How Can I Get A Celebrity Smile?

As a dental practitioner, I see patients regularly seeking the white and fresh smile they see on television and social media. Unfortunately, our teeth can become dull or yellow over time, making it difficult to achieve a pure white smile without some intervention.

What treatments can help you achieve a celebrity smile? Keep reading as we go through the top treatments celebrities receive to improve their smile and get that perfect grin.

Why Is Your Smile So Important?

Before we dive in and discuss the best cosmetic dental treatments to give you a celebrity smile, let’s first cover why these procedures are worth the trouble.

We use our mouths to speak, communicate emotion, and eat. If you are unhappy with your teeth, you will try to hide them in conversation, cover your mouth, and avoid smiling. This can be detrimental to your overall confidence.

You will be eager to show off your new teeth by having cosmetic dental procedures performed and can converse and communicate without inhibition.

One of the benefits of a beautiful smile is that you will look great on screen – which is why many celebrities opt for these dental procedures. Yellow, stained, crooked teeth can appear more noticeable on camera, and pearly white teeth can make you look fresher, cleaner, and well-kempt.

Top Procedures For A Celebrity Grin

Here is our list of the top procedures to help you get that perfect celebrity grin.

Teeth Whitening

Most people can benefit from a teeth whitening procedure. It’s only natural that your teeth will become stained as you age – coffee, tea, red wine, and soda can stain the teeth, but we can’t seem to live without them! To resolve staining on the teeth, you can have a whitening procedure performed.

To whiten your teeth, you must visit the dentist a few times. On your first visit, your dentist will create an impression of your teeth for a retainer or mouthguard. Then, once you have your mouthguard, your dentist will give you some teeth whitening gel and instruct you on how to use it. Over the next few weeks, you will whiten your teeth at home by placing the gel into the mouthguard and then placing the mouthguard into your mouth. You then leave the treatment on for the specified period and repeat the process over a few weeks.

Alternatively, you might opt for laser whitening. Laser whitening involves your dentist applying a gel to your teeth and shining a laser or light onto the gel to activate and whiten the teeth. This process takes an hour or two, much faster than the at-home method.

It’s important to remember that you can only lighten your teeth several shades using teeth whitening, so if your teeth are already quite stained, you may not be able to achieve the pearly white smile of your dreams.

Veneers

When teeth whitening is ineffective due to the extremity of the discolouration, you can opt for veneers instead. Veneers are a ceramic or porcelain artificial tooth surface that your dentist can apply to your teeth to improve the appearance of your smile. During the procedure, your dentist will file down your teeth to make room for the veneers. Then, the veneers will be applied to your teeth and sealed with UV light. Veneers are an excellent option for damaged, chipped, and discoloured teeth.

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding improves the shape of the teeth. If your tooth’s surface is ridged or has chips or indents at the bottom, you can have composite bonding to resolve the issue. Additionally, composite bonding can even out the shape of your teeth. So, if you have a few teeth that are too small, you can even them out using composite bonding. During the procedure, an acrylic gel is applied to the teeth to change the shape, which your dentist will harden using UV light, bonding the gel to the teeth.

Invisalign

If you have crooked and misaligned teeth, you can improve their structure with Invisalign. Invisalign is a treatment that involves wearing several sets of aligners to change the structure of your teeth – like braces gradually. Invisalign is often preferred over braces because the aligners are made of clear plastic and are thus invisible. So, you can get your celebrity smile for over a year without wearing braces.

Cosmetic Contouring

Cosmetic contouring is designed to change the shape of the teeth via subtracting from the tooth. A polishing tool is applied to the enamel of the teeth, which will then even out any unwanted texture or imperfections on the teeth. This procedure can change a patient’s bite, so you should speak to your Bentleigh East dentist about whether you are viable for cosmetic contouring.

Gum Reshaping

Getting that perfect celebrity smile isn’t just about the shape of your teeth – it includes the condition of your gums, too! Gum reshaping is a popular procedure for those who have a gummy smile. It can help you to recede the gums so that more of the tooth is showing when you smile. A botox treatment can accompany gum reshaping called a ‘lip lift’ for the best results. The ‘lip lift’ ensures that your lip is still visible when you smile, revealing less of the tooth and gum. It makes your lips look fuller and reduces the appearance of the gums. Many dental practitioners are adopting cosmetic and aesthetic procedures like this to tackle smile issues from all angles.

That celebrity smile doesn’t happen by magic! You can achieve your desired smile by consulting with your dentist and deciding which treatments are best for you.
