Getting that Perfect Celebrity Smile: Porcelain Veneers and Dental Implants

Posted on September 17, 2013 by Dr. Mal Braverman

Most celebrities, whether movie stars or television personalities, have such perfect teeth, straight and white, and such stunning smiles that you might wonder how they get them. Maybe you assume that a perfect smile is not attainable, especially if you have missing, misaligned or discolored teeth. Nothing could be further from the truth. No matter what the condition of your teeth, it is possible to get them bright and beautiful with help from an expert cosmetic dentist. You, too, can be proud of your own perfect smile.

Dental Implants

There are two popular procedures that help celebrities achieve their perfect smiles. First are dental implants. Dental Implants are used as replacements for lost or missing teeth and are intended to provide a more natural and comfortable option than dentures. A root is created, usually of titanium, to make support within the bone for a restored tooth or teeth. This helps them to feel more like actual teeth, and the implants are permanent.

Another feature of dental implants is that they do not impair speech the way dentures can. They do not slip inside the mouth and cause slurring. They do not need to be removed like dentures, and because they can’t move around, chewing is not difficult. You can eat whatever you want without worry. Besides the convenience and permanence, implants look more natural, so you gain confidence and feel more comfortable with your smile.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are actually a thin covering placed over the teeth to give them a nice appearance. The veneers are custom fitted and designed to cover the front of the teeth, changing the look of the teeth to make them more appealing. A ceramist will craft the porcelain veneers, hand-painting them to give them just the right look.

Veneers can help to cover teeth that have become discolored or stained. They can help with teeth that are broken or chipped to give them back their full shape. They can fill in gaps between teeth or correct the shape of teeth that might be irregular or uneven, and they can add length back to teeth that have worn down over time. Porcelain veneers tend to give a better and more natural look than crowns. They are a great way to create a perfect smile or to restore a smile that has been lost with age.
