Celebrity Smiles: Are Veneers For You?

Each and every day we’re bombarded with images of celebrities sporting the most beautiful, perfectly formed smiles. One look at a before and after photo of Tom Cruise, for example, or even Demi Moore, and you’ll see just how powerful teeth can be when it comes to your overall look. No longer are perfect pearly whites the reserve of famous folk in Hollywood; with cosmetic dentistry making bigger and better strides every day here in Ireland, your own celebrity smile is within reach. Here we round up some of our favourite celebrity smiles, complete with some much-needed advice on everything from veneers to teeth whitening from Seapoint Clinic.

What scenario are you best off getting veneers instead of orthodontic work?

Veneers are becoming more popular, but it really depends on the person’s needs and their teeth, which is the right way to go. Orthodontic treatment is not suitable for everyone but it would still be the more common route at Seapoint Clinic, based on the clients we see. Braces treatments can range from 6 months to 3-4 years at times and this won’t suit some people simply because of the length of time, so for those we would look to see if veneers will work suitably as the alternative.

What’s the process involved with getting veneers, what can people expect?

Veneers are carefully and characteristically designed to suit an individual person using our innovative Smile Design process. You get to see the veneers before they begin to make sure they are the option that you want, and for us to see what will work best for you. It usually takes about 2-4 week to have a complete smile makeover.

And for those who don’t know, what exactly are veneers?

Think of a false fingernail applied over your own fingernail. They are contact lens-thin porcelain covers that are secured in place with an incredibly strong bond.

Should you go down the cosmetic procedure route, Seapoint has just launched an incredible innovation in modern dentistry. The Seapoint Smile Design is an exciting new technology which allows patients to co-design their brand new smile and visualise what their new smile will look like before embarking on any dental work.
