Do you ever stop and think about the importance of your smile? Your smile can affect what people think of you and how you think about yourself. Many psychologists agree that smiling can reduce stress and boost your mood. A beautiful smile can also impact the type of impressions you leave on potential employers and on a first date. However, if we don’t feel confident in our smile, we are likely to smile less, causing us to miss out on these benefits.
There can be any number of reasons you feel your teeth are unattractive. They may be a misshapen, discolored, an imperfect size, crooked, or a mix of the above. These teeth issues can be caused by genetics, improper hygiene, or trauma to one or more teeth. No matter the reason for your unhappiness with the appearance of your teeth, Dr. Sands has a permanent solution: porcelain veneers.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are customizable pieces of porcelain that can be bonded to one or more of your teeth. While each veneer may be as thin as a contact lens, it can provide the most dramatic and long-lasting results of any smile-enhancing procedure. Porcelain veneers combine the advantages of teeth whitening, Invisalign®, orthodontics, and bonding into an easy and pain-free procedure.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
- Can correct the appearance of discolored, damaged, crooked, or shifted teeth
- Application is easy, fast, and painless
- Authentic color choices are available so your veneers blend with your surrounding teeth for natural results
- Achieve whiter and straighter teeth with just one procedure
- Minimize the appearance of gums and create a balanced smile
Healthier Teeth With Porcelain Veneers
While many people choose porcelain veneers because of the long-lasting cosmetic enhancement they provide, you shouldn’t overlook the health advantages of choosing veneers. Worn enamel exposes you to tooth decay, and exposed roots leave you sensitive to temperature. Porcelain veneers bond with the surface of your teeth, making them stronger and more durable than before.
