Veneers: Achieving Confidence One Smile at a Time


Your smile is your first moment of connection with new friends, colleagues, or romantic partners. A broad and confident grin lets them know that you’re interested in who they are and welcomes them in. Veneers are a wonderful way to amplify that moment, and to gain confidence in other areas of your life. Today’s cosmetic dentistry makes achieving this next level of physical self-assurance even easier.

What are Veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shields molded to look like a natural tooth. They’re applied by removing a small amount of your natural tooth’s surface and binding the new material permanently. While they do require a financial investment, their payoff is immeasurable. And most last for up to a decade.

While veneers are sturdy and don’t stain like natural teeth do, maintaining good dental health is important, including brushing twice a day and flossing regularly.

The Dental-Confidence Connection

One of the wonderful things about this kind of cosmetic dentistry is that they can correct many aesthetic issues without more intense intervention like braces. Cosmetic dentistry has grown quickly over the past decades, and your dentist can use veneers to solve an array of issues, including:

        • Cracked and broken teeth: Accidents happen, and sometimes natural teeth break. Veneers are a safe and effective way to correct dental issues that arise from a sports mishap or basic clumsy moment.
        • Crooked teeth: Veneers are able to make teeth look straighter through the way they’re shaped and applied to your smile.
        • Stains: Not everyone is blessed with a naturally vibrant, white smile. In fact, few are. When applied to stained teeth, veneers cover up those imperfections and give you a flawless smile to share with others.
        • Gummy smile: Sometimes the proportion of tooth surface to gum is out of balance, making teeth look small and gums overbearing. Veneers can make your teeth look longer and more in balance, and also boost dental health by protecting your gums.

Beginning your investigation into whether veneers are right for you is as easy as booking a cosmetic dentistry consultation. Your dentist will work with you to make the path to a healthier-looking mouth as effortless as the smile you gain in the process.
