You can have a stunning smile with dental veneers. Hollywood smiles do not come naturally. Instead, they come at the expert hand of a skilled cosmetic dentist. While stars are smiling on the big screen, keep in mind that your smile can look that amazing when simply working with the right dental professional. One of the first things that you should do to improve your smile is to have a professional teeth whitening completed. This can dramatically improve your smile without costing a lot of time or money. Bright white teeth are one of the first things that people notice when you smile so by having this procedure done you can instantly improve your appearance.
If there are severe stains on your teeth, whitening alone may not produce the results you are looking for. Dental veneers are ideal for covering difficult to remove stains and are commonly used in the Hollywood scene. They are also used for the following:
- Correct damaged teeth. If your tooth has gotten cracked or chipped, it can be corrected and restored to full functionality and appearance by using a veneer. Since it is placed directly on top of the tooth, the natural one must still be in place. Dental implants are a better solution for when a tooth needs to be replaced.
- Close gaps. Small gaps in the teeth can be closed by using dental veneers. This is much faster than wearing braces. Instead of spending two years to correct your smile, it can be done in a matter of months.
- Straighten teeth. When teeth are slightly crooked, their appearance can be improved with veneers so that it looks straight without going through a lengthy process.
- Make teeth even. If you have one tooth that is longer than the other, this can be corrected with cosmetic dentistry. You can have a completely uniform smile using veneers.
The reason why Hollywood smiles look so glamorous is because their teeth are perfectly symmetrical, even, straight, bright, and white. This is not normal or natural. Most people have some level of imperfections whether caused by drinking too much coffee or having cavities as a child. The good news is that all of these imperfections, whether big or small can be corrected by an experienced dentist.
If dental veneers are not right for you, there are other options that can be considered such as implant dentistry, crowns, bridges, Invisalign, and even orthodontics. All are viable options for improving a smile and can work together or separately to help you achieve your smile goals. When discussing options we will review things like how long each procedure will take, what the cost will be, and the recovery time so that you can select the option that works best for your lifestyle and future plans.
