Since when did looking your best become so hard?

You try to keep up with the latest fashions, or maybe spend your free time cramped inside of the gym working up a sweat, and at the end of the day it just seems like you’re not getting where you want to be.

Unfortunately, you are working out the solutions to the wrong problem. You can keep trying to achieve that flat stomach or that perfect wardrobe, but if you have a smile that’s less than stellar, none of those accomplishments will matter all that much when it comes to enhancing your appearance.

Studies have shown that people are most attracted to a healthy white smile – more than body type, eye color, or even personality. It’s just the way our brains are wired, and you can’t fool Mother Nature no matter how many hours you spend in the mall or on the treadmill. A bad smile is the kiss of death for your personal beauty, and you know it better than anyone.

The circumstances which led to your smile getting to this dreadful point would be better discussed in a different blog post (or, more ideally, face-to-face when you come in for your appointment), but suffice it to say that the problems are very noticeable.

Take a look at this list and see if any of the points ring true when it comes to the appearance of your smile:

  • Worn down, eroded teeth
  • Teeth that are broken or chipped
  • “Strange looking” teeth
  • Irregularly spaced, uneven, or misaligned teeth
  • Minor gaps between the teeth

If any of those features sound painfully familiar to you, then there is still hope for your smile yet. That’s because you could greatly benefit from a set of glamourous porcelain veneers, which will add beauty to your teeth as well as protecting them from further harm!

I can give them to you, but first, let’s learn a little more about them.

The White Knight of Veneers

There are many different types of materials out there which a Kennewick dentist can use to create a veneer, which is basically an artificial covering for a tooth (or a dental implant). I use two different kinds of materials to make the veneers in my practice, but today, we’ll talking about porcelain – or, more specifically, porcelain laminate.

This is a material known for its flawless beauty and resistance to staining. It will provide a gorgeous new shape to your smile that has been severely lacking over the years, all due to a simple treatment process.

The process for receiving a veneer is very simple. After your consultation appointment with me, I’ll create a mock-up of your smile, sort of like a cast, or an impression. This will allow me to create the veneer to fit perfectly in line with your natural smile.

Then, once the veneer has been crafted from I’ll gently and painlessly remove a tiny layer of the tooth enamel (assuming there is much left, depending on the state of the tooth in question). This gets the tooth ready for the chemical adhesive which will connect it to the veneer itself.

All that’s left is to connect the veneer to the tooth with the adhesive and allow it to create a seemingly unbreakable bond, and that’s all there is to it! You can chew, speak, and smile your heart out with a new porcelain veneer because it is strong and beautiful enough to uplift even the dingiest of smiles.

Of course, if your smile is dingy, then a porcelain veneer might stick out like a sore thumb but in reverse: It could make the rest of your smile pale in comparison. Which is why I’d recommend a teeth cleaning and a whitening treatment to go along with it. That way, you can have the best smile possible, both in terms of beauty and health!

Making Your Appointment Is Easy

Accepting treatment can be the really hard part of any cosmetic dentistry procedure, but I want you to know that you are worth having a smile that you can show off for a change; a smile that promotes easier dental hygiene; a smile that can change your life.

You can have all of this and more with porcelain veneers, but only if you believe you’re worth it.
