How to Get a Hollywood Smile
Have you ever wanted a Hollywood smile? Have you ever thought that celebrities seem to have perfect teeth? Well, South Charlotte Dentistry can help you achieve the same look with dental veneers. “A lot of actors have veneers and that’s why look teeth always look camera-ready,” says Dr. James Wells.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are extremely thin, custom-made shells that cover the front surface of your teeth. They are wafer-thin and are made of tooth-colored materials- either porcelain or a resin composite. Veneers are boned to the front of your teeth in order to change the color, shape, size, or lengthen. Porcelain veneers seem to reflect light in a more natural way and also are very resistant to stains. Resin veneers are thinner and therefore require less removal of your tooth surface.
Dental veneers can help if you have problems with discoloration, gaps, chipped or broken, or worn down teeth. “Dental veneers are not just cosmetic, but can help with a variety of problems,” says Dr. Wells.
Getting dental veneers is not a complicated procedure. You will have a consultation with Dr. Wells and discuss the process and cost. The first step is to remove about a ½ millimeter from your tooth enamel. An impression will be made of your teeth and sent to a lab. The lab will construct your veneers. At your next appointment, Dr. Wells will bond the veneers to your teeth. He will expertly trim the veneer repeatedly to get the perfect fit. The process is not complicated, but the results are stunning!
Next time you snap a selfie to post on Instagram- your teeth will be picture perfect! If you are interested in dental veneers, ask Dr. Wells about them at your next appointment or give us a call anytime at 704-759-0908.
