At one time or another, you’ve probably seen a building being renovated. In some cases, the biggest change is a new facade, yet it’s amazing how that one thing can completely change your view of that location.
Did you know that you can do something similar for your smile? By making a change to the “facade” of your teeth, you could completely change how you feel about your smile and how other people perceive your smile.
How? You could get dental veneers, one of the cosmetic services available at Highland Advanced Dental Care.
As we will explain, veneers can make a dramatic difference in you smile, and they might just give you a little more confidence as well. To learn more about this versatile and transformative service, call our dentist office in Highland Township, MI, at 248-329-3552 or contact us online.
Your Smile Can Make A Difference
When you feel good about your teeth, you are more likely to share your smile with others. On the other hand, if you don’t like something about your teeth, then you may feel embarrassed or ashamed. As a result, you may not smile as much as you would like.
If you met someone who rarely smiled, would that affect your impression of that person? It might, and a couple recent studies support that idea.
A few years ago, Kelton Global, conducted a survey about smiles. The results revealed that people consider someone with a nice smile to be more likely to be confident, successful, and trustworthy.
Looking at this another way, USA Today surveyed single American adults a few years ago to ask what factors look for in a long-term romantic partner. “Teeth” was the most common factor listed by both men and women.
How Veneers Can Change Your Smile
Earlier, we described veneers as a versatile service, and now we will explain why we said this.
Veneers can be used to fix all of these issues:
► Crooked teeth
► Crowded teeth
► Chipped or broken teeth
► Discolored teeth
► Gaps between teeth
► Worn down teeth
How can veneers fix each of these problems and even multiple problems at the same time? Like we said earlier, veneers are like fixing the facade of a building.
You can get a veneer for a single tooth or you can get a set of veneers to change your entire smile. Each veneer is a thin piece of porcelain, roughly the size of a fingernail. Rather than moving your teeth like orthodontics do or lifting set-in stains like teeth whitening does, veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth.
In other words, veneers are designed to conceal your teeth to give your smile a better appearance.
Veneers are made of porcelain. This gives them the appearance of natural teeth when they are bonded to your smile. This porcelain can be shaded to give you a completely white smile or they can be shaded to match the rest of your natural teeth.
Likewise, veneers can be designed to conceal spaces between your teeth or to repair teeth that have lost a little something over the years.
How To Get Veneers
The first step with most cosmetic procedures is a consultation with a dental professional.
We want to examine your teeth and mouth. We want to make sure your teeth are healthy before we begin any cosmetic procedure.
This also is an opportunity to discuss what changes you want to make to your smile. This can help us let you know if veneers or another service can help you achieve your goal.
If you are a good candidate for veneers and you decide that this is what you want, then we can discuss how to move forward.
Many times, this means preparing your teeth. This may involve removing a thin layer of enamel from the front of your teeth (to make room for your veneers to fit), then making an impression of your smile. This impression will be used to custom-design your veneers so they fit just right and give you the appearance of the smile that you want to see when you look in the mirror.
The process for getting veneers may take a few weeks, but the final result can lead to a big difference in your smile.
And based on what we’ve seen in our office, it may change how confident you feel about smiling, too.
