Dental Veneers
Veneers are custom-made shells of tooth-colored material that are used to cover the front side of the teeth. Dr. Mark L. Pitel may recommend veneers if you have smile flaws that you would like to correct. Improving the appearance of your smile can increase your confidence and self-esteem.

Dental Veneers Can Correct Smile Flaws
Veneers in Poughkeepsie, New York, can correct many smile flaws, including:

– Discolored teeth
– Worn down teeth
– Chipped or broken teeth
– Misaligned or uneven teeth
– Irregularly shaped teeth
– Gaps between teeth

Caring for Your Dental Veneers
Dental veneers usually last between 5 and 10 years. After this, your veneers will need to be replaced so you can maintain your beautiful smile.

Our dentist may recommend that you avoid foods and beverages that may stain your dental veneers, including red wine, tea, and coffee. This is just a precaution, as veneers resist stains. Dental veneers do not require any special care. You can continue to brush, floss, and use mouthwash as normal.
