Dental Veneers New York, NY

Do you wish your smile had a “wow factor”? Not willing to undergo a lengthy or invasive treatment plan to get the smile you want? Consider porcelain veneers. Dental veneers are one of the most preferred solutions in cosmetic dentistry, with the ability to make drastic improvements to the appearance of your smile in very minimal time.

Porcelain veneers are considered among the most conservative aesthetic restorations available. Veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are bonded on the front surface of your existing teeth. A single veneer or multiple veneers can be placed depending on your needs and goals. Veneers can permanently cover up a wide range of aesthetic dental flaws without invasive techniques.

Still unsure or curious about getting porcelain veneers? We understand. Here are some answers to some commonly asked questions about cosmetic dental veneers to help you feel more confident about your smile makeover decision.

Do Cosmetic Veneers Really Look Natural?
It is common for patients to worry that their veneers will look unnaturally white or too noticeable to others. This is an unfortunate misconception. Modern veneers are seamlessly customized to match the thickness, shape and natural color of your existing teeth. They are very thin and even offer the same light refraction qualities as real teeth. The celebrity smiles you see in Hollywood are often smiles that have been created with the help of porcelain veneers.

What Cosmetic Flaws Can Dental Veneers Solve?
Porcelain dental veneers can solve imperfections that you were born with as well as those that occurred over time. In fact, they are known for their remarkable versatility and ability to address the following smile flaws:

  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Close uneven gaps between teeth
  • Lengthen short or stubby teeth
  • Improve the shape a tooth
  • Mask severely stained teeth
  • Conceal slight tooth misalignment

Is It Painful to Get Veneers?

Like most major dental procedures, cosmetic veneers are applied after a patient has received a local anesthetic. While veneers are not considered invasive, this eliminates any discomfort during the procedure. If you are feeling especially anxious about your procedure, don’t hesitate to ask for sedation dentistry.

Are Veneers Permanent?
To ensure a strong bond between the veneer and your existing tooth, a very small portion of your tooth must be filed down before a veneer can be placed. This allows your veneer to function like normal teeth and be a permanent solution for a more confident smile. This minimal reshaping of your tooth also means that your veneers are irreversible.

Are Veneers Only Used for Aesthetics?
While the primary goal of most veneers is to enhance and improve the overall appearance of your smile, dental veneers can also be used towards the back of your mouth to fill out cheeks and rebuild molars.

Can Veneers Be Used as Instant Orthodontics?
Not everyone qualifies, but patients with mild misalignment on the front teeth may be able to get veneers instead of undergoing orthodontic treatment. Since veneers don’t actually move your teeth, it is important that there are no bite issues or severe orthodontic concerns that need to be addressed.

How Long Does It Take to Get Cosmetic Veneers?
A highlighted advantage of choosing porcelain veneers is the speedy timetable. In most cases, patients can achieve a natural-looking and more confident smile in just two short office visits. Veneers are perfect for those that are short on time or need a stunning smile before an upcoming event.

Will My Veneers Require Extra Care?
In general, you can care for your veneers just like natural teeth. While your veneers are stain-resistant and not able to decay, you still have natural teeth underneath your veneers that must be kept clean and healthy. Keep in mind that your veneers can’t withstand ice chomping, opening packages and teeth grinding without suffering damage.

Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
The most accurate way to determine whether or not you qualify for veneers is to schedule a consult with a reputable cosmetic dentist.

VERY PLEASANT AND LOOKING FORWARD TO MY NEXT VISIT! This dental office was bright and warm from the moment I walked in. The young ladies there were friendly and very pleasant. They offered me a choice of beverage while explaining the online form enrollment process. My xray technician was very pleasant and went through a set of 18(!) x-rays using this new low-radiation equipment. It was a very painless process that went very quickly considering what it would normally take using the old way of taking individual bite-wings. Dr. Vazquez was also very pleasant as she patiently explained her observations of my x-rays.Afterward I sat down for my cleaning with Marcielle (spelling ?) - who was another round of pleasant service as she cleaned and polished my teeth. NO PAIN AT ALL! :) This office has a happy bright orange color theme which immediately adds to the very comforting and cheerful ambiance all around. All I can say is I highly recommend the staff here - they are so ready to deliver service with a smile!

