Think of your favorite actor. Now ask yourself if their smile is the one they were born with. Chances are, the answer is, “No.”
You probably already know this. But what you may not realize is the same techniques that shaped the grins of some of the most famous people you see walking the red carpet, are available to anyone.
Preferred Family Dentistry has been performing some of those same smile makeovers on the residents of our region for years. This article takes a look at some of the most common techniques for giving you a Hollywood smile.
How Can I Have a Beautiful Smile Like…?
If you have a crooked smile or other tooth imperfections, it’s inevitable at some point that you might find yourself thinking, “I wish I had a smile like – (you fill in the blank).” This is normal. But modern dentistry has enabled us to achieve that smile makeover with a minimum of fuss, discomfort, and at a price that will – make you smile.
In any case, some things are worth investing in, right?
So, while your favorite Hollywood actor has a smile that appears effortless, the truth is that in many cases, straightening and whitening their teeth has taken a lot of effort. Some of the Hollywood-type cosmetic procedures that we perform include:
- Dental Veneers that are perfect for hiding gaps or small imperfections in the underlying tooth. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are handcrafted to fit your tooth structure and the shape of the smile makeover we’re aiming for. The veneer fits right over the existing tooth and is bonded so you can’t tell the difference between the real tooth and the veneer. We guarantee that a high percentage of Hollywood stars have full veneers that dramatically changed their smile from drab to devastatingly gorgeous. You can have the same smile!
- Dental Crowns are excellent when a veneer simply won’t work because the underlying tooth is too worn. Crowns actually create a new tooth structure, making both a prettier and stronger smile. Crowns are particularly helpful later in life if your teeth haven’t worn as well as you imagined they would.
- Teeth Whitening is useful if you’re fairly pleased with the overall shape of your teeth, but feel they simply aren’t as white as they used to be. Professional teeth whitening is a cost-effective, fast, and safe way to spiff up an otherwise solid smile. The process takes a few weeks, gradually whitening your teeth, so instead of showing up at work with brand new sparkling teeth, this process happens over a short time.
- Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings are perfect if you still have a mouth full of those outdated (and unsafe) mercury fillings. Over time those fillings can begin to break down, which can create health problems. Today we have an alternative that is both safer and that is actually colored to match your teeth. Ask us about replacing any old fillings you have with composite resin tooth colored fillings.
There you have it. You can have a Hollywood smile. There’s just one thing stopping you now; pick up your cell phone and call us to discuss your options. We can help you get a TV-grade grin. What are you waiting for?
