Porcelain Veneers
If the appearance of stained, worn, or chipped teeth is affecting your confidence, cosmetic treatment may be the solution. Dr. Joseph Cipriano offers porcelain veneers at our Staten Island, NY, dental practice to help you attain a stunning and radiant smile.


What Are Porcelain Veneers?

A porcelain veneer, also known as a dental veneer, is an incredibly thin shell that a dentist can affix to the tooth's surface. Once bonded, these veneers effectively conceal cosmetic imperfections such as chips, cracks, or stains. Crafted from materials like porcelain, they closely mimic the natural tooth's appearance. Renowned for their lifelike results and the straightforward placement process, porcelain veneers have emerged as a highly sought-after cosmetic treatment at Healthy Smiles of Staten Island.


Benefits of Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are a great way in improving the appearance of your teeth.
They give you a brighter and more even smile. They can be used to treat the following:
Chipped or Broken Teeth
Dental veneers offer a seamless solution for chipped or broken teeth. By concealing imperfections with custom-crafted shells, veneers restore the integrity of damaged teeth, providing both strength and an aesthetically pleasing appearance. Say goodbye to visible chips and hello to a restored, flawless smile.
Discolouration of Teeth
For those grappling with tooth discoloration, dental veneers present a transformative solution. These thin shells effectively mask stains and discoloration, creating a radiant and uniformly bright smile. Experience the confidence that comes with a luminous set of teeth, free from the effects of staining and discoloration.
Gaps in Teeth
Veneers are an excellent option for addressing gaps between teeth. By carefully designing custom veneers, we can optimize the size and shape of each tooth, closing gaps and achieving a more harmonious alignment. Enjoy the benefits of a straighter, more even smile without the need for extensive orthodontic procedures.
Unusually Shaped or Pointed Teeth
When dealing with unusually shaped or pointed teeth, veneers provide a tailored solution. These custom shells are designed to enhance the shape and contour of each tooth, ensuring a more uniform and pleasing appearance. Say goodbye to awkwardly shaped teeth and hello to a beautifully refined smile that complements your facial features.


Veneers Candidacy

Achieving a radiant smile with veneers is a transformative journey suitable for individuals with various dental considerations. Candidates for Veneers in Staten Island, NY, typically:

Cosmetic dental issues, including tooth discoloration, staining, or mild misalignment. These customized shells can enhance your smile's aesthetic appeal with precision.
Whether dealing with minor chips or slightly misshapen teeth, veneers offer a tailored solution. Their versatility allows for precise corrections, providing both cosmetic and functional improvements.
Maintaining good oral health is paramount. Candidates for veneers should have healthy teeth and gums, providing a stable foundation for the cosmetic enhancements to thrive.

​​“Dr. Cipriano is the absolute best dentist with an amazing staff! They truly care about your experience in and out of the office. They know who we are when we walk in, and make us feel like we are part of the family. After a long road of genetic dental issues and quick fixes from other providers, my daughter did not smile with her mouth open until Dr. Cipriano worked his magic on her smile. He listened to her, was patient, kind and would not finish the job until HE, was completely satisfied that my daughter was happy. It might seem like a little thing, but finally seeing my daughter smile with her teeth showing has made a world of difference for this mom. The BEST of the BEST! Thank you Healthy Smiles of Staten Island”

“I grew up in SI & now live in FL. Even w/ that I have never changed my dentist. I go quarterly for cleanings. But here is why you should go here; I just flew up for Christmas, On 12/22 I needed a full root canal, typically multiple visits. Knowing I live in FL Dr. C stayed & completed the whole job, including using amazing technology to print a crown, in 1 visit. It was unreal. I had no pain & was at dinner in NYC that evening for a Christmas party.  Every person there is super nice, helpful, etc. Hands down, I will fly from FL to Newark just for an appointment here in SI. That’s how good they are, which I know sounds crazy.  But it’s worth it! If you live in Ny or Nj clearly the best dentist in the area.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted from tooth-colored materials like porcelain or composite resin. They are designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance.

Why would someone consider veneers?

Veneers are often chosen to address issues like stained teeth, chipped or worn enamel, irregularly shaped teeth, or gaps between teeth. They provide a cosmetic enhancement for a natural-looking smile.

How long do veneers last?

With proper care, veneers can last between 10 to 15 years or longer. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices contribute to their longevity.

Are veneers permanent?

The process of getting veneers is irreversible, as it involves removing a small amount of enamel from the teeth. However, the decision to have veneers is considered a long-term commitment.

Do veneers require special care?

Veneers don't need special care beyond regular oral hygiene practices. It's important to maintain good brushing and flossing habits and to attend regular dental check-ups.

Are veneers stain-resistant?

Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains, providing a durable and long-lasting solution for maintaining a bright, white smile.

How is the veneers procedure done?

The procedure typically involves a consultation, tooth preparation, impression taking, and bonding the veneers to the teeth. The process may require two or more appointments.

Do veneers feel like natural teeth?

Veneers are designed to look and feel like natural teeth. The thin shells are custom-made to match the color and shape of your existing teeth for a seamless integration.

Can veneers fix crooked teeth?

While veneers can improve the appearance of mildly misaligned teeth, they are not a substitute for orthodontic treatment. In cases of significant misalignment, orthodontic solutions may be recommended.

Are veneers covered by dental insurance?

Typically, veneers are considered a cosmetic procedure, and most dental insurance plans do not cover the cost. Schedule a consultation with us so that we can check with your insurance provider for specific details regarding coverage.
