Are you ready to make a few changes to your smile? Dr. Michael Lenz, Dr. Anthony Vattilana, and Dr. John Lenz of Wilmington Dental veneersAssociates in Wilmington, DE, explain how veneers can enhance and restore your smile.

Veneers keep imperfections out of sight

Veneers are designed to conceal noticeable flaws in your tooth enamel. Because they only cover the fronts of your teeth, veneers don't have to be thick to be effective. In fact, they're no thicker than a fingernail. The restorations are made of porcelain and look just your tooth enamel. To ensure the best fit, a very fine layer of tooth enamel is removed during your first veneer appointment in our Wilmington office. About two weeks later, you'll return and receive your custom-made porcelain veneers.

Veneers can completely change the appearance of your smile

Veneers are an excellent choice whether you have one smile issue or have several different types of problems. They're frequently recommended as a cosmetic solution if you have a chip or crack in your tooth. Veneers also hide flaws in your teeth, such as bumps or pits, and can completely change the shape or length of a tooth. Do you have a tooth that is slightly crooked or just a little too short? Adding a thin veneer instantly improves your smile.

Are your teeth still not as white as you would like, even though you've used whitening products several times? The restorations are available in a multitude of shades. Your final shade can even be lightened or darkened a little based on the color of the dental cement used to attach your restoration.

Veneers are a good option if one or two teeth have changed color. Color changes may happen if you have a large filling, had a root canal, injured your tooth, or took tetracycline in the past. Your new veneer will match your tooth color perfectly and help you feel more confident about your smile. Veneers can even close slight gaps in your smile.
