Did you know a simple set of veneers can give you a whole-smile makeover? The Anacapa Dental Art Institute (805-856-6547) specializes in this kind of work – and they have lots of options to choose from. Just don’t forget to ask about sedation, too.
Do you know what it's called when you trip, fall, and knock out one of your own teeth?
Now, while you were laughing at my obviously hilarious joke - did you lift your hand and cover your mouth?
I ask because that's one of the number one signs that someone needs a little dental work - and it's one I'm very familiar with myself. I used to have terrible-looking teeth, and any time I opened my mouth to laugh, eat, or smile by accident, my hand came up to cover it - automatically.
Now, here's the cool part - I don't do that anymore, and I haven't in years.
In fact, when I smile now, I open my mouth wider, to show off my fantastic new smile - and I feel like a whole new me. In part because it's a lot easier to eat... but mostly because the world seems like a whole different place when you have a beautiful smile to show off.
It's easier, and less painful than you probably think - if you pick the right specialist.
I always recommend the Anacapa Dental Art Institute, for a few reasons. I'll explain why, but in the meantime, you may want to bookmark their page for later. It even explains all your veneer options, in detail. Just visit https://anacapadental.com/cosmetic-dentistry/dental-veneers/
Veneers aren't a magic solution to all your dental problems... but they can be a magic solution to most of them. It depends on what problems you face - so the first step is always a visit to the dentist, to get a professional opinion.
Here's what I can tell you though - veneers can't fix missing teeth, but for most other problems, they're great. Stains of any kind are easy, minor cracks, breaks, and weirdly shaped teeth are fixable too.
If you're not familiar with veneers, they put a "veneer" over your teeth, like the name says. For example, if your teeth are stained beyond cleaning, a dentist may make new "covers" for each problem tooth, which are just thin sheets of porcelain, shaped the way the tooth should look. Then they attach them right to the damaged or stained teeth, and they look brand new, instantly.
Which type of veneer is right for you, will depend on a few things. Before you decide, my advice is to talk to a specialist and see what they recommend. If you want to talk to the best experts in California, then take my advice and check out https://anacapadental.com/ - then ask for Dr. Jivraj. He's the founder of the Anacapa Dental Art Institute and a top specialist in smile makeovers.
He's most likely to suggest porcelain veneers, I can tell you now, because they're usually the best option. They're more durable, easier to color-match, and more natural-looking than most of the other options. Let's talk about the other ones for a minute though, just to be fair.
Composite resin veneers are an alright option if you're on a budget, or if you're concerned about causing more damage to your existing teeth. While these veneers will need replacement sooner than porcelain, they are more affordable and require less enamel to be removed from your teeth, so they're fairly reversible.
Prepless veneers are another option that can be used to prevent damage to your underlying teeth, but this method can be both more costly and more temporary. Prepless veneers have their place - for example, if you need a full smile makeover, right now, they're practically your only option. Unless you're in a real rush though, porcelain will provide most of the same benefits, with a better-looking result, that will last longer
Porcelain veneers are often recommended as the most effective permanent solution because they can last 20 years or longer with proper care. They're also very natural-looking, and easy to color match to your existing teeth or to make a few shades brighter if you're doing a full-smile.
Just do yourself a favor, and when you call to make an appointment - ask them about their sedation options. Dental work may be necessary, but that doesn't mean that it has to be painful.
The Anacapa Dental Art Institute has all the options, from laughing gas, to chill pills, to knocking you right out - with medications of course. If you want to fall asleep in the chair and wake up with your new smile already installed, they can do that.
