Did you know that some of the earliest dental materials used to restore teeth were beeswax and wood? Can you imagine trying to chew or smile with wooden teeth?!
Thankfully, dentistry has come a long way since then and the materials we use are much better! In fact, the materials used for veneers have improved even further over the last 50 years or so. Where we once only had options like acrylic or composite, now we have porcelain veneers in Maspeth that don’t stain or show wear like the old variety did. Now you can not only transform your smile, but you can rest easy that it will continue looking great for many years to come!

There are some intangible gifts that we sometimes take for granted. One of them is the act of smiling. You have encoded into your nervous system the ability to generate a smile. And that little simple act does wonders for you. It helps your brain produce endorphins, the feel-good hormones, and it enhances your self-esteem. You just can’t help but feel better when you smile. What a beautiful gift this is. But sometimes there are circumstances that discourage you from smiling, one being imperfect teeth. It can cause you to withdraw and limit your own inner wellspring of happiness. That’s why cosmetic dentistry is so vital to your overall wellness. It will help restore the confidence you need to smile more, which in-turn will boost your confidence even more. Learn more about how your cosmetic dentist can help achieve this state of bliss.
