Porcelain Veneers

Would you like to quickly transform your smile into one that is beautiful and dazzling? If so, porcelain veneers may be the right option for you. This versatile cosmetic dentistry restoration is quick, safe, and painless, and will help you flash your smile with confidence.

Placed over the front of your natural teeth, porcelain veneers are capable of eliminating the appearance of a number of common cosmetic dental problems including:

  • Chips and cracks
  • Uneven spacing and gaps

  • Uneven and irregular sizes
  • Severe discoloration

Alone or as part of a complete smile makeover, porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry solutions performed at our Media, Pennsylvania dental office.

Your Porcelain Veneer Process

To place porcelain veneers, Dr. Hillyard and Dr. Monroe will need to first remove a small amount of your natural tooth enamel. While this is necessary to allow your veneers to fit seamlessly into your smile we remove as little enamel as possible to ensure your teeth are not structurally impacted.

Once your teeth have been prepared, we will make an impression of your smile and fit you with temporary veneers. This impression will be sent to our local dental lab partners who will customize your veneers to our exact specifications. A wax-up of your expected results will be provided before your veneers are made, enabling you to have a say in what your smile will look like following treatment.

The creation of your custom-made porcelain veneers will take one to two weeks. During this time, you will continue to wear the temporary veneers we placed during your first appointment. Once your permanent veneers have arrived at our office, you will return to have them placed. Dr. Hillyard and Dr. Monroe will carefully inspect each veneer to ensure a natural look and feel prior to bonding them to your teeth. Once placed, your porcelain veneers will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.

During your initial cosmetic dentistry consultation, Dr. Hillyard and Dr. Monroe will be happy to answer any porcelain veneer questions you may have and to help you determine if they are the best solution for your smile.
