Did you know that smiling makes others think of you as more trustworthy? A study done at the University of Pittsburgh found evidence that an attractive smile caused others to not only perceive a person as more trustworthy but also more attractive as well. While this is great information, it doesn’t help you if you feel embarrassed or self-conscious about your teeth! If you find yourself covering your teeth with your hands or avoiding smiling altogether, porcelain veneers in Loveland are a fast and easy way to correct many of the imperfections you might be concerned about so that you can start smiling with confidence.
What Kind of Problems Are Veneers Good For?
You might be surprised that one dental procedure can fix so many different cosmetic problems, but that kind of versatility is one of the biggest advantages of veneers. It’s also what makes them such an ideal solution for anyone who has more than one concern about their smile.
These concerns might include:
- Yellow or Stained Teeth
- Uneven Teeth
If you have any of these issues you may have resigned yourself to a lifetime of feeling self-conscious about your smile because you wanted to avoid spending a lot of time in the dental chair. While that’s understandable, one of the other benefits of veneers is that they can completely transform your smile in only a couple of weeks.
How Do Veneers Work?
Veneers are made of a very thin, very strong layer of porcelain that is precisely matched to the color and shape of your other teeth. They replace the visible portion of the tooth while leaving the remaining supporting structure of the tooth and root intact.
At your first visit, a small amount of enamel is removed from your existing tooth to allow room for the veneer to be placed. You’ll leave that day with a temporary restoration, and will return a couple of weeks later for a custom-made veneer that will be permanently cemented to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
You’ll be able to see what the final shape and fit of the veneer will look like before it’s actually made. Also, if you feel that your teeth aren’t as white as you’d like, your cosmetic dentist in Loveland can provide a whitening treatment before your veneers are done so that your final shade is exactly what you want.
If you’d like to know if you’re a good candidate for this procedure, having a dental consultation is a great way to ask questions and have your specific needs and desires evaluated.
