Do you have chipped or crooked teeth?
The aesthetics of your smile may be reflective of your oral health. If you have chipped, cracked or missing teeth, your smile may be at risk of developing a more serious dental health concern. A beautiful smile is often a healthy smile.
One or multiple teeth can be transformed by porcelain veneers. They are durable, low-maintenance and natural-looking. Porcelain veneers can be used to treat multiple dental concerns. Dr. Drew Shulman and our team can provide in-office cosmetic dental treatments to restore your smile at our Philadelphia dentist office. We provide porcelain veneers for patients looking to close gaps between teeth, brighten their smile, and more.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
There are also multiple benefits that porcelain veneers offer patients. Porcelain veneers:
- Look and feel natural
- Protect against discoloration
- Preserve natural tooth structure
- Cover chips, cracks, and discoloration
- Are simple to maintain
Because dental veneers are created from porcelain material, they can be color matched and can reflect light. Their material offers a cosmetic restoration that can make you forget that you even have them bonded to your teeth.
Porcelain Veneers: What to Expect
Porcelain veneers are crafted from thin shells of dental ceramic which are reflective and color-matched to natural teeth. Dr. Shulman will remove a small amount of tooth structure from the tooth or teeth that will receive the dental veneers. After teeth are prepared, molds of teeth will be taken to create custom-fit veneers.
Before a final restoration is constructed, patients are fitted with temporary veneers. After two to three weeks, the permanent veneers are bonded to prepared teeth. Dr. Shulman will make any necessary adjustments for fit and to ensure that you have a stable bite. Your porcelain veneers will be permanently bonded to teeth and polished for a natural look.

What’s the difference between porcelain veneers and dental crowns?
Porcelain veneers are applied to the front of the tooth. Dental crowns cover teeth like a cap. Both can be used for cosmetic dental purposes, but dental crowns are considered a restorative dental treatment.
