Veneers may seem like a modern dental treatment, but the first veneers were actually produced in 1928 by a Hollywood dentist to alter the appearance of an actor’s teeth. Of course materials and techniques used for veneers have gone through several transitions since then!
Transform Your Smile with Veneers
Today, veneers at our Lewes, DE dental office are ultra-thin, can be customized just for you, so they blend seamlessly with your smile. We mainly use veneers on upper teeth that show when you smile. They cover the surface of your teeth and can be used to conceal a broad range of cosmetic dental flaws.
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Uneven gaps and spaces between teeth
- Slight tooth misalignments
Since they look so natural, we don’t necessarily have to place multiple veneers. In many cases, we can place just one or two to achieve the look you want.
Placing Your Custom Veneers
Placing veneers is a relatively simple process. We start by removing a very thin layer of dental enamel to accommodate the veneer. This allows space to ensure that it sits naturally against your gum line. Next, we take impressions of your teeth that will be used to prepare both your temporary and final veneers.
When we place your temporaries at our office, you will get an idea of how the final veneers will look in your mouth. At this point, you can let us know if you would like us to make any changes to the shape, size, or color before your final veneers are fabricated.
