Are you tired of feeling self-conscious because of imperfections in your smile? Your smile is one of the first things people will notice about you, and also one of the things they will remember most. When there are noticeable imperfections, it can be difficult to muster the confidence you need to vie for the promotion at work, or to ask out that cute girl you met. It can even be difficult to enjoy time with friends not knowing if they’re distracted by the flaws you wish could be changed about your smile. Fortunately, you can do something about those imperfections, and it doesn’t involve making a wish or any kind of magic. It involves calling your cosmetic dentist, to learn how porcelain veneers could give you a confidence-inducing smile!
How Do Veneers Work?
Most people have heard of porcelain veneers, but few realize just how quickly or effectively they can actually hide a number of imperfections. In fact, for many patients, veneers are all that is needed to create a dream smile.
- In most cases, the cosmetic dentist will first recommend a consultation, to better understand what you dislike about your current smile as well as your hopes for improvement. Measurements or digital scans may also be taken, to help determine the size and shape of your future veneers.
- Then, the dentist will likely need to gently prepare your existing teeth for the veneers, in order to help them adhere well and to fit smoothly within the rest of your natural smile. That is unless you go to a cosmetic dentist that specializes in no-prep veneers, which require little to no preparation of the existing teeth!
- Usually patients will wear temporary veneers after this step, while waiting on their permanent, custom porcelain veneers to arrive. However, some dentists now offer such fast treatment that temporary veneers aren’t even necessary.
- Finally, once the veneers have been placed, you can smile confidently, knowing people are looking at you and your beautiful smile!
