Revitalizing Your Smile
Smiles are often compared to sunshine, brightening a room or even someone’s day. Unfortunately, plenty of people are embarrassed by their smiles and unsure how to gain confidence in their grin. Well-known solutions like braces and whitening treatments don’t always fit a patient’s lifestyle and can’t fix every imperfection.
Thankfully, this doesn’t mean that a beautiful, confident smile is out of reach. Veneers are a great treatment option that can provide you with a bright, natural smile in just a few visits. Placing a veneer is simple for the experienced dentist such as Dr. Farless. It involves shaving a very small amount of enamel from your teeth, taking a mold to send to the lab, and securing the veneer onto the desired teeth. If you decide on this treatment option with Dr. Farless, you’ll be able to customize the color, shape, and size of your veneers. The entire process takes just a few visits to the dentist—a pretty small time investment for a revitalized smile! This versatile treatment can solve many dental imperfections.
