What is the Hollywood Smile?
The rhythm of life, the passage of time or simply because of genetics, teeth can lose their shine, crack, and turn yellow. To find white and aligned teeth, the Hollywood Smile wins all the votes.
It is a new trend in cosmetic dentistry that has quickly become very popular. The Hollywood smile is a smile with well-defined standards: dazzling whiteness, impeccable alignment and perfect harmony between the lips, teeth and gums. It brings together a set of techniques to correct small and large imperfections in the teeth.
Currently, the best solution to obtain this result and have a star smile is the placement of dental veneers. Widely popularized by stars in Hollywood, there are several types of veneers: porcelain, ceramic or Lumineers. Depending on the case, the patient’s wishes and his budget, the practitioner will choose the most suitable facets for him.
How to get a Hollywood smile?
No matter which veneer you choose, the first step is the same: Get an oral health exam. Before you do anything, it’s important to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. Patients requiring dental implants or periodontal tissue treatment will not follow the same procedure as patients requiring only veneers.
1. Ceramic veneers
Their installation is usually done in one session and the principle is to install the veneers directly on the teeth. The dentist prepares the enamel and applies several layers of composite resin that gradually hardens under light. After the veneer is made, it must be polished and/or cut for a natural finish.
2. Porcelain veneers
The laying of porcelain dental veneers requires 2 to 3 sessions during which the dentist proceeds in different stages. It is simply a thin shell made of porcelain that is attached to the surface of the tooth. For a tailor-made and natural result, their manufacture requires more time and requires the intervention of a dental technician. Before the installation and to prepare the teeth, a thin layer of enamel of about 0.5 millimeters is removed to make room for the new veneer.
3. Lumineers facets
Lumineers Veneers are quick and painless to use. Ultra-thin, they don’t require perforations the size of teeth or their structure. The secret is their low strength. In the first session, dental impressions are made, and in the second session, Lumineers veneers are applied.
