Do you have single, stained teeth? Are chips and cracks in your tooth enamel affecting your smile? At Wayne Family Dentistry, offer treatment with porcelain veneers to patients in Wayne, PA. Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dental solution that improves the appearance of teeth and creates a more uniform smile.
Our dental veneers are made of porcelain ceramic, a material that reflects light just like natural tooth enamel. Veneers are used to cover tooth gaps, dental injuries, and deep stains. Patients who choose dental veneers can receive brighter and more even teeth.
Treatment with Porcelain Veneers
To prepare teeth for dental veneers, we etch into the teeth to remove a small layer of the tooth enamel. This creates a proper bonding surface for the veneers. We will take dental impressions that are used to create custom-made dental veneers.
Once the porcelain veneers are completed, we make sure that they match the desired shape and shade. Then, we bond the veneers to the teeth using a curing light. Finally, we polish the veneers for a natural shine.
After your dental veneer treatment, we ask that you eat a diet of soft foods and stay away from hard and chewy foods. Also, avoid foods and beverages that easily stain, including coffee, tea, wine, berries, and tomatoes. When brushing your veneers, use non-abrasive toothpaste and brush gently.
Porcelain Veneers FAQs

Should I choose tooth bonding or dental veneers?
Dental bonding and porcelain veneers are similar treatments because they can cover stained and damaged teeth. However, there are several differences between these cosmetic solutions. Dental bonding offers much quicker treatment and is best suited for patients who have small imperfections such as chips and cracks in their tooth enamel.
Patients who choose dental veneers must be committed to their treatment. This is because veneers are long-lasting and require further tooth preparation. Dental bonding may be a more economical option for patients because bonding material is directly molded onto teeth. On the other hand, dental veneers last much longer for a more permanent cosmetic restoration.
What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?
- Match the color of natural teeth
- Create straighter and more uniform smiles
- Improve the bite
- Protect injured teeth from further damage
Our veneer treatment is personalized to the needs and goals of each patient.
Can I replace my old dental veneers?
Yes, if you have veneers that have become dull or damaged over time, we can provide a replacement. Because dental veneers are durable and last for many years, they will not require many repairs or replacements.
