You have a major meeting coming up, and you want to make the best impression. Will your smile flaws make a difference? Studies show they could, as at least a third of the new people you encounter will notice the condition of your teeth before anything else. To address your imperfections, your cosmetic dentist recommends porcelain veneers. As you continue reading, you’ll learn why this is the procedure you’ve been looking for!
Porcelain Veneers Explained
Porcelain veneers are thin, ceramic shells that are custom-made to fit over the teeth in the smile zone. They mask such flaws as gapped, misaligned, crowded or stained teeth.
Here are the steps to the process:
- First, a thin layer of enamel is removed to allow for the veneers to fit properly.
- Bite impressions are then taken and sent to an in-network lab that will fabricate your new veneers.
- While the permanent veneers are being created, you’ll be fitted with a temporary set to protect your teeth.
- When your finished fixtures are ready, you’ll return to your cosmetic dentist’s office to have them placed.
In just two visits, you’ll have the smile of your dreams!
Porcelain Veneers – More Than Just a Smile Improvement
Along with improving the aesthetics of your smile, your new porcelain veneers have a major effect on your overall wellness. By providing an even bite, they allow for better digestion of your food.
Furthermore, the noticeable improvements to your smile enhance your confidence, which has an indirect effect on your total wellness. When you look better, you automatically feel better because of the increased production of the following hormones:
Generally considered to be “happy hormones,” the above listed help to fortify your immune system and yield greater health benefits.
Will the Veneers Last?
A final benefit of porcelain veneers from your cosmetic dentist is they are created to last up to 10 years. The key to their longevity, though, is how well you care for your teeth. Thus, you should be sure to brush and floss at least two times a day to clear away bacteria and prevent decay.
Also, visit your dentist every six months for preventive care. While you’re there, your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned and examined to make sure your veneers are in the best shape and there are no threats to them or your oral health.
Porcelain veneers offer a gateway to vastly improving your image, dental function and self-esteem, so reach out to your cosmetic dentist to turn your life around today!
