Veneers

Are you uncomfortable with your smile because your teeth are discolored, worn down, chipped or broken or misaligned? We have a great solution for you at Christiana Dental Center in Newark, DE. With porcelain veneers, you can have a brand new smile!

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored material that will cover the front surface your teeth and improve your appearance. They are bonded to the front of your teeth by the dentist and can change the color, shape, size or shape of your existing teeth.

Porcelain veneers are stain resistant and reflect light like your natural teeth. Best of all, it typically takes only a couple of appointments to get your veneers.

Preparation

To prepare a tooth, the dentist at Christiana Dental Center will remove about 1/2 millimeter of enamel, which is about the thickness of the veneer. If necessary, an anesthetic will be used. The dentist will then take an impression of your tooth to be sent to the laboratory where your veneer will be made.

Bonding

First your dentist will ensure that the fit and color of your new veneer is perfect, and make any necessary adjustments. Then, to prepare your tooth for the veneer, it will be cleaned, polished and etched to roughen it for the strongest bond. A special cement is then applied to the veneer and it will be placed on your tooth. Once properly positioned. the dentist will apply a special light beam causing the cement to harden. Finally, any excess cement will be removed and your bite will be checked.

Our Happy Patients

"The staff here is fantastic- everyone is friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. R himself is straightforward, honest, and does very clean work. I had a large cavity close to my gum line on a premolar, the filling is so clean and well matched, I cannot tell where my tooth ends and the filling begins. To that point, my insurance here was a breeze! Ramona sat with me, detailed all the fillings I needed, and what would and would not be covered so I was well prepared."

"I scheduled an appointment online for my broken crown. Guess what? They fixed my tooth in the same day. Not only that, they took care of a much-needed root canal. The office has all kinds of neat new gadgets that make procedures and their various aspects more accessible to the patients. Dr, Recktenwald works with two assistants who are very pleasant. They called me later to see how I was doing. He's quick so you don't spend a lot of time in the chair. It was an all-around positive experience. :)"
