Porcelain Veneers

Animated porcelain veneer process

A veneer is a thin sheathe of dental porcelain placed over the front of a tooth, and with one, Dr. Oshins can change virtually every aspect of the enamel for the better. A set of veneers can immediately hide a wide variety of flaws at once to create a red-carpet-ready smile in as little as two appointments. Our veneers are entirely custom-made for each patient, and with minimal maintenance, they have been shown to last for about 20 years.

Metal-Free Dental Crowns

If you need a crown to repair a broken or decayed tooth, you don’t have to worry about Dr. Oshins placing an unsightly metal restoration that instantly sticks out in your smile. Our metal-free crowns are made of 100% dental ceramic, which can be shaped and shaded to perfectly mimic real enamel down to the finest detail. These crowns also allow us to fix misshapen or undersized teeth that might be detracting from the smile.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

If you have an hour or so to spare, then you have plenty of time for cosmetic bonding. This quick and easy treatment is excellent for getting rid of minor chips, stains, and gaps. Dr. Oshins simply applies a composite resin to the tooth, covers the flaw, and then shapes it to make the enamel look like nothing was ever wrong with it. After that, the resin is hardened and polished, and you’re done! In the same time as the average lunch break, you can enhance your smile and get results that will last for the next decade.

KOR® Teeth Whitening

There are many teeth whitening treatments out there, but none of them are as effective as KOR. Why? KOR combines the speed and convenience of an in-office treatment with the long-lasting results of a take-home kit to deliver stunning results unlike any other. It’s great at removing longstanding stains caused by tobacco, wine, coffee, aging, and even tetracycline, which are usually beyond the scope of most professional solutions. With KOR, your teeth will stay sparkling white for years to come.

Gum Recontouring

Do your gums tend to overshadow your teeth whenever you smile? This is a common issue, but gum recontouring can take care of it in as little as one visit. Dr. Oshins precisely and painlessly removes any excess tissue to reveal hidden enamel, instantly making the teeth appear longer to create a fuller, more balanced smile. This procedure may also serve as a first step to create enough room to place a veneer or porcelain crown.

Virtual Smile Design

Virtual Smile Design allows us to take a photo of your current smile and edit it to preview the results of veneers, bonding, whitening, or any other procedure you’re considering. You can design your dream look right alongside Dr. Oshins, and with your approval, he can then get to work turning it into a reality.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

If you’re unhappy with the way your teeth look, cosmetic dentistry in Schenectady can give you a stunning smile. It’s normal to have some questions or concerns about what you can expect. Dr. Steven Oshins will explain everything during your initial consultation. You can also find the answers to the most frequently asked questions below. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, feel free to contact our office to speak with a member of our team.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

Cosmetic dentistry is attributed to being expensive, but it is more affordable than you might think. There are more treatment options than ever before, which means there’s a procedure to fit your budget. Our office also provides various financial solutions to revamp your smile without costing you an arm or a leg, like a monthly payment plan using CareCredit.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Dr. Oshins will keep your comfort as his top priority. He may use a numbing medication to block pain, but you may feel some pressure or unusual sensations. Some treatments may cause temporary numbness after the effects of any numbing agents wear off. You can manage it with an OTC pain reliever and eating soft foods. Dr. Oshins will review any additional aftercare instructions before you go home.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

Cosmetic dentistry isn’t a single procedure. Various treatments are classified as cosmetic dental services, each with different lifespans. Not to mention, many things can influence the duration of your results, like your aftercare routine. You can get the most from your investment with good oral hygiene and regular dental care. Break any bad habits that can damage your teeth, like chewing on your fingernails.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Take?

Every treatment has a different timeline. Some procedures can be performed in one visit, like teeth whitening and dental bonding. Other procedures may require more than one appointment, like porcelain veneers. Dr. Oshins will explain how long you can expect it to take during your consultation.

Can I Use My Dental Insurance for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Your dental insurance may pay some of the expenses for your consultation, diagnostic services, and preliminary procedures. It’s unusual for dental insurance to pay for elective services, but there are exceptions. Many cosmetic procedures also provide restorative benefits. If Dr. Oshins determines treatment is medically necessary, your insurance might pay 50% to 80% of the costs after meeting your annual deductible. We will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to maximize your yearly allowance.
