The Secret to a Beach-Ready Smile

Smiling young woman at beachSummer is here! If you’ve been hitting the gym or laying out in the sun for a perfect tan, don’t forget to get your smile ready for the beach. You don’t have to worry about spending several days in the dentist’s chair to get the results you want. You can have a picture-perfect smile in as few as 2 weeks with porcelain veneers. Here are 3 reasons to invest in the smile of your dreams with veneers.

1. Correct Many Issues Quickly

Veneers continue to rank among the most common cosmetic procedures every year. Although they are thought to be expensive, they can be the most affordable option if you want to correct many issues at once. You won’t have to undergo several or complex treatments to cover the appearance of stains, chips, or gaps between teeth. 

Attaching veneers to the front surfaces of the teeth visible when smiling improves their overall color, size, and shape. After an initial consultation and any preliminary treatments, your dentist can transform your smile after just two appointments.

2. Choose a Minimally Invasive Method

Porcelain veneers involve a minimally invasive procedure. Your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel to create a strong bonding surface between your teeth and veneers. 

Porcelain allows veneers to be thinner than ever before, so less of your tooth is removed during the application process. This allows you to maintain more of your tooth structure while also making the procedure less invasive. 

They’ll take an impression of your mouth to create your restorations. This can take a couple of weeks, so you’ll have to wear temporary veneers while you wait. 

Once your final veneers are sent back to your dentist, you’ll return to have them bonded to your teeth. You’ll walk out of your appointment with a dazzling smile that’s meant to last.

3. Enjoy Long-Lasting Results

The average lifespan of a veneer is about 10 years, but it’s not uncommon for them to last for much longer. Various factors affect their life expectancy, like your oral hygiene routine and lifestyle habits. You can ensure your veneers thrive for a decade or more by brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist regularly.

Benefits of an Attractive Smile

If you’re not happy with the way your teeth look, your insecurities can stop you from feeling your best. Investing in veneers is a great way to boost your self-esteem and make you more approachable. Research has found attractive teeth are associated with youth, intelligence, and success. 

You’ll ensure your smile is giving the right impression, whether you’re at the beach or the office.
