Transform Your Smile with Veneers.

At Dr. Stuart Katz and Associates, we specialize in enhancing smiles with custom porcelain veneers. Our experienced team combines artistry and precision to create natural-looking veneers that can transform your smile. Whether you’re looking to correct chips, stains, gaps, or misalignments, porcelain veneers offer a versatile solution for achieving the smile of your dreams.


Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted from porcelain or composite resin material. They are designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can be an excellent option for addressing various cosmetic concerns, including discoloration, chips, cracks, gaps, and minor misalignments. During the veneer procedure, a small amount of enamel is typically removed from the tooth to accommodate the veneer, ensuring a natural fit and appearance. Veneers are known for their durability and resistance to staining, providing long-lasting results for a confident smile.

Porcelain veneers offer several advantages for enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. They provide a natural-looking appearance that closely resembles natural teeth, with customizable color and shape options to achieve the desired outcome. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, making them an ideal choice for maintaining a bright, white smile. Additionally, veneers are durable and can withstand normal biting and chewing forces, providing lasting results for years to come. With porcelain veneers, you can enjoy a beautiful, confident smile that enhances your overall appearance and self-confidence.

The veneer procedure typically involves several steps to achieve optimal results. Initially, a consultation with your dentist is conducted to assess your oral health and discuss your smile goals. During the preparation phase, a small amount of enamel is removed from the front surface of the tooth to make room for the veneer. Impressions of your teeth are then taken to create custom-made veneers that fit seamlessly over the prepared teeth. Once the veneers are fabricated, they are bonded to the teeth using a special adhesive and cured with a light to ensure a secure fit. After placement, any final adjustments are made to ensure proper fit and bite alignment. With proper care and maintenance, veneers can provide a long-lasting solution for enhancing your smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Explore commonly asked questions about veneers below.

Veneers are thin shells that cover only the front surface of the teeth, primarily used for cosmetic enhancement. Crowns, on the other hand, encase the entire tooth, providing more extensive coverage and support for damaged or weakened teeth.

While veneers are considered a permanent cosmetic solution, they may need to be replaced over time due to wear and tear or changes in oral health. With proper care and maintenance, veneers can last for many years.

Veneers can improve the appearance of slightly crooked or misaligned teeth, but they may not be suitable for more severe cases. In such instances, orthodontic treatment may be recommended to correct the alignment of the teeth before considering veneers.

Veneers do not require any special care beyond regular oral hygiene practices, such as brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups. Avoiding habits like biting hard objects and chewing on ice can help prolong the lifespan of your veneers.

Unlike natural teeth, veneers cannot be whitened with traditional teeth whitening methods. However, maintaining good oral hygiene and avoiding staining foods and beverages can help prevent discoloration and preserve the appearance of your veneers.

The veneers process typically involves two to three appointments. During the initial consultation, your dentist will assess your smile and discuss your goals. Then, impressions of your teeth will be taken, and the veneers will be custom-made in a dental laboratory. Finally, the veneers will be bonded to your teeth during a follow-up appointment.

While the process of getting veneers is not reversible, the removal of veneers is possible. However, removing veneers may require some tooth structure to be altered, and the natural teeth may be more susceptible to sensitivity or damage after removal.
