While many cosmetic processes may be non-essential but they still can offer the recipient of a new, healthy smile a significant positive boost to self-esteem and confidence, which can have lasting effects for both work and personal life. It’s an interesting spiral upwards but making cosmetic improvements to your smile can potentially lead to patients taking better care of their teeth and gums overall. One common procedure, dental “veneers” can provide an excellent solution to cosmetic flaws in your teeth that make you self-conscious about the way you look. These veneers cover some of your teeth with porcelain in order to even out their appearance, replace flaws, and closing up gaps or uneven spaces.

Your smile speaks for itself, allowing you to communicate without words and interact with the world around you, hopefully with a sense of carefree self-confidence. This is a social primal interaction that goes back millions of years. However, if not always excited about flashing your pearls in public, and now on endless video calls, you’re not alone.

Though we may feel too shy (or proud) to admit it, many of us would like to correct dental imperfections and lift the over look of our smiles. Feeling anything but happy with our smile’s appearance can dampen our self-esteem, fuel social anxiety, and stand in the way of professional, personal, or romantic opportunities.

Newer issues around oral hygiene – such a wearing a mask all the time hoping to dampen the spread of the latest coronavirus outbreak – lead to all kinds of dental disasters such as tooth decay, receding gum lines and bad breath. As if we didn’t have enough to worry about in the midst of this pandemic, now there is concern that new patterns of working, eating and mask-wearing, in addition to a decline in overall health and fitness, may also be causing an increase in dental cavities. One big factor is the reluctance to visit a dentist for regular cleaning. If anything, now is a very important time to up your dental health routine, especially if you’re overdue for a dental cleaning or periodontal treatment.

This procedure is typically performed on a poorly shaped tooth, or too better match two adjacent teeth, and is done using an electric device or file to reshape teeth by removing enamel from teeth.
