Do you want to change how your smile looks? You can trust Dr. S. John Salivonchik to give you stunning results. At every stage of care he will put your needs first, beginning with a customized, comprehensive smile design.
What is a smile design? It’s a treatment plan that combines your own ideas with Dr. Salivonchik’s years of expertise. Going forward, he will refer to it as the treatment process gets underway.
As Dr. Salivonchik himself explains in this video, a lot goes into making a customized smile design, including a consideration of what’s right for the patients’ age.
Here’s what you can expect from the treatment process. First, Dr. Salivonchik will look at your teeth and assess your needs. Then, he’ll spend some time talking to you about your specific goals. Most patients seeking cosmetic care have a good idea of what they want to achieve—or goal is to help you get there.
Once we know what you want, Dr. Salivonchik will explain your treatment options. For some patients, it’s possible to give you the results you’re looking for with one service. For other patients, it may take a combination of services. Regardless, if you have any questions about what we recommend, don’t hesitate to ask. We want you to be comfortable with the plan we recommend.
Our cosmetic services include:

If you’ve ever considered porcelain veneers, you may already know that it takes two appointments to transform a smile with this unique cosmetic dentistry service. That being the case, we’d like to use this post to address what you can expect from your first appointment.
But first, what are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are made from very thin pieces of dental porcelain. They’re designed to cover imperfections the patient wants to hide, like stains, chips, slight misalignment, and more. Each set of porcelain veneers is specially designed and crafted to meet the unique needs of each patient.
During your first appointment, Dr. S. John Salivonchik will spend much of the time looking at your smile and talking to you about the results you’d like to see. If you have any examples of smiles you like, like a photo or magazine clipping, feel free to bring it in. Coming to understand your needs and wants is a big part of what this first appointment is all about.
Your first appointment will also involve a certain amount of tooth preparation. For your porcelain veneers to look like a natural part of your smile, they have to lie flat against your teeth. For that to be possible, a small amount of tooth enamel must be removed. As part of your first appointment, Dr. Salivonchik will gently buff your teeth until enough enamel has been removed.
An impression of your smile will also be taken during your first visit, and a temporary set of veneers will be applied to your teeth to protect them. These temporary veneers won’t be customized the way your final set will be.
Do you want to transform your smile with porcelain veneers? Schedule your first appointment today. Dr. Salivonchik’s Whitehall dental office is located in Lehigh Valley and serves patients from Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, The Poconos, and surrounding areas.

In our last post, we talked about Invisalign clear braces, one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services available at Dr. Salivonchik’s Whitehall office. Today, we’ll highlight another great cosmetic dentistry service our patients can take advantage of—porcelain veneers.
The Difference Porcelain Veneers Can Make
If you’ve ever hid your smile because of flaws like cracks, chips, stains, or misalignment, then porcelain veneers may be just what you need to breathe new life into your smile.
Porcelain veneers, which are made from thin discs of high-quality dental porcelain, work by covering the front of front teeth, hiding imperfections in the process. They can be cared for just like natural teeth, with regular brushing and flossing. What’s more, because porcelain veneers can be custom-shaded, you can look forward to your porcelain veneers blending in with the rest of your smile.
Let Dr. Salivonchik Boost Your Smile and Your Confidence
Are you ready to see what kind of difference porcelain veneers can make in your life? Call Dr. Salivonchik’s Whitehall dental office to schedule an appointment. During your appointment, Dr. Salivonchik can talk to you about the porcelain veneers process and address any concerns you might have.
Let us help you revitalize your smile by calling us today. Our office serves patients from Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, The Poconos, and beyond.
