Cosmetic flaws can leave you feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your smile.
Porcelain veneers are a versatile solution that can address many dental problems.
Learn how Dr. Michael Feldstein and the team at Jewel Dental Associates in Flushing, NY, can transform your smile.
How Porcelain Veneers Work Covering the Basics
Ultra-Thin Porcelain Shells
Dental veneers are ultra-thin shells of strong porcelain that fit over the front of a tooth. A little bit of enamel is removed to produce a seamless and snug fit.
Think of a dental veneer as a mask for a tooth. When a veneer is in place, it covers up dental imperfections, helping your tooth look naturally flawless and perfect.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Veneers?
Self-Conscious About Their AppearanceIf you have cosmetic flaws that affect the look of your smile, you probably want to make a positive change. Veneers can transform teeth that are discolored, damaged, or otherwise imperfect.
Sufficient Tooth EnamelA small amount of enamel is removed to accommodate a porcelain veneer. Patients need to have enough healthy enamel on their tooth so the veneer can be safely and seamlessly placed.
Good Overall Dental HealthPatients should have generally healthy teeth and not suffer from cavities, gum disease, teeth grinding (bruxism), or other issues. Problems must be resolved before undergoing cosmetic care.
Commitment to Lasting ChangeAfter getting veneers, it's important that patients take aftercare seriously. That means good hygiene, regular dentist visits, and following aftercare instructions to ensure their veneers last for years.

How Long Will My Veneers Last?
On average, dental veneers can last up to 15 years with proper care. The team at our Flushing office can check your veneers if they've been chipped or cracked and recommend replacement if necessary.
Signs Your Veneers Need to Be Replaced
While our dentists will catch signs of worn down dental veneers during regular cleaning and appointments, there are a few warning signs that you can be on the look out for between checkups. Some of the most common signs that your veneers have to be replaced include:
- Visible chips or cracks on the veneer
- The veneer seems to be lifted from the tooth surface
- Discoloration to the veneer material
- Changes in the brightness or shininess of the veneer
Additional Issues to Note
In addition to the above, you should get in touch with our practice if your tooth with a veneer develops pain or sensitivity or if gum recession occurs around the tooth with a veneer. This could be signs of tooth decay beneath the dental veneer or other health issues that require professional attention.

FAQs Common Questions Our New York Dentist Hears
How Many Veneers Should I Get?
Dr. Feldstein will work closely with you to understand what you don't like about your smile and what your goals are. By understanding your concerns, he can determine if you need just one veneer or a full set to create the balance and symmetry that are the hallmarks of a beautiful smile.
How Do I Get Veneers to Match My Other Teeth?
Dr. Feldstein takes great care during the planning process to ensure your veneers not only camouflage problems but also blend in with your teeth to create a natural, symmetrical smile. In addition to being skilled in the use of advanced technology, he has years of hands-on experience in planning and placing veneers. He takes into account the size, shape, and color of your teeth so your smile will look completely natural.
Are Veneers Permanent?
Because a small amount of enamel needs to be removed from your teeth, the procedure to get porcelain veneers is not reversible. Just like any dental restoration, a veneer can break or fall off. If a veneer is damaged, you will have to replace it with a new one to avoid complications.
What's the Difference Between a Veneer and a Crown?
While dental crowns are typically used to repair damaged or decayed teeth, they can also be used cosmetically to improve a tooth that is small or misshapen. Unlike a veneer, which is a thin shell placed on the front of a tooth, a crown covers a tooth on all sides like a cap. Dr. Feldstein can help determine whether crowns or veneers are the best solution in your situation.
