We all know the importance of a beautiful smile. Many of us with less than stellar pearly whites often feel that there’s not much to be done for improvement. New advances in cosmetic dentistry have made it immensely easier to create the gorgeous smile you deserve. Dental porcelain veneers are a relatively easy way to update your smile. For those seeking veneers in New Hyde Park, there’s no better place to look than the caring dental team at Silverstein and Vinciguerra, General, Family, Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry. They’ll help you determine if veneers are right for you and get you wearing your most beautiful yet.
Veneers are a slim covering that fit on the front of your teeth. Veneers are made of porcelain, and they are custom-made to match the color of your natural teeth. They are created using a mold of the natural teeth. Your dentist will remove a very thin layer of enamel to make room for the veneers, and they are then glued and light cured in place. Veneers can be used to correct shape, close small gaps, and covering stained teeth. They can last from 10 to 20 years depending on a number of factors.
A great smile can have many benefits, so using veneers to cover stains or correct shape can have a world of positive effects on a person. For instance, smiling can have a positive effect on both the mood of the person smiling and a person on the receiving end of a smile. That adage of “fake it ‘til you make it” holds some truth. Turns out you can actually lift your mood by forcing a smile.
Additionally, smiling can make you look younger and thinner. It’s not entirely known why this is the case, but some studies have shown that others perceive people as being less aged and more fit when seeing them smile. With these benefits, it’s no wonder that a final benefit to smiling is that it can make you feel more confident. It makes sense that a person’s self-esteem would receive a boost if they’re feeling happier and receiving positive attention.
