Schenectady cosmetic dentist porcelain veneersSchenectady Cosmetic Dentist Uses Porcelain Veneers To Create Ideal Smiles

If you're not completely satisfied with your smile, you don't approach the world in the most confident way. You may struggle to feel comfortable showing off your teeth, which leads to hidden smiles and missed opportunities for friendliness. Your attitude towards your smile may even be making you come off as a less expressive, shy person. Our Schenectady dentist wants every patient to possess a smile he or she adores. Your smile should look great and make you feel great.

What are my options for transforming my smile? Won't I have to undergo some complicated cosmetic dentistry?

Altering your smile doesn't need to be complicated. With porcelain veneers, we're able to create new tooth surfaces in just two appointments.

Veneers are thin shells that bond to the front of  your teeth. Porcelain allows the veneers to be so thin that very little tooth reduction is needed to create room for the restorations. This reduces your need to wear temporaries between your first and second veneer appointments, and also reduces the need for anesthesia. The veneers may be made in any shape or shade. Should you decide to receive veneers on multiple front teeth, you may choose to go a few shades lighter than your natural teeth to permanently whiten your front teeth.

Porcelain veneers can change your teeth in the following ways:

  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Lengthen short front teeth
  • Whiten discolored teeth resistant to hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening
  • Reduce tooth sensitivity
  • Straighten crooked teeth

Porcelain veneers may be applied to any number of your front teeth. These beautiful alterations will last upwards of ten years. Learn more about how porcelain veneers could perfect your smile by contacting our Schenectady dentist. Your days of feeling anything but pride for your smile will soon be over.
