Dental Veneers Will Improve Your First Impressions [blog]

Veneers 3 | Lexington, KY - Beaumont Family Dentistry

Have you ever thought about the kind of first impression that your smile makes for you? After all, your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you. If yours isn’t presenting your best self, then it’s not doing you any favors.

Fortunately, there is a fantastic way to repair your old, worn-out smile and make it look brand new! Dental veneers are sometimes called “instant orthodontics” because of their unique ability to quickly transform a lackluster smile into a gleaming work of art.

Dr. Takacs and her dental team at Beaumont Family Dentistry have been using veneers for decades to help patients from Lexington, KY and the surrounding area smile confidently again.

Let Your Smile Work For You

Imagine for a moment that you are searching for a new job. If you’re a recent college graduate or a victim of downsizing, then you may be all too familiar with this scenario.

First impressions are everything when walking into a job interview. Not only do you need a firm handshake, but your smile is going to speak volumes about you – like it or not. If your teeth are in such a shape that you’re embarrassed to smile, your potential employer is going to notice.

Likewise, if you smile and all they can see is a mouth full of gray, chipped, uneven, unsightly teeth, then that is also going to say a lot about you. Even though it doesn’t seem fair, you will be judged on the quality of your smile.

Here’s another scenario for you to think about. After many years off the market, you’re suddenly a part of the dating scene again. It’s hard enough getting up to speed with the way dating is handled these days (with the internet, social media, speed dating, etc.) without also having to worry about your appearance.

While Dr. Takacs can’t do anything about your receding hairline, she and her team can help with your smile. Take a good hard, look in the mirror. Would you date someone with your smile? If the answer isn’t a firm, “Yes!”, then you need to visit one of our three offices soon.

In either scenario – the job search or the dating scene – your drab smile can be replaced with a beautiful, white, even smile in just two visits using dental veneers from Beaumont Family Dentistry.

Veneers Give You a Celebrity Smile

If you’re not familiar with veneers, they are thin shells of porcelain that we custom-fit to the front of your teeth. They give us a quick way to repair teeth that are cracked, chipped, stained, gapped, worn, or uneven.

Once they’re in place, no one will know they’re not your natural teeth. They will look beautiful, function just like your natural teeth, and give you a Hollywood smile that you’ll be proud to show off anywhere.

Beaumont Family Dentistry uses several lines of high-quality porcelain veneers, including Empress, e.max, and Lumineers.

Most of our veneers require a small amount of your tooth enamel to be removed before placement. Even though they are very thin, your tooth must be modified slightly to ensure a comfortable, beautiful fit.

Lumineers veneers are known as minimal-preparation veneers, meaning that little or no modification needs to be done to your teeth to place them. They are ultra-thin, yet strong and durable.  

We will examine your teeth and mouth, then discuss your veneers options in detail so you can decide which ones are best for you and your situation.

Getting Veneers is Simple

No matter which veneers you choose, Dr. Takacs and our crew will make sure that you’re completely happy with them. We’ll take digital impressions so that your new veneers can be made to exact specifications. We’ll also use a special chart to select the proper shade and translucency of veneer for you.

When your veneers are ready for placement, you’ll return to our office. We will lightly etch each tooth, then apply a bonding agent to cement the veneer into place.

Our dentist will hand trim and adjust each veneer as needed to ensure that they fit comfortably and give you a beautiful smile.

And if you’re a little nervous about the whole process, or just don’t like being at the dentist in general, we offer three different types of sedation that will help you relax and take your mind off your procedure.

Dr. Takacs, or one of our other experienced dentists, will be happy to sit down with you and detail all the benefits of veneers. We make it easy to get a beautiful, new smile.

There’s no reason to make a bad first impression when meeting someone new. Call any of our three area locations today to schedule a complimentary cosmetic consultation.
