How do the top celebrities you see in movies and on television get their picture-perfect, gleaming smiles? It’s more than just genetics – the secret lies with their cosmetic dentists, who can provide them with the help they need to get a Hollywood smile.
Many of the same procedures available to top Hollywood stars are also available to the average person. For a few thousand dollars, a person can get porcelain veneers to straighten their teeth and make their teeth bright and white. For many people, this is a way to regain self-confidence after years of being afraid to smile because of cracked, chipped or discolored teeth.
However, what looks great on film might be overwhelming in real life. It’s important to work with your cosmetic dentist to create a game plan for your teeth that leaves them looking beautiful without being distracting. A good set of teeth should look natural and not “whiter than white.” After all, you don’t want people reaching for their sunglasses every time you smile.
