Inspired by Hollywood celebrities, the term Hollywood smile comes from the eponymous movie mecca; it is used to evoke the perfectly aligned and brightly bleached teeth of Hollywood celebrities. Hollywood smile procedure is part of cosmetic dentistry.
Cosmetic dentistry has its origins as far back as the 16th century, but it came to prominence in the 1930s with the advent of the ‘Hollywood smile’ that in general, involves placing dental crowns or veneers on all teeth, or at least on all visible teeth in both jaws.
Hollywood smile different techniques
- Hollywood smile crowns
Hollywood smile can be easilly acheived through dental crowns, which are dental restorations designed to protect a tooth from damage while changing dramatically the appearance of a tooth. In this Hollywood smile procedure, the crowns are designed to fit over a prepared tooth and change its appearance from shape to lenght to color.
Dental crowns are mostly used when decay has severely damaged a tooth, a tooth fractures leaving very little structure to repair, or when replacing a large existing filling that has developed a problem.
Dental crowns are made of a variety of materials, each material is used for a specific situation. Hence, we counte several types crowns such as ceramic crowns, gold crowns, zirconia crowns, emax crowns, porcelain crowns and others.
- Hollywood smile veneers
Hollywood smile can also be acheived through veneers, which are dental cosmetic coatings designed to help changing or enhancing the appearance of the tooth. Veneers are permanently bonded to the teeth, they make them appear whiter and straighter.
Dental veneers can be as thin as contact lenses are extremely strong when properly bonded to a tooth. They are used, generally, in cases of discolored, worn down, gaps between teeth, cracked and chipped teeth. Smile makeover via veneers can be completed in as few as two visits to the dentist.
Traditionally, veneers are made of porcelain material and require significant preparation to get the teeth ready for application. However, there are several types of veneers available and the dentist will select the type that best fits the patient's needs.
- Hollywood smile lumineers
Lumineers are a brand of veneers that take less preparation and advanced dental work than traditional veneers. They're often called “no prep” veneers. Lumineers are thinner, cheaper, and faster to apply. But choosing the right kind of veneer isn’t a simple task att all.
Lumineers require less preparation to apply to your teeth. They’re also potentially reversible, but they don’t last as long as veneers. They’re also not as effective at hiding severely stained or damaged teeth.
- Hollywood smile dental Implants
In certain difficult and complicated cases, Hollywood smile requires dental implants to be acheived. In fact, Dental implants can be performed as part of a perfect Hollywood Smile as this technique can replace one or more missing or damaged teeth.
