Veneers are thin sheaths of porcelain bonded directly onto the front surface of damaged or deformed teeth. In just two visits to Sunrise Dental Service in Bohemia, our team can evaluate your needs, design your new look, place your gorgeous veneers and instantly improve the shape, color, and overall appearance of your smile.

They are able to hide most types of aesthetic imperfections, including discoloration, chips, cracks, teeth that are too small, minor gaps between the teeth, and more. Veneers look extremely natural because porcelain bears a strong resemblance to real tooth enamel. Plus, the size, shape, and color of veneers are carefully custom-designed for each patient. The treatment process takes just a few appointments, and the results can last for decades.
Some of the most outstanding benefits of veneers include:
The veneers process requires two or three visits to our office. During your consultation, Dr. Makadia will determine if veneers are the right treatment for you. If they are, he will get to work on designing your new look. Let our team know if you have any preferences. For example, if you want your teeth to be a certain color or shape, be sure to tell us. Feel free to bring inspiration pictures with you.
We use digital shade-matching technology during the veneer design process, so you can be confident that your new look will be the perfect color.
To prepare your teeth for veneers, Dr. Makadia will remove a sliver of enamel. This step ensures that your final results will look sleek and natural. Then, you will wear a temporary veneer while a laboratory creates your permanent ones. Once your permanent ones are ready, we will ensure that they live up to our strict quality standards before we attach them to your teeth.
Dr. Makadia and the team at Sunrise Dental Service have helped many patients achieve the smile of their dreams. If you want to enhance your smile and are considering veneers, the following FAQs about veneers that may help you. If you do not find the answers to your specific questions, give us a call, and we will be happy to discuss. We look forward to speaking with you!
Veneers are made of porcelain. They are considered high quality due to their strength and beautiful, opalescent tooth-like appearance.
A set of veneers can last for decades with proper care. Veneers are certainly a long-term solution to aesthetic imperfections and can be easily redone whenever necessary.
Instant orthodontics is the term applied to a tooth veneer’s ability to immediately straighten part of or an entire smile. Dental veneers do not actually straighten your teeth, but they do give you the straighter/brighter looking smile you always wanted. (Some cases of misalignment require braces or clear aligners, but mild misalignment is often disguisable with veneers.)
Veneers are mainly used for cosmetic purposes. Veneers protect and cover small cracks or chips, hide dull or misshapen teeth surfaces, and allows for teeth size adjustments. They are also effective in giving a brighter and even looking smile.
Porcelain veneers are made out of non-porous material that does not easily absorb pigments. Therefore, you should be able to enjoy coffee in moderation without worrying that you will stain your veneers.
Veneers do not respond to regular whitening products, such as gels, strips, and whitening toothpaste. If you want a brighter smile with whiter teeth, our office will help you with teeth whitening before you get the veneers. This way, the natural teeth not getting veneers will be whiter, and your veneers can be matched to the color of your whiter natural teeth.
If you already have veneers and wish they were brighter, let our team know. We can easily remove veneers with our latest technology without damaging your underlying tooth structure and give you a new brighter/whiter set of veneers.
Getting veneers placed is a pain-free process. We strive to make our patients as comfortable as possible and we will explain the process step by step as the procedure is being done.
Taking care of your veneers is similar to taking care of your natural teeth.
If you observe proper oral hygiene, like brushing your teeth, flossing regularly, and visiting our practice at least twice a year for regular teeth cleanings, your gums and teeth will stay healthy and your veneers will continue to look dazzling.
Because veneers are attached to natural teeth, they need to remain healthy.
