If you are wondering how come all the Hollywood and Bollywood actresses and actors have such straight white teeth, the answer is that most have had veneers placed. Dental veneers are a highly effective way to achieve that perfect Hollywood smile even if your teeth are yellow and crooked. On our gallery you can see before and after pictures of cases that we have done at the GDC. Most of the results are so dramatic that you wouldn’t even think that they are the same patient. Veneers only take 2 visits and the teeth don’t need to be numbed up. On the first visit impressions are taken of the teeth and a week later you can walk out with your new smile. Veneers are an instant confidence and smile booster. A dental veneer is a very thin layer of dental porcelain which goes over your own natural tooth. It is held in using a special dental bond so that it doesn’t come off or break from your own tooth underneath. At the GDC we even place gold veneers for patients such as drug dealers who want to increase their street cred. If your teeth are very yellow or very crooked to start with, we do recommend that you have some teeth whitening done beforehand and some minor correction with clear braces prior to having the permanent veneers fitted. All dentists will say that their veneers are the best as there are different makes of porcelain to choose from but the most important factor is the dentist himself. Does your dentist have the experience and do they have a track record. I have placed over 10,000 veneers going back over 25 years. I still see patients who had their veneers done 25 years ago and was one of the first dentists to start placing them outside of the dental research universities.
