What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are wafer thin laminates or shells of tooth coloured material (which can be either porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material) that are “cemented” to the front surface of teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance. Many dentists use the analogy that dental veneers are for your teeth what false finger nails are for your hands. In a similar manner to how false finger nails are placed or glued to your existing fingernails, veneers are bonded to the front of your existing teeth.
What problems are veneers used to treat?
Can I Get A Great Smile With Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers can hide stained and damaged teeth. They can cover gaps and crooked teeth, giving you that great smile you’ve always wanted.
Is A Great Smile Important?
One of the first things you notice about a person is their smile. A smile is a good and happy thing, something we naturally respond to. Scientists since Charles Darwin have noted that smiling transcends cultural differences more than most nonverbal body language, such as touch or gestures. Even babies who are born blind smile just as babies who have sight. This universal communication method connects us to others and enables our social relationships.
Smiling has been shown to increase trust and mutual liking between people. Smiling helps facilitate business associations, as well as friendships and romance. A confident, happy smile is important to all aspects of our lives.
Gain Confidence In Your Smile, With Dental Veneers
Smiling sends the message that you enjoy another person and are happy interacting with them. This opens the door to continued association, whether social or business. However, there is more than one kind of smile.
People who are self conscious about their teeth are much less likely to smile in an open and engaging way. Tight, closed lip smiles can send a negative message to another person that you are merely tolerating them and not genuinely enjoying their company. While this may not be true, the truth is in the eye of the beholder and a less-than-confident smile can put you at a disadvantage when it comes to your social and business life.
Dental Veneers give you beautiful, straight, white teeth that you can be confident about. Confidence spills over into every area of your life, improving your social and business life simultaneously. If you’re ready to experience the benefits of a fantastic smile, call for a consultation today!
