What are the methods to get a Hollywood smile?
1- Dental Implants in Turkey
A Dental implant is done by using a screw like cylinder object that is called the “Post”. The “post” is made from titanium, as titanium fuses with the jawbone preventing things like slippage or the implant making noises from happening. The “Post” will be surgically placed in the jawbone. Replacing the place where the tooth’s root used to be.
The “Post” will be the root on which another piece called the “abutment”, will be placed inside of. The “abutment” will be inserted by screwing it in the empty space inside the “post’. This piece will serve as the holder for the “crown”.
The crowns that will be placed will be made from ceramic that will make your teeth look bright and realistic. These crowns are made to look like a perfect real tooth. They are durable and strong and can handle anything from biting or chewing. They will last more than 10 years, and require no special care aside from regular oral hygiene like brushing your teeth. If you do not have a strong enough jawbone to support the dental implants, your doctor will have to do bone augmentation procedure or a sinus lift.
Bone augmentation in Turkey:
If you have a weak jawbone that is unable to handle and support your dental implants. Your surgeon will offer to try a bone augmentation in an attempt to regenerate and grow bones on your jawbone. This will be done using bone additives and bone stimulation.
Sinus lift in Turkey:
A sinus lift is performed if the patient’s upper jawbone doesn’t have enough strength and bone density to hold the dental implants. It starts with the surgeon making an incision in the gums on the upper jawbone. Once the jawbone is visible, it is then cut to make a flap which is pressed softly upward into the sinus cavity. After all of that an empty space will be filled with a bone graft which will heal on after time.
2- Veneers in Turkey
What are veneers?
A dental veneer is a very thin shell that is carved out to cover the front of your teeth. Veneers will be custom made and carved according to the shape of your teeth, and the space they will cover. Veneers are made out of many materials that you can choose from, such as porcelain or resin which are used in their making. Dental Veneers are made to look completely natural, giving your teeth a great look and covering any gaps or discoloration on your teeth.
How are veneers applied?
- Before the procedure
The preparation for the veneers placement starts by having the teeth examined by the dentist to ensure that veneers are suitable for you. After that the doctor will assess what teeth will be covered, and size and volume the veneers need to be.
- During the procedure
The doctor will start by administrating to you a local anesthetic, numbing the area that will be worked on. After all that is done the doctor will start shaving off the surface of the teeth that will have veneers placed on them. The doctor will only shave away from the teeth as much as the thickness of the veneers, to ensure that they can fit perfectly on top of your teeth. After this the dentist will take a mold use that mold to make custom made matching weeks. This could take a few days. This is only done for porcelain veneers.
Applying of the veneers
The dentist will place the veneers for a short period of time temporarily to observe if it is fitting. This will be done repeatedly, placing the veneers and removing them to shave and trim them so they are a perfect fit to your teeth. Then the tooth that will hold the veneer will be prepared by the dentist. The dentist will clean and etch the tooth for a stronger bonding process with the veneer.
Next the dentist will apply a special cement on the veneer, then the veneer will be placed on the tooth. After the veneer is properly positioned on the tooth the doctor will use a special laser light that will cause the cement to harden in a small amount of time.
Finally the dentist will make sure that there is no excess cement and shaving it off. The dentist will make sure that the veneers are not obstructing your bite.

There are many types of veneers that have different components of which they are made from, their durability and many more. Here we will tell you what type of veneers are perfect for you.
1- Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are the most common and relied on method to get the perfect Hollywood smile. They are made from shells of ceramic. Offering strength the same as a normal tooth, and having a completely natural tooth look. They are very durable lasting more than 10 years with proper oral care. Porcelain veneers are also biocompatible, thus they don’t cause any allergic reactions to the surrounding tissue.Pros:Porcelain veneers are strong and resilient type of veneers, they are less prone to damage and last for a long time before needing a replacement, and they perfectly resemble and feel like a real tooth. They are also stain resistant and do not get discolored. Cons:Although porcelain veneers offer great quality, they require some work to be done on the teeth as in shaving the teeth off to allow them to be placed. They are also quite expensive, more so than composite veneers for example. And lastly they need to be custom made and cannot be done in one visit, needing a few days or weeks for the custom veneers to be made.
2- Composite Veneers
Composite veneers are constructed from a tooth colored resin, and other inorganic material. Despite using inorganic materials in its construction, they do not cause any irritation or allergy to the surrounding tissue. Pros:Composite veneer, unlike porcelain veneers don’t need to be custom made. They can be applied and or fixed in one visit. They are also much cheaper than porcelain veneers, and are easily fixed. Cons:Although they are more affordable porcelain veneers, they are not as durable or strong, having a life time of 5-7 years before needing to be replaced. They are also prone to discoloration.
3- EMAX porcelain veneers
eMax veneers are a different type of porcelain veneers. They are made from lithium disilicate glass ceramic. This special material is much thinner and lighter than the regular porcelain veneer, meaning it can be applied on the tooth comfortably without having to shave off from the tooth too much, unlike porcelain veneers. It is also much stronger and more durable than the porcelain veneers, lasting up to 20 years before needing to be changed. Another special quality is the translucent appearance of the veneers. Unlike the other types of veneers where the applied veneers look different than the other teeth, making your smile look off balanced or not matching. But the eMax’s translucent look is much closer to the color of natural teeth, perfectly blending your teeth together and allowing you to have a perfect and natural smile.

