People of a certain age often spend time in front of the mirror critiquing what’s gone, what’s deteriorating, or what they never had. While there are certain parts of aging that simply cannot be overcome, one feature you can always upgrade is your smile. You can feel and look younger than you are, thanks to the beauty of customized porcelain veneers.
The Benefits of a Porcelain Veneer Smile Makeover
Your smile is open to all sorts of changes. You could choose multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures to give you one big smile makeover. Or you could select one procedure that does the work of many – porcelain veneers.
Here are just some of the benefits you get from a veneer smile makeover:
- Wider smile
- Bigger smile
- Elongated teeth
- Stain resistant
- Look younger
- Look healthier
- Look smarter
- Diminished fine lines around the mouth
- Restored lip volume
And besides making you look happier, your new teeth will make you feel happier too. There isn’t much that can create an instant self-esteem boost like a smile makeover. When you see your upgraded smile reflected in the mirror and realize what a transformation that change has created, you’ll be happier than you’ve ever been.
Personalize Your Porcelain Veneers
All veneers are chip resistant, incredibly strong, and last for decades with daily upkeep and regular visits to your Rye, NY, cosmetic dentist. What you undoubtedly want at this age, at any age, is a smile that is precisely right for you. Veneers are always personalized to the patient, so they are the most flattering in all characteristics and look as natural as possible. The application of veneers can also vary and some patients who are interested in this procedure are good candidates for minimal or no-prep porcelain veneers.
- Color: Everyone wants white teeth, but there are many shades of white to be had on the porcelain spectrum. Going for bright white like a celebrity may be your goal, but a slightly less bold color might be better for your skin tone and the whites of your eyes. You and your cosmetic dentist will discuss all the particulars to select the most appropriate color for your smile.
- Shape: Every veneer is unique, but every set of veneers is designed to blend into each other so your entire smile looks natural. This may mean that you want a square shape or more rounded teeth. Some veneers may need to be built up to make up for absent or smaller teeth. The proportions are all meticulously weighed before the final porcelain shields are ordered.
- Length: Some people want to elongate their short teeth, others want to reduce the length of their oversized teeth. Veneer length is carefully calibrated to work with the size of your smile so it looks like those teeth belong in your mouth and have always been there.
You can love your smile again – or love it for the first time – with porcelain veneers. Find out if you’re a good candidate for this procedure by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Chi Fu at Chester Hill Dentistry in Rye, NY.
