While the majority of Hollywood’s hottest stars have seemingly perfect teeth with many such as Tom Cruise, Ben Affleck and Demi Moore owing their perfect smiles to cosmetic dentistry, a select few buck the trend and stick with their quirky smiles. With a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments available, from simple teeth whitening to highly advanced surgical treatments such as dental implants, which celebrities could benefit from cosmetic dentistry?
In This Post:
1. Woody Harrelson
Woody Harrelson who shot to fame in the sitcom Cheers has small, discolored, asymmetrical teeth with noticeable gaps in-between. Initially, gum contouring could be used to remove excessive gum tissue which covers his teeth, making his crowns appear longer and more in proportion with the rest of his face. The next step would be to whiten his teeth using laser tooth whitening; at a cosmetic dentistry clinic, laser light is used to activate the bleaching properties of a whitening gel. Once the teeth are whitened, the gaps could be closed by placing veneers on his front teeth which would be made to exactly match the new lighter color of his existing teeth.
2. Lindsay Lohan
Although Lindsay Lohan (shown above) first became famous for playing the dual role 2 squeaky clean teenage twin sisters in the 1998 remake of the film The Parent Trap, she is now also well known for her many brushes with the law and struggles with alcohol and drugs. Her apparently troubled lifestyle may well have contributed to her now seemingly uneven, decayed and stained teeth which first gained media attention in late 2011 when she was photographed at a red carpet event.
To correct her problems dentists would be likely to recommend that she abstains from any activities which are damaging to her teeth. She would have an in-depth dental assessment to determine any oral health issues which would need to be remedied before any cosmetic dental work take place. Following this dental crowns or veneers could be used to restore her teeth to appear similar to how they looked at the beginning of her acting career.
3. Kirsten Dunst
Aware winning actress Kristen Dunst gained widespread recognition at the age of 12 playing the vampiric role of Claudia in the 1994 film Interview with the Vampire. She went on to star in many well know films including Drop Dead Gorgeous, Marie Antoinette and the blockbuster Spider-man trilogy. She has become renowned not only for her acting skills but also partly for her trademark misaligned, which she calls her “snaggle fangs”. Despite also have an overbite, Dunst is reported as saying that she has no intention to have her teeth straightened, as she is comfortable with their appearance and that they give her character. However, if she ever changes her mind, the overbite could be easily corrected in around 6 month to 1 year with the use of Invisalign™ braces, which are barely noticeable when worn.
4. Steve Buscemi
Steve Buscemi who’s acting rolls include off-beat characters such as Mr Pink in Reservoir Dogs and Tony Blundetto in The Sopranos – has been reported as saying that if his teeth were fixed his acting career would be over. Some dentist is noted to have said that it appears Buscemi may well have gum disease which could be treated with antibiotics, professional deep cleaning or perhaps even surgery, depending upon the severity of the condition.
5. Cynthia Nixon
Cynthia Nixon is well known for playing the character of Miranda Hobbes from 1998 until 2004 in Sex and the City as wall as numerous other TV and big screen rolls. Despite this the teeth on either side of her front teeth protrude further than they should, causing a type of overbite which could be adjusted with orthodontic braces. She also has a gummy smile which could be corrected with a gum lift.
