What is a ‘Hollywood’ Smile Makeover?
Getting that perfect Hollywood Smile is something that most people dream of, but did you know a sparkling white, beautiful set of teeth is not that far out of reach?
Here is the step by step process that we follow to achieve the perfect Hollywood Smile for all our clients.
What is a ‘Hollywood’ Smile Makeover?
A ‘Hollywood’ Smile Makeover involves cosmetic procedures to achieve the perfect shape, color, and size of teeth to fit perfectly in your mouth. The most common cosmetic procedure is Porcelain Veneers, which are thin ceramic wafers that are designed to cover the surface of your individual teeth.
Every smile is custom-designed to fit your unique facial features, creating a smile that’s fit for a king or queen!
Porcelain Veneers are stain-resistant and are used to:
- Close gaps between teeth
- Correct misalignment of teeth
- Restore worn down or chipped teeth
- Correct permanent staining of teeth due to defects in the enamel that cannot be removed using whitening procedures
Renowned for their durability and strength, Porcelain Veneers are one of the most trusted and aesthetically pleasing cosmetic dental treatments to achieving a flawless Hollywood Smile.
What Steps Are Taken During the ‘Hollywood’ Smile Makeover?
The entire process to achieve a ‘Hollywood Smile’ Makeover usually takes 2-3 dental visits, which range over a period of a week.
Step 1 – Consultation & Smile Assessment
During your Consultation & Smile Assessment, our Cosmetic Dentists will examine your teeth to establish if Porcelain Veneers are the appropriate choice for you, and will explain the full extent of the ‘Hollywood’ Smile Makeover procedure.
In this consultation, you will discuss the preferred shape, length, width and color of your new teeth. This is the patients’ opportunity to establish their desired outcomes and expectations upfront.
Our Dentist will proceed with taking impressions and photographs of the patient’s mouth, which will be used to develop temporary veneers and a Digital Smile Design preview of your new ‘Hollywood’ Smile Makeover for the second appointment.
This is done to ensure our new patients are 100% satisfied with their new smile before they commit.
Step 2 – Digital Smile Preview & Application
By utilizing our own Dr. Joy Dental Clinics in-house laboratory, we create a set of temporary veneers based on the initial consultation requirements, which are ready for application if the patient goes ahead with this design. The Digital Smile Design preview is also shown to the patient.
Our Cosmetic Dentists will begin to work on the patients’ teeth, removing a very thin layer (half a millimeter) of the teeth’ enamel to make space for the temporary veneers. Depending on the patient, a local anesthesia may be used.
Once the removal process is finished, a new mold will be taken of your teeth and sent to our in-house lab where the permanent Porcelain Veneers are designed and created.
Step 3 – Permanent Placement
On the third and final visit, your beautiful custom Porcelain Veneers are installed.
Our Cosmetic Dentist will place the veneers on your teeth for evaluation, and they may need to be trimmed or altered to ensure the perfect fit.
Once your veneers fit perfectly, your teeth will be cleaned and polished and will have etching done in order to adhere to the cement that will permanently bond your veneers in place.
A high-quality dental cement is applied to each veneer and then placed onto your teeth. Once in position, our Cosmetic Dentist will use a special light on each veneer to harden the dental cement.
Once all your veneers have been installed, the excess dental cement will be removed, your bite assessed and you now have your very own Hollywood Smile!
Step 4 – Follow Up
A few weeks after your procedure, a follow-up appointment is necessary to ensure everything is perfect. We will check the patient’s mouth, gums, and porcelain veneers to see how everything is placed and responding to each other. If all is well, you are officially done your ‘Hollywood’ Smile Makeover!
