Custom Porcelain Veneers in Villanova, PA

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are thin, tooth-colored pieces of pressed ceramic that fuse onto the tooth surface with special bonding agents. Veneers attach to your teeth's front surfaces to address a variety of cosmetic issues, such as chipped, broken, discolored, or smaller-than-average-sized teeth. Some patients may only need one veneer to fix a chipped or damaged tooth. However, most people receive six to eight veneers to create a symmetrical smile.

The Benefits of Veneers

A Simple Procedure: Veneers are popular in cosmetic dentistry because they can be used to treat many cosmetic blemishes with a simple procedure.

Look & Feel Natural: Porcelain reflects light the same way natural tooth enamel does, so your new smile will look new and beautiful in a natural way!

Customized for You: Veneers are made to perfectly fit your facial features. To enhance your facial appearance, they are custom-made to fit your needs.

Easy to Maintain: Once placed, veneers form part of your natural teeth and require no additional maintenance. To ensure the longevity of your new smile, it is, however, important to keep brushing and flossing your teeth and keep up with regular dental appointments.

Why Do I Need Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers in Villanova, PA, are a great solution for patients who would like to improve the esthetic appearance of their teeth. If you have the following issues with your teeth, then porcelain veneers may be the right choice for you:

  • Missing teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Teeth that are spaced unevenly
  • Worn down teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Unusually shaped teeth

What Are the Different Types of Veneers?

Veneers come in a variety of materials and colors, but all veneers are durable enough to withstand the natural wear and tear that your teeth will experience, as well as being stain-resistant to the foods and beverages you consume. 

Here are the different veneer options generally available:

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Composite bonding veneers
  • Ceramic veneers

What Is the Porcelain Veneers Procedure?

It generally takes three visits to Dr. Bre Patel to get your porcelain veneers completed. Your consultation will be the first visit; your second and third visits will be for creating your porcelain veneers and applying them so that you can show off your new beautiful smile!

How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?

On average, porcelain veneers can last between 15 and 25 years. They have a longer life span than composite veneers, which last from seven to ten years, as well as ceramic veneers, which can last from seven to 20 years. Porcelain veneers are the preferred veneer option as not only are they strong, they last longer. 

What Are the Downsides of Porcelain Veneers?

As with any dental procedure, there can be a few downsides to porcelain veneers:

  • Porcelain veneers are permanent and cannot be changed once you’ve committed to them
  • Although durable, they are still prone to damage like natural teeth
  • They can cause tooth sensitivity 

Dr. Bre Patel will happily discuss all you need to know about porcelain veneers with you and put your mind at ease.

Case: Ms. JL

Dr’s Comment: This patient had 6 uneven, unattractive natural teeth and did not wish to have Orthodontic Treatment. Careful study, measurements and tooth preparation allowed for the teeth to be straightened with just porcelain veneers.




Case: Mr. DP

Dr’s Comment: This patient’s wife finally motivated him to have porcelain laminate veneers made for his darkly stained, chipped 6 upper front teeth. Now he can’t stop smiling…and thanking her!




Case: Ms. NJ

Dr’s Comment: This young patient’s natural teeth were too narrow and short for the dimensions of her face and smile. With some selective laser gum surgery and guided by biometric proportion gauges, we can predictably improve on Nature.




Case: Ms. TM

Dr’s Comment: This attractive woman lived with darkly stained teeth for too many years. We suspect the staining was due to her taking tetracycline antibiotics as a young child. Now, after 8 porcelain laminate veneers she is delighted to show off her bright smile!
