How do you feel about your smile? Are you happy with the way your teeth look or do you long for a dream smile makeover? If you’re thinking about improving your smile with cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers are an excellent option to consider.
The Value of a Confident Smile
Many studies and surveys have been conducted to find out how smiles affect us and those around us. An interesting result is that smiling has a circular effect because it releases endorphins, hormones that trigger positive feelings in us, and also give others an endorphin boost when they see us smile. When you smile, you feel better, which makes others feel better, etc., etc.
How to Get the Smile You Want
Porcelain veneers are a perfect option for making over your smile. They are thin shells of translucent porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth, and because they hide your teeth, they also conceal any cosmetic flaws.
There are many uses for veneers, but here are four popular makeovers:
- Correct minor tooth misalignment – Are you living with slightly crooked teeth because you don’t want to wear braces? The solution may be as easy as placing veneers on these teeth in a way that conceals the misalignment, leaving you with a more symmetrical smile.
- Conceal chipped, cracked, or broken teeth – Dental enamel is tough, but it’s not indestructible. Over the years, teeth can chip, break, or crack, but veneers create a brand new tooth surface and a flawless appearance.
- Hide severe tooth staining – A lot of tooth staining and discoloration can be resolved with professional teeth whitening. But if whitening doesn’t work, veneers can be used to conceal staining and leave you with a fresh new smile.
- Fill in uneven gaps and spacing – If you have large or uneven gaps and spacing between teeth, porcelain veneers can be designed to cover these inconsistencies and perfect your smile.
