What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that are placed on the front surface of your teeth. They are custom-made to blend seamlessly with your smile and cover various cosmetic flaws caused by trauma, injury, or previous infection. Whether you need to improve a single tooth or an entire arch, porcelain veneers can enhance your confidence and give you a camera-ready smile for any social occasion.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Natural Appearance and Fast Treatment
Porcelain veneers provide a natural appearance as they are custom-made to match the shade of your natural teeth. No one will even notice you’re wearing them! The treatment process is fast and can be completed in just two short appointments, saving you time and hassle.
Minimally Invasive and Easy to Maintain
Unlike surgical procedures, porcelain veneers are non-invasive treatments that require no aftercare or recovery time. You can maintain them easily by treating them just like your natural teeth. No special cleaning products are needed. Simply brush your teeth at least twice daily, floss daily, and schedule regular visits to our Greensburg office for optimal oral health.
Boost Your Confidence with Long-Term Results
After Dr. Kovacevic places your veneers, you’ll experience enhanced confidence in your smile. These long-lasting restorations can withstand daily wear and tear, lasting 10 to 15 years. Imagine enjoying a beautiful smile for a decade or more!

How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?
Consultation and Examination
The journey to your dream smile begins with a consultation with Dr. Kovacevic. During this initial appointment, your Greensburg, PA dentist will assess your oral health, discuss your goals and expectations, and determine if porcelain veneers are the right option for you.
Once you proceed with porcelain veneers, your dentist in Greensburg will create a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. This plan takes into account factors such as the number of dental veneers required and the desired outcome.
To ensure a seamless fit, Dr. Kovacevic will gently remove a small amount of enamel from the front surface of your teeth. This step is necessary to accommodate the thickness of the veneers and ensure a natural-looking result.
Impressions and Temporary Veneers
Next, impressions of your teeth are taken to create custom-made porcelain veneers that perfectly match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth. While your permanent veneers are being crafted in a dental laboratory, Dr. Kovacevic will place them to protect your prepared teeth and maintain your smile’s aesthetics.
Dental Veneer Placement
Once your porcelain veneers are ready, you’ll return to our Greensburg dental office for placement. Dr. Kovacevic will carefully bond the veneers to your teeth using a dental adhesive. This process ensures a strong and secure bond between the dental veneers and your natural teeth.
Final Adjustments and Polishing
After the veneers are securely attached, your Greensburg dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit and optimal bite alignment. Once the adjustments are complete, the veneers will be polished to a beautiful shine, giving you a radiant and natural-looking smile.
