What is a Hollywood smile?
A Hollywood smile is a very popular complete dental transformation. It consists of whitening and realigning the teeth to achieve a brilliant white smile. It is a smile makeover that finds the balance between natural and unnatural whiteness to create a long-lasting and natural-looking finish.
A Hollywood smile is the perfect solution for:
- Whitening discoloured or stained teeth
- Covering and protecting chipped or damaged teeth
- Misshapen or uneven teeth
- Closing gaps in between the teeth
- Resolving problems with teeth movement or overcrowding
How can I achieve a Hollywood smile?
The Hollywood smile procedure relies on the use of veneers, which are porcelain shell-like coverings that are applied to the teeth. Veneers are able to correct any imperfections and staining in order to reinvent the smile. They are a perfectly safe and comfortable solution.
Known for their durability, porcelain veneers are the most trusted and aesthetic form of cosmetic dental treatment.
Composite veneers are the most economical option for a Hollywood smile, last between 5-8 years with proper care and cost between £200-£600 per tooth.
Porcelain veneers cost a little more – between £500-£1000 – however they look more natural, and last between 10 and 15 years. If you are having a total Hollywood makeover, the price per tooth tends to be slightly lower.
If you have a missing tooth or teeth, a dental implant is the first step in the Hollywood smile makeover. A dental implant replaces the natural root with a crown, which, typically made of porcelain, feels and looks like a natural tooth.
Though a single dental implant tends to cost between £2,400 and £2,600, they are strong and durable. Their porcelain makeup means that they do not stain, and after insertion, maintenance is minimal – practicing good oral hygiene is enough to keep your implant in impeccable condition.
The process of achieving a Hollywood smile is broken down into multiple parts.
