Processes for Hollywood smile
You smile depends on many factors like your age, face line, lip and gender. Personalised smile design starts by determining face shape and teeth form for that face shape. Front two teeth are longer than others in women. There are small gaps between neighbouring teeth. Teeth corners are softer and smile line has an upward curve. In men, neighbouring teeth are connected on a straighter line. Teeth line is clearer and smile line is straighter. When needed, porcelain veneer, teeth whitening and implant treatment are procedures applied in Hollywood smile design.
Porcelain veneer: These are porcelain leaf coating for non-aesthetic looking teeth like crooked, spaced, broken or yellow teeth. After teeth surfaces are slightly corroded, these veneers are applied on front part of teeth. There is minimum intervention to teeth tissue. This way, teeth structure is preserved and this procedure is completed in short time. Since porcelain veneer can pass the light, it is impossible to distinguish it from original teeth and these veneers will not change colour.
