Did you know that veneers originated in Hollywood in the 1920s? They were used as a way to make actors’ and actresses’ smiles more attractive while on screen. At that time they were a temporary application like Hollywood makeup is today. Now you know why, even back then, everyone on screen had “movie star” smiles. It wasn’t until the 1980s that veneers were used as dental restorations and permanently bonded to teeth, and cosmetic dentistry took off. You can even see before and after pictures of celebrity’s smiles such as Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey on the internet. However, cosmetic dentistry is no longer just for the movie stars. Even you can refresh your smile with porcelain veneers.
You have probably heard of dental bridges. They are a dental prosthetic that are used to replace a single missing tooth, or a few missing teeth. A bridge can be fixed or removable. Dental porcelain is a ceramic material that is biocompatible and life-like. It is used to fabricate dental crowns, bridges, and veneers. Porcelain is effective in providing the form, function, and esthetics of natural teeth. It is also known for its durability and longevity. Dental bridges are economical and will last for years. There are many different types of bridges, but today we give the scoop on porcelain fixed bridges.
Spring has sprung and what better time to have white teeth? The merry month of May is right around the corner and it’s a time of new beginnings and possible romance. There are many ways to whiten your teeth. Over-the-counter whitening kits are cheap, but they are not fast. They can take days and weeks to accomplish what one hour in the office can do, easier and better. Teeth whitening can have successful results when removing extrinsic stains such as red wine, coffee, tea, cola, and tobacco stains. White teeth can restore your smile and your self-confidence.
