I had been bleaching for a while, and I got tired of that. And I was a little concerned about what it was really doing to my teeth, if, you know, ultimately if you keep bleaching, what am I going to have left? You know? Time is marching on. So, I talked to Dr. Handel about getting some veneers, and he gave me pricing, he gave me some ideas, his opinion on what we should do. And I, me, I always expand on that. And I mean, people say I have the best smile. I mean, it's so nice to be able to just smile in pictures and not ever be concerned about, ”Oh, do I need to bleach my teeth first?” You just... it's seamless, it's just wonderful.
With Dr. Handel, it's just such a pleasant experience. It's like talking to your brother or a relative or something. We talked about what different colors I could go with if I wanted to match the bottom, if I was going to eventually do the bottom. And everything turned out perfectly. People said to me, ”I can't believe that you're going to do that to your teeth,” and I've never been happier. I would highly recommend it to anybody that they, if they're unhappy with their teeth, if they're a little bit crooked or a little bit small, you can make them look perfect or not so perfect. They can look exactly like your own teeth. So some people... for me, I was like, I don't want them to be like, look like false teeth or something. I want them to look real because they are just covering my real teeth.
So, he can... he's so good at managing what you want and succeeding at that. It's just incredible how if you have an idea, he'll say, ”Okay, we could do this or that,” and he'll give you a few options. And then you just go with that, and I was just thrilled from the minute they were inserted.
If you have multiple smile flaws, you could spend months – or even longer – correcting them with different cosmetic dentistry procedures. Or you might be able to conceal them all in a single treatment with dental veneers in Wayne. They can hide stains, small cracks, chips, gaps, worn teeth, and slightly crooked teeth.
In addition to their versatility, veneers offer:
- Many Years of Wear – High-quality porcelain is known for its strength and stain resistance. Most patients wear their veneers at least a decade, and often much longer than that.
- A Natural Look – Porcelain also closely resembles natural tooth enamel. We’ll match the color to your other teeth, so your veneers blend in seamlessly with your smile.
- Fast Results – You will typically receive your veneers in just two or three visits to our office.
- Easy Maintenance – You can keep your veneers looking great simply by brushing, flossing, and visiting us regularly for professional dental cleanings.
- A Minimally Invasive Procedure – A veneer is a far more conservative treatment than a crown. Our dentists will remove only a tiny amount of enamel from your teeth.

Prepare for Veneers With Other Cosmetic ProceduresDoctor Brian Handel on Dental Veneers Read Transcript
We use veneers in a number of ways to transform smiles, especially smiles that are unattractive. The veneers that are used today are more lifelike than ever before, and we can use them to create more or less any smile a patient wants.
So a porcelain veneer is made out of porcelain. It's a thin shell of porcelain. If you imagine a fake fingernail, it's very similar to that. Once it's bonded onto a tooth, it's rock solid, so patients can eat what they normally eat. Their diets don't have to change. And the ultimate goal for us is that someone can look at your teeth that have been veneered and they don't know it's been veneered because it's so lifelike.
Our veneer process is very detailed in that we want our patients to know what the outcome is going to look like. So we image their smile photographically. We do something called a diagnostic wax-up, where they can see on a model of their own mouth what their teeth will ultimately look like. And any patient that has gone through the veneer process in our practice really knows what the final product will look like before they ever start.
But in our practice, I think one of the things that sets us apart is that we offer a warranty for life on all the procedures that we do. The only thing that we request and require from our patients is that they keep their end of the bargain, which is that they keep their regular recalls. So they have to maintain their teeth in the proper manner. And if they do so, and they keep their regular checkups, we will stand behind the treatment that we do for them.
In some cases we may recommend a procedure called crown lengthening, in which we’ll use a laser to painlessly remove a small amount of gum tissue. This exposes more of the white part of your tooth (the crown) and makes it easier to attach your veneers. If you’re using veneers to change the color of your teeth, you may also want to undergo a professional teeth whitening treatment first. We’ll then match your veneers to your whiter smile.
