New York City Porcelain Veneers

Veneering a tooth means to cover its facial, or front, surface. It is actually very similar to placing acrylic fingernails on top of natural nails. Veneers are used to enhance the shape and color of teeth, as well as to close spaces between teeth. Veneers can also cover up significant stains such as those caused by tetracycline. As we age, wear of the front teeth may affect the aesthetics of our smile. Porcelain veneers may be used to lengthen worn or short teeth and restore the smile of older patients.

Mal Braverman DMD FADFE’s ceramist is the technician that will actually fabricate your porcelain veneers and he invented the opacious porcelain veneer which is hand-painted and glazed . This attention to detail makes Dr. Braverman’s veneers the best and most aesthetically pleasing.

First Step

During the first visit to our New York City office, 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. Depending on the amount of reduction necessary, a temporary veneer may be placed. Between the time of the impression and the placement of the final restoration, a patient may experience slight sensitivity to hot and cold.


Typically, the porcelain veneers should last about 15 years. However, with proper care and maintenance they can last longer. Porcelain veneers resist staining, reflect light, and are among the strongest and most natural looking restorations available.
