The Difference Between Dental Veneers and Hollywood Smile

Dental veneers and Hollywood smile are techniques that many patients seek due to the desired results obtained after their application. They are known for their ease of application and the speed of achieving results. The fundamental difference between them is that dental veneers are not installed on the entire tooth but only on a part of it, usually its top, with the purpose of protecting the tooth or hiding a defect in it. In contrast, Hollywood smile relies on installing lenses or shells over the entire tooth surface, making it suitable for all teeth of both jaws with the aim of hiding imperfections and improving the overall appearance or solving health issues like the problem of gaps between the front teeth.

Dental Veneers

The main role of dental veneers is to protect the teeth from damage in case of fractures and to preserve implanted teeth or those that have undergone nerve filling. The protection is through enclosing the teeth with a casing that works to restore the strength of the dental structure after treatment and prevent decay or fractures or infection.

Hollywood Smile

The Hollywood smile technique involves thin veneers or lenses that cover the surface of teeth suffering from any defects or deformities, thus improving their color to be bright white and their shape, length, and alignment with the jaw and mouth. Consequently, this leads to an improvement in the general appearance. These lenses are always made of porcelain material that resists staining and closely resembles the shape and color of natural teeth, adding smoothness and shine to the overall appearance of the teeth.

The Difference Between Dental Veneers and Hollywood Smile in Terms of Type of Installations

There are many differences between dental veneers and Hollywood smile, but the difference in terms of type of installations is that dental veneers consist of thick crowns or teeth made of metals or porcelain or a mixture of them that require removing part of the enamel layer so they can be installed over the entire tooth structure. In contrast, Hollywood smile involves thin porcelain veneers or lenses that are fixed on the front part of the teeth.

General Tips After Dental Installations

There are some tips that doctors give to patients after dental installations, which include the following:

  • Using a Waterpik device that helps remove food remnants stuck between the permanent installations and teeth.
  • Placing the removable installations in a medical solution during sleep at night to eliminate bacteria stuck on their surface.
  • Always ensuring gum and tongue cleanliness with a brush to prevent infection from transferring to the teeth and causing decay and other numerous complications.
  • Ensuring to rinse with water after every meal to remove remnants and impurities from the surface of the teeth in addition to removing and washing the removable installations with water.
  • Regular follow-up with the doctor every 6 months or a year to ensure the installations are in good condition.

What are the Risks of Dental Veneers and Hollywood Smile?

There are harms to the patient when installing dental veneers, which include the following:

  • Tooth sensitivity towards some types of drinks and foods.
  • Appearance of staining on metallic porcelain installations only, not appearing on porcelain veneers.
  • Inability to treat problems of tooth fragility.

However, harms of dental veneers include the following:

  • Causing weakness and fragility of the tooth structure due to removing part of the enamel layer covering it.
  • Appearance of tooth sensitivity symptoms towards some foods and drinks, especially cold and hot items.
  • Gum pain.
  • Metallic porcelain installations appear as thin, dark lines between the natural teeth and the veneer.

How to Get a Hollywood Smile and Dental Veneers

The steps followed by the doctor to install a Hollywood smile include the following:

  • A visual examination by the doctor in the first session and, if necessary, some X-rays and medical tests may be requested to assist in the diagnostic process.
  • Establishing an appropriate treatment protocol for the case after consulting the patient and understanding their desires.
  • If the doctor and patient agree on proceeding with the Hollywood smile, the doctor will take measurements of the patient’s teeth and then send them to the lab for manufacturing the lenses to those exact measurements.
  • Preparing the teeth for the installation of Hollywood smile lenses in the second session.
  • In the third session, the doctor installs the Hollywood smile on the surface of the teeth using an adhesive material.

The steps for installing dental veneers are:

  • The first session includes the doctor examining the teeth and mouth, evaluating the health situation, identifying the problem, and looking for a suitable treatment for the patient’s case, which may include installing dental veneers.
  • In the second session, the doctor prepares the teeth for the installations after agreeing on the treatment protocol with the patient.
  • The third session involves the doctor testing the teeth’s sensitivity reaction by installing temporary veneers for several days.
  • The fourth session includes the doctor confirming the teeth’s positive response to the installations, which allows for replacing the temporary installations with permanent ones.

Cost of Hollywood Smile and Dental Veneers

A Hollywood smile is a cosmetic technique performed by doctors in many cases suffering from deformities and defects in the teeth, making it include other techniques such as orthodontics or installing cosmetic fillings, in addition to cleaning and whitening sessions, which makes its price slightly high, ranging between 78,500 and 157,000 Egyptian pounds.

The price of a single dental veneer, which addresses many problems, generally ranges between 2,000 and 4,000 Egyptian pounds, while the price of the more sought-after porcelain veneer ranges between 2,000 and 3,000 Egyptian pounds.

Treatment Duration for Hollywood Smile and Dental Veneers

Dental veneers require teeth grinding before placing the veneer to prepare the teeth for the installation process. In this case, the doctor tests the teeth’s sensitivity reaction by placing a temporary veneer on its surface for two or three weeks, and if the results are positive, the doctor replaces the temporary veneer with a permanent one, which lasts from 5 to 15 years and often for a lifetime with proper care.

On the other hand, a Hollywood smile does not require teeth grinding or, at most, very slight removal of the outer layer of the teeth to install the lenses on its surface. The smile can be installed in one session in the absence of any problems, and in complex cases, it may need 3 sessions, so it can be installed within a week or 3 weeks and lasts from 8 to 10 years or more with care. Do not settle for traditional braces, choose a Hollywood smile for a unique experience at The Dental Center.
