You’re scrolling through your Instagram feed. As you continue scrolling, you start to notice how many of your favorite stars have perfect teeth.
What’s their secret to getting their teeth so pearly white?
It’s all thanks to veneers, an easy, safe, and affordable type of cosmetic dentistry that can transform your smile.
Some of your favorite stars, from Tom Cruise to Catherine Zeta-Jones have veneers.
But veneers aren’t just for Hollywood darlings — they can improve your smile, too!
Keep reading to learn more about veneers, who they’re for, and what you need to ask your doctor before considering getting them.
What Are Veneers?
It’s a common misconception that veneers are like crowns or dental implants. However, they’re quite different.
For instance, those other procedures are often intended to restore rotting or damaged teeth.
Veneers, on the other hand, are porcelain caps that improve the aesthetics of your smile by going over the front of your natural teeth. Some dentists may also use veneers to cover gaps between teeth.
Who Should Consider Veneers?
Porcelain caps may be a great choice for Hollywood celebrities who spend much of their life posing on the red carpet. But it’s just as viable for you, too.
Porcelain veneers are for anyone considered about the physical appearance of their teeth. And make no mistake, over time, the appearance of your teeth will, indeed, change.
Even if you’re great about brushing and flossing, your teeth will naturally darken due to the inclusion of certain foods and beverages in your diet.
What Are The Benefits?
The biggest benefit for getting veneers is a brighter, more natural-looking smile.
While there are some methods of teeth whitening you can do at home, they won’t always give you the results you’re after. Your teeth may become a few shades brighter, but they won’t look as natural or bright as veneers.
A better smile isn’t the only benefit, though. You’ll begin to feel more confident about your smile, making you more attractive to others.
What About The Cost?
It’s understandable that you may feel nervous about such a procedure — especially when it comes time to pay your bill.
But don’t worry, getting veneers is quite affordable. And since they tend to last well over a decade with proper care, it’s best to think of the procedure as an investment for your teeth.
If you have dental coverage through your healthcare provider, your provider may cover some or all of the costs.
