VivicasVeneerstheMakingofaHollywoodSmile

What's an actor's most important feature? According to Vivica A. Fox, whose most recent big-screen role was in Independence Day: Resurgence, it's what you see right up front.

"On screen, your smile and your eyes are the most inviting things that bring the audience in" she said. "Especially if you play the hot chick."

But like lots of people, Vivica reached a point where she felt her smile needed a little help in order to look its best. That's when she turned to a popular cosmetic dental treatment.

"I got veneers years ago," Ms. Fox told Dear Doctor magazine in a recent interview, "just because I had some gapping that probably only I noticed."

What exactly are dental veneers? Essentially, they are thin shells of lustrous porcelain that are permanently attached to the front surfaces of the teeth. Tough, lifelike and stain-resistant, they can cover up a number of defects in your smile — including stains, chips, cracks, and even minor spacing irregularities like the ones Vivica had.

Veneers have become the treatment of choice for Hollywood celebs — and lots of regular folks too — for many reasons. Unlike some treatments that can take many months, it takes just a few appointments to have veneers placed on your teeth. Because they are custom made just for you, they allow you to decide how bright you want your smile to be: anywhere from a natural pearly hue to a brilliant "Hollywood white." Best of all, they are easy to maintain, and can last for many years with only routine care.

To place traditional veneers, it's necessary to prepare the tooth by removing a small amount (a millimeter or two) of its enamel surface. This keeps it from feeling too big — but it also means the treatment can't be reversed, so once you get veneers, you'll always have them. In certain situations, "no-prep" or minimal-prep veneers, which require little or no removal of tooth enamel, may be an option for some people.

Veneers aren't the only way to create a better smile: Teeth whitening, crowns or orthodontic work may also be an alternative. But for many, veneers are the preferred option. What does Vivica think of hers?

"I love my veneers!" she declared, noting that they have held up well for over a decade.

With all the tasty treats and delicious sweets offered in today, it's no surprise that people from around the nation are turning to dentists to patch up their poor dental health. One of the most common reasons for dental dysfunction plaguing our nation today is unsightly, discolored teeth that have been stained over time by the foods we eat and the beverages we drink.Veneers

But at Reserve Dental Group, your imperfect smile can retain its former glory using dependable and lasting porcelain veneers, which are thin porcelain shells placed on the front of your teeth that show off a realistic white shine for all your future smiles! Alfred W. Huber, DDS, PA, and his team of dentists have stood by porcelain veneers for years, as they've been found time and time again to shore up many symptoms of cosmetic dental dysfunction without pain or other inconveniences.

Take a look at the types of teeth veneers are made to overcome below:

  • chipped
  • discolored
  • stained
  • crooked
  • misaligned

Plus, veneers are made from extremely strong materials that should last forever once they've been bonded to your teeth, and are incredibly translucent to the point where onlookers will be pleasantly surprised at how beautiful your smile has become.

Veneers offered at Reserve Dental Group are the leading choice for whitened smiles, as they're superior to crowns because they don't need your teeth to be trimmed before being placed. The procedure only takes up to two dental visits, too, allowing you the convenience you seek in achieving a beautiful smile.

Caring For Your Veneers

Once you have veneers, it's up to you to maintain their beauty in your mouth, as brushing twice each day and flossing at least once are imperative to continuing their effectiveness. Also, sticking with your regular dental check-ups is important if you want to keep that newly-formed grin intact.
