Google celebrity smiles and a number of famous faces will appear in the search results. Yet Tom Cruise didn’t always have perfectly shaped or straight teeth and Sharon Stone’s teeth weren’t always so pearly. In some respects, these celebrity smiles were made famous by cosmetic dentistry.
Perhaps inspired by these A-listers, the popularity of cosmetic dental procedures grows every year. Crowns and bonding remain the No. 1 most popular cosmetic procedure, as noted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Veneers and whitening round out the top four treatments, and are likely the first options that come to mind when you consider celebrity dental procedures.
Porcelain veneers are a quick way to transform the look of your smile dramatically. These thin layers of porcelain may be securely bonded to the front of your teeth. They are used to cover up stubborn discoloration, reshape teeth, close gaps, and for slight repositioning.
Not all veneers are the same. Big Smile Dental likes to give its patients options. Lumineers are another brand of porcelain veneer. Whenever a tooth is reshaped or improved upon with a dental material, a portion of the existing tooth structure is usually altered. In the case of veneers, a very small portion of tooth enamel must be removed to accommodate the width of the veneer. Lumineers are known to be even thinner than traditional porcelain veneers. Big Smile Dental may not need to remove any tooth enamel during the process.
You may also choose to transform the color of your teeth quickly and dramatically. Big Smile Dental offers leading, safe in-office whitening. Stains that may have built up after years of coffee consumption and smoking can be eliminated in just 1 hour.
Big Smile Dental also appreciates that every patient’s preferences and goals are different. You may have seen some of our pageant patients on the main website. You, too, may option for a runway bright smile. The options mentioned above are highly customizable. Not every person needs (or wants) to have teeth whitened by many shades.
