In today’s society, first impressions are everything. People are said to form judgments within milliseconds of meeting new faces! From clothing choices to our pearly whites, every aspect of our appearance helps strangers form opinions of us instantaneously.
It’s no surprise that our smiles are incredibly important in portraying a favorable image. Teeth can play an important part in increasing our self-esteem if they are celebrity-like: pearly white, and perfect at every angle. Well, luckily, unlike wearing million-dollar Oscar outfits, the ability to smile like a celebrity is available to everyone through the procedure of dental veneers!
If obtaining straight, white, flawless teeth is something that is important to you, talk to your dentist about veneers. Veneers were invented, no surprise, for the stars of 1930’s Hollywood by Dr. Charles Pincus. So for the past 80 years, almost all the red carpet A-Listers you see on TV have been getting veneers.
So how exactly are veneers done? They are “razor thin slices of porcelain bonded to the front and sides of your teeth so they look perfect in shape, color, and become the ‘face’ of your mouth. And what’s more, they can fix dental problems such as “discoloration, teeth that are worn down, chipped or broke teeth, misaligned teeth, or teeth with gaps in between them.” If you are experiencing any of these issues yourself, or you want that award winning white smile just like your favorite celeb, set up a consultation with your dentist to discuss the best option for you and your pearly whites.
