When it comes to a great smile, you can just flip through celebrity magazines to see gorgeous smiles that light up a room. But how do they do it? Just like they have perfect bodies and noses with the help of personal trainers, nutritionists, and plastic surgery, celebrities look to cosmetic dentists for help with their smile. Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just a luxury for celebrities, many of our Dayton Valley patients also opt for it. Discover how to achieve a celebrity worthy smile at Dayton Valley Dental Care by learning about the cosmetic dentistry procedures loved by celebrities.
Porcelain Veneers – The Key to a Celebrity Smile
One of the top procedures celebrities opt for is porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that are bonded over the front of your teeth. They can reshape your smile, give you permanently white teeth, hide chips, gaps, and minor misalignments. Porcelain veneers combine the work of different procedures like orthodontics, teeth whitening and bonding into one long-lasting treatment! Celebrities opt for this procedure over others to have an instant smile makeover. You only need to visit us for two appointments to have a completely new smile. First, we will prepare your teeth for the veneers by shaving away a small amount of enamel. Then, we will take impressions of your teeth so that your veneers can be made in the lab. Once they return, we bond them to your teeth and you’re ready to go!
One example of a celebrity who used this treatment is Nicolas Cage. To get into character for one of his films Birdy in 1984, Cage actually had two teeth pulled. He later opted for a full mouth of veneers that helped him look younger and even land better roles. Another veneer wearer is Hilary Duff. Hilary Duff chipped her front teeth on a microphone while performing and later opted for veneers to hide the flaw and leave her with permanently white and straight teeth. Ben Affleck is another porcelain veneer wearer. Affleck had noticeable buck teeth until he recently received a full set of veneers before his latest Batman vs. Superman role. Lastly, George Clooney received porcelain veneers after grinding his teeth down to a noticeably short length.
Teeth Whitening – Stay White for the Camera
When it comes to the shade of your teeth, nothing screams celebrity like a perfectly white smile. It was just 15 years ago where celebrities graced the covers of magazines with yellowed and stained teeth. More recently, white teeth have been associated with beauty and health. White teeth are easier to achieve than you might think. At Dayton Valley Dental Care, we offer professional teeth whitening so patients can achieve celebrity colored whitening for their own teeth.
We use a professional whitening system that requires you to make two visits to our office. During the first visit, we will take impressions of your teeth to make the molds that will be used as your whitening trays. During the second visit, we will give you the trays and whitening product to take home to wear while you sleep or twice a day for 30 minutes. Over the course of a few weeks, your teeth will whiten several shades! Your whitening treatment will last you up to a year before you need to receive any touchups.
Many celebrities opt for teeth whitening treatments if they do not have veneers. Veneers don’t stain so those with them won’t ever have to visit us for a whitening treatment. One celebrity who opts for whitening treatments regularly is Zac Efron. Once he fixed his uneven teeth, he’s kept them a glamorous white to show off ever since. Morgan Freeman is another celebrity who’s been in the spotlight for years. With age, it’s normal for teeth to yellow which is why he now whitens them to stay young.
Dental Bonding – No Flaw Faces the Camera
Living with minor cracks or chips in your teeth can be a hassle but luckily there is dental bonding to help you hide these flaws. Dental bonding is not only a cost-effective procedure, but it does a great job of hiding minor tooth flaws for a few years. Our dentist in Dayton Valley uses dental bonding to hide chips, cracks, gaps and minor misalignments in teeth. The procedure consists of using a composite material to reshape your teeth. Your dentist shapes it and then cures it with a light so it is strong and stays on your tooth. It should be replaced every few years before it falls off.
One notable celebrity who opts for dental bonding is Jim Carrey. Jim Carrey chipped one of his front teeth and actually walks around between bonding sessions to amuse fans. He even removed the bonding for his role in the Dumb and Dumber sequel. What a difference dental bonding can make!
Orthodontics – The Secret to Perfectly Straight Teeth
The last cosmetic dentistry procedure loved by celebrities is orthodontics. With so many different orthodontic options out there, you can always find one that works for you. At Dayton Valley Dental Care, we offer metal braces as our orthodontic treatment. This treatment involves using bonded brackets to your teeth and wires to pull your teeth into their correct position. Although it’s rare to see a celebrity with metal braces, it does happen.
Miley Cyrus is actually one celebrity who chose to wear metal braces on the back of her teeth. After her teeth were straightened and whitened, they looked ten times better. Gwen Stefani sported metal braces back in the ‘90s when her band first started making money.
