into something hard, tooth chips can leave you with an incomplete smile. Veneers cover those missing pieces, allowing you to get your natural grin back. Veneers can also work to fill in slight gaps and give the appearance of straightening out misaligned teeth. The treatment process allows you to skip more invasive and long-haul orthodontic choices, like braces and retainers, but have similar results in a matter of hours, not years.
We also work with clients who have advanced staining that can’t be fixed with whitening agents alone. This can be the result of genetics or happen after years of poor lifestyle choices, such as bad oral hygiene, avoiding the dentist, smoking, or consuming a lot of staining foods and drinks. Veneers cover up this discoloration and appear realistically bright — kind of like a facelift for your teeth!
One of the great advantages of veneers is how they can be easily customized to fit your lifestyle and current needs. Veneers are cured and bonded to your tooth’s original enamel with a special adhesive. We take time to match veneer shading so it looks as similar as possible to your natural teeth, and our patients value that discreet look and feel. Our attention to detail allows you to have just one natural tooth covered — or to have a fully repaired smile. The choice is up to you, and we’ll happily discuss all your options and review before-and-after images to see what will look best in your mouth.
Once you decide which teeth you would like veneers on, we’ll take into consideration the shape of your mouth, the size of your current teeth, and other factors, then work with a lab to get you the perfect fit and a dream smile. Each veneer is custom-made to fit the individual contours of your teeth, so you won’t have to worry about looking or feeling unnatural with your new smile; in fact, others might not even realize you’ve had dental work done!
When your veneers are in place, you’re set! The quality veneers we use in our clinics are expected to last for more than a decade, and in the meantime, you can stick to your regular routine of brushing, flossing, and coming in for general checkups, then getting back to your busy life with an attractive smile!
