It always happens, doesn’t it?
You are having an important dinner party and for the past three days you’ve been planning the perfect menu, cooking as if a food critic is peering over your shoulder, and decorating to put Martha Stewart to shame. The night of the party finally arrives, you’re dressed to kill, your guests have arrived and are showering you with compliments; everything is simply perfect. Then you bring them to the dining room and… there, on your flawlessly decorated, linen-covered dining table you’ve laid out the chipped, stained, scratched, and completely mismatched dishes of your college days.
Now, what do you think that your guests will remember? Will it be your magnificent floral arrangements? Not a chance. Will it be your gourmet meal and the accompanying wine? Don’t bet on it. What they will remember, and remind you of until the day you die, are those less than spectacular dinnerware.
Of course, you wouldn’t really set your table with damaged and discoloured dishes and utensils. So, why would you greet the world with a less than flawless smile?
Recent medical research has revealed the importance of oral health and hygiene; your dental health can have a significant impact on your health; but what most people don’t know is how the appearance of their teeth can affect how others assess your physical health.
Perfect Teeth = Perfect Health
Imperfect Teeth = Imperfect Health
You may be in perfect health, but if your teeth are chipped, stained, or slightly off-kilter everyone you meet – friends, colleagues, and prospective employers – might assume that your health is not the best. And when you’re looking for a job, you don’t want to give the impression that you’re sick days might outnumber your work days.
Here at Bradford Family Dentistry, we want to make sure that your teeth will always make a great first impression. So, we’d like to introduce you to Lumineers Dental Veneers, a new procedure that has replaced traditional veneers 1-877-283-0497.
Like traditional dental veneers (which have been around since the 1980s), Lumineers can be applied to your teeth to cover stubborn stains, fill in minor chips, reduce gaps between your teeth, and can even be used to adjust misalignments that aren’t serious enough for braces. But there the resemblance ends.
Lumineers are ultra-thin – only a fraction of a millimetre thick – but they are much more durable than traditional veneers. In fact, Lumineers have proven to last well over 20 years without needing repairs or replacement. The process involves bonding dental-grade porcelain to the enamel of your teeth, resulting in a marked improvement in their appearance and ensuring a strong and sturdy bond.
The whole procedure is virtually painless and takes next to no time to complete. Because Lumineers can be applied directly over your existing teeth, they often don’t require the removal of any part of the tooth so there’s no need for anesthesia or temporary veneers. This makes them a good alternative to traditional veneers. You can go to your appointment and be back to work all on the same day; and best of all, you’ll be able to show off your dazzling new smile. And drink a glass of water without the danger of an anesthetic-related incident.
