New Smile with Veneers vs a Used Toyota

New Smile with Veneers vs a Used Toyota

Apr 27, 2023

Q: my friend told me how much he spent on a new smile and I couldn’t believe it; he could have bought a car for that money.

A: As a diehard car guy, I often peruse cars.com between the teeth at my desk. Just weigh the pros and cons of investing in a new smile with Porcelain veneers vs a used Toyota with 70,000 miles on the clock.

The car:

  • Every day the car is worth less and less as it depreciates into a rolling piece of scrap metal.
  • The esthetics of the car will only go downhill; fading paint, outdated styling, cloudy headlights. The car will become ugly. A Kia or Toyota SUV will never be a collectible vintage car. Trust me.
  • A lifetime of repairs and maintenance “drilling” a hole in your wallet.
  • After the new car smell disappears, the thrill is gone. Only your drive thru food smells and your uncle Mo’s cigar will remain.
  • Puts your life in danger every time you use it.
  • You will not have this car in 5 to 10 years.

Your new smile: “priceless”

  • Veneers never stain or change color
  • they are “new” not “used” no smell of cigarettes and Brute cologne.
  • No depreciation, actually as you age, you will always look 10 years younger
  • Better social life/love life
  • Makes you look great in photos
  • People always ask our patients if they lost weight
  • Your bite and chewing will improve
  • You will have less wrinkles around the lips and face
  • Your teeth will never be referred to as a “jalopy”, “beater” or a “lemon”.
  • You most likely will have your gorgeous smile for the rest of your life.
  • Maintenance is cheap: Brush, floss and see your hygienist three times per year.
  • If you’re in sales, you will 100% increase your revenue. Especially realtors. I have seen it happen throughout my 35-year career!
