Be honest... When you look in the mirror, do you love the smile that is staring back at you?
Are you comfortable walking into a room full of people and smiling your biggest, brightest smile?
Is your smile a source of self-confidence or does it actually hurt your self-esteem?
If you’re considering cosmetic dentistry (specifically porcelain veneers), then the answer to one or more of these questions is probably a “no.”
When considering veneers, it’s important to understand your “why” (and be as specific as possible). What will improving your smile do for you? How will it make your life better?
In this article, we’re going to share information on porcelain veneers, and provide three distinct, “real life” scenarios where veneers would be the perfect solution.
So...what are porcelain veneers?
Simply put, veneers are one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures, as they are designed to improve the look of your teeth when you smile.
Have you ever seen someone with seemingly perfect teeth? There is a good chance you’re actually looking at their porcelain veneers!
With the thickness (or thinness we should say) of a contact lens, veneers are designed to give you the ideal shape and color for a perfect smile.
Here are a few common problems that porcelain veneers can solve:
Chipped or worn down teeth
Large gaps in between your teeth
Stained teeth that can’t be helped by whitening or bleaching
And so much more. Veneers do require removing some tooth enamel, so the procedure is not reversible. That being said, most patients find that veneers are well worth it, and can last 10 or more years with proper care.
Let’s move on to three “real life” scenarios where a person may choose to improve their smile with porcelain veneers. Do any of these sound familiar? Which one do you identify most with?
Scenario #1: Veneers before an important life event
In many cases, the desire to improve your smile is triggered by an important life event. This could be a wedding, graduation, class reunion, or one of the many other important events in life.
If you have something on the calendar months down the road and you know that you want to look nothing less than your best, now is the perfect time to give our Alpharetta, GA dental practice a call and ask about porcelain veneers.
Scenario #2: Veneers for the driven, career-minded individual
It’s no secret that when other people close to you in your career (clients, bosses, etc.) know, like, and trust you, it makes being successful a little easier. Sure, having a great smile isn’t a “magic bullet” to a successful career, but it can help.
In fact, a study in Psychology Today found that your smile is actually contagious! Here is what researchers had to say:
“The part of your brain that is responsible for your facial expression of smiling when happy or mimicking another’s smile resides in the cingulate cortex, an unconscious automatic response area.”

The bottom line: it’s good for those around you who can positively influence your career to find your smile personable, pleasant, and attractive.
Scenario #3: Veneers...because it’s just time for a new smile!
This scenario is quite common.
Maybe there isn’t a specific trigger event per se, but you’ve just realized over time that your self-confidence has taken a hit and maybe your smile is partially to blame.
Porcelain veneers can give you an entirely new, confident look by ensuring your teeth that show when you smile are the perfect color and shape. Sometimes, you just need a little something positive to turn that frown upside down.
