America loves a perfect smile! You can’t deny it. Look around you. We are surrounded by images of celebrities with perfectly even and white teeth. This is why our porcelain veneers procedure is so popular with patients in need of a smile makeover. It’s clear that the universal ideal is a smile sporting straight, even, white teeth.
But do we ever ask why we think this smile deserves the limelight?
That’s the question that researchers from the universities of Leeds and Lancashire set out to answer with their study. The researchers took photos of models and then changed the color and shading of their teeth digitally. They then showed the photos to a group of 150 young men and women and asked them to rate the models based on how attractive they were.
The results were not surprising. The most attractive smiles were those with white and evenly spaced teeth. Researchers believe that teeth are used to judge a potential partner’s health. And a white, evenly spaced smile indicates health and good genes: perfect traits in a mate.
So if you weren’t blessed with this gorgeous smile, there’s no need to worry! At Parkway Dental Care, we can give you this smile with our porcelain veneers!
What are Veneers?
Veneers are very thin shells that look like the front of a natural tooth. These shells are designed to be placed over and hide an unattractive tooth to enhance your smile. This procedure is not a tooth replacement procedure; it simply hides unattractive traits such as:
- Chipped teeth
- Broken teeth
- Misaligned or crooked teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Stained teeth
- Cracks in teeth
- Short teeth
- Large gaps in teeth
Veneers are bonded to the tooth with dental cement so the procedure is irreversible. They can last for many years when cared for properly!
Veneers at Parkway Dental Care
At our office, you can complete this procedure in just two trips to our office. During the first visit you will sit down with Drs. Philip and Chachy Philip to discuss your desired results. Then, our dentists will remove a small portion of your enamel (a painless process). Afterwards, they will take molds of your teeth. These molds will be sent to our laboratory to create your customized veneers. Our veneers are made of porcelain- a strong and natural looking material.
Once we receive your veneers from the laboratory, you will come back to our office to have them permanently bonded to the front of your tooth.
If you are interested in learning more about this process or scheduling a consultation with our dentists, visit us at Parkway Dental Care or call us today at (407) 932-2273. Don’t wait for the perfect, attractive smile available with veneers!
