Getting dental veneers offers dramatic results when it comes to smile makeovers. Most people get however many veneers it takes to cover the teeth in their “smile zone” (the ones people see at the front of your mouth). For some individuals that’s six; for others, it’s 10. But the results are the same: whiter, straighter looking teeth.
If you’re still not sure that dental veneers are right for you, here are five advantages worth considering.
1. Enhance Your Most Important Accessory
They say that your smile is the first thing people notice. Investing in whiter, straighter teeth means you can show them off without having to worry about others seeing aesthetic problems in your existing bite. Veneers give you a great reason to smile day after day.
2. Big Changes in Little Time
Porcelain dental veneers take two visits to complete (normally about two weeks apart). At the first visit, we prep your smile and take an impression. When your permanent veneers are ready to bond in place, they instantly change the way your smile looks.
3. Same-Day Options Are Available
Don’t have time for a traditional porcelain veneer? Same-day composite veneers are a great option too. The matching material is shaped by hand directly over your tooth, immediately masking any surface flaws like stains, chips or misshapen enamel. The best part? Numbing usually isn’t even necessary!
4. No Braces Needed
Some people call veneers “instant braces” because of how they’re able to mask issues like crowding or gaps in your smile. Although veneers aren’t right for all orthodontic issues, they’re safe and effective for managing minor tooth misalignment that detracts from the appearance of your teeth. The best part? You’ll get results in under a month, compared to spending 6-12 months in braces.
5. Make a Great First Impression
Some studies show that people who have whiter, straighter teeth tend to do better in situations like job interviews or promotions. The perception is that people with beautiful teeth are generally seen as healthier, happier and more successful. Although these opinions are subjective, research shows that in controlled settings, people with beautiful teeth tend to make the best impression on others around them.
