If you’ve ever wondered how celebrities always flash picture-perfect smiles, even from the most unflattering angles, you may be relieved to know that most of them probably had some dental work done. In fact, a surprising number of these celebrities have been in my chair since 1998 when I started to build my dental practice as a well-known celebrity dentist in NYC. 

And I’m now offering my affordable porcelain veneers to you too, which means that a perfect smile
is within your grasp!

Porcelain Veneers 101

As it turns out, my porcelain veneers are so well-known that my business took center stage on Fox 5 New York! As explained in the recent news feature, porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells that are custom-made to fit your teeth. 

The veneers are glued to the front of the tooth to mask discoloration or alter its shape, and they can also be used in place of teeth-whitening procedures in situations where medications, such as tetracycline, render conventional methods useless. 

Veneers last for 15 to 20 years, and their longevity can be boosted by proper oral hygiene practices,

The Procedure

Wondering how it all starts? At VIP Smiles Dentistry, the initial consultation begins with an examination of your mouth to determine whether drilling or other procedures are required. If your teeth are already properly aligned, no shaving is necessary, and you’ll be able to preserve your teeth’s natural

I will then help you decide on the shape, size, and color of the veneers before the request is sent to a dental lab. 

Here’s a hint from me that I share with all my patients: Don’t just go for white! You want something that looks natural with the rest of your face. 

Also, make sure the size is right, or it may affect your speech or your ability to close your mouth properly. If you were in on the King Harris smile makeover controversy (Rapper T.I’s son), then you already know what can happen if you don’t keep those things in mind.

Should you be unsatisfied with any aspect of the veneers before they are glued on, they can be sent back to the lab and remade.

Longevity and Pain Points

Here’s an answer to a question you’re probably asking: Is the porcelain Veneer procedure painful? Well, as a porcelain veneer patient, I can tell you firsthand that porcelain veneers aren’t that painful or uncomfortable to install. 

They’re a one-and-done kind of deal. But as I explained to Fox 5 New York, you do have to keep some financial considerations in mind if you’re thinking of getting veneers. 

Oh, and just because they’re porcelain doesn’t mean you can be any less careful with them! If you want or already have veneers, I caution folks not to engage in any activities that can damage your natural teeth, as such activities can also chip or dislodge your veneers.

Basically, don’t go around chewing ice or trying to crack bottles open with your teeth, and you’ll be fine. You know, just common sense!
