The Twinkle of a Hollywood Smile Isn't Just for Celebrities Anymore
Dramatic Effects of Veneers Capture Makeover Crazed Public
April, 2004 – According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, one out of every two Americans is dissatisfied with their smile. A smile – frequently cited as one of the first things people notice – can convey health, age and even self-confidence. The popularity of TV makeover shows is proving the sparkle of a Hollywood smile isn't just for celebrities anymore. More and more people are turning to cosmetic dentistry to get that mega-watt grin and take years off their appearance.
"Celebrities have always known what the general public has recently discovered, veneers are quick, painless, can dramatically improve your appearance and make you look years younger," states Daniel Materdomini, founder of Da Vinci Dental Studios, Inc in West Hills, California.
Materdomini has been in the cosmetic dental industry for over 25 years and introduced the first porcelain veneer in 1983. Da Vinci Veneers grace the smiles of countless celebrities and are regularly featured on Extreme Makeover and The Swan. Materdomini continues, "We have seen a tremendous surge in the interest in veneers in the last two years. Clients see the spectacular effects of a smile makeover and visit cosmetic dentists requesting smiles like Halle Berry's or X. What they soon realize is that even the most subtle change in your smile can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel about yourself."
Veneers – an ultra thin layer of ceramic material bonded to the front sections of your teeth – are known for creating striking effects with minimal discomfort. Completed in two weeks and three visits to the dentist, veneers can replace stained or discolored teeth, gaps and crooked teeth, and they resist staining over time. The cost of veneers range from $850 to $1,500. "The smile is one of the most positive emotions," explains dentist X who insists on Da Vinci Veneers for his clients because they are customized to closely resemble natural teeth, thus avoiding the dreaded “chicklet” effect. "Cosmetic dentistry is the ability to change the appearance of a tooth or a row of teeth, and more importantly, it's the ability to change the way someone smiles. Today, using smile design principles, we can make teeth look very real and very natural, and make people look 10, 20 years younger," he adds. "I love watching a patient look in the mirror and say, 'Oh God, that's me? I've waited for years to look like this.' It's a very rewarding profession."

From Dr. Steve Donia, Encino CA
A patient recently completed a smile makeover with da Vinci veneers and was very excited to share her experiences. At her first time out at a party with her circle of friends, several of the husbands and wives approached her and asked, “What have you done? You look great!” They asked several time commenting they didn’t know what was different, but that she just looked fantastic. This was the finest complement she could get and nothing brings me greatly pleasure as a Dentist than to help make such a positive change in someone’s life. No one commented on her teeth, but her new veneers blended into her appearance so naturally, that even her friends didn’t realize that it was her new smile that made the huge new impression.
