Flashing the ‘Hollywood smile’

The Gulf Today, 27 July 2010

MANY are envious of charming smiles that blossom on the movie and TV screens or on the cover of a glossy magazine.
People wonder how is it that Hollywood stars and models possess the perfect smile that a regular person may lack.
According to a dentistry expert, all the amazing smiles that steal your heart may not be gifted by birth. Talented cosmetic dentists design the stunning smiles just for the Hollywood stars.
The treatment for the celebrity smile has now reached Ajman, as the UAE’s first private teaching hospital, the Gulf Medical College (GMC) Hospital and Research Centre, has unveiled a super specialty dental centre at its premises on Sunday.
“Apart from the beauty elevation, the treatment is meant for a fully functional and comfortable set of teeth adorned in your mouth,” said Dr Sameer Kumar, associate director of GMC Super Specialty Dental Centre.
Smile for all
“Anybody can enjoy a dazzling Hollywood smile with the help of cosmetic dentists and porcelain veneers. It’s simply the perfect union of the teeth’s form, position, proportion, alignment and colour,” he added.
“‘Hollywood smiles’ are achieved by using a combination of all or some of the following: Tooth whitening, crowns, veneers, and orthodontics. To create a Hollywood smile, we apply a combination of dental treatments such as tooth whitening, crowns, veneers, and orthodontics,” elaborated Dr Sameer.
“The beautiful smiles are within the reach of modern dentistry,” remarked B Ahmed Hajee Mohiudeen, chairman of BA Group in India and patron of the GMC healthcare facilities.
While inaugurating the modern dental care facility, he added, “We introduce the advanced medical treatment to create beautiful smiles on the face of the residents in the Northern Emirates of the UAE.”
Sydney B Chikoti, CEO of Medical Aid Society of Malawi in Africa, was the chief guest at the centre’s inaugural ceremony.
Dental specialties
Thumbay Moideen, president of Thumbay Group and the GMC Hospital Group, said, “The state-of-the-art dental facility will provide all dental modalities as well as diverse dental specialities under one roof.”
“With the addition of this new dental centre, the GMC Hospital hopes that the patients will have even greater access to first-grade health care and dentistry right next door,” he added.
Akbar Moideen Thumbay, director of the GMC Hospital, said that the super speciality dental centre is supported by the College of Dentistry of Gulf Medical College University.
“Apart from the Hollywood smile treatment, other services focused at the centre include child dentistry, cosmetic facial surgery, Periodontal splint, Orthodontic Braces, oral surgery and general dental treatment and therapies,” he explained.
“The centre will focus on dental tourism, especially for patients from Africa, East Europe, the UK and the US,” said Akbar.
