Celebrity Smiles Victoria
Are you looking for that “Hollywood” smile? So often in the media today we see people with brilliant white smiles with perfectly straight and proportioned teeth that look beautiful – this is the “Hollywood” smile. There are certain trends in celebrity smiles, like very white teeth or plumped up lips, which frame the smile and bring more attention to it. The stars may achieve their million dollar smiles with a complete mouth reconstruction, and this may often include a full set of veneers that are custom shaped and colored to their specific liking. Other techniques or products that may be used include cosmetic contouring or enameloplasty, gum contouring, Lumineers, crowns and whitening procedures. Wrinkles around the mouth may be reduced with certain treatments and the lips may also be enlarged – all of these techniques work together to generate fabulous smiles for the rich and famous.
We would all like to have an appealing smile, though for some people, the “Hollywood” smile is too white and unnatural looking. Research shows that the smile is the second body part noticed after the eyes when we first meet someone. Having a clean and appealing smile can make a person seem more friendly and approachable, both in work and social situations. Thus, it is not surprising that we would all like to have an attractive smile. Luckily, cosmetic dentistry today is affordable, even if you aren’t a Hollywood star. Your Victoria dentist can help you to create your own gorgeous smile (be it of the “Hollywood” variety, or something more unique) using a number of straightforward techniques. The first and most important step to begin your smile transformation is to meet with your dentist and discuss your ideas for your smile and what you hope to achieve. Your dentist will make sure that your teeth are healthy and ready for any cosmetic work that you may choose. Then, the two of you can determine a plan for how you can best achieve your smile goal in the time frame and at the cost that is acceptable for you. Your dentist can give you plenty of options, from a small change in the shape of a few teeth to a change in the shape of your gums, from a single veneer to a whole set of veneers, from porcelain to composite to Lumineers, or from a simple whitening of your existing teeth to a full mouth reconstruction. Your cosmetic dentist will work together with other members of the dental team, including specialists (for example, a prosthodontist who does dental implants, if needed, or an orthodontist if orthodontics are required) and dental ceramists to achieve your smile goals. Your smile is a very personal choice, so it is important that you consult with the dentist and together evaluate the changes at every step of the way to achieve your final smile result.
