Porcelain Veneers: Get Your Money’s Worth Out of Your Smile

Posted on: Monday, March 3rd, 2014

For many of us, smiling is an insignificant and very underestimated daily action. We often smile, or don’t smile, without realizing the handful of benefits that come along with it. It’s safe to say that people who smile more are happier, healthier and more successful. However, people always smile more when they are confident in their smile. At Fairfield Smiles By Design, we want everyone to experience the benefit of smiling, that’s why we provide smile makeovers with our porcelain veneers.

Benefits of Smiling

With veneers, you will have the confidence to smile and show off your flawless teeth. Some benefits of smiling include:

  • Improved Health

Many studies have reported that smiling improves your general health. People who smile more have shown that doing so lowers their heart rate and stress levels. It also helps the body to produce endorphins, which is our body’s natural painkiller.

  • Improved Appearance

When you smile more, people notice. In fact, studies show that 94 percent of both men and women say that they notice a person’s smile before other important traits like their height, eyes or body. When you smile, you are seen as approachable and more attractive to others.

  • Improved First Impressions

A study by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that an attractive smile can make you seem more intelligent, interesting and wealthy to others. In this study, participants rated pictures of 8 different people and were asked to judge them on how attractive, happy, successful, interesting, etc. they seemed. The people who were judged the highest had recently undergone cosmetic dentistry.

Smile with Porcelain Veneers at Fairfield Smiles By Design

Patients who have undergone our veneers procedure have instantly felt more confident in their smile. That’s because we use veneers made from porcelain. Porcelain is the most natural looking material and creates a lustrous shine for your smile.

Our porcelain veneer procedure can be completed in two visits to our office. First, Dr. Cuevas will remove a very tiny amount of enamel from the tooth to prepare it for the veneer. Only a fraction of an inch is removed to make the fit more comfortable and less bulky looking. Then a mold of the tooth is sent to our laboratory to create the custom fitted veneer. Once we get the thin, tooth shaped shell of porcelain at our office, you will come back to have it permanently bonded to the tooth.

Porcelain veneers can hide gaps, misaligned teeth, damaged teeth or discolored teeth. For more information on how we can dramatically enhance your smile with porcelain veneers, visit us at Fairfield Smiles By Design or call us today at (203) 254-0545.
