Having a healthy smile is a reflection of your overall health. When teeth are bright and white, we feel better and we smile more. Studies have shown that smiling is a physical act that excites the brain to produce more “feel good” chemicals like dopamine. Smiling, especially when you have bright white teeth, has also been shown to give you that edge in professional and social success.
If you want to keep your brilliant smile, you know there are many pitfalls that can dull your radiant smile.
Here are four tips for preserving your awesome smile.
When teeth are crooked or overlapping, you may think that the only remedy is with some form of orthodontic treatment. In some cases, this may be true. In other cases, porcelain veneers may be used to correct the appearance of crooked teeth. Here are some things that your Perth dentists will consider:
Cosmetic dental treatment with veneers can do quite a bit for your smile.
When working with veneers, we take into account the overall shape and size of your teeth. We want each tooth to have a nice overall size, width, and shape at the end of the cosmetic process, so in order to fix an overlap or misalignment, it may be necessary to cover multiple teeth.
Veneers are a simple and effective treatment to enhance your smile – to close up gaps, brighten your smile or even to fix a chipped tooth. There are two types of veneers that we use in our practice – porcelain and composite resin.
Composite veneers be fitted in one visit, while porcelain veneers will be made in a laboratory and may take a couple of weeks to be ready for fitting.
Porcelain is made from an organic natural glass material, whereas composites are made from a type of plastic artificial material.
A Smile Makeover to Boost Self-confidence
Advancement in dentistry has provided solutions for such cases – a smile makeover. Everyone is the same but are different altogether. Confusing? All humans are the same, everyone has the same anatomy or body parts. A set of eyes, pairs of arms, hands and legs, hair, head, mouth and set of teeth. But everyone knows that each individual is unique; different eye color, fingerprints are different and different set of teeth. Some are born to have a good set of teeth and some are not so lucky.
A person with crooked teeth, uneven smile, discolored or worn out teeth can have the best treatment available by going through a smile makeover.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin “wafers” of porcelain that sit over your teeth. They are custom made to fit each tooth precisely so that they fit seamlessly on each tooth without an “edge.”
They have all the characteristics of a tooth, from color graduations, natural textures, white spots, translucency, and whatever character you want in a tooth. You choose the color that you want your tooth to be and this is permanent. The porcelain does not discolor over time. They let light through so do not appear opaque, but very natural like a natural, unrestored tooth.
Porcelain Veneers – A Step to Good Oral Health Care
Porcelain Veneers are one of the treatments cosmetic dentists offer to make a person’s teeth look natural and change its appearance. Putting porcelain veneers will depend on the dentists assessment and recommendation, the patient’s decision to undergo with the procedure and the severity of the person’s teeth condition. There are cases where an individual does not want to wait for the time it takes to improve their teeth through orthodontics.
Other people may have very bad teeth that would be impossible to fix by any other dental method. It’s always best to go to a highly trained and licensed dentist for this procedure because porcelain veneers are not considered a reversible form of treatment. It will take a highly skilled and knowledgeable dental professional to do the job well and care for the veneers’ lifespan.
