It’s Like A Face Lift For Your Teeth!

Posted by: Dr. Sirakian     Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

In today’s world, there exist an abundance of treatments for the sole purpose of improving ourselves. It’s a fairly judgmental world we live in: from working out, to buying nice clothes, to feeling nervous about a crooked smile, everyday we find new issues with our appearance, which is certainly damaging to self-confidence.

Luckily, if it’s an imperfect smile you suffer from, there is an easy fix. Porcelain veneers are a definite option for anyone wishing to take their smile to the next level of perfection. Veneers are smile-changers for sure! They are tailored to fit your natural teeth shape and colors. By consulting with your dentist, you can find the best option for you and your unique lifestyle.

Porcelain veneers are “razor thin slices of porcelain that are bonded to the front and sides of your teeth, and the end result is unstained, no gaps, movie star smiling pearly whites.” It may seem as though they are a minor change but if you stop and think about how many things revolve around our smiles, it can make a huge impact on your self-confidence and even the way people treat you. Disregarding everything else, if you have nice teeth and a healthy smile, your confidence will soar. Shouldn’t your smile be as bright as your personality?

Today, many people who are insecure about their teeth imperfections are setting up dental consultations and going through the porcelain veneer process to perfection. The porcelain is extremely strong and thus durable for many years, which means this process can really last a lifetime if properly taken care of. They look natural and can enhance not only your beautiful smile, but your confidence as well. If you have any further questions regarding the process or want to learn more about these “facelifts for your teeth” contact us today to set up a consultation!
