Hollywood Smile Types
Veneers are porcelain films 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 with decent durability and strength. It can give the smile an authentic appeal due to its ability to be color-matched.
Advantages of Veneers
- 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 resembles lenses. Lumineers are made from porcelain but despite their thin structures come with great durability.
Because they’re slim, your dentist doesn’t have to file down your enamel or teeth to fit the films.
Advantages of Lumineers
- 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.
Depending on the thickness of your zirconium veneers, your doctor may or may not file down your enamel.
Advantages Of Zirconium Veneers
- Durable and strong
- Natural results
- Best light transmission
- Suitable for deep pigmentation and minor misalignment
- Corrects structural defects in teeth
Hollywood Smile Procedure
Before placing your Hollywood Smile, there will be a treatment period. This period is essential to make sure your Hollywood Smile is placed on a healthy dental structure. To examine your mouth thoroughly your dentist will use x-rays. If inflammation, gum disease, or cavities are present, your dentist will deal with them first.
In your next visit, your dentist will file down your teeth if necessary. This aspect depends on your choice of Hollywood Smile. For example, with Lumineers, this step isn’t necessary.
Following this, your dentist will have your bite down on mold to get impressions of your mouth. They will also color match your Hollywood smile and send this information to an off-site laboratory.
In a few days, you’ll get your custom-built Hollywood Smile and your dentist will cement the structures into place.

Hollywood Smile 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 your natural teeth. Brush twice per day, floss, and use antibacterial products. It’s important to prevent food and plaque build-up.
Another thing to keep in mind is not applying pressure to your teeth. Do not use your teeth to open objects because this can break your teeth. As a rule of thumb, anything that would break your natural teeth would break your veneers.
Do I Need to Change My Diet After Hollywood Smile?
Not necessarily. But it’s better to avoid staining products such as red wine and cigarettes. This ensures that the glow of your Hollywood Smile stays for the longest time.
Other than that, your Hollywood Smile won’t stop you from eating your favorite foods and snacks.
How Long Does Hollywood Smile Procedure Take Generally?
It takes around 3 to 5 days until your Hollywood Smile placement. But with our CEREC technology, you can get it immediately.
