Porcelain Veneers

When it comes to your teeth, little imperfections can take a big toll on your confidence and the overall beauty of your smile. 

Dr. Edward Narcisi has decades of experience concealing imperfections and delivering picture-perfect smiles with porcelain veneers.

We digitally design and mill same-day veneers at our Monroeville, PA, dental practice. We can also help you preview your results.

How Do Porcelain Veneers Work? Understanding the Basics

Porcelain veneers are dental restorations that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to address mild to moderate cosmetic flaws. These wafer-thin shells are custom-made from tooth-colored porcelain which mimics the translucency and light-reflecting properties of enamel. As a result, porcelain veneers look just like natural teeth.
Once they are placed, dental veneers blend in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth, providing a stunning Hollywood smile.

The Ins and Outs of Porcelain Veneers From Dr. Narcisi Himself

The Center for Dental Excellence in Monroeville offers porcelain veneers to patients who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their smiles. The treatment process involves designing the right size and shape of veneers to create the most beautiful results. Veneers can cover discolored teeth, fill in gaps between teeth, and enhance misshapen teeth.

What Will My Veneers Look Like?
Taking the Guesswork Out of Dental Care 

Our office in Monroeville, PA, is equipped with modern smile design technology, allowing you to take an active role in planning your veneer treatment. During your consultation, we will digitally scan your smile and create a 3D mock-up of your results. This is a collaborative process in which we can make adjustments based on your preferences and give you the precise results you are looking for.

You can even meet with our lab technician to preview the color of your veneers and change them to your liking. In many cases, we can also fabricate temporary veneers for you to try on directly. Once you are completely satisfied with your mock-up veneers, we can prepare your teeth and create your permanent veneers.

I started going to Dr. Narcisi last year to correct years of dental problems I’ve had and have always had an intense fear of dentists. I immediately felt at ease from the receptionist to his assistant to Dr. Narcisi himself. Always gentle and keeping me in the loop on the course of action being taken. A little high price wise, but worth it just for the incredible people working there!

Dr. Narcisi Is wonderful! He makes your visit feel like visiting family. Always very welcoming and caring. His staff is just as friendly too. I have been going to this family practice since I was a kid, his dad took care of me first and when he retired, his son took over and has been caring for me ever since! My parents have been using the practice longer than I have. We are life long patients and will continue to be. Would recommend them to everyone and anyone!!!!

Porcelain Veneers vs. Bonding

Dental veneers can be made of a variety of materials, but the two most common types are porcelain and composite resin (which is applied to the tooth in a process called dental bonding). Our dentist uses IPS e.max® porcelain to porcelain veneers, and the results have the following advantages over bonding:


Composite veneers can deliver excellent aesthetic results, but this material doesn't have the same lifelike properties as porcelain. And while porcelain veneers are naturally resistant to staining, composite veneers are not. Porcelain veneers can also reflect light in the same way that natural teeth do, so they seamlessly blend in with the surrounding teeth in your mouth. 


Porcelain is far stronger than composite resin. Porcelain veneers can resist the force of your bite without chipping or cracking, but composite veneers are more prone to damage. If you want to enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about harming your cosmetic work, IPS e.max porcelain veneers are likely the best choice for you.


Composite veneers don't keep their strength and appearance as long as porcelain veneers do. With a good oral hygiene routine and regular checkups with your dentist in Monroeville, your porcelain veneers can last 15 years or longer.

Not Sure If You're Ready to Commit to Veneers? Bonding Can Be a Great Way to Help You Decide

As we have explained, composite veneers can't provide the same caliber of results as porcelain veneers. However, they can provide similar results, and can ultimately help you decide if you would like to eventually have a more premium upgrade.

Two big advantages of this approach are that bonding is less expensive than porcelain veneers, and it doesn't require any alteration of your tooth. So if you decide you preferred the way your smile looked before, the procedure can be easily reversed. We can even provide teeth whitening before you receive your bonding in order to get a very clear preview of what a premium smile makeover could eventually provide.

What to Expect  During Same-Day Veneers Treatment...

We understand taking time away from your busy schedule is challenging, so we work hard to make treatment as convenient as possible. In fact, our practice in Monroeville, PA, offers treatment in a fraction of the time as traditional methods by crafting veneers in-house. Learn what you can expect during the procedure:

We digitally design and mill beautiful, durable same-day veneers in our office.
We digitally design and mill beautiful, durable same-day veneers in our office.


During your first visit, our dentist will perform an examination and prepare the tooth or teeth for treatment. We remove a small amount of enamel (less than a millimeter) so the veneers have room to lay flush with surrounding teeth. 


Once your teeth are fully prepared, our dentist will take impressions of your smile. We send these along to our expert ceramist to craft your veneers based on the specifications of each tooth.


Our dentist oversees the dental veneer production with our in-house milling device. The machine precisely carves each restoration from a custom selected shade of IPS e.max porcelain. In most cases, they are ready the very same day. 


When your custom dental veneers are complete, we will inspect the look and fit and make any necessary adjustments. After you and the dentist are fully satisfied, we bond them in place with special dental cement. 


Veneers involve little to no recovery time, so you can return to your normal routine almost immediately after leaving the office; however, you should wait for any anesthetic to wear off before eating. 

In some cases, we might recommend that your veneers be made at a dental laboratory. We can discuss your options during your first visit.

We are happy to accept flexible financing plans through CareCredit® to make treatment more affordable. We can discuss all of your payment options when you visit our office.

Caring for Your Porcelain Veneers

Maintaining your new smile is easy. Just follow these simple instructions to ensure your dental veneers last as long as possible:

Be Mindful of What You Chew

While IPS e.max dental veneers are notably strong, they are still vulnerable to damage when placed under extreme pressure. It is best to avoid chewing ice, hard candy, and other foods that could exert too much force on the veneers. 

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Practicing good dental hygiene is vital since veneers will not prevent tooth decay, gum disease, or other oral health problems. Continue to brush at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and floss once a day.

Visit the Dentist Regularly

Attend biannual checkups at our Monroeville practice so we can examine your veneers and clean your teeth and gums. If we notice that it is time for a replacement, we can often provide a new veneer on the same day.
