Veneers are synonymous with celebrity smiles. Hollywood played a big role in their origin story, with the first veneers created in 1928 by Charles Pincus, in response to a movie director who wanted to perfect one of his actor’s teeth. This pretty much set the bar in cosmetic dentistry – and, although almost a century has passed, Pincus paved the way for the dentists like ours here at smilogy.
Unlike the veneers back then, which could be popped off at the end of the day, veneers are higher quality now, so they last a little longer. In fact, they last many years! There are now countless reasons why ordinary people invest in them, and they’re not (all) about wanting to be famous!
Let’s explore how the gap is closing between the Hollywood elite and our typical customers.
In today’s society, a straight, white and bright smile can go a long way. When we’re accustomed to seeing such on our screens both big and small, it’s no wonder we want to emulate this look, especially if we’ve spent years hiding in embarrassment.
Feeling like all our smile worries are “fixed” can give us the boost in self-esteem we need. We might put ourselves up for job interviews, dates or simply carry ourselves in a new way.
While most people can benefit from professional teeth whitening, some teeth stains are super stubborn.
If you’ve tried just about everything to rid yourself of smile discolouration, veneers could be your one-way tickets to a fresh set of pearls.
chipped or broken teeth
Once your teeth are broken, it can be pretty hard to fix them… unless you get veneers. No matter how you break, chip, crack or wear down your smile, veneers can be a welcome solution.
At your consultation with smilogy, we can let you know whether this will be the right option for you!
While we love clear aligners here at smilogy, veneers can be an alternative (or even an additional treatment for those wanting to go the extra mile).
We can discuss with you whether your issues will best be solved with veneers, aligners or both when you want to straighten your smile. Our approach is entirely custom, so we’ll find the right solution for YOU.
gaps in your smile
Some of the biggest names in the arts and music have gaps in their smile, just look at Madonna! However, we are all unique and what works for one won’t work for everyone.
If you’re bored of hiding your smile and appearing more miserable than you actually are, veneers could be the right option to help you enhance both appearance and confidence.
for a big day
Some days will stay forever in our hearts, and longer in our photographs! When you have a big, once-in-a-lifetime event coming up, it can be natural to want the best version possible when it comes to our smiles.
It’s common for people to get veneers when their wedding is coming up, for example, or for their graduation. There are so many different reasons they may want them, but that special day might be the icing on the cake.
