    Are you hiding your smile from the world? Do you freak out when you have to speak in public? Maybe going as far as to cover your mouth with your hand?

    You should look into veneers. Tooth issues happen in life and you shouldn’t suffer from it. A veneer consultation is the first step back towards confidence.

    But what are veneers? Not sure they’re for you? We’ve put together this guide to veneers and their benefits below.

    What are Veneers?

    Porcelain veneers are ceramic devices that hide teeth defects. These thin sheaths of medical-grade porcelain create a “new” tooth surface.

    Veneers hide defects and the process is quick with no recovery time. At the first appointment, the orthodontist will make a mold of your teeth to create personalized veneers.

    At the second appointment, they’ll fit the veneer over your defective tooth (or teeth) and you’ll be on your way. s

    Benefits of Veneers

    Veneers are less complex to apply and wear than crowns, which can easily pop off. They’re cheaper and don’t turn your mouth into a silver or gold grill.

    They’re made to blend in with your natural teeth, so no one will know you got work done.

    They’re Made for You

    One of the best things about dental veneers is that they’re made just for you. A dentist can make you a new row of teeth or fix one problem area.

    They cover things like misalignment, cracked teeth, large gaps, chips, and unsightly discoloration.

    Your dentist will color match your teeth or you can combine your veneers with a teeth whitening treatment.

    They Last

    What are veneers going to cost you in the long run?

    Thankfully, with proper treatment, porcelain veneers last up to fifteen years.

    “Proper treatment” isn’t anything special or expensive, but things like

    • Not chewing hard things (plastic pen caps, nails, jawbreakers)
    • Actually flossing regularly
    • Using soft-bristled toothbrushes
    • A night-guard if you grind your teeth
    • Routine Checkups
    • Non-fluoride toothpaste
    • Avoiding tobacco products

    Basically, you treat your veneers like your existing teeth. It’s as easy as that.

    They’ll Increase Your Confidence

    The first thing people stop doing when they’re unhappy with their teeth? Smiling. Porcelain veneers can bring your smile back and even some happiness.

    Yes, that’s right. Smiling (even if you force yourself) tricks your brain into thinking you’re happy.

    Getting veneers can bring back your confidence allowing you to show the world your beautiful smile.

    You Can Finance
