When a person is not proud of the way their smile looks, it can cause them to avoid being seen altogether. They can become more withdrawn and often miss out on many opportunities because of their fear that people may look at them in a strange way. There are some things that cannot be controlled about the way that a person smiles and how they look, but there are some things that can be done to fix a smile that is not what a person wants.
What Veneers Can Do
Veneers are considered a form of cosmetic dentistry. When people hear the term cosmetic dentistry, they may assume that it is all about the way that a person looks. This is not all that veneers can do. Before passing judgment on veneers it is a good idea to understand what they are and what they can do.
Veneers are a thin laminate that is placed over the teeth. The care of the veneers is the same as teeth without veneers. They require regular brushing and regular visits to the dentists. Veneers can last for 5 to 10 years and are reasonably priced option for the things they can do.
Veneers are typically used to cover over discolored, stained, chipped or broken teeth. They are designed to cover over any abnormalities that people may have. They can cover over gaps in the teeth.
How Veneers Help a Person
While the obvious benefit of veneers is a bright white smile that an individual can be proud of, that is not all they are doing for the person. They are helping to restore the confidence that a person has in themselves. They are helping a person present a positive first impression to others. They are allowing the person to feel like they are normal and that can help a person both physically and emotionally.
A person that has veneers will have an improved smile. They will not have to worry about their teeth being discolored or people looking at a gap in the smile. They can get others to pay attention to what is important about a person and not just what their smile looks like. For many people, this is worth much more than the price they had to pay to get the veneers.
