In today’s society, first impressions are everything. People instinctually form judgments within milliseconds of seeing a new face for the first time. From clothing choices to our pearly whites, every aspect of our appearance helps strangers form opinions of us instantaneously.
It’s no surprise, then, that our smiles play an incredibly important role in portraying a favorable image. The appearance of our teeth can greatly influence our self-esteem level—positively or negatively. If teeth are misshapen, dull, or discolored, it can affect your confidence and make you much less likely to greet people with a smile. Unfortunately, this can come off as unfriendly. However, if your teeth are pearly white and perfect at every angle—like a Hollywood celebrity—you’ll be proud to flash your dazzling smile and will make a much better impression. Luckily, unlike pricey designer gowns and million-dollar diamonds, the ability to smile like a star is available to everyone through dental veneers!
If obtaining straight, white, flawless teeth is something that is important to you, talk to your dentist about veneers. Veneers were invented in the 1930s by Dr. Charles Pincus to improve the smiles of Hollywood’s motion picture stars. Subsequently, over the past 80+ years, almost all red-carpet A-Listers in the entertainment industry have been getting them.
So how exactly so veneers work? Veneers are razor-thin slices of porcelain bonded to the front and sides of your teeth so they look perfect in shape and color. 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 just want that award-winning white smile like your favorite celeb, set up a consultation with your dentist to discuss the best option for you and your pearly whites.
