Our teeth are always under an incredible amount of pressure. Whether or not you tend to grind your teeth, your teeth will wear down. If you don’t take care of your teeth, they will start to wear down even faster. Either way, porcelain veneers can be tremendously beneficial. Let’s look at why you should think about getting them.
Whenever you need porcelain veneers put in, it’s time to visit your friendly neighborhood dentist. Unfortunately, many people suffer from dental anxiety. Even so, you’ll only need to sit through a quick procedure to place the veneers on your existing teeth.
Improves Your Smile
Porcelain veneers go a long way towards improving your smile. Plus, you can still have your teeth professionally whitened by your dentist, or having new fillings and crowns put in as well. We understand how important your dental health is to you – it is important to us, too!
Now that you have a better-looking smile, you’ll also find yourself brimming with newfound confidence. Most of the people you meet will notice how you smile when they first meet you, and unfortunately, it’s one of the things most closely tied to a first impression. That first impression might be inaccurate based on how your teeth look. Well-placed porcelain veneers can hide broken teeth and any cavities that might dull the brightness of your smile.
We’ve touched on the idea of dental anxiety, but it doesn’t just apply to when you visit your dentist. Poor dental health can affect our mental health as well, since anxiety and depression are common conditions in patients who are self-conscious about the appearance of their teeth; however, studies have shown that porcelain veneers can help relieve the anxiety and depression you feel about your teeth.
You may have attempted to whiten your teeth on your own, only to be disappointed with the results. Once you have porcelain veneers, you’ll start to notice that they resist any stains that might otherwise form on your teeth. Stains on your teeth could contribute to the spread of plaque and tartar in your teeth, so make sure you keep up with your dental hygiene regimen – brushing and flossing your teeth, using mouthwash, and scraping your tongue, too.
