Have you ever caught yourself staring at the perfect smiles seen on TV, in the movies, and in magazines… the smiles of Hollywood actors and actresses, and models? Have you ever wondered, “How did they get that perfect, white smile?
Odds are, those celebrities were not born with pearly white smiles. These smiles were likely designed and created just for them with the help of a cosmetic dentist. The good news? Anyone can enjoy the perfect Hollywood smile, with the assistance of a cosmetic dentist and porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers (also referred to as porcelain laminates) are super thin, custom fabricated shells of tooth colored porcelain designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your smile’s overall aesthetic appearance.
These shells are adhesively bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, width, and/or length. Versatile and very strong, porcelain veneers are used in a variety of ways to transform your smile, from complete smile makeovers to repairing a chipped tooth.
Porcelain veneers are custom made from a high quality dental porcelain that has similar light reflecting properties as our natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are excellent at resisting stains and they mimic our natural teeth’s light reflecting properties. They are the cosmetic dentist’s greatest tool for elevating a normal smile to a Hollywood smile.
