Patients beware, not all “Hollywood” smiles are created equal. I can’t count how many times I see real celebrities or “insta-celebrities” with hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram advertising about their newly-acquired Hollywood smile.
The notion of a “Hollywood” smile has been largely created by media outlets over the past several decades. Many celebrities grace the covers of magazines like US Weekly, People, and The Enquirer after cosmetic procedures performed for their red carpet events. Smile makeovers are quite common among these cosmetic procedures loved by the Hollywood elite.
A once unnoticeable or crooked smile of your favorite celebrity now has sparkling white symmetrical teeth. If this is the standard for what you are looking for then be prepared to spend big dollars to have your smile curated by a top clinician. Smiles can range anywhere from 40k-150k dirhams.
As with most things in life, you pay for what you get. Don’t be fooled by offers for insanely cheap veneers or “Hollywood Smiles”. The best smile in the world is truly at the hands of a great dental technician who creates the teeth. The work of master ceramists cost much than that of an average ceramist. Therefore the overall cost for the teeth is much more depending on who your dentist is uses to make the teeth.
Do good homework and find an esthetic dentist who has a portfolio of his work. Ask lots of questions and don’t hesitate to get a second opinion. This will drastically increase your chances of obtaining that perfect “Hollywood Smile”.
