What is Hollywood Smile or Smile Makeover?
Hollywood smile is an aesthetic procedure in which we carry out a total smile makeover, which lifts a person’s confidence, beauty and charisma. It is done using veneers, which are thin layers of porcelain or composite that cover the teeth. Veneers are durable, strong and extremely easy to maintain, just like one maintains their own teeth.
The key purpose is to enhance the appearance of one’s teeth and deliver a beautiful smile. In most cases the front top 10 and bottom 10 teeth are treated and in cases where the patients have a much broader smile, we do treat the other teeth that are visible when the patient smiles.
