If you would like the color, shape, size, or length of a tooth restored, we recommend speaking with Dr. Mark L. Pitel about porcelain veneers. Dental veneers are thin shells that are custom made of tooth-colored materials to cover the front of the teeth. When bonded in place, dental veneers improve the appearance of your smile. Our dentist may recommend dental veneers to repair:
- Discolored teeth
- Worn-down teeth
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Teeth that appear too short
- Slightly crowded or crooked teeth
- Misshaped teeth
- Gaps and spaces between teeth
Dental veneers in Poughkeepsie, New York, can be made from porcelain or resin composite. Porcelain dental veneers resist stains better than resin dental veneers. Porcelain dental veneers also mimic the light-reflecting properties better than resin dental veneers. Ask our dentist which type of dental veneer is right for you.
Dental veneers have many advantages. They look like your natural teeth, so they are very aesthetic. The color of your veneer can be matched to that of your natural teeth, or a shade can be selected that will lighten your smile. Your gums will tolerate the dental veneer material well.
