We’ve all gotten so caught up in the rush of life that certain things are forgotten and neglected. When we finally do have a second to notice, we wonder, “how did things get like this?”
It happens to our houses, cars, yards, waist lines, and our smile.
As adults, we’re pretty good about brushing and flossing regularly, right? It’s just part of our routine. Many of us have even been able to successfully avoid cavities for years, so we assume everything is fine with our teeth, until one day we look in the mirror and realize that our smile is dull and flat.
And this is not necessarily a fault of yours! Over time, teeth get worn, which can be expected, considering how often we eat. Color, or dullness, is one common issue people find as they reach middle age. Other issues are gaps, teeth that are shorter than the ideal, or tooth damage. In fact, about 80 percent of people are not satisfied with their smile, for a variety of reasons.
How veneers can help
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are placed with a specialized adhesive on the front of individual teeth. It is a modern, effective solution for improving color, crooked teeth, teeth length, chipped teeth and more.
The process of getting veneers begins with preparing the tooth or teeth. A fine layer of the natural tooth is removed to make room for the veneer, and the tooth surface is prepared. This process makes improves your smile while maintaining the natural contours and bite.
