It’s award season and we’ve seen the glitz and glamor of Hollywood on the red carpets! Over the years, we’ve seen the styles of dresses change … from over the top creations to more subdued looks. They’re all gorgeous, just like their hair styles … changing from beautiful up-dos to long, wavy locks. Either way, they’re gorgeous!
But the one thing that really catches our eye is their SMILES! Yes, we love the makeup and shoes, but those gleaming white, perfect Hollywood smiles … WOW!!
Do you think they all had perfect smiles earlier in their careers? Nope. Check out this article from Self Magazine, The Celebrity Secret to a Perfect Smile or this one from Seventeen, 10 Celebrity Tooth Transformations that will Make You Smile.
Celebrities from Miley Cyrus to Tom Cruise have had chipped, gapped, stained, crooked and misshapen teeth in the past, but not in current photos. If you look back at images over the years of your favorite actor or actress, you can tell they’ve had cosmetic dentistry procedures completed to enhance their smile. It’s not magic and it’s not only for the Stars … you can have the smile of your dreams too and GPS Dental can help!

We’ve listed below a few of the natural-looking cosmetic dentistry procedures that Dr. Gary Skrobanek and his expert team at GPS Dental in San Antonio, TX offer:
Cosmetic Bonding is a process where Dr. Skrobanek attaches or “bonds” materials directly to your tooth in order to change the color and shape and used most often to repair chipped teeth. The natural tooth enamel is then fused together with bonding materials such as porcelain and resins to create a strong structure that still feels like your original tooth.
Enamel Shaping (Contouring)
One of the few instant cosmetic dentistry treatments is tooth reshaping, or contouring. This procedure can correct chipped or cracked teeth, crooked teeth, even overlapping teeth during one appointment. Under certain circumstances, dental contouring can be a substitute for braces and is used to slightly alter the shape, length or position of your teeth.
Brushing and flossing are everyday ways to keep your teeth bright, white and healthy. If you still feel like your smile is lacking some sparkle or is more yellow than it used to be, you’re not alone. We offer several in-office teeth whitening options, just ask Dr. Skrobanek which option is best for you. (Read more, Brighten Your Smile with Whitening Trays)
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They are an option for correcting stained, chipped, decayed or crooked teeth. A small amount of your existing tooth structure is removed to accommodate for the very thin, yet strong porcelain veneer.

Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to an injury, periodontal disease, or some other reason. Dental implants are connected to the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth. Expert dentists, like Dr. Skrobanek, who specialize in implants have the training, experience, special knowledge, and technology to help you have teeth that look and feel just like your own after your implant is finished.
