People seek a Hollywood dentist for a number of different reasons. Some people want to look younger and there is no doubt that a dental facelift can do just that. Other people may have had unattractive teeth for as long as they can remember and have always been self conscious as a result.
There are procedures available today that were unheard of some years ago, these procedures range from simple teeth whitening, to porcelain veneers to dental implants. In many cases the patient will opt for a combination of procedures to achieve the optimum result.
Let’s have a look at a few of the most popular treatments that are offered by a Hollywood dentist:
Porcelain veneers: Veneers are very thin porcelain wafers that are custom made to fit the front of the teeth, they are ideal for those patients who have teeth which are chipped, cracked and stained, they also can reduce the gap between teeth if necessary. Veneers are what gives movie and TV personalities their gorgeous smiles.
The procedure is actually quite simple. The dentist removes a very thin amount of the enamel on the tooth, molds are then taken and the dental technicians, using the molds, custom make the veneers. During the time it takes to produce the veneers, temporary covers are placed on the tooth.
Veneers are ideal; the cost is dependent on the number of veneers that the Hollywood dentist feels are necessary to achieve the desired effect. The usual number is 12; six on the top and six on the bottom.
Teeth whitening: This is another common procedure; it uses materials which include peroxide which whitens the dentin. Before the teeth are treated all cavities must be attended to and the patient must have healthy gums. The dentist makes an impression of the teeth, from this impression a custom made tray is produced, the tray is that which holds the whitening gel. This is the approach that is used when the procedure takes place in the patient’s home; when it is performed in the dentist’s office the results are better and faster. A laser is used to activate the peroxide, the process takes about one hour and the results can be dramatic.
A Hollywood dentist can perform other procedures, all of which improve the looks of the patient’s teeth, mouth and smile. The dentist can replace old amalgam fillings with tooth colored resin, shape the teeth and replace a missing tooth with a dental implant. A Hollywood dentist is really a master at combining art with science to get the results the patient is looking for.
