Achieving the perfect Hollywood smile

“Smile is the beauty of the soul.” – Lailah Gifty Akita

Your smile plays an integral role in creating your persona and accentuating your charisma. What makes the perfect smile? A perfect set of teeth.

Having perfect teeth, unlike most beauty trends, never goes out of style. Flawlessly aligned, pearly, bright, and gap-free white teeth; what more could anyone ask for?

How to get a Hollywood smile?

The procedure used to give you that perfect set of pearly whites is called veneering. Dental veneers are shell-like structures made with different materials that are applied to the front of the teeth. Veneers serve to reinvent your smile by covering any aesthetic concerns.

Veneering is a relatively simple procedure and is used to correct and conceal an array of dental impairments, such as staining, deterioration, discoloration, gaps, etc.  

 Types of Dental Veneers

Veneers are made with an array of different materials, depending on their quality and subsequent cost. There are three main types of veneers that you can choose from.

  • Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are relatively thick caps, approximately 5mm in thickness. They require a little bit of enamel filing. This is a necessary step to ensure that your veneers look as natural as possible and are not bulky or protruding. Porcelain veneers are a little pricey, but they are durable and mimic the natural tooth aesthetic quite well.

  • Lumineers

Lumineers are ultra-thin, partially translucent shells that, unlike porcelain veneers, do not require excessive enamel filing. They are ideal for those who do not wish to scrape off their enamel in attempts to fix their smile aesthetic. Lumineers are relatively costly, but they are strong, durable, and most aesthetically pleasing.

  • Composite Resin Veneers

Composite resin veneers are manufactured with the same material that is used for your dental fillings. While composite veneers are convenient and the most economical, they are a little tricky to work with and do not look as natural as the other two options. Composite veneers are also susceptible to chipping and staining over time. Additionally, they cannot be color matched the most accurately.

What does the procedure entail?

The procedure is typically divided into multiple sittings. The first consultation comprises of a thorough examination of the patient’s teeth and jaw. In the case of any cavities, gum diseases, or infections, treating the problem is the primary objective.

After the treatment is complete, the dentist will take an impression of the patient’s mouth. The measurements are then sent to the lab, which will craft a set of temporary veneers.

In the next sitting, the dentist usually does the tooth prep and takes the impression for the final veneer set and places the temporary veneers in place.

In the final appointment, the temporary veneers are removed, and the permanent ones are installed.

Voila! Your Hollywood smile is ready.
