A phrase "Hollywood smile" is used so often today that few people think of its origin. Everyone just knows that this means white, uniform teeth.
The term “Hollywood smile” was first used by American dentist Charles Pinkus in the thirties of the last century. At that time, many movie actors did not have perfectly white, straight teeth. Pincus was well aware that a perfect smile for the actors is of great importance. That's why he tried to help many Hollywood stars achieve dazzling white teeth.
Pincus became the inventor of the "Hollywood Laminates" technology, which consisted of using ceramic veneers that were attached to actors' teeth with a special glue. However, at that time there was no way to ensure a lasting fixation of the veneers, so they were only worn during the filming period.
Thus, the term "Hollywood smile" spread and became a symbol of healthy, uniform, beautiful and dazzling white teeth, as well as a sign of the success of their owner.
Over the years, scientists have constantly created new ceramic and composite materials, invented various technologies that have brought cosmetic dentistry to a high level of development. Today anyone can own a sparkling smile.
If you have naturally straight teeth of the correct shape and position, you can have them whitened using tooth whitening. But the whitening effect does not last more than a year. Then you have to repeat the procedure.
To obtain the lasting result, ceramic veneers are used. Veneers are recommended to correct small imperfections of the teeth such as color, stains on the teeth, incorrect size etc. We can create “hollywood smile” with facets. The veneer covers the front of the tooth and thus creates the perfect aesthetic. The veneers do not change color over time and the result will be solid and natural.
The same effect can be achieved with ceramic crowns. Unlike veneers, they are used for crooked and irregular teeth. Thanks to the crowns we can protect, strengthen the teeth as well as create a Hollywood smile.
Modern processing methods and materials allow you to have a Hollywood smile within days.
