Dental Veneers


Teeth that have been subjected to years of wear and tear can undermine your self-confidence and happiness, wreaking havoc on both your personal and professional life. Fortunately, you no longer have to deal with the unsightly appearance of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry can treat a wide range of dental problems, restoring your smile and enhancing your overall quality of life. Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Shalman, offers exceptional patient-centered care and uses dental veneers to create perfect smiles.

What Is Dental Veneer?

A dental veneer is a thin porcelain or composite resin covering bound to the front of imperfect teeth to improve their appearance. The custom-made shells often play an integral role in a smile makeover. They’re also a more long-term solution to teeth discoloration than teeth whitening or other methods.

If you’ve tried other procedures to improve your smile without success, it’s time to consult Dr. Alex Shalman at his boutique dental office. Dr. Shalman is nicknamed “The Artist of the Smile” and is an expert in oral health and smile makeovers. He pays attention to detail and cares for your overall health. Dr. Shalman first assesses the extent of the damage to your teeth. Then he can determine if you’re a good candidate for dental veneers. He specializes in cosmetic dentistry in New York City, where he serves families in the West Village, East Village, Chelsea, and the surrounding Lower Manhattan neighborhoods. 

How Do Dental Veneers Work?

A dental veneer restores your smile by covering the damaged part of your enamel. In most cases, no other dental approach can effectively correct stained or discolored enamel. When your dentist creates veneers for your teeth, they ensure that they fit and look like the rest of your teeth. Dental veneers are a permanent solution.

The procedure used to place them in your mouth depends on the type of custom veneers your dentist recommends, such as:

Porcelain veneers. These are lab-made porcelain coverings. They are made-to-measure. Your dentist removes a small amount of your front tooth enamel and forms a mold to create an impression for the area to be covered. The mold goes to a lab where we construct the custom porcelain veneer. Dr. Shalman tests it on your affected tooth to ensure it looks natural among your other teeth before cementing it in place.

Composite veneers. Resin-based composite prepless veneers are prepared by your dentist and fixed directly onto the affected tooth. The dentist first cleans, reshapes, and thoroughly prepares the tooth before bonding and sculpting the color-matched composite material onto it. He then adjusts the shape to achieve the most natural-looking veneer. A special light dries the composite material, and the dentist smooths and polishes it to look like a natural tooth.

No-Prep Veneers.A no-prep veneer is only 0.2 mm in thickness, which makes all the difference in preserving your tooth structure. Your dentist creates an impression of the teeth that will be veneered. The specialist then sends the impression to the dental lab along with all the other information like the shade of porcelain required, so your veneers can be made. After that, your dentist simply fits and adjusts your veneers and bonds them onto your teeth when you are happy with their appearance.

Each type of veneer is slightly different, and your choice may be influenced by your budget, the number of veneers required, and the issues you wish to conceal. Some people may only need simple dental bonding and composite veneers, which can be completed very quickly. Others are looking for a more comprehensive change in the appearance of their teeth and will benefit more from conventional porcelain veneers or no-prep veneers. Your cosmetic dentist can go over all of your options with you, guiding you to the ideal solution for your specific needs.
