WHAT IS A DENTAL VENEERS
Dental veneer is a thin but solid porcelain shell that is fixed (glued) on the front side of your tooth.
It’s function is to improve the shape and color of your natural tooth and protect it.
Veneer is very thin between 0.3 and 0.5 mm so the tooth is shaved very slighly.
After the veneer is installed it is not possible to differ it from your natural teeth.
Veneer is a modern way to solve such problems as an ugly shape of tooth, insufficient height, enamel roughness, pigmentation, spots on enamel, interdental gaps, an irregularly growing tooth, cracks, seals and others.

History of Veneers
Did you know that the radiant smiles of celebrities with their perfectly even teeth are in most cases not a gift of generous nature, but the result of using veneers?
The idea of veneers is not new – back in the 1920s, actors glued thin plate on their tooth to create an illusion of a perfect smile. That was a temporary solution – such the records lasted only a few days, only until the end of filming. Since then, much has changed.
Modern veneers are a work of art made on a high level, they are able to solve many cosmetic problems: from cracks and uneven teeth to sensitive enamel.
Veneer is a thin, but very flexible plate, which is attached to front part of the tooth and literally transforms it, according to veneers definition. To install veneers, teeth need to be slightly sharpened (and far from being as strong as installing a crown!).
Simply put, veneers for teeth are modern alternative to dental crowns. And although it is usually impossible to replace dental crowns in all cases, dental veneers are very widespread in cosmetic dentistry.

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are placed over the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. They are made of durable materials, such as porcelain or resin, and are carefully crafted to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth.
Veneers can solve a variety of problems, including:
- Chips and cracks: If you have teeth that are chipped or cracked, veneers can cover and protect these imperfections, giving you a smooth, even smile.
- Gaps: If you have gaps between your teeth, veneers can be used to fill them in, giving you a more cohesive and aesthetically pleasing smile.
- Discoloration: Veneers can also be used to whiten teeth that have become stained or discolored over time.
- Misaligned teeth: If you have teeth that are slightly misaligned, veneers can be used to straighten and align them, giving you a more symmetrical and attractive smile.
In short, veneers are a versatile and effective solution for a range of cosmetic dental problems, helping you achieve the beautiful, confident smile you deserve.

“The ad says beyond imagination and it was. I was amazed by the environment and atmosphere… the minute I walked through the door. The aromatherapy, spa music, massages, backrubs. This was the complete package”.
But the facility just set the stage for the main event. Oksana knew 100% exactly what she wanted — a bright Hollywood smile. Dr. Gershkowitz did a smile makeover on Oksana including upper and lower veneers. The results were evident right away, and they were flawless.
“My whole smile changed before my eyes. The doctor is such a perfectionist. Her nature and personality and creativity drive her. She wont get up from the chair until she knows it is her best work. Dr. Gershkowitz is one of a kind. She made me feel very special”.
Oksana has been surprised, not only at how she feels about herself but with how others treat her.
“In the mirror, I cant get enough of myself, I am so pleased. And from the moment I left Dental Spa & Beyond, absolute strangers in Manhattan will stop me and compliment me on my smile. How could I be happier? I have the Hollywood wow factor”.
