How do these celebs have such beautiful teeth? Is it whitening or is it something else? Often people ask me to whiten their teeth and they reference celebrities with smiles that they love. They think that these celebs have access to a miracle whitening formula that can magically give them perfect teeth.
Most know that the Crest White Strips available in the grocery store aren’t going to get them Scarlett Johansson’s glittering grin. So, yes, celebrities do take advantage of the top-most drawer of tooth enhancement.
Veneers, also known as laminates or “contact lenses” depending on what part of the world you are from, can transform your smile as they have for many celebrity actors and actresses. They are thin slivers of porcelain, which change both the color and shape of your teeth.
Handcrafted porcelain veneers planned and executed correctly can be absolutely stunning. The shape and contours of the teeth can be designed in harmony with your lips, eyes and other facial features to create a lovely and lasting smile. You might just find yourself smiling more and more. Confidence in the way you look and feel can transfer to other parts of your life. A beautiful smile can also change the way others look at you, further boosting your self-esteem.
For people who already have beautifully shaped teeth and a pleasing smile but stained or yellow teeth, cosmetic whitening combined with selective bonded restorations, porcelain or composite will suffice.
Many factors are involved in designing your dream smile. Each patient is different. Gums, speech, occlusion, and health of the teeth are just some of these factors. It is important to understand that there is no one correct treatment. Each dental enhancement plan must spring from individual issues and desires.
