Dental Veneers Are the First Step in a Hollywood Smile Makeover
Celebrities have set a very high bar for cosmetic appearance in Los Angeles. What is usually not recognized is that their gleaming smiles are often the result of dental veneers, as George Clooney, Demi Moore, Tom Cruise, and Hilary Duff, among others, have admitted.
The good news is that Wilshire Smile Studio can provide veneers to create a Hollywood smile at a non-celebrity price. Dental porcelain (instead of the inferior material some other dental office use) is very cost-effective when its durability is considered, lasting 10 years or more with proper care.
Dental veneers can cover a wide variety of smile imperfections: chipped and cracked teeth, gaps between them, those that have been worn down or have deep stains, and teeth that are too small, misshapen, or wrongly positioned (which can make that area hard to clean).
You probably have tried over-the counter whitening agents and been disappointed by the results. It is hard to keep teeth white because they are easily stained by coffee, tea, red wine, colas, blueberries, and other strongly-colored beverages and foods. Smoking (anything), aging, some medications, and strong mouthwashes can also discolor. Before veneers are placed, depending on the circumstances, we may recommend a professional whitening so that translucency of veneers do not reveal an underlying yellowing or darkness of the teeth.
“We pay attention to the details in evaluating the proportions of your face, the relationship between your lips and the teeth they frame, the size and shape of neighboring teeth that might not be covered by the veneers, and getting a matching shade exactly right,” said Dr. Baruch Twersky of Wilshire Smile Studio. “Then we collaborate with a top dental lab to create your truly personalized set of veneers, so natural no one will ever know these are not your original teeth.”
Veneers can be the first step in a dental cosmetic makeover that can give you the confidence to give a friendly, full smile to everyone you meet.
