Why Do You Want To Change Your Smile?
Before we get into the specifics, let’s take a moment to consider why you want to change your smile.
At Biggers Family Dentistry, we have helped countless patients create their dream smiles with cosmetic dentistry. We’ve also seen the impact this can make on their lives.
It may not be fair, but your teeth do affect how other people perceive you. Surveys have shown that people with nice smiles are considered more attractive, friendlier, more intelligent, and more trustworthy on first impressions.
This can make a difference in many situations, such as job interviews, sales pitches, or conversations with someone you are interested in romantically.
Your smile affects you, too.
If you don’t like your smile, you may not feel as confident approaching new people or applying for a job. With a nicer smile, you may be more willing to introduce yourself to someone new or to seek out an interview for a job you really want.
We can’t say how a new smile will affect you, but we have seen how it has had a positive impact for many other patients.
★ Straight Teeth Make Smiles Look Nicer
This is something you already know. It’s the reason that millions of people undergo orthodontic treatments every year. That is an option you could consider, but as an adult, you may not feel like wearing braces for years until your teeth are straight.
Dental veneers can give you the appearance of straight teeth in a matter of weeks. Now, to be clear, veneers don’t change the position of your teeth.
Instead, veneers are used to hide your teeth. Your veneers will be custom-made to fit your teeth. When they are ready, they are bonded directly to the front of your teeth.
The result is you have the appearance of a smile with perfectly straight teeth.
★ White Teeth Help Smiles Shine
There’s a reason that a vast majority of products in the toothpaste aisle proclaim their teeth whitening abilities. White teeth make our smiles look prettier than yellow, discolored teeth.
Professional teeth whitening is one way to deal with discolored smiles. This is more of a short-term solution since the whitening process will need to be repeated every so often to maintain your pearly white smile.
Dental veneers can be shaded to be as white as you would like. They also are more naturally stain-resistant than teeth, which means you can maintain your bright, white smile for longer.
★ Even Spacing Can Improve Your Smile
Some people find the gaps between your teeth to be distracting. Some people are bothered that their teeth are too close together.
Dental veneers are a way to conceal both of those problems. With the right set of veneers, your teeth can look evenly spaced and perfectly parallel to one another.
★ Repairing Chipped Teeth Is Good For Your Smile, Too
Chipped teeth happen to many people every day. You may have chipped a tooth or two in your day, and it may have changed the appearance of your smile, too.
With dental veneers, all your teeth can look complete once again.
Dental Veneers Can Give You A Complete Smile Makeover
You probably realized this already, but dental veneers can fix all of the issues mentioned above at the same time .
That is what makes them one of the most popular kinds of cosmetic dentistry that we offer in our Midlothian, VA, dentist office. To see what a difference veneers could make for you, call 804-621-2199 or fill out our online form to request a consultation today.
