Feeling Unhappy With Your Smile? Veneers Could Be The Answer

It might seem surprising, but numerous studies have been done on the impact that smiling has on us. What has been found is that the more than we smile in life, the more likely it is that we will be happy, successful, and long-lived. Smiling is a fundamental part of our psychology, and babies even smile before they are born!

Do you feel awkward about your smile?

Given how fundamental smiles are to our species, it’s no wonder that so many people feel pressure when they aren’t entirely happy with their own smiles. In fact, according to the American Association of Orthodontists, about one third of adults around the country aren’t happy with their smiles.

One of the biggest reasons a person might not be happy with their smile is because they're not happy with their teeth. The truth is that very few of us are born with perfect teeth, and even though there’s a stigma associating bad teeth with poor dental hygiene, this is an unfair assessment.

There are a number of factors affecting the appearance of our teeth, including:

The good news is that if you don’t like your teeth and your smile, we can help you here at Wellness Dental. Porcelain dental veneers are a fantastic solution for these kinds of problems and can give you the smile that you truly desire!

How can dental veneers help you?

A dental veneer is a thin porcelain shell that is bonded to the teeth. It fits just like a cap over the tooth and is colored to look just like normal teeth. The great thing about dental veneers is that they can cover up damaged, stained, and crooked teeth. In fact, they can change the size and shape of your smile!

Furthermore, dental veneers are a cost effective way of fixing the smile that you’re not happy with. Despite their shell-like appearance, they are actually very durable and have been known to last for a few decades when looked after correctly. For people who also like their red wine, porcelain dental veneers are also resistant to staining. This means that you can have the bright smile you’ve always wanted.

Dental veneers versus other options

Of course, there are alternatives to dental veneers, but how do they really compare and why should you seriously consider veneers instead?

Dental implants are popular because they are strong, durable, and long-lasting. The teeth sit on top of titanium screws that are screwed into the jawbone. This makes them more permanent and also helps with other potential problems, such as bone loss and other periodontal conditions.

While dental implants have certainly become more popular, they are more expensive than veneers. This is a challenge for many people who are on a budget. They also replace existing teeth, so these will need to be removed first. This means that there will be pain, discomfort, and recovery time.

Dentures are another option, and compared to dental implants they are quite affordable for many people. They are ideal for people with one or only a few missing teeth, but to have a full set of dentures installed, teeth may need to be removed first.

Where dental veneers excel is at covering existing teeth and changing their appearance in a cost effective manner. They are a great option for hiding blotchy, stained, or damaged teeth without the need for the removal of existing teeth. This also means no recovery time and no pain.
