Are your teeth stained, chipped, or worn? For patients who wish to change the color, shape, size, or length of their teeth, Dr. Roy Oyangen in Schenectady, NY may recommend dental veneers over Dental Bonding.  Dental veneers are thin shells that are custom made of tooth-colored materials to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. Our dentist may recommend dental veneers to fix the following smile flaws:


Worn-down teeth

Porcelain Veneer Fixes:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Teeth that are slightly crowned or crooked
  • Give new shape to a tooth
  • Gaps and spaces between teeth

Dental veneers can be made from 2 types of materials; a porcelain or a resin composite. A main benefit of porcelain dental veneers is their resistance to stains.  They also mimic the natural light reflecting properties of natural teeth.  The resin composite veneers are thinner and do not require us to remove as much tooth enamel before placement. Talk with our dentist to discover which veneer material is right for you.

Dental Veneer Advantages

Dental veneers have many advantages. They look like your natural teeth and are stain resistant. Porcelain veneers can be color& shaded matched to your natural teeth.  If desired, a shade can be selected that will make your teeth whiter. Gum tissues tolerate porcelain veneers well, so there will be no discomfort after placement.
