The obsession with a perfect smile is not an altogether unenviable status. This is primarily because a good looking smile is also a healthy smile. Proper care such as brushing and flossing as well as regular dental visits an even corrective procedures can do more than just enhance appearance. All of this leads to better dental health which ultimately leads to better quality of life throughout any age.
One common practice to get a straight and white set of teeth is to employ the addition of porcelain veneers. This process has been modernized to replace what was traditionally referred to as capping, and is a far less invasive and healthier manner of addressing imperfections and even potential hazards.
