Dr. Jason Petkevis is one of the leading dentists in the Exton, PA area for advanced restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures including porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment that is used to create subtle or dramatic changes to your smile.
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that cover the base of your natural teeth to enhance your smile. They are permanent dental restorations that will look and feel like a natural tooth. The medical-grade material offers advanced treatment to meet your cosmetic needs and durable results that can last a lifetime. The best part of using porcelain material is that it’s highly stain-resistant. Dr. Petkevis may use porcelain veneers or composite resin veneers to:
- Correct misaligned or crooked teeth: We can use veneers to fix the alignment of a single crooked tooth at a time.
- Correct misshapen teeth: Teeth that are short or oddly shaped can be fixed with veneers.
- Cover stained or discolored teeth: A tooth that has a significant stain can be covered with a veneer. They can also be helpful if your tooth does not respond well to traditional teeth whitening, or you want to save money by not getting a full teeth whitening treatment.
- Cover broken or chipped teeth: Teeth that are cracked, chipped, or broken can easily be repaired with affordable porcelain veneers.
The Porcelain Veneer Process
Phase 1: The first step is a comprehensive evaluation and consultation with Dr. Petkevis at his Exton, PA cosmetic dentistry office. He will take photographs and preliminary impressions of your teeth. Dr. Petkevis will then determine if you are a good candidate for dental veneers and if they are able to meet your cosmetic goals. Dr. Petkevis will create a personalized treatment plan for you and recommend which type of dental veneer is right for you.
Phase 2: Dr. Petkevis will prepare the teeth to be treated by removing a small amount of enamel from the front of the teeth. Dental impressions will then be taken and Dr. Petkevis will work with you to choose the right color, size, and shape so that your veneer teeth will blend seamlessly with your natural smile. We will place temporary veneers on the teeth for comfort and appearance until the final restoration is ready. Your customized veneer teeth will be finalized and sent to a dental lab for fabrication.
Phase 3: In approximately 2–3 weeks you will return to our Exton, PA dentist office where your new porcelain veneers will be permanently affixed to your teeth. Dr. Petkevis will try the veneers on your teeth to check the fit and color. Once both you and the dentist are satisfied, Dr. Petkevis will use a special bonding cement to secure the porcelain veneers to your teeth.
