Hollywood has long been a centre of glamour, fame, and awards. It’s no natural, then, that many of us have become enamored with the idea of having the perfect, ‘Hollywood smile’. Thanks to advances in cosmetic dentistry, achieving a charming and beautiful set of teeth is much closer to most of us than ever before. Here are the steps to follow for achieving a winning smile:
First of all, visit a qualified and experienced dentist and discuss your needs and desires. He or she will be able to assess your current teeth and come up with a plan of action, taking into account your budget and any medical or other considerations.
One of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures is professional teeth whitening. This can be done at the dentist’s office, or you may be prescribed with a take home whitening kit. This is an excellent option for those who have relatively clean and healthy teeth, as it can be done fairly quickly, and the results can be seen almost immediately.
Veneers are another popular treatment for those whose teeth are stained or slightly crooked. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic which are bonded to the front of the natural teeth. This creates a smooth look on the teeth, one which can literally take years off your appearance.
In more severe cases, such as when teeth are heavily discoloured, chipped, broken or severely crooked, orthodontic braces may be recommended. Braces work in a similar way to traditional braces, but the modern ‘invisible’ varieties are much less conspicuous and cause less discomfort than the traditional metal versions.
Finally, when all treatments have been completed, it is important to follow a good oral hygiene regime in order to keep your Hollywood smile looking its best. This means brushing twice a day, flossing regularly and using a good quality toothpaste. Your dentist may also recommend using an antibacterial mouthwash and regular check-ups.
In conclusion, achieving a winning smile is not a difficult task and there are options available for all budgets. All it takes is a bit of research and dedication to make your dream of a perfect Hollywood smile come true.
