Wouldn’t it be great to have the utmost confidence in your smile? To know that wherever you went, you could light up a room, charming whoever you wanted to with just a flash of your pearly whites? This doesn’t have to be a dream. While there are plenty of great health reasons for taking good care of your oral health, one of the leading reasons people brush, floss, and whiten on a regular basis is to keep their smile looking fresh.
Whether you’re an avid dental health caretaker or you’ve let your routine slip, cosmetic dentistry is a fast and effective path to the smile of your dreams. One of the quickest and least invasive ways to do just this is through veneers. Veneers are extremely thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials, which are specifically designed to cover the front surface of your teeth, in order to improve the appearance of your smile. The veneers are bonded, by a dental professional, to the front of the teeth, to change their color, shape, size or length, as desired. Think veneers might be the right choice for your smile? Let’s take a deeper look.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the range of dental health activities that are aimed at boosting the appearance of your mouth, smile, and teeth. Procedures that fall under the heading of cosmetic dentistry include inlays and onlays, composite bonding, teeth whitening, dental implants, and veneers, among others. These procedures are getting more effective, widely available, and cheaper by the year, with more Americans considering a cosmetic dentistry procedure every year. The confidence that a new smile can bring will have a positive impact throughout your entire life, which is why so many people are making their dental health a priority.
What Type of Veneers Do You Need?
As one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments, veneers work quickly to change the overall appearance of your smile, and they’re incredibly effective at doing so. While most people think of veneers as a single treatment, there are actually several different types of veneers available, based on your individual needs.
These options range from higher-end permanent solutions, such as porcelain veneers, to more temporary cosmetic solutions like snap-on veneers. Other options include composite veneers and removable veneers, both of which have their specific purpose. Here at Plancich Dental, we believe in the long term smile-boosting ability of porcelain veneers. Sure, they may be a bit of an investment up front, but this investment will come back many times over in the confidence you feel in your smile, and the peace of mind you have with your new veneers.
How To Deal With Discoloration
One of the main concerns people have with their teeth is discoloration. Whether it’s from stain-heavy foods or drinks, like tea or coffee, or personal habits like smoking, your teeth will naturally yellow over the years, from the wear and tear of your daily life. This discoloration can make it seem like the hard work you’re putting into your smile is all for naught, which is why many people choose to adopt a teeth whitening practice as well.
There are plenty of options for dealing with discoloration through teeth whitening, ranging from over the counter options to full on dental professional whitening treatments. Understanding which treatment is right for you involves taking into account the level of discoloration, how much you can invest in your smile, and other personal preferences. While some people have no problem using their daily whitening strips, others simply want a one-time procedure that relieves them of worrying about their yellow smile. For the latter group, veneers are one of the best solutions.
The Best Teeth Whitening Solution
When it comes to lasting teeth whitening solutions that will keep your smile glowing without the hassle of everyday whitening, veneers can compete with any other treatment. By customly shaping the veneers for your unique smile, the dental professionals here at Plancich Dental create porcelain veneers to combat the specific issues with your smile that you want addressed. Veneers have a longer life expectancy and color stability than bonding, and they resist permanent staining from coffee, tea, or even cigarette smoking. When you decide to brighten your smile with veneers, you make a decision that will pay off for years to come.
