Dramatically Enhance the Appearance of Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are thin, durable shells that are attached to the front of teeth to cover up a range of cosmetic imperfections. Dentistry at the Heights offers both traditional and minimum-prep porcelain veneers to help patients achieve gorgeous-looking smiles.
Depending on your unique needs and goals, we can use our innovative CEREC® machine (chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics) to create your porcelain veneers here at our Brooklyn Heights, NY, practice or have them created at an advanced dental laboratory. To learn more about porcelain veneers, schedule an appointment today.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
A porcelain veneer treatment can provide a diverse range of benefits, making it one of the most versatile cosmetic procedures available. Because it complements the effects of many other cosmetic treatments, patients can opt for veneers as part of a larger smile makeover or as an individual service. Most notably, porcelain veneers can:
- Hide noticeable stains, including intrinsic discolorations
- Improve the appearance of small, worn, or unusually shaped teeth
- Conceal small cracks or chips
- Close minor gaps between teeth
- Hide slight misalignment
Our doctors will examine your smile and discuss the benefits of porcelain veneers during a personal consultation to determine if this treatment can best achieve your goals. We proudly feature veneers made of dental-grade porcelain, which closely mimics the look and sheen of natural enamel.
In order to place porcelain veneers, your dentist will first prepare your teeth by removing a small layer of enamel. This will ensure that your veneers remain in proper alignment with surrounding teeth. Next, we will take impressions of the reshaped teeth. These impressions can be uploaded to our in-office CEREC® machine, which will fabricate your veneers in a matter of minutes while you wait. Or, we can send the impressions to a dental lab to have your veneers hand crafted.

We will discuss the advantages of both options during your initial consultation to determine the best approach. The shade of veneers will be closely matched to your smile in order to achieve the most natural-looking results possible. Once your veneers are ready, we will make any necessary adjustments before bonding them securely in place.
Minimum-prep veneers are incredibly thin, which allows them to be placed with little or no teeth reshaping. However, it is important to note that they are not appropriate for all veneers patients. If we determine that minimum-prep veneers can achieve your goals, we will take detailed impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be sent to a specialized lab, where ceramists will design your minimum-prep veneers to blend flawlessly with your smile. During your final appointment, we will ensure a proper fit. Finally, we will bond them in place to instantly enhance the appearance of your smile.
