In just two visits to Dr. Benjamin's Manhattan or Brooklyn dental practice, patients can completely transform their smiles with porcelain veneers.
DR. BENJAMIN: Porcelain veneers are porcelain shells that are used to cover teeth, to cover damage that either natural or through the years or where the teeth have maybe stained or chipped or moved. So there is a lot of defects that porcelain veneers can fix.
The number one benefit of porcelain veneers is that it’s very minimally invasive. In other words, you don’t really have to file down too much of the tooth to get a nice porcelain veneer placed. In a crown you have to file down a lot more than a porcelain veneer. With porcelain veneers sometimes we don’t have to touch the tooth at all. It doesn’t take too much time to do it. Within a couple of visits--the first visit we prepare the teeth and take impressions. The second visit usually we have the veneers and put them in. So within two visits, a couple weeks apart, a person can change their smile completely. Ultimately speaking, the cost is very reasonable.
