Porcelain Dental Veneers by Westchester Cosmetic Dentist

“After about a year of searching for a Westchester cosmetic dentist that I felt comfortable with, I had finally found Dr. Polevoy. The moment I walked into his office I was greeted by his warm and welcoming staff. Dr. Polevoy and his team made me feel at ease about my needed treatment. Not only did

Dr. Polevoy and his team make me feel totally comfortable; they were knowledgeable too. There wasn’t a question he couldn’t answer. He gave me options which I thought I didn’t have. The end result was remarkable. I have never felt so beautiful in my entire life. I would recommend Dr. Polevoy to anyone.

He is truly a fantastic dentist.”

Dental veneerDental veneers may be the most life-changing cosmetic dentistry procedures we perform.

In the hands of a skilled, experienced Harrison cosmetic dentist like Dr. Polevoy, dental veneers can give you a dazzling smile, helping you feel more confident and assertive.

Extremely thin casings of ceramic, veneers bond to the front of your teeth that may appear too small or large, slightly discolored, chipped, cracked or simply cosmetically unpleasant to you. As one of select number of cosmetic dentists in Westchester County to do veneers, Dr. Polevoy’s goal when applying veneers is to design each veneer to fit in and compliment the rest of your teeth, ensuring you an attractive new smile.
We ensure that your veneers are made of the most durable material. The conscientious staff at our Harrison dentist facility will provide you with the proper care instructions to guarantee long-lasting veneers.

What is the difference between dental porcelain veneers and bondings?

Veneers are porcelain, while the bondings are made of plastic. Porcelain veneers are more durable, retain their appearance longer, do not discolor, and are much less likely to chip or break. One of the top cosmetic dentists in Westchester, Dr. Polevoy uses porcelain dental veneers to achieve a dramatic change in his patients’ smile.

How much do dental veneers cost in Westchester?

Fees vary depending on an individual case, but you can expect to pay between $1,100 and $1,400 per tooth. At least 4 teeth, and often as many as 12, are normally done to achieve the desired result.

Are Lumineers porcelain veneers?

Lumineers are a type of porcelain veneers. We offer all kinds of porcelain dental veneers, and will recommend Lumineers where appropriate.

How long do porcelain veneers last?

The longevity of porcelain veneers varies by patient – and depends on why you needed veneers in the first place.

If you are correcting space/shape issues, porcelain veneers should last for a long time – 10-15 years is a reasonable estimate.

If you have worn or broken your teeth due to teeth grinding or clenching, it will be very important to protect your new veneers from damage with nightguards.  Even with this protection, the veneers may not last as long.

Does dental insurance cover porcelain veneers?

If the veneers are done to replace large fillings or previous veneers, we can frequently get your dental insurance to pay for new veneers.

Contact our insurance coordinators for more information.

What are the alternatives to porcelain veneers?

It depends on why you are looking to get veneers and what concerns you have with your smile.

If you like the way your teeth look – shape and color, for example – but you don’t like their alignment, Six Month Braces or Invisalign can be a good alternative.

If you like where your teeth are, but don’t like the color – we can discuss teeth whitening.

And if the issues are relatively minor, we can do dental bonding.

Any good cosmetic dentist will spend considerable time determining what your expectations are and will suggest the appropriate solution.
