You may be afraid to express how much you desire a perfect smile for fear that you’ll be labeled as shallow. But studies show that your desire is not just a delusional fantasy. Instead, it represents a very legitimate urging that many people share, but are reluctant to admit. Your cosmetic dentist in Oak Hill understands this too, and offers a judgement free solution to achieving your goal of the perfect smile – porcelain veneers.


Several studies have been conducted to evaluate the importance of a perfect smile in human socialization. Here are some of the results:

  • A Lasting Impression – Nearly one-third of Americans say that the first aspect they notice about a person is his or her teeth. Furthermore, 24% say this is the trait they remember the most about people.
  • Straight Teeth for Success – Americans perceive those with straight teeth as 45% more likely than those with crooked smiles to get a job, when competing with someone with a similar skill set and experience.
  • A Nice Smile Goes a Long Way – Nearly 75% of Americans would be more likely to trust someone with a nice smile than a person with a good job, outfit or car.


A way to improve a trait that the majority of us value dearly, a perfect smile, is to consult with your dentist about porcelain veneers in Oak Hill.  They are thin pieces of material made from dental-grade porcelain that can be shaped to the contour and color of your other teeth to blend in with them.

This route of cosmetic dentistry offers several benefits that address aesthetics and function:

  • Chipped or Broken Teeth – Your dentist will apply a resin to the chipped or broken tooth and later adhere the veneer to the area to create a natural appearance. This not only improves your look, but also allows you to chew and speak better.
  • Gapped Teeth – For a gap that is not severe, veneers offer a quick solution, completely covering the gap, and creating the look of a perfect smile.
  • Stained Teeth – Another great benefit of veneers is that they can accommodate for stained teeth. At your initial consultation with your dentist, one of the specifications taken into account to craft your new veneers will be the natural color of your teeth. Therefore, all your teeth will once again be the same color. Furthermore, your veneers are more resistant to stains than your natural teeth.


Once you are fitted with your new veneers, it’s important that you treat them with the same care that you would your natural teeth. Given that they are stain resistant, it may be tempting to be somewhat neglectful with cleaning them, but if poorly cared for they can be blemished. Furthermore, you should avoid certain foods and activities like smoking.

However, if you take proper care of your veneers, you will enjoy the beautiful smile you’ve been waiting to have for years. Reach out to your local dentist to get the journey to the new “You” started immediately.
