Making a Happier, More Confident You with the Help of Veneers

Category: Blog Dental Implants

People can say looks aren’t important, but when you have cracked or broken teeth – especially in the front – it can be difficult. You often spend your time appearing sad and sullen because you are trying not to show the world your cracked or broken teeth. If this sounds like a situation that you are in, why not consider veneers?

Veneers are a cost-effective dental procedure that will help boost your confidence and get your smile back.

What are Veneers?

Before you can understand how veneers help to boost your confidence, you have to understand how veneers work. Dental veneers, or veneers for short, are thin porcelain shells that are applied to the enamel of the teeth. These shells mimic the appearance of real teeth. When applied, they cover up cracks or broken areas on the teeth and give the individual the appearance of having a full, bright white smile.

Will Veneers Help Improve My Self-Esteem and Raise My Confidence Levels?

Every individual is different, but in most cases the answer is “yes”. Veneers help increase self-esteem and raise confidence levels by improving people’s appearance, especially their smile.

Individuals are more confident and have higher self-esteem because they are able to smile more. A recent article published by Psychology Today suggests that every time a person smiles, it had a dramatic impact on the brain. This impact makes people feel happier and even feel healthier.

Considering how important a smile is to a person’s happiness and health, it is no surprise people with cracked or broken teeth use veneers. After all, they improve their smile.

What Type of Process is Required to Get Veneers?

Once you have determined you want to get veneers, you must schedule an appointment or consultation with a prosthodontist. This is the first step in the process of getting veneers.

During the first appointment, you will talk with the prosthodontist about what type of results you wish to achieve with the veneers. This discussion is necessary because it will help the prosthodontist understand if veneers will help you in achieving your desired look.

In addition to discussing what results you wish to achieve, you may also go through a brief oral examination. The oral examination will allow the prosthodontist to determine if your teeth are healthy enough for veneers, or if you should explore other options such as a dental bridge or dental implants.

If it has been determined veneers are right for you, you will need to schedule two more appointments with the prosthodontist. The first appointment is where the dentist will prep your tooth for the veneers. This step involves shaving off some of the enamel and taking an impression of the tooth, which is used to make the actual veneer.

The second appointment is when the actual veneer will be placed on your tooth. The veneer will be bonded to the tooth using dental cement. Once this is completed, the entire process is over and your cracked or broken tooth is fixed.

Boost your confidence levels and increase your self-esteem by exploring the possibility of veneers. Schedule an appointment with a local prosthodontist to discuss whether veneers can help you.
