Because your smile is your strongest asset, you need to make sure it’s perfect. Among the most effective treatments for beautifying the smile and ticking off all the right boxes is the Hollywood Smile.
This procedure uses film-like covers, called veneers, to correct all the issues, be it pigmentation, chipping, or shape-related issues. It’s long-lasting, effective, and most importantly natural-looking.
And, at Dentakay, we tailor your smile in a way that accentuates your features and enhances your natural beauty.
The Hollywood Smile-Veneer Types
Porcelain films come with a thickness that varies between 0.5 mm to 2 mm. They are fitted on the front part of the tooth to cover all defects. Because veneers are relatively thick, your dentist will have to file down your enamel to make room for the veneer.
Porcelain is an element that behaves exactly like natural teeth. Moreover, it comes with decent durability and strength. Since it has the ability to match the color, it can give your Hollywood Smile an authentic appeal.
- Suitable for deep pigmentation
- Natural results
- Corrects minor to intermediate alignment problems
- Corrects chipping
Lumineers are ultra-slim films with a 0.3 mm thickness that shares quite a close resemblance with lenses. Lumineers are made from porcelain. Despite their thin structures, they come with excellent durability.
Because they’re slim, your dentist doesn’t have to file down your enamel or teeth to fit the films.
- Durability and strength
- Natural results
- Suitable for minor pigmentation
- Keeps the enamel intact
Veneers made from zirconium have chemical traits similar to titanium. Their durability and strength are unparalleled and so is their light transmission.
Zirconium veneers are unique in the way they reflect light which allows them to provide very natural results of a Hollywood Smile.
Depending on the thickness of your zirconium veneers, your doctor may or may not file down your enamel.
- Durable and strong
- Natural results
- Best light transmission
- Suitable for deep pigmentation and minor misalignment
- Corrects structural defects in teeth
Hollywood Smile Procedure
The Hollywood Smile treatment differs for everyone and is performed as per one’s dental needs. Not only the treatment but also the timeline is different for each patient. Again, it also depends on the condition of the teeth and the level of attention it requires in terms of treatment. However, the initial steps making up the process remains the same as mentioned below.
For starters, before getting started with the treatment, there is going to be a consultation session. It is to evaluate the oral health and discuss medical history if any. This is to ensure that the Hollywood Smile is places on a healthy dental structure. To examine your mouth thoroughly, your dentist will use x-rays. If it shows any signs of inflammation, gum disease, or cavities, the dentist will deal with them first.
Next, your dentist will move onto planning and redesigning of your new Hollywood Smile. The dentist will ask the patient about what changes they want to see in their smile. Subsequently, dentist will inform as to what is medically possible. Furthermore, your budget in addition to your requirements will be thoroughly discussed to give you the best possible smile.
Moving on, the most crucial part begins, which is tooth preparation or you can say, execution. Take note of the fact that tooth preparation is diffent for each dental restoration. It varies from patient to patient as each comes with a different set of needs.
Hollywood Smile Results
The results of the Hollywood Smile procedure are instantaneous. The smile transformation will be drastic and at Dentakay completely unique to you.
Speaking of the lifespan of Hollywood Smile, it is around 15 years with good aftercare.
Caring for your Hollywood Smile is one of the secrets to life-long results. And luckily, it’s not demanding.
You should care for your Hollywood Smile the same way you would do for your natural teeth. Make sure that you brush twice a day, floss, and use antibacterial products. It’s important to prevent food and plaque build-up.
Another thing to keep in mind is not to apply pressure to your teeth. Do not use your them to open objects because this can break your teeth. As a rule of thumb, anything that would break your natural teeth would also break your veneers.
