WHAT IS THE HOLLYWOOD SMILE?
Hollywood Smile is a total makeover of your smile, with whatever necessary. The Hollywood smile procedure is a simple procedure that can fix an extensive array of dental impairments. A complete prosthetic reconstruction of both jaws using caps, veneers, and, quite often, implants can be used to get the desired look.
Hollywood Smile involves placing dental crowns on all teeth, or at least on all visible teeth in both jaws, which means up to and including premolars. It ends up being at least ten on the upper jaw, ten on the lower jaw.
Hollywood smile refers to the ideal designer smile most celebrities and models get. It constitutes specific attributes of pearly, bright, aligned, and gap-free whites. This procedure aims to get an ideal set of teeth and a glowing grin for the patient.
The duration of treatment is determined according to the procedures to be performed. Aesthetically pleasing smile criteria are essential. The most crucial aesthetic smile criteria are the cutting part of the teeth while talking and the teeth’ curving with the lower lip. Besides, the dentist who will make a smile makeover should evaluate the patient’s front teeth and the gums, all the teeth, face shape, skin color, and lips.
How is the tooth design determined?
(Generally, they knew the structure of the mouth, lip thickness, …)
Teeth: The upper anterior teeth should not contain a smooth and visible filler. The upper incisors should be apparent compared to the others.
Lips: Should be symmetrical and apparent.
Gingiva: The gingiva on the upper part should look about 2mm, and the color should match your skin color.
Lip width: Should be half of the face width.
Hollywood Smile's Materials and treatments used
The Hollywood smile procedure relies on the structure of veneers. Several types of veneers constitute the Hollywood smile that varies in quality and costs. Hollywood smile options can suit various financial plans.
Hollywood smile with porcelain veneers. Veneers made from porcelain are thick structures of caps on the front of teeth to conceal aesthetic errors. Porcelain veneers need the filing of the enamel. Typically a layer as thick as the veneer (around 5mm) is filed away to make room for the veneer. The removing of a layer of the enamel is an essential prerequisite as avoiding it will create a protruding bulky set of veneers that would take away the element of authenticity in the final results.
Lumineers are a type of dental veneer that comes in the form of ultra-slim shells and is typically partially translucent. The dimensions of lumineers, as opposed to porcelain veneers, and their relatively tenuous build do not include the filing of the enamel layer as a necessary part of the procedure. Therefore, for those who do not wish or are not keen on scraping off a layer of the enamel to fix their teeth’ aesthetic appearance, lumineers can be a feasible option.
Composite Resin Veneers
Composite resins are made from the same material as dental fillings. Therefore, although their application is relatively simple, their modification to match the specific shape and shade characteristics can be challenging. In nature, composite veneers feel more like plastic.
How long is the treatment?
Smile makeover treatment time takes an average of two sessions. Analyzes are made in the first session, and your data are recorded, and in the second session, the design that will emerge after the treatment is shown with the Mock Up application. Treatments are started according to the methods determined as a result of the design. Although the following sessions vary depending on the condition of the teeth and the procedure to be performed, they are usually completed in 3 sessions. According to the patient’s needs, smile design can be done in a single session, and it may take longer in the treatments that require chin relations.
Whom is it done?
If a patient is missing teeth or parts of teeth, or when the alignment and shape are awkward, crowns need to be introduced to the Hollywood Smile procedure.
