It’s often said that smiles are contagious. When someone smiles, we often feel the urge to smile, too. We’re taught from birth to laugh and smile, so it’s a huge part of the way we socialize with other people. Furthermore, researchers say that smiling can improve your mood, boost your immune system, and make you appear more attractive and approachable.
The problem is that lots of people don’t feel like smiling, and it’s not because they can’t. Many people are embarrassed about how their teeth look, and so they avoid smiling as much as possible. This can lead to anxiety, avoidance behaviors, and even depression. Some of the common reasons people avoid smiling is because their teeth are:
Chipped or broken
Stained or discolored
Angled or have significant gaps
Suffering from significant tooth decay
If you’re worried about the way your teeth look, we can help you at MediDental Care in Astoria, New York. Through the application of dental veneers, we can give you the bright smile you desire.
What are dental veneers?
If you’re not happy with your teeth, and you want a bright white smile, dental veneers can help you achieve it. A dental veneer is a thin layer of resin or porcelain that sits over your tooth. Essentially, they are like shells that cover your existing teeth and look just like regular teeth.
Dental veneers are a fantastic way to get the smile you really want, and they also provide the following benefits:
If you’re worried that the veneers will be too noticeable, the good news is that they will look just like natural teeth. They are specially made to look like teeth, and the color will match your surrounding teeth.
If you feel pain in your teeth when you have hot or cold foods, you have increased sensitivity. Though dental veneers don’t get rid of this sensitivity, they can reduce it.
Even though veneers are a thin shell, they provide extra protection against damage for the teeth they are covering.
No more stains
Natural teeth can become stained when we eat and drink certain foods. Dental veneers won’t stain no matter what you eat.
Though it will take a few sessions to install your dental veneers, the good news is that the whole process is fast, convenient, and pain free.
The most important benefit of all, of course, is that dental veneers can result in more self-confidence. With veneers in place, you can smile when you want without feeling any shame.
If you’re unhappy with your smile, dental veneers represent a convenient and cost effective way to get the smile you desire. If you’re ready to reveal a brighter smile, book an appointment online or over the phone with MediDental Care today.
