The Pros and Cons of Porcelain Veneers

Many people are not happy with their teeth. Some people think the gap between their two front teeth is too big, or they don’t like a small chip or crack. Others don’t believe they’re white enough, don’t like the shape, or they have a permanent stain that not even teeth whitening services from their dentist can fix.

If you have imperfections in your teeth that you don’t like, you might think you have to put up with them. While you can, your self-esteem and confidence can plummet as a result. Why not fix the dental problem, or at least weigh up the options of trying something like porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are tooth-coloured porcelain shells that adhere to your natural teeth. They are a permanent addition, with your dentist removing your teeth’s enamel to fit them. Once you have them, there’s no going back to your original teeth.

Drug Rehab

Signs You May Need to Go to Rehab

Many people think of drug rehab as a place to admit defeat, but it’s not that at all. It’s the middle ground between medical care and outpatient treatment, providing tools and support for those who possibly need a helping hand to break free from the grasp of drugs and alcohol.

However, it’s not always easy to know whether you need drug rehab or not. You may feel like your problem isn’t severe enough, or that you can help yourself without professional assistance. Here are a few tell-tale signs that drug rehab, in fact, could be the right move for you.

You Put Drugs Before Anything Else

If you are beginning to make drugs your primary focus and priority, then rehab could be a sensible solution for you. You might be starting to do everything for your next drink, smoke, or hit, and your favourite hobbies and activities could also be taking a backseat. Even loved ones may end up coming off second-best to your drugs. At this point, drug rehab is not only an option but a necessity to get you back on track and in the driver’s seat.

Your Physical and Mental Health is Suffering

Drugs can affect both your body and mind – in the short term and long term. If you identify unwanted behaviour or body changes that are a direct result of drug use, then rehab facilities can help. There are trained medical staff at drug rehab centres that focus on both aspects of your health.

Use Botox

What You Need to Know Before You Use Botox and Other Wrinkle Relaxers

Injecting something into your face can seem quite scary. If you usually shy away from needles, then it’s even more so. Fortunately, Botox is a wrinkle relaxer that has FDA approval. You can rest assured that it’s far safer to use than many other injectables for sale.

If you think you’re ready for that youthful glow, then it’s time to do your homework. Here are a few of the many things you need to know before you use Botox or other wrinkle relaxers.

You Don’t Look “Frozen”

Critics will raise their eyebrows at you when you say you’re going to get Botox, with many then going on to tell you that you’ll end up looking frozen. Of course, there will be some movement restriction, but conservative amounts of Botox will still let you show plenty of emotion. Botox relaxes your wrinkles, but it doesn’t affect your facial muscles that help you make expressions.

There Are Things You Need to Avoid Before Botox

Your qualified and experienced Botox specialist will tell you everything you need to avoid before your treatment. Anticoagulants are the most important. Stay away from ibuprofen, aspirin, and anything that can stop your blood from clotting and increase the risk of bruising.
