Though many people want to believe it doesn’t matter, for the most part there is a direct link to the way people perceive their appearance and their level of self-confidence. Those that are unhappy with their appearance may have a lower self-esteem than someone who is confident and secure with the way they look. For those that are uncomfortable with their teeth, they may act in certain ways to avoid showing them. Avoiding a smile certainly does help to keep the teeth hidden, but unfortunately it also makes other assume that the “unsmiling grouch” is unfriendly and rather be left alone, when deep down that may be far from the truth. Fortunately, for those who want to give themselves a new and improved smile, veneers may be the answer. With only a couple dental visits, one can correct chipped, cracked or uneven teeth and give themselves the “movie star smile” they wish they’d been born with.
When considering veneers, it’s important to speak with a dentist, such as those at Alamoanadental.com. This will help the patient determine if this choice is right for them. If so, the dentist can begin the process of preparing the teeth for this “smile-altering” procedure right away. The first step in the process is to prepare the surface of the teeth by buffing a very small amount off the surface of the tooth. This is done for two reasons. First, to allow space to accommodate the new tooth covering, and also to rough-up the surface of the existing tooth to allow for maximum adhesion of the veneer. An impression is then made of the teeth to ensure the fit will be correct and look natural. The return dental visit will consist of the new tooth coverings being adhered to the existing teeth. When this is done it is considered to be permanent, as it can last for many years with proper follow up care.
No one should live ashamed of their teeth or their smile. Fortunately, there is a solution. Speak to a dentist today to learn how to get a whole new look and have a smile to be proud of. You can also connect them on Facebook.
