Dental Veneers on the Upper West Side
Glassman Dental Care provides dental veneers on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Call us today at 212-787-4860 to schedule an appointment.
How Veneers Will Help You Smile Brighter
Dental veneers are used cosmetically to treat a variety of tooth issues, including broken teeth, heavily stained teeth, worn down teeth, or a gap-filled smile. Veneers are attached to your existing teeth through an advanced bonding process, giving you straighter and whiter teeth to complement your look.
With the new dental technology available at Glassman Dental Care, the dream of a perfect smile could become your reality. This is more than just a cosmetic choice—while it’s true that veneers may enhance your appearance, they may also prove to be a valuable investment by giving you a better chance in a job interview or even a first date. It’s no wonder why porcelain veneers are one of the most commonly requested procedures at our NYC practice.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Veneers
What type of problems can porcelain veneers correct?
Porcelain veneers are sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics” because they can be used to cover a variety of dental problems, although more severe orthodontic issues like overbites and underbites must be corrected with traditional orthodontic treatment. Dental veneers are used to correct:
- Spaces between the teeth
- Poorly shaped or crooked teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Permanently externally stained and/or internally stained teeth
- Unsightly or stained fillings
How much do porcelain veneers cost in NYC?
Porcelain veneers are more expensive than indirect or direct composite resin alternatives, more commonly known as bonding. Traditional porcelain veneers cost between $1,200 and $2,500 per tooth, depending on the skill of the dentist and ceramist. Porcelain veneers can last 10 to 15 years. In some cases, they can last even longer. Composite veneers (bonding) cost approximately $250 to $1,500 per tooth and may last five to seven years, but they often require maintenance visits.
Can porcelain veneers ruin your teeth?
No, porcelain veneers do not ruin your natural tooth structure! The procedure used to place them is minimally invasive, which means that having the veneers bonded in place does not ruin or hurt your teeth. Dental veneers are designed to fit over your teeth and enhance their naturally beautiful appearance. In fact, teeth that have internal cracks are often strengthened by this procedure.
What are other benefits of porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are more stain-resistant than natural tooth enamel because of the high polishability of porcelain, so you can drink or eat without worrying about staining your perfect smile. Veneers have the added benefit of protecting your natural tooth enamel from acidic foods and strong brushing that wears your teeth down. In fact, porcelain veneers can replace the worn enamel that has been lost by excessive tooth forces during chewing.
How much does a full mouth of veneers cost in NYC?
The cost of full mouth veneers in NYC depends on how many veneers will be needed. A quick test would be to smile wide and see how many teeth are shown. Depending on the skill and experience of the doctor and ceramist, it may range from $12,000 to $30,000. Choosing to get dental veneers can improve your life in a number of ways, including building confidence and self-esteem, so many of our UWS patients find the cost to be well-worth the social and professional benefits.
Which is better, veneers or Lumineers?
Both veneers and Lumineers are made from a type of porcelain or ceramic material. Lumineers are much thinner than veneers (they’re about as thick as a contact lens), but they’re still strong and durable. Lumineers are most commonly used on teeth that have not been prepared, so while they are thinner and more conservative, they may feel and look bulkier when compared to porcelain veneers. With porcelain veneers, more detail can be built, which makes for a more natural smile.
What are the disadvantages of having veneers?
The disadvantages include:
- Porcelain veneers can be expensive.
- Chipped or damaged veneers cannot be repaired and must be replaced.
- It’s an irreversible procedure. Once they’re on, veneers can only be removed by a dentist. When they are removed, they must be replaced with new veneers.
- Your tooth may become more sensitive to hot and cold for a short time.
- Grinding can damage veneers, so if you grind your teeth in your sleep, a night guard may be required.
- Dental veneers can debond and come loose, although they can often be rebonded without having to make a new one.
