Welsh leading lady Catherine Zeta Jones is one of Tinseltown’s brightest stars. Her talent has helped her net a sizeable haul of Hollywood’s top honours, including an Academy Award and a BAFTA for her work in ‘Chicago’.
As the face of beauty company Elizabeth Arden, Zeta-Jones is also renowned for her glamorous looks – but did you know that she’s had the help of a cosmetic dentist to achieve that winning smile?
If you’ve ever envied her sparkling white, straight and even teeth, it might interest you to know that you too can achieve this flawless smile with the help of treatments such as Invisalign or veneers.
There are two types of veneers to choose from, and both can have a visible effect on the appearance of your teeth.
How do dental veneers work, and what are they made from?
Dental veneers are created from an ultra-thin material and bonded to the front of your teeth, providing a more uniform, straight and improved appearance. This solution can be particularly ideal for resolving issues with discoloured, uneven or crowded teeth as it provides an immediate change.
Porcelain veneers mimic the natural appearance of your teeth as they are made from a material that’s partially translucent. These have to be designed specially in a dental laboratory before they can be applied to your teeth, but the results are often stronger and more durable.
On the other hand, composite veneers are more affordable and can be created and applied directly onto the teeth in a single visit. They can be used to correct either the whole smile or just one or a few teeth.
Catherine Zeta-Jones’ smile is a great example of the effects of dental veneers. With the help of this popular cosmetic dentistry treatment, you too can achieve a smile that’s worthy of the lights and buzz of Hollywood.
