What is a Hollywood smile?
Hollywood smile refers to the ideal designer smile most celebrities and models glove. It constitutes specific attributes of pearly, bright, aligned, and gap-free whites. The Hollywood smile procedure is a simple procedure that can fix an extensive array of dental impairments. The aim of this smile is to get an ideal set of teeth and a glowing grin.
Hollywood Smile is a total makeover of your smile, i.e. a complete prosthetic reconstruction of both jaws using caps, veneers and, quite often, implants. Hollywood Smile involves placing dental crowns on all teeth, or at least on all visible teeth in both jaws, which means up to and including premolars. The term comes from the eponymous movie mecca and is used to evoke the brightly bleached teeth of Hollywood celebrities.
Who is a suitable candidate for Hollywood Smile?
Almost all patients are potential candidates for the Hollywood Smile, but the requirements that have to be met concerning the condition of teeth and jaws, as well as the readiness to undergo different types of procedures affect the way that the Hollywood Smile will be achieved.
How to get a Hollywood Smile?
- Visit us for an initial consultation with one of our cosmetic dentists. Your oral health and medical history will be examined to determine if you are fit for the Hollywood smile procedure. The cost or price of the whole procedure can be discussed at this point.
- Once your dentist confirms that you’re a perfect fit for the procedure, your cosmetic dentist will start working on the Hollywood smile treatment. To prepare the teeth, a thin layer of enamel will be removed while under local anesthesia to make it suitable for attaching the veneers. X-rays, 3D scans, and impressions will be taken from your mouth to customize your porcelain veneers. This may take a couple of days.
- On the actual day of the Hollywood smile procedure, your teeth need to be minimally reshaped and cleaned to make sure that the veneers will fit. Finally, the veneers will be bonded on each of the teeth. It may take a few days to get used to your new smile and set of teeth.
