What is a Hollywood Smile?

A Hollywood Smile is the process of improving the color, the shape and the alignment of your teeth, by using different methods such as porcelain veneers, ceramic crowns, braces or even whitening.

Veneers are made of the finest ceramics that guarantee the natural aspect of original teeth.

How Many Visits Do I Need?

Porcelain veneers generally require two to three office visits. The time needed to finish the ceramic veneers is around 5 days.

1. On your first visit, you will discuss with your dentist the pros and cons of placing veneers on your teeth. We will closely and meticulously study your smile by taking photos, x-rays and an impression of your teeth to prepare a wax-up. The wax-up will give you an idea of the final result before starting the treatment. You will be able to even TRY the temporaries in order to see the shape of your future teeth before even starting the treatment. As for the colors of the veneers, it will also be discussed in details by showing you several shades.

2. On your second visit, we will slightly reduce the enamel of your teeth to make room for the veneers. An impression is then taken so that the porcelain veneer can be fabricated in the dental lab.

3. On your third visit, the veneers are bonded to your teeth.

You can be sure that your new smile will look so natural no one will ever notice you have veneers! We provide a 5-year warranty on the veneers,  the warranty stays valid, only in case of regular maintenance and checkups at our premises

What is a Mock-up?

A mock-up is a prototype prosthesis, consisting of temporary crowns or veneers, which is useful for diagnostic and verifying aesthetics. Dentists and prosthodontists use mock-ups as a treatment phase.
Mock-ups can be seen as a smile simulation, which happens directly over someone’s teeth, testing what the ensemble of the smile and teeth would look like. These temporary crowns and veneers would correct the shape and colour of teeth in order to analyze the changes that must be done with the permanent treatment.
Mock-ups are only temporary; they could not be kept on teeth permanently.
