Rejuvenate Your Smile With Veneers
Veneers can improve:
- Discolored teeth — either because of root canal treatment, stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride, the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth, or other causes
- Teeth that are worn down
- Teeth that are chipped or broken
- Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped
What are porcelain veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are attached to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. They can be made from porcelain or resin-composite materials and are bonded and cemented to your teeth. In most situations, a minimal amount of tooth structure has to be removed to maximize the esthetic outcome. In select situations, a no-prep veneer is possible...

Stress Fractures but No Pain. What Should You Do?
We are committed to helping patients avoid pain and emergencies. No one wants a broken tooth, but it is even worse when it happens before or on a vacation, at a special family function, or during an important business meeting. While we cannot predict when and how a tooth will break, there are clear signs that a tooth may need proactive care. When you come in for a routine dental wellness visit, our team will evaluate each tooth for signs of stress and fatigue. We take digital photographs to document the condition of each tooth so that we can review all possible options. We want to partner with you to optimize your dental health and avoid the consequences of a broken tooth — PAIN.
The question is to wait or to treat. The choice is ultimately yours, but we want our patients to understand all of their options. Like a crack on a windshield, we know we have to fix it at some point. Some choose to watch the crack move across while others want to fix it as soon as possible so it does not shatter the next time a stone crashes in. The benefit of being proactive is that often, a more conservative and less costly restoration can be done. Think of a hot water heater. It is far less expensive to replace it before it floods the basement...

Every fall, Jenkintown’s main thoroughfare and town square transforms into an outdoor art gallery at Jenkintown Festival of the Arts.
