The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry reports that cosmetic dentists rank Natalie Portman’s smile as the best in Hollywood, followed by James Franco’s and Nicole Kidman’s. Annette Bening, Colin Firth, and Christian Bale came next.
The dentists also reported on the most kissable mouths on the silver screen. For the females, Angelina Jolie came in first (lucky Brad), followed by Natalie Portman, and Halle Barry and Julia Roberts tied for third. How about the smoochable men? Jake Gyllenhaal took first place, but Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Denzel Washington weren’t far behind.
Smiles that Need Work
Ah, Tom Cruise. As a teenager in The Outsiders, his teeth needed some serious help. He has had significant smile makeovers since that time, however, and recently, it’s rumored that he underwent Invisalign orthodontic treatment. The cosmetic dentists of the AACD rang in, saying Cruise could still use cosmetic dental work.
Michael Strahan’s gap didn’t miss the list. You know Strahan. He’s an NFL commentator and ex-defensive end for the NY Giants. His gap (like Madonna’s) has become his signature. One NFL intro even has a cartoon of his head as part of a theme park, with a roller coaster coming through the big gap between his front teeth.
Furthermore, Hillary Clinton and Katie Couric were mentioned as needing cosmetic dentistry. Other female celebs who could benefit from a smile makeover were Caroline Kennedy, Condoleeza Rice, Jennifer Garner, and Jewel.
Cosmetic Dentistry is Common in Hollywood
Flawless smiles are a common commodity for people under the spotlight. In fact, cosmetic dentistry seems to be even more common than the usual image transforming procedures associated with the rich and famous. You might be surprised to know how many celebrities have had smile imperfections corrected by cosmetic dentistry.
Celebrities with Teeth Whitening
Under the harsh lights of the studio or the paparazzi, stained or discolored teeth do not qualify heart throbs. Which is perhaps why George Clooney, Ben Affleck, Nicholas Cage, and countless other stars have had noticeably whiter teeth transformations with teeth bleaching. This smile enhancement is not exclusive to celebrities; almost anyone is a candidate for teeth whitening, which can yield results up to nine shades lighter.
Stars with Porcelain Veneers
One of the quickest ways to change your smile to close-up worthy is with porcelain veneers. Miley Cyrus, Tom Cruise, and Catherine Zeta Jones are just a few stars with this smile transforming dental work. Porcelain veneers can add length to teeth that are too small, correct chips, straighten crooked teeth, and even cover permanent stains. For celebrities like Zac Efron, who could not pull off the Madonna gap, porcelain veneers can become instant orthodontics.
Smile Makeovers Are Not Just for the Rich and Famous
You do not have to write a pop song or do your own stunts to achieve a celebrity-level smile. Candidacy for most cosmetic dental procedures often depends on facial structure and oral health. Our Lake Forest cosmetic dentist takes into account your bite alignment, speaking patterns, oral health conditions, and other factors to determine which cosmetic treatment is right for you. At Lake Forest Dental Arts, we offer porcelain veneers and dental bonding. A less expensive alternative to veneer, bonding covers many of the same smile issues in even less time than the two office visits required for dental veneers and at a lower cost.