When I stepped foot into the door at this dental office I was terrified because of my previous experiences in other dental offices. I had no choice but to come and get my teeth fixed so I made an appointment. I was warmly welcomed at the front desk and when I told the front desk how terrified I was of being there it was amazing how nice and supportive the ladies were. When I went in for x-rays the technician was amazing as she spoke to me and made me smile. The hygienist was amazing as she had to work hard to clean my teeth and she made me feel so comfortable and I had literally no fear what s ever. My fear was gone. As I saw the dentist I was amazed at her knowledge and he comfort and patience as she worked on me and advised me as to what I needed. I love this place and my fear of dentists is actually gone to the point that I already made two appointments for the rest of the work to be done. Thank you so much for making me feel so comfortable and part of your family as I was surrounded with people who actually cared about me and my feelings and who made me feel better. Thank you soooooooo much.

Wow just started about 2 weeks ago and I must tell you that my experience was pleasant. I know how could this be possible. They were professional and attentive. The wait time is so short I could not believe it. They are knowledgeable and really work with you and your situation. Not looking to make that buck like so many others I have been to. I felt comfortable which has never been the case. The place is clean and covers a lot of dental work under one roof. I must say it is the best place I have been in years. They get my vote and I will be returning to continue my needed work !!

I had an appointment with Dr. Concencion and got feedback on why I was there, which was for my concern about a tooth that had trauma to it years ago. I got a full exam that included full mouth x-rays and a cleaning. The receptionists, x-ray technician, dental hygienist, and dentist were all very friendly and pleasant to be around. It was really the most welcoming and comforting experience I've ever had at a dentist's office. I found it a little strange that I have to schedule a consultation with the endodontist to discuss my tooth that I am concerned about, but then again I don't know much about these things and actually do trust that they were being genuine about the medical advice I was given (which is usually not my feeling as a new patient at a dentist's office).


I first went to Group Health Dental at the beginning of 2015 for a root canal. My original dentist wanted to only do certain procedures because he didn't feel it was worth it financially since I have union coverage. He actually told me this to my face. He left me in tremendous pain and I even had to demand antibiotics. I was referred to Group Health by someone else but they were not able to help me because I was too swollen and they did not have an oral surgeon. I went elsewhere to have the tooth extracted since the infection was too severe for the tooth to be saved. Months later, I still needed work since I since never went back to the original dentist. I decided to take a chance with Group Health Dental and I am so glad I did. I walked in the door terrified from my experiences elsewhere but EVERYONE, from the young ladies at reception, the dental hygenist, exray technician, root canal specialist, dentist, his assistant and even the young ladies taking your payment made it an amazing experience for me. Pleasant, caring, gentle and professional people in a clean and pleasing atmosphere. I purposefully waited until all the work was done and waited an additional week to make sure the new work wasn't bothering me to write this review. If I could give them ten stars, I would. Group Health Dental rocks!!! :-) :-) :-)

I was one of those people that dreaded going to the dentist, but after I started going to Group Health Dental in Midtown, I met Dr. Benito and everything changed. Now I am one of those people who actually looks forward to her dentist appointments. He and his assistant have rake in the street which causes both of them to always be in a great mood and they always are happy to see you. He always makes me laugh, and I mean always. Dr. Bonito and Esmira ( his assistant) are wonderful. they always make sure you're completely satisfied with their work, they're very attentive and always make time to see you when you have an emergency or need to speak with them. Now going to the dentist is one of those things that I post about on Facebook because I always come back with a new story or a new joke to tell after my visit to Dr. Benito and Esmira. If you want to have a dentist that feels more like visiting a friend than getting work done, you need to try Dr. Benito. #mydentistisbetterthanyours!!!
