Photoshop revolutionized the way we see photos. Just like Photoshop, cosmetic dentistry has revolutionized the way we see smiles.
Whether the smiles you admire are on TV or in magazine, many of them are not all natural. Cosmetic dentistry has given superstars the opportunity to fix their smile flaws in just one visit. Of the many procedures available to make your smile beautiful, we have compiled a list of the most common procedures done to celebrities.
1) Veneers – Many celebs like Hilary Duff choose veneers to lengthen teeth or to close gaps. Veneers can also fix crooked teeth and make gums appear less prominent. They are priced per tooth and have a life of about 7 years.
2) Tooth Whitening – It is no surprise that many celebs opt to whiten their teeth. In Hollywood, smoking, coffee and red wine can be a daily indulgence. These are the top 3 contributors to tooth discoloration.
3) Implants – It is pretty common for some teeth to never grow in. Many kids lose their baby teeth and 1 or 2 adult teeth may not grow in their place. For a complete mouth of teeth, celebs choose implants to preserve or restore their beautiful smiles. Some stars have had teeth knocked out and replaced with implants.
4) Gum lifts – This is one of the more extreme cosmetic dental services. If a person is unhappy with the appearance of their gums when they smile, they can opt to “lift” them in order to make their smile more attractive. Unlike veneers, this procedure is permanent so few people choose this route.
The bottom line is that people want their smiles to be beautiful. You can contribute to your beautiful smile by avoiding excess sugar and acidic drinks, brushing and flossing daily and visiting your dentist regularly.
If you would like a celebrity smile, ask your dentist what your options are. Many times, there will be over the counter products you can use!
