Look at the lovely Hollywood stars Miley Cyrus, Cheryl Cole, Tulisa and Katie Price. Apart from them being beautiful, do you see anything in common in them all? Yes, they are lovely young women with lustrous locks and lovely smiles with pearly white teeth. Ah, now you get it. Their teeth. No one has so perfect, white, picket fence-like teeth unless they have some dental work done. Most Hollywood stars have had cosmetic dental treatment done for their teeth, and if you look at before and after photos, you will immediately notice the difference.
So What Do You Do to Get the Same Exciting Smile?
The good news is that cosmetic dentistry is now available to anyone who wants to improve his or her smile. Almost every dentist is partially a cosmetic dentist, as they are trained to create beautiful fillings invisible to the naked eye. However, cosmetic dentists have additional training, backed by a degree, diploma or a certificate, that helps them create a visual masterpiece in your teeth. If you want to get the same type of smile as seen in these Hollywood celebrities, there are a few things you should know:
Choosing a Dentist
Cosmetic dentists are trained in several niche areas to create the perfect smile. However, this is not as simple as it seems. Everyone has a unique facial structure, and although a training institute will teach the basic principles of smile design, it is up to a talented dentist to actually create the perfect smile for each face. As a result, you have to find a good dentist who has an actual knack for cosmetic dentistry and the eye to create the perfect smile. You can start by checking with the Australian Dental Association to find a dentist. Shortlist two or three different dentists and visit each of them to discuss your case. We also recommend you look at before/after photos to evaluate the dentist’s handiwork. Most dentists are proud of good cosmetic work, and they will happily provide before/after photos and testimonials to help you make a decision. If you are in the Breakfast Point area, you can always get in touch with Canada Bay Dental for an expert opinion.
Deciding on a Type of Treatment
Once you have selected the dentist, he will evaluate your dentition and then recommend a dental procedureto improve your smile. Most dentists will suggest a combination of dental procedures like dental laminates, veneers, inlays and onlays, composite bonding, teeth whitening, implants, full ceramic crowns, gingival remodeling, full mouth reconstruction, etc. The dentist will also take before and after photos to show you the extent of the treatment and to show how it has affected your smile.
Although dentists can do wonderful things with your teeth, it is essential for you to keep reasonable expectations about the procedures. Before the procedures start, make sure you discuss your expectations with the dentist. If you have underlying medical conditions, make sure you disclose them to the dentist. Remember that dentists can do a wonderful job, but only within the framework of your face and existing smile. Many dentists have modeling software that can show exactly how your final smile and dental arrangement will look like.
No matter what procedure is done, the dentist will discuss the procedure and the result with you. There is no reason why your smile will not look anything less than a million bucks after the procedures are complete.
