A veneer is a preparation in which the front or lip-side of a tooth is reduced and replaced with essentially a half dental crown. Veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment performed for aesthetic purposes and can completely reshape and reform a person’s smile. Veneers can hide severe tooth staining (due to antibiotic use as a child, or otherwise), but are most often used if a patient wants to have very uniform teeth. Sometimes known as “instant orthodontics,” veneers also are able to remove gaps entirely from a person’s smile — as well as any chips, cracks, stains, or other cosmetic imperfections.
Are you searching for a dentist in the Capital District to provide the best dental veneers possible and rebuild a beautiful, flawless smile? Our team is ready to put their decades of experience to work for you. Please give us a call to request a consultation and take the first step in achieving your dream smile!

BOTOX® can help alleviate dysfunction and pain associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome and migraine issues. Our dentists can use BOTOX® to reduce the force being placed on facial muscles, providing tremendous relief while also enhancing facial aesthetics. Imperfections such as a gummy smile can be eliminated entirely using BOTOX® to relax the muscles around the lips and cover up excessive, exposed gum tissue.
Why would a dentist administer BOTOX®? There is really no other health practitioner better qualified to help! Our dentists provide injections to patients every day, and also are aesthetic enhancement experts. We have been providing Capital District smiles with balance, harmony, and function since 1982, after all!
