However, did you know that many celebrities use veneers to give them that perfect smile? You can get it too thanks to porcelain veneers in Frisco. Check out how many celebrities have veneers and what the process of getting veneers entails.
Which Celebrities Have Porcelain Veneers
You may be surprised just how many celebrities make use of porcelain veneers. Tom Cruise, the star of such movies like “Top Gun”, “Rainman,” and the Mission Impossible series, started with teeth-whitening and straightening at the start of his career. Eventually, he upgraded to a full row of porcelain veneers.
Famous actress and singer Hillary Duff also received a full a set of veneers, even after only her front tooth was chipped by a microphone during a live performance. Now her smile looks better than ever before.
George Clooney, one of Hollywood’s most prolific actors, isn’t so handsome entirely on his own. He benefitted tremendously from a full set of porcelain veneers. Apparently, he also suffers from bruxism, or chronic teeth grinding while sleeping, creating the need for cosmetic treatment.
Other Common Cosmetic Treatments
While porcelain veneers can provide one of the most dramatic transformations in smiles, other cosmetic treatments are typically used in tandem with veneers. Teeth-whitening is also used to maintain the whiteness of porcelain veneers. They can provide touch-ups to keep teeth white for years to come.
Additionally, porcelain crowns are ideal for restoring a smile for broken or cracked teeth. While veneers are more designed for cosmetic purposes, crowns can also prevent bacteria from getting through the vulnerable areas of your mouth. Talk to your cosmetic dentist in Frisco to determine which treatment is the most ideal for you.
The Treatment Process for Porcelain Veneers
Getting porcelain veneers is a pretty simple process consisting of two visits. After the dentist exams your mouth, they can start developing a cosmetic plan to improve your smile’s appearance. First, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth so they can create the custom veneer. While it’s being fabricated, you’ll be able to wear a temporary veneer so you can adjust to your new look.
After the custom veneer is produced, they’ll apply a bonding material to your tooth and then place the veneer on top. They’ll most likely use a curing light to speed up the hardening process. After placement, you’ll care for the veneers just like regular teeth, brushing and flossing as usual. Make sure to watch out for hard or sticky foods that could damage or even remove the veneer. If you play impact sports, always wear a mouthguard to protect your investment.
