A tooth crown is the answer to your super-smile prayers.
If discolouration or damage is ruining your smile, there’s a simple and affordable answer. Here’s the full story.
We had reason, lately, to visit our local barber for a much-needed trim and a general sprucing up. While some people might see this as a chore, we happen to look forward to it hugely. It’s a little oasis of calm during our busy life, and we love the fact that the rest of the world can’t get at you while you're in the barber’s chair.
And while we might never read a trashy magazine all year round, a visit to the barber or hairdressers is not complete unless you flick through those magazines that tell you how the rich and famous live, including all those top Hollywood superstars who grace our screens each evening.
Inevitably, their hair, their clothes, their homes and their jewelry look absolutely amazing – as do their teeth. But here’s the rub – we reckon that most of those Hollywood smiles are not the handiwork of Mother Nature, but have involved several visits to top Hollywood dentists.
Why would they have work done?
There are a number of reason why superstars – or even the ordinary Joe Public – might want to have treatment such as a tooth crown that gives them the sort of dazzling smile that they crave.
For some, it may be a case that their teeth have become discoloured. There are a number of reasons why this may be the case. For older stars, time can take its toll on the colour of teeth, so a crown brings back the sheen and the lustre that the passing years have stolen.
For others, discolouration may have come about as a result of drinking too much tea or red wine – or perhaps smoking. This is yet another reason to give up smoking, if you're debating this issue with yourself.
Other stars, of course, may be in need of dental crowns as a result of accidental damage to their teeth. This could be anything from a clash of heads on the basketball court to an action stunt going wrong. But once a tooth has become damaged, a crown is a highly effective way of restoring the tooth to its full splendour.
Do crowns cost Hollywood levels of money?
You might be inclined to think that getting a Hollywood smile would cost you superstar money. The bottom line, however, is that if you're in the market for dental crowns Dublin is a far cheaper place to have your treatment.
And because not all our patients are earning George Clooney-style salaries, we make sure that we make our treatment costs as accessible as possible, including offering our 0% Dental Finance Plan which lets patients spread the cost over three months to nine months.
The bottom line is that there are very few forms of treatment out there that can do so much to transform your smile. So if you’re in the market for a true tinsel town smile, why not drop into us in MyDental and let us assess your current situation, and give you a firm cost for the process.