Cons:eMax veneers have very little cons. Costing only half as much as porcelain veneers, and needing much less work to be done on the teeth. The only possible cons are the veneers falling if you are not maintaining proper oral hygiene, or suffered some kind of injury.
Hollywood smile without a procedure in Turkey
You can achieve a bright Hollywood smile without needing to undergo a procedure, by bleaching your teeth. The dentist will apply an acid solution and an oxidizing agent to the front of the teeth, then your teeth will be exposed to a laser that will fasten the lightening process. This usually takes multiple sessions to reach the desired effect.
Teeth bleaching doesn’t last as long as veneers or dental implants. Lasting only a few months up or more.
What are some possible risks of Hollywood Smile?
-In the case of dental implants these are the risks:
-Infection:After any surgery there is always the risk of an infection. This infection will occur on the affected area. This will cause some swelling and causing the implant to feel a little loose. But don’t worry as an infection is rare if you’ve been confirming to the oral health care your doctor instructed you with.- Injury to surrounding structuresIn the operation some minor damage could occur to the surrounding structure such as the teeth or a blood vessel. Albeit this is rare as our doctors are very skilled, and have enough experience under their belt to not make such mistakes.
-In the case of veneers:
- The chance of veneers fallingThe veneers could fall of after the procedure. This is due to poor oral hygiene, and improper care of the teeth.- Sensitivity to hot and cold thingsDue to the veneers requiring you to shave off from the tooth. Your teeth will now be more sensitive towards hot and cold foods and drinks.
What is the difference between Luminaire lenses and Veneer?
It may be difficult to distinguish both types of coverings after installation by ordinary people, knowing that there is a big difference between the two. Whether as a method of preparation or installation or even price. We will explain the mechanism of obtaining each of the dressings as follows:
They are somewhat thick dental coverings when compared to luminaire, and their thickness may reach 2 mm, which makes them somewhat opaque, although they are of a bright white color, but they do not resemble the natural whiteness of teeth.
The method of installing veneers:
Since they are characterized by their thickness, the doctor will have to sculpt a small layer of tooth enamel, which in turn may lead to an increase in the sensitivity of the teeth, after numbing the gums, which prevents any pain during the procedures. After that, the doctor prepares the crowns to make sure that they fit the teeth completely, and he may sometimes resort to quilting a small part of the coating before starting to stick it to the teeth using his expertise and manual skills that are inevitably required so that there is no space between the teeth and the wears because this may lead to problems in the smell of understanding due to Food gathers in these spaces. Upon completion, the patient is ready to start his life with a beautiful and attractive smile.
- Luminaire coatings:
They are coatings characterized by transparency similar to the transparency of natural teeth, and this beautiful color is what distinguishes them primarily from dark veneers, as its thickness is not more than 0.5 mm, and this small thickness indicates that the doctor does not have to quilt or sculpt the enamel of the tooth, which avoids The patient will have dental sensitivity in the future, in addition to the fact that anesthesia will not be required during preparation.
How to install luminaire:
All doctors in Best Clinics in Turkey are highly skilled and experienced in lumen veneers, which is very much needed because the veneers are very thin and may break during installation due to lack of the required experience. Sometimes a very small part of the tooth is cut to ensure that the covering fits the tooth completely.
What stages will I go through to prepare for a Hollywood smile in Turkey?
- The stage of adjusting the color of the teeth in which the pigmentation that may exist on the patient’s teeth is treated and then installing lenses on the teeth, which are made of veneers or luminaire, which you will find an explanation of the differences between them in the same article.
- Compensating missing teeth. Gaps between teeth and the loss of one of them may be a cause that leads to decay, damage to the alignment of the teeth and problems with the placement. At Best Clinics (the best clinics in Istanbul) we treat the missing teeth either by placing a medical bridge or dental implants or by placing artificial teeth to fill the spaces according to the case.
- Improving the alignment of the teeth, as some cases suffer from a defect in the form of the alignment of the teeth and some of the teeth are advanced or skewed. In this case, we resort to solving this problem by completely reshaping the teeth and dressing them later or by repairing part of them and covering them with ceramic materials such as porcelain, zircon, Emax...
- Adjusting the length or width of the tooth, which is also done by using ceramic materials or lenses.
Correcting the shape of the gums, which is done before placing the lenses for people whose gums appear significantly during the smile, in order to obtain the desired Hollywood smile.
What are the stages needed to get the final Hollywood smile in Turkey?
- After examining the teeth by a specialized doctor, a mold is taken for the mouth and sent to the laboratory to prepare the crusts on the basis of the mold, as the molds contain the shape and size of the teeth.
After that, a small part of the teeth is scraped by the doctor to make a space for the installation and fixation of the veneers and to obtain the desired appearance, and the fixation is done using a specialized gel.
