Dentistry at The Heights, in the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, offers both traditional and minimum-prep veneers made from top-grade porcelain to help patients achieve gorgeous-looking smiles.
Depending on your unique needs and goals, Dr. Trotter may be able to create your porcelain veneers during one appointment at our Brooklyn Heights, NY, practice with our advanced, innovative CEREC® machine (chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics). Or he can have them created by dental restoration artisans at an advanced dental laboratory.

Dr. Trotter Offers Two Kinds of Veneers: Traditional and Minimal-Prep
The Traditional Veneers Procedure
Can be one or two appointments
A porcelain veneers treatment with Dr. Trotter can help you achieve the gorgeous-looking smile of your dreams.
The Minimum-Prep Veneers Procedure
Minimum-prep veneers cover the same flaws as traditional veneers but are much thinner. This allows them to be placed with little or no teeth reshaping, and most likely, no need for anesthetic injections. Minimum-prep veneers also tend to cost less. However, it is important to note that they are not appropriate for all veneers patients. Dr. Trotter will discuss your options during your consultation. The two-appointment procedure is as follows:
- Detailed digital impressions will be taken of your teeth.
- The impressions will be sent to a specialized dental lab, where ceramists will design your customized, minimum-prep veneers to blend flawlessly with your smile.
- At your next appointment, Dr. Trotter will check for a proper fit, and bond them in place to instantly enhance your smile.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I Qualify for Veneers?
Dr. Trotter will go over your candidacy during your initial exam. As long as you don't have severely crooked teeth, missing teeth, decayed teeth, or gum disease, you should be a good candidate. These issues may need to be treated before veneers can be placed.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
With proper oral care, a traditional veneer can last 10 to 15 years, while a minimum-prep one can last up to around seven years.
Any Diet Restrictions with Veneers?
Not really, but Dr. Trotter may advise you to not bite or chew ice, candy, or other hard, crunchy foods with your front teeth.
