Porcelain Veneers


Porcelain veneers—which are sometimes referred to as dental veneers—are an attractive and durable solution for many minor cosmetic dental imperfections.

Cosmetic dentists, Dr. Joe and Dr. Charles Frye have extensive experience helping patients achieve bright, natural-looking smiles through the application of custom-crafted porcelain veneers. We are passionate about smile aesthetics and customer satisfaction, and we would love to discuss your vision for a perfect smile and help you make that vision a reality.

Conditions Treatable with Porcelain Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin slivers of porcelain that are individually crafted to match your adjacent natural teeth in shape, size and color to ensure a seamless smile. This versatility allows porcelain veneers to be used in the treatment of cosmetic dental issues including:

  • Cracked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Spaced or gapped teeth
  • Misshaped teeth
  • Unevenly sized teeth

Your Porcelain Veneers Consultation

During your porcelain veneers consultation, we will discuss what you don’t like about your smile and whether porcelain veneers are the best option for you.

Using photos, computer simulation and models, we can conduct a smile analysis and show you what the results of your porcelain veneers procedure would look like. We may also recommend laser dentistry treatment to enhance the shape of your gumline for a perfectly contoured smile.

Porcelain Veneers Process

The process for designing and placing your porcelain veneers requires two visits.

First, impressions of your teeth will be taken for use in conjunction with computerized modeling to create your custom porcelain veneers. Then a thin layer will be removed from the surface of your teeth to allow for the placement of your temporary veneers and eventual porcelain veneers.

After your porcelain veneers have been crafted, you will return for their placement. Prior to bonding your porcelain veneers to the surfaces of your affected teeth, we will check for size, shape and fit. Your porcelain veneers will also be tinted to match your surrounding teeth for a flawless, naturally appealing smile.

Porcelain Veneers Care

One of the main benefits of porcelain veneers is that they look, feel and function like your natural teeth. Once your porcelain veneers have been bonded to your teeth, you can eat and drink as you normally would.

Porcelain veneers are also resistant to staining and easy to clean. With a proper dental hygiene routine that includes brushing at least twice daily, flossing, and regular check-ups and professional cleanings with the Pittsburgh dentists at Dentonics, your porcelain veneers can give you a vibrant smile for years.

If you live in the Pittsburgh or  Allison Park, Pennsylvania, areas and would like to learn if porcelain veneers are right for you, please contact Dentonics to schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Joe or Dr. Charles Frye. We welcome you to visit our dental home, and we would love to make you part of our extended dental family.
