Your smile is a treasure for your friends, family and everyone you meet! When you make a lasting first impression with your smile or capture a joyful moment in a photograph it’s important to feel confident and satisfied with your teeth. Dental veneers are a simple cosmetic option for patients to transform their smiles and fix minor discolorations, chips, cracks or gaps between teeth without extensive dental treatment. When you feel good about your teeth it’s easier to smile and embrace life with confidence. Give us a call at 412-364-1477 to schedule your consultation or ask us about our restorative services.

What are Dental Veneers?

Dental Patient Room

A Popular Cosmetic Option

Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells commonly made of a colormatched porcelain or composite resin that fit seamlessly over the teeth. Once placed, they can have a number of beneficial results:

  • Built to last with strong composite resin or porcelain
  • Designed and colormatched to look like natural teeth
  • Can replace the need for braces with minor tooth alignment
  • Improves the structure of misshapen teeth
  • Naturally resistant to stains or cavities
  • Whitens permanently stained or discolored teeth

The Dental Veneer Process

A Gentle Cosmetic Solution

At your appointment for dental veneers the process is gentle and results can feel almost instantaneous. A local anesthetic is not always necessary but can be applied to numb the area before treatment. Next, Dr. Mauro removes a thin coating of enamel from the teeth to make room for the custom dental veneer. After an impression is made of the teeth the dental veneer is formed and patients can assist with deciding its proper shade, shape and size. At your next appointment the custom dental veneers are cemented into place for a smile you’ll be happy to call your own!

After Dental Veneers

Maintaining Your Ideal Smile

Dental veneers are naturally resistant to stains and cavities, but maintaining a good dental health routine is important to ensure that they last a long time. Regular brushing and flossing helps reduce the risk of cavities, staining or gum disease and supports a healthier overall health. After dental veneers, it is even more important not to use your teeth as “tools” to open containers or bite into hard materials. For best results patients are encouraged to continue making six month appointments where Dr. Mauro can assess your dental health and make adjustments to your dental veneers as needed.
