What is a Hollywood Smile Makeover?
A Hollywood smile makeover refers to a strategically designed set of dental treatments to help you achieve your teeth’ desired shape, size, and color. It is a complete smile redesigning process during which a dentist analyzes your teeth from all cosmetic and functional aspects and applies changes where necessary. With all your cosmetic dental issues addressed, you get a smile that helps enhance your face’s natural beauty and charm.
Are you a Good Candidate for Hollywood Smile Design?
Almost all patients willing to get an impressive smile are potential candidates for a Hollywood smile makeover. However, some criteria must be met, mainly concerning the jaws and teeth condition. Moreover, a candidate for a smile makeover should be ready to undergo multiple dental procedures to achieve the desired results.
The candidacy requirements for a Hollywood smile makeover differ based on the type of treatment procedure selected. Let’s have a brief look at these requirements.
Hollywood Smile Makeover with Veneers
Hollywood smile makeover achieved through veneers is the least invasive process as it only requires minor etching on the veneer-recipient teeth. However, some limitations do exist with this procedure. For example, veneers can only correct the teeth’ shape with minor irregularities. Sure, you will get a significant cosmetic benefit from this option, but it won’t fix severely misaligned teeth.
Hollywood Smile Makeover with Crowns and Bridges
Patients with missing teeth or missing parts of teeth can benefit from dental crowns – the caps cemented on top of damaged teeth. In case of multiple missing teeth in a row, your dentist will place a bridge that fills the gap with prosthetic teeth. A dental bridge typically uses one or two healthy teeth as anchors. The end of the bridge fitted over an anchor tooth is a crown.
There must be enough healthy root structure on both sides of the jaws to place a dental crown or bridge properly. Candidates for a smile makeover with a crown or bridge typically have a significant irregularity of the dental structure. Still, this irregularity is not substantial enough to require a dental implant.
Hollywood Smile Makeover with Crowns on Implants
Patients with no tooth root but sufficient jawbone are good candidates for dental implants. These metallic posts are driven into the jawbone and act as tooth roots after getting fused with the bone. This is one of the most advanced dental treatments and the best a patient can get from a dental clinic. Dental implants are a good option for individuals with any number of missing teeth.

Treatments Involved in Hollywood Smile Makeover
A Hollywood smile makeover involves several treatments to help address different cosmetic issues with teeth. The most common method used in Hollywood smile makeover is dental veneering. Other treatment options include dental crowns, bridges, implants, and teeth whitening.
Porcelain veneers are the simplest and cheapest way to achieve a Hollywood or celebrity smile. These veneers are thin shells of porcelain or ceramic and are generally fused to your front teeth to improve their aesthetics. This treatment allows you to modify your teeth’ shape, color, and size. In the end, you get a straighter and more attractive smile.
Veneers usually help address the following issues:
- Dental misalignment
- A gummy smile
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Since porcelain veneers are primarily an aesthetic treatment, they do not support chewing. For this reason, veneers are well-suited for front teeth.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
Unlike dental veneers that only beautify the front of your teeth, dental crowns and bridges are a functional as well as an aesthetic fix for your teeth. Crowns and bridges provide structural reinforcement in the mouth by protecting weak and fractured teeth and filling the gaps left by missing teeth. Whether or not you need this prosthetic solution as a part of your Hollywood smile makeover will be best determined by a dentist.
In some cases, you may need a replacement for your tooth or teeth as a part of your smile makeover treatment. You can achieve this with a dental implant, which is as strong and functional as a natural tooth root. If you have one or more missing teeth and want to improve your smile’s function and aesthetics, a dental implant is a suitable option.
The teeth straightening process will help you get a celebrity smile if your primary concern is the crookedness of your teeth. One of the options in this regard is Invisalign, a widely renowned teeth-straightening alternative to traditional braces. This treatment uses a series of plastic molds that apply pressure to your teeth to bring them into alignment.
Even if your teeth are perfectly aligned and in a symmetrical arrangement, you wouldn’t have a Hollywood smile with stained teeth. For this reason, teeth whitening is considered one of the necessary procedures included in a Hollywood smile makeover. The latest advancement in teeth whitening is the Zoom, the option that uses laser technology to help you get a whiter set of teeth in less than an hour.

Hollywood Smile FAQs
Why is it called Hollywood smile?
The term "Hollywood smile" became famous in 1928 when a dentist named Dr. Charles Pincus used dental veneers for smile enhancement of on-screen actors. These veneers were initially a temporary aesthetic solution but became a Hollywood trademark after some time.
How long does the Hollywood smile last?
The longevity of a Hollywood smile depends on the treatment that enhanced your dental appearance. For example, a dental veneer can last 10-15 years. The average lifespan of dental crowns is 15 years; Dental bridges can last 5-7 years; dental implants can last more than 20 years. Practicing good oral hygiene and shunning bad dental habits will help you retain your Hollywood smile for even longer.
Is the Hollywood smile the same as veneers?
Veneers are one of many treatment options used in a Hollywood smile makeover. These thin ceramic shells conceal unsightly dental irregularities and redefine your smile. Typically, the problems treated with dental veneers include cracks in the teeth, crookedness, damaged tooth enamel, and discoloration.
Is a Hollywood smile good for teeth?
Aside from providing aesthetic benefits, some Hollywood smile treatments reinforce your teeth' structure. For example, dental veneers can help prevent further weakening of tooth enamel or cover cracks in teeth. Dental crowns restore the function of severely damaged teeth. Dental bridges prevent the nearby teeth from shifting towards the gap left by missing teeth. And dental implants stimulate your jawbone, preventing its deterioration after tooth loss.
Is Hollywood smile safe?
A Hollywood smile makeover is a safe and trustable option to improve your smile aesthetics. In fact, several treatments included in this program benefit your dental structure by rectifying its weak links, such as cracks, chips, and missing teeth.
