Bensalem, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/23/2015 -- Everyone strives to look their best, whether by pampering their skin, trying a new hairstyle, or getting their body into shape. The latest beauty and health secret to be coveted is cosmetic dentistry. A person's smile is their most eye-catching physical trait and one that has tremendous impact.
Whether you have broken or injured teeth, or would like to make your teeth whiter, Dr. Michael Brogna of Bensalem Dental Group offers services such as cosmetic fillings, teeth whitening, bonding, porcelain veneers, dentures, implants and more.
"While the primary goal of cosmetic dentistry is usually a more beautiful smile, patients also experience unexpected side benefits: healthier teeth, gums and bones," says Dr. Brogna, "So treatment procedures such as dental veneers can actually produce a healthier smile."
Dental veneers are thin, shell-like porcelain covers that are bonded onto the front surface of the teeth. Despite their thinness, veneers become very strong when bonded to the tooth. Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for covering cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth. They can also close gaps between teeth for a flawless smile.
The psychological effects of a great smile are numerous. Individuals feel more physically attractive and therefore experience a boost in their self-confidence. Patients who have had veneers bonded to their teeth often find that their new smiles have a positive impact on their personal and professional interactions.
According to research by social psychologists, the majority of people spend around four seconds appraising a person's physical appearance before subconsciously forming a list of assumptions about his or her educational level, career skills, accomplishments, character, sense of humor and other personality traits. Right or wrong, fair or not, a beautiful smile makes a positive difference in today's world.
