Porcelain veneers are an attractive, durable, and versatile solution to a number of common cosmetic dental problems. Main Line cosmetic dentist Dr. Jeffrey Bellisario has helped many patients restore vibrant, healthy-looking smiles through the application of custom-crafted porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers (also referred to as “dental veneers”) are thin shells of translucent porcelain that are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth, hiding the cosmetic imperfections in your smile. Veneers are a great way to improve your smile in just a few office visits. With regular dental hygiene, your veneers can provide you with a beautiful smile that lasts for decades to come.

What Problems Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?
Veneers are often used to treat the following cosmetic dental problems:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Discolored or permanently stained teeth
- Gapped or unevenly spaced teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Overly small teeth
Your porcelain veneers will be individually crafted to match the precise size, shape, and color of your surrounding teeth, ensuring a seamless smile line.
The Porcelain Veneers Process
The first step in the porcelain veneers process is creating impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be used in conjunction with advanced computer modeling to create your custom veneers. During your next visit, your teeth will be slightly altered (by approximately ½ of a millimeter) to ensure a perfect fit for your porcelain veneers. In most cases, we will place temporary veneers while your final restorations are created at the dental laboratory.
During your final visit, you will be able to try on your permanent veneers to confirm that the tint and fit are ideal. Once you decide you are happy with them, the veneers will be cleaned, a special cement will be applied to your teeth, and your veneers will be bonded and cured using a bonding light. We usually ask our patients to return to the office a few days later to make sure their bite and gum tissue look normal.
