Are you constantly covering your mouth whenever you smile or laugh? Are you always feeling self-conscious about the state of your teeth and what other people might think or say? A smile is something wonderful to share, so if you are struggling with yours because of anxiety over the state of your teeth, it might be time to talk to cosmetic dentists like Dr. Jeffrey Alvarado and Dr. Gregorio Salinas. When you consult with dentists at The Lakes Family Dental, you can learn about porcelain veneers, a simple cosmetic option that can give you the confidence to smile and laugh again. Here are the three main reasons to consider veneers.
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are placed over the front of the teeth. As such, they are essentially an extra layer of protection and reinforcement to keep your teeth strong. Your dentist carefully grinds down the front of your teeth to prepare them for the shells, which are custom made to fit your teeth and are applied at the next visit with a special bond. Once in place, the veneers are permanent.
There is no cutting or needles necessarily involved with the veneer placement process. If you prefer, your dentist may be able to give you some sedation to relax you. The most intrusive part of the process is the grinding of the teeth in preparation for the veneers.
The greatest reason to get veneers is that they can easily brighten your smile. You choose the color of the veneers to make them as white as you please. When you smile after the procedure, you will see that your teeth look fuller and whiter than before.
There is no reason to hide your smile when you have the option of veneers. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Alvarado or Dr. Salinas by contacting our office today.
