What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment option that can completely transform the appearance of the teeth. These thin ceramic shells are bonded to the front of the teeth to mask the appearance of chips, cracks, stains, or unevenness in the smile. Dr. Buono uses the highest quality material in the creation of veneers, ensuring that they are not only strong but that they accurately mimic the appearance of the natural teeth. Veneers are a versatile treatment option; customized for each patient to help him or her achieve specific cosmetic goals, veneers can be used to correct a number of mild aesthetic flaws.

The placement process for porcelain veneers typically requires two appointments. During an initial consultation, Dr. Buono will examine and prep the teeth for veneers by gently removing the top layer of enamel. This provides space for the prosthetic and prepares the surface of the tooth for the bonding material. He will then use an intraoral scanner to take a digital impression of the teeth. These impressions will be sent to a lab and referenced during the creation of the veneers to ensure a natural fit. While the veneers are being fabricated in a dental laboratory, temporary veneers will be placed. Once the porcelain veneers have been created, the patient can return to our Garden City, Long Island practice to have them permanently bonded to the teeth. Dr. Buono has a keen aesthetic eye and advanced technical skills, enabling him to place the veneers properly, and shape and shade them to produce a luminous result.                           


Lumineers® are an appealing, less-invasive alternative to traditional porcelain veneers. Commonly referred to as minimal-prep veneers, Lumineers® produce results that are similar to traditional veneers, without the need to remove enamel. Because Lumineers® don’t require extensive changes to the natural tooth they are also reversible, making them a welcomed option for patients who are reluctant to make a permanent change. Finally, Lumineers® are natural-looking and long-lasting, with results lasting up to 20 years.

Snap-On Smile®

The Snap-On Smile® is another minimally-invasive alternative to porcelain veneers. This custom-fit tray literally “snaps on” over a patient’s natural teeth, without the need for drilling or bonding. It can also be removed at any time, without the need for a dental appointment. The Snap-On Smile® is an excellent treatment option for patients who desire the look of porcelain veneers, but cannot afford extensive treatment.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Whether you opt for porcelain veneers, Lumineers™, or the Snap-On Smile®, these cosmetic treatments have a number of benefits. First, they can be used to address a number of cosmetic flaws, including tooth discoloration, cracks, and uneven spacing or tooth size. The Snap-On Smile® can even be used if you are missing teeth. Some other benefits of veneers include:

  • Durable material can last more than 15 years
  • Custom-made for your specific cosmetic goals
  • Stain-resistant
  • Natural-looking
  • Instant Results
  • Increased Confidence
