Ask the Mirror on the Wall – How Do I Improve My Smile Once And For All?



Have you ever looked in the mirror and been less than satisfied with the image staring back at you?

Let’s face it; we’ve all had that sort of day. Perhaps your hair is just not cooperating, or you’ve realized outside of the store, that perfect makeup shade is not so perfect. But what happens when the reason you are dissatisfied with the way you look is because of something bigger? Namely, your smile.

Everyone wants a nice healthy-looking smile. After your entire smile is one of the first things people notice about you.
If you have not been naturally graced with the set of ivories of your dreams, fear not. There are many cosmetic options available today, that will have you smiling in no time.

Cosmetic dentistry. Two little words that mean so much. The dental industry is always on the cutting edge with growth, especially when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. The industry has come such a long way from its beginnings and continues to be inventive and grow, with new options and procedures.

More and more offices such as Lawton dental focus not only on traditional preventative dentistry but offer the latest in cosmetic procedures. One of the most cost-effective and less invasive ways to improve a smile today is with the use of porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers have been around for a while now, but they are much more realistic and streamlined than ever.
If you have issues with your smile, such as chipped teeth, discoloration, or perhaps uneven teeth that you want to be fixed but do not want to invest a lot of time and money into braces, veneers may be just what you are looking for.

Many a Wichita Falls dentist, as well as dentists across the globe, agree, if a patient is looking for a way to improve their smile, and want to do so with little to no invasive dental work involved, these types of veneers are your answer.
In the past, if you wanted to cover up stained or broken teeth, dental crowns were your only option.
These crowns differ tremendously from veneers because first off, in order to put crowns onto your teeth, the teeth would need to be drilled and filed almost beyond recognition in order to fit the crowns properly.

Veneers are the better option for smile improvement due to the fact you are not drilling into and filing down the tooth in order to apply them. The most minimal layer is subtracted from the tooth surface to ensure the veneer fits properly without any problems with eating or daily life. Clinics such as Lawton dental offer this procedure, knowing it is the smart option for their clients. Not only with the minimal to no invasive preparation but also due to the fact porcelain is a strong material that will wear well over the years with virtually zero chance at chipping or staining.

There are many people out there who would never consider a cosmetic dental procedure because they think it is unaffordable. That may be the way it was ‘back in the day’, not anymore. If you were to check around to various Wichita Falls dentists, you would find the cosmetic procedures have never been financially more obtainable.

While a cosmetic visit may not be covered under an insurance plan, dental offices and clinics offer a variety of ways to help you get that smile you’ve been dreaming of.
