Celebrity Teeth: Who's Had Some Dental Work Done?

Celebrities are expected to look perfect in every way, and this pressure extends to their teeth. Today, veneers are so common that audiences do not even notice when a television show or film is full of actors whose teeth are fake.

Before veneers San Jose can be applied, the real teeth have to be filed down to tiny, thin planks that are incredibly weak and sensitive. This process cannot be reversed. The remaining bits of teeth are then covered with porcelain or a composite material. Veneers might be more superficially appealing than real teeth, but they are weaker and need to be replaced occasionally. It is not recommended that people circumvent proper orthodontic procedures in favor of a quick cosmetic fix. The teeth are still crooked below the gums.

Tom Cruise
Tom Cruise was one of the first actors to become known for having artificial teeth. His markedly crooked natural teeth can be seen in his early films, like The Outsiders and Born on the Fourth of July. His top left tooth used to stick out much further than the right one. Already a handsome man, his new teeth helped to make him one of the most successful movie stars of all time.

Jennifer Garner
Jennifer Garner got veneers and had her lips plumped at around the same time. She looked much more mature and womanly after the procedures were performed. Her gums used to be prominent when she smiled, but now she has a more attractive, toothy smile.

Paget Brewster
Paget Brewster has the best veneers in Hollywood. In fact, many people did not realize that Paget had veneers until she posted pictures of herself in a dentist's chair on her Twitter account. She was an ideal candidate for veneers because her natural teeth were already quite large and straight. She just had them smoothed and squared.

Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff's first set of veneers was so large and obvious that she was publicly mocked in tabloids and on talk shows. She eventually had those veneers replaced with a much smaller set; as previously mentioned, it was impossible for her to undo her mistake and get her original teeth back.

Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus became famous at a young age and never had time to wear braces. Instead, her dentist created the illusion of straighter teeth with veneers, though her teeth still look a bit uneven. This actually works for her, since she still has a natural-looking smile that helps her young fans relate to her.

Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato closed the sizable gap between her front teeth with veneers. Demi's case is interesting because she could not have fixed her smile any other way. She had the gap because her teeth were too small to reach each other.

Veneers can transform a sweet grin into an A-list smile. When applied judiciously, veneers can make a major difference in an individual's appearance without looking unnatural.
