    Which type of dental veneer is right for you? | Dr. Jacob Wallach, DDS

    Cosmetic dentistry offers a wide variety of options for patients desiring either a subtle or dramatic change to the appearance of their smile, but one of the most popular and long lasting is porcelain veneers.

    There are several types of dental veneers, but porcelain veneers offer permanent, comfortable and long lasting results- they can last for years with the proper oral hygiene and preventive care with Dr. Wallach at Rockland Riverside Dental in Nyack.

    Dental veneers can be used for cosmetic correction and as a solution for dental problems such as gaps between teeth, discolored teeth, and chipped or broken teeth.

    Dr. Wallach offers his dental patients several options for using dental veneers to correct a cosmetic or health problem:

    • Lumineers: a removable veneer requiring little to no tooth preparation
    • Composite resin veneers: Dr. Wallach skillfully places composite veneers, sculpting the biocompatible material to fit aesthetically with the patient’s natural teeth- this type of veneer is also removable and will have to be replaced over time;
    • Porcelain veneers: using high quality material, porcelain veneers offer a permanent restoration and are matched to a patient’s natural tooth color for beautiful results.

    Porcelain veneers are highly stain resistant and are made of a thin, translucent material that also reflects light in the same way a natural tooth does, allowing them to blend seamlessly with a patient’s natural smile.

    Custom fit and made in a dental lab, porcelain veneers allow a patient to function normally after treatment, eating and speaking without noticing that they are there! After the placement of the veneers, Dr. Wallach will educate his patients on the proper care of veneers in order to maximize their longevity.

    If you are ready to explore your options for a smile makeover or to correct a dental problem, contact Dr. Wallach at Rockland Riverside Dental in Nyack to schedule an appointment.
