If you’re anything like us, in just three short days, you will be perched in front of your television watching a parade of celebrities walk the red carpet into Los Angeles’s Dolby Theatre. Yep, the 90th Academy Awards ceremony is Sunday night.
So get ready to be awed by the opulent gowns, dapper tuxedos, glittering jewelry, and — certain exceptions notwithstanding — flawless smiles (which, of course, as dental professionals, are the first things we notice).
Have you ever wondered why so many celebrities have such perfect teeth? While you may think they must have hit the genetic jackpot, the truth is that cosmetic dentistry is big business in Hollywood.
And luckily for the rest of us, you don’t have to be an aspiring star to have teeth like one. A straight, white, blemish-free smile is beneficial whether you’re auditioning for the next Star Wars movie or interviewing for a job right here in Kennewick, WA.
Because when your teeth don’t look good, you don’t feel like your best self. Your confidence will be diminished, which takes a toll on your personal and professional lives.
To learn how cosmetic dentistry can give you a smile that reflects the true you, call Marineland Dental Care at 509-591-0515.
Dental veneers are not only popular in Hollywood, they were created in Hollywood. Back around 1930, the fantastic restorative and cosmetic procedures we have available to us today just did not exist. So movie stars, just like everyone else at the time, often had teeth that were not close-up ready.
Enter Charles Pincus, a Los Angeles dentist. He created the first veneers to make actors’ teeth look flawless in movies. These were temporary, meant to be removed once filming wrapped. It wasn’t until decades later — the 1980s — that advances in technology made permanent veneers possible.
Veneers are ultra-thin shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth, hiding blemishes, stains, gaps, crookedness, and other flaws. At Marineland Dental Care, we offer veneers made of porcelain and composite resin. Both are durable, custom made, and realistic looking. Dr. Hadley will be happy to discuss the pros and cons of each with you.
This procedure utilizes a composite resin material to cover not an entire tooth like a composite veneer, but specific blemishes and flaws. Tooth bonding may be used to hide stains, chips, cracks, gaps, and even minor crookedness. The process is fast and painless. We match the color of the composite material to your tooth color precisely, so the results are completely natural looking.
Crowns and Tooth-Colored Fillings
Here are two procedures that serve both cosmetic and restorative purposes.
If you get a cavity, you no longer need to fill it with an unattractive metal filling. Our composite fillings are matched to your enamel color and completely invisible on your teeth!
A dental crown is a cap that protects and strengthens a tooth that has undergone a root canal, or that is severely decayed, broken, or cracked. It covers discoloration and other blemishes, making the tooth look flawless.
