The majority of patients with cosmetic flaws affecting one or more anterior teeth are suitable candidates for veneers. If you are suffering from dental conditions like periodontal disease or dental infection, these issues will need to be addressed before you can receive any cosmetic dentistry services. Patients with any of the following aesthetic concerns may benefit from receiving porcelain veneers:
To make treatment more affordable, we offer free consults and accept financing plans through CareCredit® and Lending Club.
We offer both in-office and virtual consultations for your convenience.
Your porcelain veneers treatment will begin with an in-office or Facetime consultation with Dr. Grossman. At this time, he will review your oral health, assess your smile and study your face, and listen to your treatment expectations. Dr. Grossman will take photographs and videos, and create models to design your ideal smile.
Smile design is all about the face. Dr. Grossman uses the Digital and Analogue methods to design dental veneers that address your concerns and complement your surrounding features. In addition, he works with world-renowned ceramists to craft customized high-quality veneers out of a solid block of porcelain.
During a visit to our office, Dr. Grossman will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from the surface of each treated tooth. He is extremely conservative in how much enamel he removes, only removing enough to create sufficient space for the veneers.
Impressions will then be taken of these teeth using a digital dental scanner, eliminating the need for messy, traditional impressions. This information will be forwarded to a ceramicist of outstanding reputation at the dental laboratory who will custom-craft your dental veneers.
We will have a wax-up available for you to put on over your teeth so you can see what you think before we even go forward with treatment.
Approximately two weeks later, you can return to our office to have your veneers placed. Your teeth will be cleaned and lightly buffed to optimize the bonding process. To ensure that your veneers blend in with your bite and smile, Dr. Grossman will double-check the shape, shade, and fit. Finally, the veneers will be placed over your teeth, and bonded in place with dental cement.

Dr. Grossman is an impeccable dentist. I have been to a number of dentists throughout the years, and Dr. Grossman is the best by far... I am a patient, my family and extended family all go to him, and a few of my friends have their dental work done there as well. If your dentist is not a ten out of ten on your scale, then you should try Dr. Grossman. You will never look back and be thankful you did.View on Google
Dr. Grossman has been awarded the Diplomate American Society for Dental Aesthetics, a recognition that has only gone to less than 100 dentists in the United States and only two in Long Island.
Dental-grade porcelain can withstand tremendous pressure, but veneers can still crack or weaken over time. To maximize the lifespan of your veneers, patients are encouraged to:
You can extend the longevity of your veneers by maintaining good oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing daily and seeing your dentist for regular cleanings and exams can prevent cavities from developing beneath the veneers. If this occurs, your veneers will need to be removed before a filling can be placed. In the worst case, tooth loss can occur and a dental implant must be placed.
It is important to avoid certain habits and activities that can damage your teeth or veneers like biting your fingernails or chewing ice.
Patients suffering from chronic teeth grinding can protect their veneers by using a nightguard.
We might determine that you are better suited for another cosmetic dental treatment. Patients who would prefer a more economic option that still achieves similar effects to veneers may want to consider the benefits of dental bonding.
