Veneers are synonymous with achieving the perfect smile, but their appeal goes far beyond modern dentistry. A bright smile’s importance and power are deeply rooted in history and culture. Your veneer dentist, Dr. Apel, understands this and has the skills and experience to give you a timeless smile.
At Designing Smiles, we specialize in transforming smiles with veneers, and we’re here to help you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
What Your Veneer Dentist Offers
Veneers are custom-made shells designed to fit to the front of your teeth. They can correct imperfections such as staining, cracks, gaps, or even minor misalignments. So, if you’ve ever felt hesitant to flash a full, confident smile, veneers could be the answer.
- Immediate transformation: Veneers offer an immediate transformation. Rather than waiting months or even years for braces to shift your teeth into place, Dr. Apel can give you the smile you’ve always wanted in just a few visits.
- Easy maintenance: Maintaining veneers is as simple as caring for your natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and check-ups are all that’s needed. This ease of care makes them a favorite for those wanting a low-maintenance solution.
- Durability: With proper care, veneers can last up to 15 years or more. They are resistant to staining, meaning they stay white and bright, even if you enjoy the occasional coffee or wine.
- Customizable: Each veneer is custom-made to fit the shape, size, and color of your teeth. This means they achieve your unique smile vision, look incredibly natural, and no one can tell you have them.

The Historical Significance of Straight, Bright Teeth
- Ancient Egypt: As far back as ancient Egypt, people sought to enhance their dental aesthetics. Egyptians used a mixture of ground pumice and wine vinegar to create a rudimentary toothpaste for whitening their teeth. The desire for straight, white teeth has deep historical roots.
- Greco-Roman influence: The ancient Greeks and Romans valued dental beauty, as evidenced by historical texts describing teeth whitening and alignment methods. They used abrasive powders and even toothpaste recipes to achieve their desired smiles.
Cultural Significance Across the Globe
- Eastern cultures: In many Asian cultures, straight, white teeth have been associated with purity, beauty, and overall well-being. Teeth have been seen as a reflection of one’s character, and efforts to maintain dental aesthetics have been deeply ingrained in various societies.
- Western culture: In modern Western culture, having a straight, white smile has been linked to youthfulness, attractiveness, and success. The entertainment industry, in particular, has played a significant role in promoting the importance of dental aesthetics, leading to a surge in cosmetic dentistry procedures, including veneers.
