Do you smile easily or do you often find yourself covering your smile with your hand? Well then why not just hide that smile permanently? Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic treatment that cover smile imperfections and give you a beautiful new smile. Using porcelain veneers, Dr. Gary Henkel at Horsham Dental Elements in Philadelphia, PA, and Horsham, PA, has improved smiles for many people in the area, and he can do the same for you.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers, also called dental veneers, are a type of cosmetic dentistry in which a micro-thin layer of dental porcelain is bonded to the outer surface of the teeth in your smile zone. As such, they correct and conceal a number of dental imperfections, including:
- Stains and discoloration that will not respond to teeth whitening
- Chipped or slightly cracked teeth
- Teeth that are unevenly worn
- Teeth that are misshaped or somewhat misaligned
How are Porcelain Veneers Applied?
The first step in building your new smile is a consultation with Dr. Henkel, where the two of you will discuss your smile goals and he will examine your teeth and gums for any concerns that might need to be addressed before the veneers. Then the procedure usually requires two appointments at Horsham Dental Elements.
At the first appointment, Dr. Henkel will likely need to slightly reshape the teeth receiving the veneers, so your new smile will blend seamlessly with your existing teeth. An impression of your teeth is taken in order to create a mold for our dental lab to use as they fabricate your custom veneers. While your permanent porcelain veneers are made, you’ll wear temporaries to protect your teeth. In a few weeks, you’ll return to Horsham Dental Elements for Dr. Henkel to place your custom veneers. You’ll leave our office with a smile you wouldn’t dream of covering!

A healthy, beautiful smile is a crucial asset when it comes to expressing yourself confidently on a daily basis. If your teeth are flawed in any way – whether it be in the form of stains, uneven spacing or chips – you may feel less inclined to smile around friends, family and coworkers. At Horsham Dental Elements in Philadelphia and Horsham, PA, Dr. Gary Henkel offers the latest in porcelain veneers, allowing patients who are unhappy with the condition of their teeth to once again enjoy a brilliant smile that’s worth showing off to the world.
What are Veneers and How Do They Help?
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin layers of porcelain material that are applied directly to the surface of your teeth, custom-fit to cover the many cosmetic imperfections that may cause embarrassment. Teeth that have been stained over the years with wine, coffee or cigarette smoke become instantly lustrous and white. Odd gaps between the teeth disappear, replaced instead by even teeth that align perfectly. Porcelain veneers are a simple solution to a number of common cosmetic problems, including:
- Teeth that are too small or are misshapen
- Crooked teeth
- Staining of all levels and colors
- Gaps between teeth
- Chips and cracks
If you’ve endured years of unhappiness, constantly hiding your smile, take the first step toward beautiful, natural-looking teeth and call us today to schedule your porcelain veneers consultation. In just two office visits, Dr. Henkel can reverse decades of damage, revealing the brilliant, confident smile you deserve. From our two offices in Horsham and Philadelphia, we proudly serve patients from the entire Philadelphia PA area and beyond, including Bucks County and Montgomery County.

When you feel embarrassed about your smile, you’re less likely to be the fun, outgoing person you want to be. But with a smile makeover using one of Dr. Henkel’s cosmetic dentistry services, you can enjoy a brighter, straighter-looking smile that will improve your self-esteem.
Our cosmetic dentistry services include:
Has a dental injury, decay, or teeth grinding caused your teeth to become broken or worn? With single-visit cosmetic bonding, Dr. Henkel can reshape your smile using a putty-like resin that can be custom-shaded to match your existing tooth color, resulting in a new smile that looks beautiful and natural.
Teeth whitening is one of the most effective and most popular cosmetic dentistry services available. And at Dr. Henkel’s Horsham and Philadelphia dental offices, we offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening options. Both are an effective way of achieving stunning, professional results.
As another of today’s most popular and effective cosmetic dentistry services, porcelain veneers can help you make your teeth appear straighter and whiter, combining the benefits of cosmetic bonding and teeth whitening. What’s more, treatment with porcelain veneers can typically be completed in just two to three visits.
