Hollywood Smile

A Hollywood smile is a comprehensive change to your smile, i.e., a complete artificial reconstruction of the jaws using tooth peels, crowns or implants.
Going for this kind of smile is mainly for cosmetic purposes, but of course, Hollywood smile and these ceramic crusts can address some dental problems.

The most important conditions for installing a Hollywood smile

First of all, is the desire to have a great smile.
next is that there are no problems related to gums or teeth roots and all the teeth that exist are permanent and not deciduous teeth

Preparing for a Hollywood Smile

At this point, dentists begin to remove a very thin layer (half a millimetre) of tooth enamel to make room for the temporary cortex.
Depending on the patient, local anaesthesia can be used. Once the preparation process is completed, a new mould will be taken to your teeth and sent to the laboratory where the permanent cortex is designed and created.

Who are the candidates for the Hollywood Smile?

A Hollywood smile is a magic solution for anyone who wants to have flawless white teeth with no pigmentation that limit their beauty, but there are some minor limitations for performing this procedure, such as the inability to perform them on children or teenagers, and the inability to perform them on those who have problems with dental growth or use any kind of braces as you must make sure that the teeth are fixed and stable before making a Hollywood smile 

The benefits of a Hollywood smile:

The main benefit we gain from a Hollywood smile is the beauty of the teeth and the wonderful smile that is reflected on the personality and self-confidence, but that is not the only benefit, in addition to what was mentioned there are more benefits like:

  • white teeth and smile.
  •  Natural-looking teeth
  •  Addressing dental problems, especially simple cosmetic ones.
  •  Replacement of damaged tooth enamel
  •  Immediate results.
  • You don’t need time for recovery.
  •  Long-term results

Hollywood smile techniques

Hollywood smile
veneers lenses

A dental veneer is a thin crust called “tooth lenses” made specifically from materials designed to cover the front surface of the teeth to improve their appearance. Dental lenses are fixed at the front of the teeth, to improve their colour, shape, size or length.

Lumineers lenses

It is one of the methods used to improve the shape and colour of the teeth, it is painless and does not require the removal of a layer of enamel, and the most appropriate case for using Lumineers is when the teeth are ideally aligned (i.e., non-competing, not pushed forward or backward).

zirconia crowns

Zirconia crowns are one of the most important types of crowns recently recommended. Those who want aesthetic artificial teeth prefer zircon crowns, the zircon crowns consist of zirconium oxide which is a transparent white metal whose advantage is formed by specific rays. Also, the colour of the teeth is whiter than other treatment options. There is no grey line compared to those found in traditional metal-based ceramic crowns.

The difference between veneer lenses and Lumineers

The difference between veneers and Lumineers in terms of thickness, the veneer is about 2 mm thick and never less than 0.5 mm, while Lumineers is less than 0.5 mm thick.
The cost: Lumineers is much more expensive than veneers because it needs special skills and extreme accuracy regarding the manufacture and the experience of the dentist who is performing it, Lumineers is a very thin layer and needs the skill to deal with it and long training in carving and shaping it, so Lumineers prices are twice the price of veneers.
