What Are Veneers?

monarch-floral 1

Dental veneers are thin shells of medical-grade porcelain that are custom designed to fit on the fronts of the teeth. At Astoria Dental Group serving Long Island City and all of Queens, NY, we use high-quality porcelain, which beautifully mimics the translucency of natural tooth enamel.

Our dentists take a comprehensive approach to designing custom porcelain veneers. We address the imperfections you want to hide, and we also consider how the veneer design can enhance your facial profile. Natural-looking symmetry is the hallmark of a beautiful smile.

Are You Ready for a New Smile?

Veneers Remain The Popular Solution To Many Dental Flaws
While there are many cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve your smile, people often turn to porcelain veneers to mask common dental problems. Veneers, which can be used on just one tooth or multiple teeth, are adaptable and often faster than alternative treatments. Instead of waiting months or years to transform a slightly crooked smile with Invisalign®, veneers can make your teeth look picture-perfect in a matter of days.
Dental veneers remain popular for a number of reasons:
Porcelain Veneers Are Versatile

Cosmetic solutions often target only one problem at a time. For example, teeth whitening treats stains but does nothing to fix the other problems that detract from your smile, such as misalignment or misshapen teeth. This is where porcelain veneers excel. Since a veneer covers the front of a tooth, it can mask multiple flaws in one step.

We offer the revolutionary FirstFit veneers, which can transform your smile in as little as two hours. These veneers take advantage of the latest in digital technology to offer fast, affordable, and predictable solutions to less-than-perfect smiles.

Super-Thin but Incredibly Strong

Don't be fooled by how thin a dental veneer looks. Made from high-quality porcelain, they are incredibly strong and resistant to chips and stains. Above all, they are durable. They can stand up to years of use and still look beautiful, which is why dental veneers remain a sought-after cosmetic dentistry treatment. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for 15 years or longer.

Traditional Veneers vs. No-Prep Lumineers

monarch-floral 1 (1)
Our cosmetic dentists offer traditional dental veneers and Lumineers®. Both are suitable for covering a wide range of flaws while delivering natural-looking results.
Both types of veneers are crafted from durable porcelain that is color-matched to your desired shade. Porcelain is stain-resistant and simple to maintain, which means you can care for your veneers and Lumineers in the same way as natural teeth.
But while both types of veneers are similar, there are important differences you will want to consider. During your consultation, our cosmetic dentists will help you decide which option best meets your needs, budget, and goals.

Traditional Porcelain Veneers

Traditional porcelain veneers require a small amount of tooth enamel to be removed. This helps the veneers sit flush with your natural tooth structure without appearing bulky. However, this step means there is no “turning back” once enamel has been removed from your teeth. You will always need to maintain a restoration on the tooth to protect it. Traditional porcelain veneers are thicker, which makes them better at hiding flaws of the underlying tooth. Traditional veneers tend to cost a little more than Lumineers.

Lumineers are not just thin like veneers, they are ultra-thin. This means you won’t need to have any enamel removed to get Lumineers. If you think you’ll change your mind about veneers, you can relax knowing that Lumineers can be removed and won’t need to be replaced. However, since Lumineers are so thin, they are less effective at hiding flaws. Lumineer candidates tend to need only minimal aesthetic changes, or changes that require increasing the size of a tooth. Lumineers tend to cost a little less than traditional veneers.

Our FirstFit Method is Transforming The World Of Veneers

monarch-floral 1
Traditional porcelain veneers take weeks to complete, from preparing the teeth to getting your veneers back from a dental lab. In between prep and placement, you are forced to wear temporary veneers, which can sometimes be uncomfortable.
Now imagine walking in for your first veneers appointment and walking out on the same day with a new smile. That is the FirstFit difference.
FirstFit veneers at Astoria Dental Group shrinks the treatment timeline to just a few hours. Using high-end digital imaging systems at our on-site dental lab, we can digitally plan your case and then use 3D printing to prepare a tray of veneers with a perfect fit. The procedure is less invasive than traditional veneers since our surgical guides limit how much enamel is removed.
While not suitable in every case, FirstFit dental veneers can be used to improve the color, size, alignment, and spacing of a tooth. The key benefits of FirstFit include:

Why We Use Porcelain To Craft Dental Veneers

original (1) 2 (1)
Veneers are an incredibly popular cosmetic dentistry treatment, and they can be created from a variety of materials, including composite resin and porcelain. At our practice in Queens, we prefer porcelain veneers to resin veneers for their:

Natural Appearance

Composite resin veneers can give you great cosmetic results, but they lack the lifelike look that porcelain veneers provide. While composite veneers can also be matched to the shade of your teeth, they often develop a dull, artificial look over time. Porcelain veneers mimic the light-reflecting qualities of natural enamel. When color-matched to your smile, porcelain veneers are virtually indistinguishable from real teeth.
Longer Lifespan
Porcelain is much more durable than composite resin. It also has greater stain resistance. Composite resin is a porous material, which means it can become discolored more easily. Porcelain can remain bright and beautiful even when exposed to dark foods and liquids. While composite resin veneers last for five to seven years on average, you can expect your porcelain veneers to last 15 years or longer with proper care.
