New York City Porcelain Veneers

Are you embarrassed to smile because of problems with your teeth? If you want to transform your smile quickly and easily, then porcelain veneers might be the solution to fit your needs. Veneers can be used to improve all aspects of your smile: the size, color, length, and shape of your teeth. It is possible to upgrade your appearance and feel confident about your smile, without the need to undergo extensive dental treatments.

Experienced Cosmetic Dentist in New York City

Mal Braverman DMD FADFE’s ceramist is an experienced technician who works on the fabrication of your porcelain veneers. He is the inventor of the opacious porcelain veneer, which is the process of hand-painting and glazing to create the best appearance for each patient. A high level of attention to detail makes the veneers created by Dr. Braverman’s the best in the industry.

Why choose veneers?

This cosmetic dental service can be used to rejuvenate your full smile to correct common aesthetic issues such as:

  • Misshapen teeth
  • Discoloration
  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Worn or short teeth
  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Misalignment

When the veneers are placed, they help to strengthen weak teeth and protect the overall tooth structure. Many people find that they feel happier, healthier, and more confident about their appearance after this treatment.

Direct vs Indirect Veneers

Two types of veneers are common in the dental industry: direct and indirect.

Direct veneers are created using plastic or composite material, and they can be completed in a single visit. On the other hand, indirect veneers are placed in two visits because a dental laboratory is required for the fabrication of the veneers. These indirect veneers are created using either porcelain material or composite material.
Our experienced team has found that patients can maximize long-term benefits with porcelain material, custom-designed as indirect veneers. We can upgrade your smile in a few short visits, making it a simple and effective solution to improve the appearance of your teeth.


The second appointment happens after your treatment plan has been developed. Now, it’s time to prepare your teeth for veneers. A minimal amount of enamel will need to be removed from the front surface of each tooth. A local anesthetic is used, and the teeth are reduced by approximately 0.5 mm – 2.0 mm. An impression of the teeth in this state is taken and sent to a dental laboratory for fabrication of the veneers. Finally, the appointment will end with the placement of temporary veneers if needed, depending on the amount of reduction necessary. After this visit, and before the placement of the final restoration, some people experience a bit of tooth sensitivity to cold and hot.


Porcelain veneers are quite durable and usually last about 15 years before they need to be replaced. However, with proper maintenance and care, it is possible for them to last longer. Porcelain veneers are preferred over composite materials because they reflect light, resist staining, and are among most natural looking and strongest restorations available.

Recovery After Veneers

Most people don’t require anesthesia for veneers, which means that you will be able to return to your normal activities after the appointment is finished. After the veneers are placed, you might experience a small amount of tooth sensitivity, which usually goes away within two weeks. After this adjustment period, your teeth will feel normal and function naturally. It’s amazing to see the positive impact your new smile will have on all areas of your life!

Caring for Your Veneer

The ceramic material used for veneers is durable, which means it will hold up against normal wear and tear. But you need to be consistent to maintain regular dental habits and good hygiene. The veneers should be brushed and flossed as normal, and it is suggested that you are consistent with regular dental exams. If you are prone to grinding and clenching, then wearing a nightguard can help to protect your veneers from damage.

Veneers are resistant to staining and other damage, often holding up better natural enamel. But you should still be diligent about avoiding food and drinks that increase the risk of staining. Also, be careful to not chew on hard objects that might damage the veneers, such as hard candy, fingernails, or ice.
