Stop Hiding: Veneers Can Make You Proud of Your Smile

Imagine, for a moment, what your life would look like, if each time you glanced into the mirror there was a beautiful smile staring back at you. How many ways would your life be different if you were actually proud of your teeth? Would you be more proactive in seeking out that promotion, or ask the cute girl at the coffee shop out on a date? Maybe you wouldn’t shy away from having your photograph taken at parties, or keep your mouth closed between every bite when you’re out with your friends. Well, porcelain veneers can help boost your confidence, by providing you with a smile of which you will be proud.

Why Porcelain Matters

Porcelain veneers are made of the same dental porcelain that is used to create long-lasting, seamless restorative crowns. In fact, your teeth’s enamel is the strongest substance in your whole body, and dental porcelain is 90 percent as strong and stain-resistant as it is. This is great news for your smile, both initially and in the years following cosmetic treatment, because it means your veneers should age gracefully with you, the same way your natural teeth will.

How Modern Veneers are Different

Thanks to advances in technology, the veneers can now be created much thinner in the past without sacrificing strength. This has greatly decreased the amount of preparation your teeth will require before the veneers can be placed. Many patients are greatly relieved by this news, as they do not want to damage healthy tooth enamel, which serves as a protection for your inner tooth, just to address cosmetic concerns.

Though thin, veneers can effectively color permanent staining that can’t be treated with teeth whitening, gaps between the teeth, misshapen or disproportionally small teeth, jagged edges, and many other concerns in very little time. Plus, the procedure of placing is them is minimally invasive. If you have spent years feeling insecure because of your smile, ask your cosmetic dentist how veneers could help.
