Most celebrities weren’t born with perfect teeth, even if they have them now. They needed dental work to get where they are today. Many people are surprised to find out that the procedures that celebrities go through to achieve their perfect teeth are available to everyone. If you’re disappointed with your teeth and want a Hollywood-esque set of pearly whites, these tips can help.
What Do Hollywood Stars Do for Their Teeth?
To make your teeth as attractive as the Hollywood stars, start by covering the basics of good tooth care. Brush your teeth twice daily and see the dentist twice annually. While you’re there, talk to your dentist about the procedures below.
Teeth whitening services can make teeth substantially whiter when they’re performed by the dentist. Tooth bleaching at the dental office can lift away years of stains and discolorations on your teeth.
Straighten Your Teeth
Dentists straighten teeth using appliances like braces, retainers and similar tools. If your teeth are crooked, your dentist can help you decide which type of dental appliances will be best for straightening your teeth.
Consider Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers make your teeth whiter and straighter. Porcelain veneers cover up stains and fill in any gaps between your teeth that could make your smile seem unsightly.
Dental implants take the place of missing teeth. Modern implants are white and are matched to your teeth. This makes it impossible to tell which teeth are real and which ones are artificial. If you’re missing a tooth, dental implants can make your teeth whole again.
DIY Tips for Hollywood Perfect Teeth
Want to improve the look of your teeth? Start by getting a good toothbrush. Your dentist can recommend the brand and type that will work best for your teeth. If you have a hard time remembering to brush each side for the recommended length of time (thirty seconds), get an electric toothbrush that emits a sound to remind you when it’s time to switch.
LED light kits are available for sale online and at pharmacies. Read product reviews before selecting a model for you. LED lights work best when used in partnership with other types of tooth-whitening products, like strips or tooth whitening toothpaste. Talk to your dentist for recommendations.
Non-peroxide gels are another type of tooth whitening product. Follow all instructions carefully. Results can vary by gel type. Standard products produce results that last for about four months.
Activated charcoal kits are another type of DIY tooth-whitening product. Activated charcoal binds to toxins, which (in theory) could remove stains from your teeth. There are no studies that show activated charcoal is an effective antidote for stained teeth. However, there are many people who believe that activated charcoal is effective.
Tell your dentist about your DIY efforts, just in case your dentist has recommendations or words of caution. There are many products available but not all of them might be for you. Some teeth may become sensitive when exposed to certain types of products.
The Secret to Perfect Teeth
The true secret to achieving perfect teeth is a good dentist. Find a dentist you can trust and go for regular visits. Many dentists recommend that their patients visit them every six months. If you’re not sure how to find a dentist you can trust, read online reviews and get referrals from people you know. If you’re still not sure, have a conversation with your dentist before your first appointment. Ask questions such as:
- How long have you been in business?
- Do you specialize in a specific type of dentistry or patient population?
- What methods do you use to make patients comfortable during appointments?
Always use products that are approved by the American Dental Association. It’s always worth it to spend a little extra to buy a trusted brand, so avoid saving money by purchasing off-brand products.
