Cristiano Ronaldo, Tom Cruise and Miley Cyrus have it: a harmonious, white smile with two perfectly symmetrical and straight dental arches. A uniform smile and bright white teeth are exactly what the famous Hollywood smile and the celebrity look are all about.
As early as 1930s Hollywood, thin plastic shells were glued to the stars’ teeth on the day of filming. The goal? A perfect, radiant smile for the camera.
The definition of Hollywood Smile varies. For some, it means above all to have a radiant white smile, while for others it means having a perfect smile with veneers. Today, the term Hollywood Smile is increasingly known for a very specific tooth shape where all teeth have the same length. This applies particularly to the canines, which are often pointed by nature. While creating a Hollywood smile with veneers, this shape is often rounded off to match the adjacent teeth.
Nowadays, you can get your flawless Hollywood smile thanks to state-of-the-art ceramic Veneers. Veneers were invented in 1928 by the Californian dentist Charles Pincus to make actors’ and actresses’ teeth look impeccable for filming. So it is hardly surprising that the origins of veneers lie in Hollywood. Marilyn Monroe or James Dean are said to have been among the first to have veneers applied permanently and not just temporarily for filming. That’s right, Marilyn Monroe and James Dean also (or already) had veneers.
What was made of plastic almost a century ago and only lasted for one day of filming has now become standard for movie stars. Since the 1950s, it became possible to apply veneers permanently. Made from high-quality ceramic, veneers are now virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth and offer a long-term solution to correct aesthetic imperfections and flaws.
Veneers can fix various dental imperfections such as yellow or discoloured front teeth and give a full smile makeover in a short period of time. Check out the incredible veneers-before-and-after pictures for yourself.

If veneers are not an option, for example in the case of missing teeth due to cavities or inflammation, a dental bridge can also be a good solution. Dental bridges are fixed dental restorations and are firmly anchored in the dentition. They restore aesthetics and function of the periodontium, making the patient's smile more harmonious.
