Have you been underestimating the power of your smile?
In a recent 2013 study, researchers found that smiling is directly related to your physical and mental health. Not only can smiling make you feel happier, but the simple act can bring certain physical benefits like slowing down the heart and reducing stress. In fact, research also suggests that preventing people from frowning can help alleviate depression.
With news like this, it’s hard not to flash those pearly whites.
However, one-third of Americans have also reported that they are unhappy with their smile. This means that over 33% of Americans may be resisting the urge to smile because they are self conscious about the appearance of their teeth.
Improve Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
With the holidays around the corner, and friends and family visiting, now is the perfect time to enhance your smile with porcelain veneers.
Because of its light reflecting properties, porcelain, in the form of veneers, also known as laminates, offers the most natural looking way to enhance the overall appearance of your smile. Veneers are the go-to procedure for patients who want to dramatically improve their smile.
Porcelain veneers are a permanent procedure that hides an unsightly tooth and can last up to 10 years. Veneers can hide a number of dental imperfections such as:
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Wide gaps between teeth
- Misshaped or unattractive teeth
Porcelain Veneers: Quick, Easy & Painless
Porcelain veneers are a pain free procedure that requires two dentist visits. During the first visit you will be able to customize your veneers by picking the size, shape and color. Then, our dentist will remove a tiny fraction of the tooth’s enamel to make room for the veneers.
This step is pain-free, but anxious patients can elect to use anesthesia. After some of the enamel has been removed, our dentist will take a mold of your teeth to send to the lab where it will be used to craft your veneers. Temporary veneers will be placed to protect your teeth while we wait for the veneers.
Once we receive the veneers from the lab, our dentist will remove the temporary veneers and use dental cement to permanently place your customized veneers.
