"Saratoga springs family dentistry with Dr. Dodd and his great staff are the only dental team that I will trust with my dental care. Dr. Dodd is extremely knowledgeable and listens to my concerns and requests. On top of that you can trust that they will provide a very efficient appointment with terrific care. I have fairly sensitive teeth and through the many years of care that I have received from Dr. Dodd it has never been an issue. I chalk it up to the well trained staff and compassionate care that is provided.... And they have excellent aesthetic dentistry options too! I had my Invisalign teeth straightening performed here as well and the entire process was great with outstanding results!"- M.V. / Google / Apr 13, 2023
"Dr. Marcus and his team at Lake George Family Dentistry did an absolutely amazing job with the reconstruction of my mouth. From the get go I felt welcomed and reassured that my issues could be taken care of and I could finally get the smile and teeth that I have always wanted. Over the years I have had many rough visits with dentists that seemed to not care as much or not pay attention to overall comfort while sitting through certain procedures involving root canals, crowns, and much more. After getting up the courage and putting full trust into Dr. Marcus I scheduled a big appointment involving 6 veneers and 2 crowns. Simply put after a couple of hours as I glanced in the mirror I was blown away and now smile with confidence and can't thank his team enough for making sure I was comfortable and for doing such great work. Thank you Dr. Marcus and all staff at Lake George Family Dentistry."- C.L. / Google / Feb 16, 2023

For self pay patients like myself, their Smile Advantage Plan offers cost effective packages for a variety of services.

Am I A Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers may be used to rapidly cover chips and stains on your enamel, improve misaligned or worn down teeth, and fix teeth that are abnormally shaped or spaced. At Saratoga Springs Family Dentistry, your cosmetic veneers will be custom created to fit snugly over your teeth for an attractive and natural look. In your consultation, Dr. Dodd will listen to your goals and concerns so He can customize your procedure. Dr. Dodd will also see whether you are a good candidate for cosmetic veneers by analyzing the total health of your mouth. You should not have signs of periodontal disease, or routinely clench your jaw and grind your teeth (called bruxism).

- Crooked teeth
- Misshapen teeth

How do porcelain veneers work?
Getting porcelain veneers at our Saratoga Springs, NY office usually requires three visits to complete the process. At the first visit, we will work with you to design your new smile. The procedure may involve making models of your mouth and taking photographs so we can do a digital rendering of the final results with advanced smile design computer software. On the second visit, the teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is made and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and your dentist. Temporary veneers will be cemented on so you can evaluate the look and feel of your new smile. On the third visit, the temporaries will be removed and the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement will be placed between the tooth and the veneer and the cement will be hardened with a special light. When your veneers are bonded, we can make small adjustments so your veneers fit well and look great.
