If you have been hesitant to flash your smile freely due to cosmetic imperfections, you are not alone. Most people do not possess a “Hollywood smile,” and it is very common to feel a bit self-conscious about issues such as crooked, gapped, or discolored teeth. Fortunately, advances in cosmetic dentistry have made a beautiful smile attainable for everyone. Porcelain veneers offer you a chance to achieve a dazzling smile typically reserved for A-list Hollywood celebrities.
As one of Bucks County’s top cosmetic dentists, Dr. Jennifer Kalochie has been very successful at improving patients’ smiles using porcelain veneers. She works with the finest dental labs in the country and uses state-of-the-art techniques in order to deliver an exquisite restoration that blends in seamlessly with your natural teeth. Please call 215-493-3388 to schedule your initial veneers assessment.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, wafer-like shells made out of a material which has the same appearance as your natural tooth enamel. Dental porcelain mimics the translucent properties of tooth enamel and as a result, your veneers will accurately replicate the luster of your natural teeth. They are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. Porcelain veneers can alter the size, shape, length, and color of your teeth. Due to this versatility, they are often an integral component of a smile makeover.
Dr. Kalochie has achieved excellent results using porcelain veneers to:
- Close gaps between teeth
- Correct uneven or irregularly shaped teeth
- Cover surface defects
- Brighten discolored teeth that are resistant to tooth whitening treatments
- Improve the appearance of crooked or misaligned teeth
- Protect chipped, worn, or broken teeth
Porcelain veneers are also highly durable, ensuring that your new smile will last for many years. Approximately 95% of all porcelain veneers restorations are still in place after 11 years.
Why Choose Dr. Kalochie
Many dentists do porcelain veneers in their offices, but there are very few that have the experience and extensive training in occlusion (bite mechanics) that Dr. Kalochie has in order to deliver aesthetic results with functional predictability. As a result of her training, she is able to predictably design dental restorations that not only look good, but function in harmony with a balanced bite and properly positioned jaw joints (TMJs). This is particularly important when restoring entire mouths and placing porcelain veneers to ensure that you can speak and chew comfortably and that your porcelain veneers will hold up over time.
Dr. Kalochie has been providing patients with exceptional dentistry for more than 22 years. She is committed to delivering compassionate, one-on-one care that will exceed your expectations and leave you satisfied. With proper care, your functional and beautiful .porcelain veneers will last for years to come.
