You may have noticed something strange going on in celebrities’ mouths recently. It’s hard to miss. All the stars are sporting brilliantly white, perfectly shaped teeth, seemingly from nowhere. But how did they do it?
Good oral hygiene is obviously a factor, but you could clean your teeth ten times a day and still fall far short of having a Hollywood smile. Expensive cosmetic dentistry has been all the rage for a long time in Tinsel Town, and recently celebrities closer to home have been getting in on the action.
Cheryl Cole, for example, now has one of the best smiles in the industry. She claims that this is due to wearing invisible braces for many years and teeth whitening procedures, but the clear change in shape also suggests that she has had veneers fitted.
Veneers are a thin layer of dental porcelain bonded to the surface of a tooth to improve its shape. They can last for up to thirty years if they are of good quality and well looked after. Unfortunately they are rather expensive for the average buyer, often costing hundreds of pounds for one tooth.
If you are determined to achieve a perfect celebrity smile (and have the means to do so) it can be a great boost to your confidence. Cabinteeely Dental Care dentists can work wonders for patients in the Rathmichael area. You’ll be flashing your new smile at everyone! However, be careful you don’t go overboard, as many celebrities’ teeth are now too perfect and therefore look fake. It is important to find the right dentist who can advise you about your options.
Most of us will have to settle with teeth whitening kits and frantic tooth brushing until we can raise the hundreds of pounds required for high quality veneers. Maybe natural, healthy teeth aren’t too bad after all.
