Dazzle With A Hollywood Smile [Blog]
If you didn’t realize the Golden Globes have already aired, then you’re like many of us. And the same goes for the Academy Awards that happen next month. Whether you love going through all the photos of actresses dresses online, checking out the actors’ latest hairstyles, or ignoring it all, there’s one thing you might have in common with these celebrities: a Hollywood smile.
If you aren’t the biggest fan of your smile, this might seem like an odd statement to you. But with our Gillette, WY cosmetic dentist’s exceptional skills, our high-quality materials, and our artistic eye, you too can have a red-carpet-worthy smile!
To find out how to get others to notice your smile – in a good way – call 307-682-3100 today for a consultation with Dr. David Porter. In the meantime, read on to find out three common cosmetic treatments we use to give our patients smiles they never thought they could have.
Opt for Our Cosmetic Catch-All: Dental Veneers
If you want a perfect smile in all aspects, veneers may be the ideal solution for you. They’re beloved by our patients because they cover the whole front surface of a tooth, which means they conceal anything below the surface. That includes:
- Stains, even those caused by medications
- Pointy teeth
- Teeth that appear short
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Slightly crooked or misaligned teeth (hence their name “instant orthodontics”)
- Irregular surfaces, like pits
Though veneers aren’t necessarily an “instant” process, they do typically take just two visits. And once Dr. Porter cements them to your teeth, they do instantly cover those flaws. By providing an extra layer over your tooth, they also protect the structure.
We offer three types of custom veneers: traditional porcelain veneers, e.max ceramic veneers, and no-prep veneers. Any option can cover all the teeth that show when you smile or individual teeth that you want to transform. We’ll work with you to get the desired color, length, and shape that looks natural.
Our porcelain and e.max veneers look the most like natural teeth. In fact, no one will know the difference, just that your teeth now look flawless. That’s why most celebrities with great smiles choose these type of veneers. And they can last up to two decades if cared for properly. That does make them more expensive than our no-prep veneers, which we can place in one visit and which are reversible in many cases. Ask Dr. Porter which type of veneer is right for you.
Choose a Veneers Alternative: Dental Bonding
Another treatment we often use to enhance teeth is dental bonding . Cosmetic bonding, as it’s often called, can take care of the same problems as veneers. Like veneers, we’ll match it to the rest of your smile. However, the composite resin material usually doesn’t last as long as porcelain or ceramic veneers.
Bonding may be better for you if:
- You simply want to fix small, isolated flaws
- You need a fast solution, since it takes just one visit in most cases
- You need an affordable option
- You are still deciding on veneers as a long-term option
- You want a reversible treatment with no tooth preparation
Pick the Bleaching Treatment You Want: Dental Whitening
If your biggest goal is to get a bright smile, then ask us about teeth whitening. Some folks have no other smile imperfections than yellow, darkened, stained, or discolored teeth. This subtle treatment, however, can make a dramatic difference not only for your smile’s appearance but for your overall appearance as well. If you think about your favorite actors, chances are their white teeth are one of the most noticeable aspects of their smiles.
At Synergy Dental Center, we use one of the most trusted whitening treatments: KoR deep bleaching . In fact, some celebrities have used this to get their teeth whiter. KoR can brighten teeth up to 16 shades or more, even eliminating stains caused by medications. You can get your teeth bleached in the office or at home, or even a combination for the best results.
Many of our patients get their teeth white with KoR before getting veneers or bonding. That way, we can match the bonding or veneers to their white teeth.
Make Over Your Smile
There’s so much more that we offer to put the finishing touches on your smile. These include:
- Several kinds of quick braces and invisible aligners
- Gum reshaping
- Teeth reshaping
- Nonmetal porcelain crowns
- Dermal fillers to enhance your facial features after we’ve enhanced your smile
A Hollywood smile isn’t just for celebrities anymore. With the right Gillette cosmetic dentist, the right treatments, and the right preparation, you too can show off the smile of your dreams. Call 307-682-3100 to get started, or use our online form .
