Your Hollywood Smile Is In Reach
Have you ever looked at the “before they were famous” pictures of celebrities? You’ll notice many of them didn’t start out with the photo-perfect smiles they have today. In the early days of Hollywood, a dentist named Charles Pincus created the first dental veneers in 1928. Veneers came about as a request to change the appearance of an actor’s teeth. These early veneers were the beginnings of the Hollywood smile. As time went on, dentists refined the process of making veneers and perfected it to what we have today.
Maybe you’re not a celebrity, but your Hollywood smile is within reach.
Are you reluctant to show your smile? What would you change about it? When you’re not comfortable with your smile, it affects your self-confidence. Your smile is generally the first thing people notice about you. Dental veneers offer a minimally invasive way to achieve a dazzling smile. At Smiles by Holsinger and Higgins, we can give you a Hollywood smile with porcelain veneers.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, porcelain, tooth-colored shells bonded to your natural teeth. They can alter the shape, color, and size of your teeth. Veneers are the perfect solution for small imperfections.
Porcelain veneers can help with:
- Worn enamel
- Chipped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Uneven teeth
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
- Dental veneers look natural because of custom shading.
- Veneers are durable. They can last 10 to 15 years with proper care.
- Veneers are resistant to staining.
- Maintaining your dental veneers is simple; brush and floss them like your natural teeth.
- The preparation of your teeth for veneers is minimally invasive.
- Turnaround time for veneers is generally two visits, 2 to 3 weeks apart.
Porcelain Veneers Process
The dentist trims a minimal amount of enamel to prepare the teeth for the veneers. Then, the dentist takes impressions to make your veneers. We send the impressions and customized shade to the lab for processing. On your next visit, the dentist checks the fit and color of the veneers. The dentist applies the veneers to your teeth with a special cement. You leave the office with your Hollywood smile.
