Fix Your Teeth’s Cosmetic Imperfections
Teeth play a huge role in your oral health and confidence. If you’re insecure about your smile because of chipped, stained, or misaligned teeth, your happiness and oral health can suffer. Luckily, at Del Kovacevic, DMD, our experienced staff offer high quality, long-lasting porcelain veneers that can restore the beauty and function of your natural smile.
Do you want to restore your teeth without undergoing any invasive procedures? Learn how porcelain veneers can improve your confidence with our detailed guide below.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Veneers are custom-made to blend with your smile and cover any number of cosmetic flaws due to trauma, injury, or previous infection. Whether it’s covering a single tooth or an entire arch, porcelain veneers can renew your confidence and give your smile an appearance that’s camera-ready for any social occasion.
At our Greensburg office, Dr. Kovacevic can examine your teeth and create a personalized treatment plan to correct your dental cosmetic flaws with porcelain veneers.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers offer several unique cosmetic benefits compared to other restorative treatments, including:
- Natural Appearance: Your veneers will be custom-made to match the shade of your natural teeth — so no one will notice you’re wearing them.
- Fast Treatment: The veneer process can be completed in two short appointments.
- Minimally Invasive: Veneers are a non-surgical treatment that require no aftercare or recovery time.
- Easy to Clean: Porcelain veneers don’t require any special cleaning products — you can treat them just like your natural teeth.
- Enhanced Confidence: After Dr. Kovacevic places your veneers, you’ll be able to smile with confidence with this long-lasting restoration.
- Long-Term Results: Your veneers can last for 10 to 15 years with proper care.
What Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?
Porcelain veneers enhance your smile’s appearance without the invasiveness of other dental treatment options such as metal braces. Veneers can correct several cosmetic issues with your teeth, including:
- Chipped and cracked teeth
- Stained and discolored teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Gaps between adjacent teeth
The Veneer Process
Dr. Kovacevic and our staff can enhance your smile with porcelain veneers in just two quick appointments at our Greensburg office. During your first visit, Dr. Kovacevic will examine your teeth and take an impression of your smile. He’ll use this impression to customize your porcelain veneers, while also discussing your oral health goals. The process for making your veneers usually takes about two weeks.
Once your porcelain veneers are ready, you’ll return to our Greensburg practice so that Dr. Kovacevic can complete the procedure. During this second appointment, he’ll ensure that the fit and shade of your veneers match your natural smile and bond them to your teeth. Once set in place, you’ll be able to leave our office and enjoy your newly restored smile.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the porcelain veneers process painful?
The veneers procedure is virtually painless due to Dr. Kovacevic administering a local anesthetic to numb your teeth and gums. This will ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort or pain during the procedure. While you may experience some mild sensitivity right after treatment, this will fade on its own within a few hours.
How do I care for my porcelain veneers?
You can treat your porcelain veneers like your natural teeth. This includes brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing daily, and scheduling regular bi-annual visits with Dr. Kovacevic at our Greensburg office. Our team also recommends using a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste without any abrasive ingredients to avoid potentially scratching your restorations.
What if my veneers are damaged?
If your porcelain veneers are damaged, it’s important to contact our Greensburg office immediately by calling (724) 836-2433. During this time, try your best to keep the newly exposed area clean so that it won’t get infected or further damaged. Dr. Kovacevic can easily replace your porcelain veneers, so you won’t have to worry about undergoing any serious treatment.
Does insurance cover porcelain veneers?
Most insurance companies won’t cover porcelain veneers since they’re considered a cosmetic treatment. Our office recommends calling your provider to get an accurate understanding of your policy. During your initial consultation with Dr. Kovacevic, he’ll be able to evaluate the appearance of your teeth to give you an accurate cost estimate of your veneers.
