A good smile says a lot about a person.
A good smile makes other people feel better when they see it.
A good smile makes the person smiling appear confident and comfortable.
And, if we are being honest, a good smile makes someone look more attractive.
Now think about your smile. Would you like to come across as uplifting, confident, and attractive when you shine your pearly whites?
Even if you didn’t inherit perfect teeth, you can look like you did thanks to cosmetic dentistry at Advanced Dental Associates.
We’ve helped many patients improve their smiles at our San Antonio dentist office, and veneers are one of our most effective services.
The Benefits Of Smiling
If you have “bad” teeth or you think you do, this can affect everything else that you do. It can affect the people around you, too.
We have seen patients who are ashamed of their teeth.
Some of them will hold up their hands to hide their mouths when they speak. Others will speak with their heads down so no one can see their teeth, although this makes them hard to understand.
Still other people try to avoid going out in public because they are so embarrassed by their smiles.
Your smile should not be a negative part of your life. You like to see your friends smile, and we are convinced that they would rather see you smiling and happy, too.
We’ve already mentioned how a good smile makes other people feel better when they see it.
But smiling actually makes you feel better, too.
Psychology Today has written several pieces about this. Smiling can help you relieve stress. It can boost your immune system.
Smiling can even make you feel better when you are feeling down. Sometimes a smile is a reflection of your mood. At other times, a smile is what you need to do to feel better.
What Are Veneers, And How Can They Help You?
If you have ever seen or worn fake fingernails, then you have some idea how veneers work.
Just like fake fingernails are attached to your nails, veneers can be attached to the front of your teeth. This simple act can transform your hand or your teeth (and therefore, you smile).
The difference is that fake fingernails might last a few weeks if you are lucky while veneers can last for decades at a time.
So, would you like to know if veneers could help you? More than likely they can. Veneers can be used to fix a wide range of problems, like the ones we’ve listed below.
➤ Crooked Teeth
If you are an adult with crooked teeth, this can affect how you interact with your co-workers as well as clients or customers. It also may affect how you approach someone you may be interested in dating or if you approach that person at all.
Veneers can hide your crooked teeth so that your smile looks like it’s filled with perfectly straight teeth.
➤ Crowded Teeth
Teeth don’t have to be crooked to affect your smile. If your teeth are crowded together, some of them may be turned at odd angles in your mouth.
The good news is that you can change this in just a few visits to our office with veneers. All your teeth are parallel to one another when your veneers are bonded in place.
➤ Gaps In Your Teeth
Do you keep your lips closed when people ask you to pose for a photo so that they won’t capture the space or spaces between your teeth?
Veneers can close those gaps, and you can show off your pearly whites in your next picture.
➤ Chipped Or Worn Down Teeth
Explaining how you broke your teeth may make for an interesting story, but you may prefer it if no one asked why your teeth look different.
With veneers, you can repair teeth that have become damaged or worn down due to an accident, bad habits (like teeth grinding or nail biting), or a bite of something that was harder than you anticipated.
➤ Discolored Teeth
Your teeth may be yellow as a result of poor oral hygiene. They can also change color from years of smoking or as a side effect from medication.
No matter the reason, veneers can be used to make your teeth as white as you would like them to be.
