Have you always envied the beautiful smiles of celebrities and wondered how they got their perfect teeth? Read on to discover how you too can set your instagram-account alight with a radiant smile worthy of its own social media account.
Do you really think celebrities get whiter teeth by brushing them with a whitening toothpaste? The busy lives of famous folk don’t allow them to wait in vain for their teeth to become whitened just from twice daily brushing. If you are unhappy with the colour of your teeth, you can get a celebrity smile quite quickly via a professional home-whitening kit, or by visiting your local orthodontist.
Thanks to modern dental treatments, it’s amazing how simple it really is to obtain straight teeth should your teeth be not as perfect as you may want them to be. If you compare the crooked smile of Tom Cruise earlier in his career with his current set of gnashers, you will see just how much of an impact teeth straightening can have on a person’s appearance. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics are easier to access than perhaps they once were, and non-celebrities can opt for clear braces such as Invisalign to straighten their crooked teeth. Sometimes referred to as invisible braces, this type of cosmetic dentistry is mess-free and boasts speedy results.
These thin layers of porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material are attached to the front of teeth to give them a smoother, whiter, more uniform appearance. Veneers can help those who have damaged teeth, extremely discoloured teeth or teeth that are not quite in the right place. This procedure is very popular as it can improve the appearance of teeth in several different ways and is also a relatively quick procedure.
If you have what you consider to be near perfect teeth, but there are one or two damaged or decayed areas you would like to address, you may wish to consider composite bonding. Any decay will be removed, and a material will be bonded to the tooth and sculpted until it looks as natural as possible, giving your tooth a whole new lease of life! This is one of the less expensive procedures and could give you the celebrity look without you needing to have the celebrity pay-packet.
In some circumstances, dental patients with several teeth missing may choose to have dental implants to support prosthetic teeth. Dental implants can also help should you have just one prominent tooth missing. The great thing about implants is that once the support is placed into your gums, the surrounding tissue will grow around it, keeping it in place indefinitely. Patients will need to ensure they follow a rigorous dental hygiene regime to prevent plaque and food debris building up in these areas.
If the fear of painful procedures is holding you back from considering any of these treatments, it is worth noting that reputable dental professionals will always use the appropriate anaesthetics and follow up pain relief treatments when necessary.
