Do you have deep tooth stains? Are your crooked teeth impacting the aesthetic of your smile? Receive cosmetic dental treatment with porcelain veneers in Ardmore, PA. Dr. Jeffrey Bellisario is a cosmetic dentist who works with patients to meet their oral health goals. He takes the medical and dental history of each patient into account in order to create the right solution for their current needs.
At the Office of Dr. Bellisario, our dentists use dental veneers crafted from high-quality porcelain ceramic. Because porcelain ceramic reflects light, they easily blend in with the look of natural teeth. Dental veneers create brighter, straighter teeth and a more uniform smile.
Treatment with Porcelain Veneers
Dr. Bellisario first takes impressions of the teeth which are used to fabricate custom veneers. The dental veneers are color-matched to blend in with the smile. To prepare teeth for porcelain veneers, Dr. Bellisario etches into the enamel and uses a liquid conditioner to roughen the tooth’s surface.
This ensures that the veneers do not feel bulky in the mouth and properly conform to the teeth. Then, Dr. Bellisario will apply a resin to each tooth. Once he determines that the veneers are the correct shape and color, he will use a curing light to bond the veneers. Finally, he will polish the dental veneers for a high shine.

How long do porcelain veneers last?
Dental veneers can last for many years and can last a lifetime with the right care. To maintain your veneers, continue to brush and floss twice a day. We do not recommend dental veneers for patients who clench and grind their teeth, as this can damage the veneer. Porcelain ceramic is a strong material, but it can still be damaged.

- Match the shade of natural teeth

How much are porcelain veneers?
The cost of your veneers will depend on the material of the veneers as well as how many you need to meet your cosmetic goals. Most porcelain veneer procedures are not covered by dental insurance. However, we can provide financing options for our qualified patients.
Do I need veneers or dental bonding treatment?
Dental veneers and tooth bonding treatment are similar cosmetic options for patients who want to improve their smiles. Porcelain veneers typically last longer than bonded teeth. Alternatively, dental bonding provides a more economical option for patients. We will often recommend dental bonding for patients with smaller imperfections, including chips or breaks in the tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers are often used for multiple teeth to improve the overall appearance of the smile.
