Our smile is the first tool we have to make a great lasting impression. If some of your teeth are stained, cracked or smaller than your other teeth a permanent solution is available. At first glance this solution may seem too expensive for you. However, you may be missing out on that valuable promotion or your dream job because your smile may be sending a less than positive message. Unfortunately, employers today will evaluate your worth and hire-ability based on the look of your smile.
“Employers have reported they will often not hire someone who has an unhealthy looking smile," says Dr. Strutz. The assumption is that if you do not take care of yourself you also may not pay attention to the details it takes to complete the job. If you are working in retail or with customers there is an even greater importance placed on having a beautiful smile. So while you may think that Veneers are expensive the alternative may be costing you happiness and a life you deserve.
With the right prosthodontist completing the work, your veneers can actually save you money over the long term. Veneers are a less expensive option then having your teeth extracted and getting implants. Your veneers should look natural and beautiful and when done correctly can last up to ten-fifteen years or more. Do not settle for less than the best when you are considering what a smile upgrade can do for you.
While your insurance may not cover cosmetic dentistry, with a little planning and prep work you can be on your way to a gorgeous smile you can be proud.
