Hollywood smiles have become increasingly popular over recent years. Many patients are now seeking to improve their smile in line with A-List celebrities. A Hollywood smile is seen as teeth that are white and well-aligned. Therefore, we offer a variety of aesthetic veneers in the shades on the Vita Shade Guide.
1. We first assess your smile with a FREE Cosmetic consultation to see if your teeth and bite is suitable for porcelain veneers. If necessary Teeth whitening is carried out to improve the shade of teeth.
2. The option to have a trial smile completed will be offered to explore the most suitable designs before any treatment starts.
3. We then prepare the teeth for porcelain veneers and ensure that we only remove minimal tooth tissue. Temporary veneers will be fitted while the permanent veneers are made.
4. The porcelain veneers are then constructed by the laboratory and fitted on the patient’s teeth.
Most people opt for 6 or 8 upper front teeth veneers, although a few people also have four upper front teeth.

You will also need to see a dentist at least once a year to ensure that your teeth are kept in good condition. Once porcelain veneers are fitted, you should modify your diet and avoid eating hard or sticky foods or engaging in habits that could break the veneers. You may be asked to wear a soft nightguard at night to protect your veneers from fracture.

If your teeth are misaligned, you could opt to have invisible braces such as Invisalign to straighten your teeth and improve your smile. Chipped, spaced, or worn teeth could have composite bonding applied to improve the shape of your teeth. Composite bonding does not usually involve any tooth tissue removal.
