I am not happy with my teeth. I keep hearing the best way to change them is the get porcelain veneers. The only people I know of who get those, though, are celebrities. Their smiles always look so perfect that it’s hard to believe they’re natural teeth. I still want my teeth to look normal. I’d hate for everyone I meet to know they weren’t my real teeth. Can they look natural or only Hollywood?
Yes, the best way to improve your smile is with porcelain veneers. As far as them looking perfect or not, that is up to you and the skill of the dentist. What you need is a top of the line cosmetic dentist who knows how to create a beautiful smile with character, instead of flawless.
To be honest, so many patients want that perfect Hollywood smile that a true artist will relish the opportunity to work on the type of smile you are after.
Finding an Expert Cosmetic Dentist
Doing smile makeovers isn’t taught in dental school; nor is cosmetic dentistry a recognized specialty. This means any dentist can call themselves a cosmetic dentist and it is up to them how much training they invest in. This puts patients in quite a quandary.
My suggestion is you look for a dentist who has reached accreditation with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. AACD accredited dentists have proven skill and artistry. They can give you any type of smile you want.
I will suggest you get your teeth whitened as a first step. That can be done by any dentist. But, you will not want to place porcelain veneers on your bottom arch of teeth because of the cost, so getting your teeth whitened allows the two arches to blend together.
