A Hollywood smile is created using veneers that are either made in a lab or handcrafted by a dentist to custom design a smile.  At Cocoona Dubai we do both.  The handcrafted makeover is expensive and exclusive and at Cocoona we strive in being among the very few in the world who are able to do it, extremely well and with extreme finesse. It’s Art, not everyone’s cup of tea.

A Hollywood Smile gives you a full smile makeover. Veneers have played an important role in giving a beautiful and perfect smile to millions of people worldwide and thousands of celebrities

What is Hollywood Smile or Smile Makeover?

Hollywood smile is an aesthetic procedure in which we carry out a total smile makeover, which lifts a person’s confidence, beauty and charisma. It is done using veneers, which are thin layers of porcelain or composite that cover the teeth. Veneers are durable, strong and extremely easy to maintain, just like one maintains their own teeth.

The key purpose is to enhance the appearance of one’s teeth and deliver a beautiful smile.  In most cases the front top 10 and bottom 10 teeth are treated and in cases where the patients have a much broader smile, we do treat the other teeth that are visible when the patient smiles.

Deciding about getting a Hollywood Smile

A Hollywood Smile is a very common procedure in Dubai and internationally, it nevertheless is a medical procedure. Therefore, it is imperative that you are fully ready, both physically and mentally for the treatment. At Cocoona, we ask that you self-evaluate on the following parameters:

  • Why do you think you need a Hollywood smile? What are the problems you see?
  • Are considering a Hollywood smile makeover in order to just have whiter teeth? Have you tried other dental treatments which can whiten your teeth such as home teeth whitening, office teeth whitening (laser teeth whitening, the basic -regular scaling and polishing and still are unable to get good white teeth)
  • Are you considering a Hollywood smile in order to straighten your teeth? If so, have you consulted an orthodontist already and explored braces as an option?
  • Are your expectations realistic? Will your orthodontist be able to deliver the smile makeover you want? Is that actually possible?

Who is a good candidate for Hollywood smile?

A Hollywood Smile makeover is suitable for anybody with:

  1. Malformed Teeth
  2. Enamel Hypoplasia, which means the amount of enamel is not enough
  3. Enamel Hypo calcification, it is a condition in which enamel is partially mineralized
  4. Dental Fluorosis, it is teeth discoloration which is caused by excessive fluoride intake
  5. Staining of teeth due to Antibiotics or other medicines
  6. Tooth Erosion, in many cases the enamel surface of teeth wear off by acids.

What are the types of Veneers?

There are two types of Veneer:

  • Composite Veneers: These Veneers are made by aesthetic composite materials by the dentist himself and he/she shapes them as needed. The advantage is these can be done in a single visit and if they get chipped can be easily repaired. At Cocoona Dubai we love composite veneers, as we are able to give much better results.
  • Porcelain or Ceramic Veneers: These are made in the dental laboratory and often take two to three visits to the clinic for the treatment to finish. Veneers are cemented on your teeth. If they are chipped, they cannot be repaired, they have to get replaced by a new one.

Now the question most patients have, is which type of veneer is better? The best way is to consult the dentist.

Is Hollywood smile permanent?

Veneers can last for 5-15 years or a couple of decades and for some patients it may not need to get replaced at all. What is the difference? The life of veneers or any treatment is how the post-treatment care is. If you take good care of your veneers, oral hygiene, maintain a proper home care regime and visit your dental doctor regularly, in all likelihood you will exceed the average age expectancy of a Veneer/Smile makeover.

How much does Hollywood smile cost?

The cost of one tooth can range from AED 1200 – AED 5000.  There are even cheaper options available, but at Cocoona, we don’t compromise on quality and patient safety and only use absolutely safe products.

Hollywood smile recovery period and downtime:

It varies between one day to 2 weeks. Why is that big a difference? It is all about type of veneers which is going to be done for you. Composite veneers can be done in the first visit with your dentist and you are good to go from Day 1. However, Porcelain veneers would take one to two weeks from your first appointment, as the veneers are sent to a lab to make.  (During this period your teeth are covered with temporary veneers)

You can ask any question which you need to ask from your dentist and all will be answered. Here are some FAQs which are already answered:

How is the maintenance and after-care?

It will be regular dental checkups every six months with your dentist, – which one should do with or without veneers. Plus, homecare which is combination of regular flossing, brushing and using mouthwash. Which is also something you should do, with or without a smile makeover.

Is Hollywood smile covered with health insurance?
Hollywood smile is an aesthetic procedure; hence it is not covered by health insurance.

What can I expect after Hollywood smile?

After veneers are cemented on your teeth you can eat and drink normally on the same day. The dentist will schedule a follow up appointment for you in order to ensure the gum status and the bite.

It is important to do regular dental checkups every six months with your dentist.

    I want to thank you for the great effort and expertise that you put in the hair transplant procedure which you did on me. You have fixed a big cut from a previous, very bad hair transplant in Jordan. It kept me very nervous and uncomfortable for very long time. Now, after conducting this surgery by you, I feel very very happy because the cut is almost gone. I like your personality and professionalism. I am really glad that I made a decision to come to Dubai and conduct the surgery at Cocoona Clinic Thank you very much.
