In the past, most people had no choice but to live with the smile they had. If their teeth were crooked, they were likely going to remain crooked. If their teeth had lost their white sheen over time, they were destined to live with off-white teeth for the rest of their days. Today, however, things are different. In the present age, you can give yourself a remarkable Hollywood smile.
A shiny and white smile of straight teeth is within your reach. Periodontists and cosmetic dentists like Dr. Suzanne Caudry are more than capable of transforming your smile into something that truly stands out.

What Is the Hollywood Smile?
When cosmetic dentists and bloggers talk about the Hollywood Smile, they're referring to more than one simple procedure. The term refers to a variety of cosmetic and surgical procedures that set out to give your mouth, teeth, and gums that perfect red carpet look.
Are all Procedures the Same?
Is everyone's journey to an eye-catching smile the same? In a word: No.
Everyone's smile is different, and everyone's ideal smile is dependent on a variety of factors related to face shape, personal preference, and so much more. In the end, you and your periodontist work together to craft your smile. From the length of the crowns to the space between your teeth, the choice is yours.
Custom Smile Design
As we have said, everyone's smile is unique. This means that everyone starts their journey toward a stunning new smile from one different point or another. Some might need to address issues related to gum disease, missing teeth, or stained teeth before moving forward.
What Should You Expect During the Smile Design Process?
The first step to achieving that glamourous smile starts with a consultation. Your dentist will analyze all the imperfections and can even present you with a realistic representation of how your smile will look after it is corrected. Some of the most commonly discussed topics include the following:
Close the Gaps Between Teeth
Some people's teeth have wide gaps between them. While this is common and perfectly fine, some may wish to rid themselves of these gaps once and for all. We are more than able to help our patients address this issue.
There are many people who enter adulthood with misaligned or crooked teeth. With the help of braces, these crooked teeth can straighten themselves out over time.
Damaged or Missing Teeth
Missing or chipped teeth can impact the self-esteem of people from all walks of life. With the help of dental implants, we can fill in the blank spots of your smile.
Permanently Stained Teeth
Many facilities offer whitening procedures that can reverse the effects of stained teeth. In some cases, however, the stains are too severe to be completely removed. While this might be a problem for some, it is no problem for a cosmetic dentist.
Let's Talk About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are a silver-bullet solution for many patients and clinicians in our industry. They're durable, stain-resistant, and they can transform smiles in ways you never thought possible.
Veneers are custom-made shells designed to cover the front of your tooth. They're bonded together to give your visible teeth a unified and harmonious appearance. They can make teeth look straighter, brighter, and healthier. At the end of the day, that is all any patient could want.
Cosmetic Dentistry the Dr. Caudry Way
At the facilities of Dr. Caudry we prefer to take a more holistic approach to the smile design process. While porcelain veneers can make cosmetic improvements, we aim to address issues that go deeper than that. Rather than installing veneers that might only last one decade, we are capable of implementing solutions to your woes that can last a lifetime.
There are many cosmetic dental issues that stem from issues that run deeper than the surface. For some people, damaged teeth, receding gums, and other unsightly oral issues are related to infections and gum diseases. In cases such as those, gum disease must be treated before a person undergoes cosmetic dental treatment.
If your oral surgeon fails to address gingivitis or periodontitis before you receive your veneers, you will only have to reckon with the consequences or gum disease at a later date. Dr. Caudry and her staff tackle these issues head-on. We conduct procedures to restore the health of your gums-and that's not all. We also show you how to care for your teeth and gums at home properly.
Missing or damaged teeth impact your smile and your self-confidence. If your gum disease and other oral health issues have been addressed, you might be an eligible candidate for dental implants.
Unlike veneers, dental implants are a full-scale tooth replacement. Consisting of screw-like implants, abutments, and customized crowns, these natural-looking tooth replacements have the potential to last a lifetime.
We are more than capable of conducting all the preliminary work needed to ready your gums for strong and attractive dental implants. If excessive bone loss has left you with gums that are unable to support new teeth, we will suggest bone graft procedures. After recovering from your bone graft, you will have the gums you need to support your incredible new implants.
