How Do Celebrities Get White Teeth?

On the red carpet, while dazzling dresses often capture the spotlight, the radiant smiles of celebrities are equally mesmerizing. It’s difficult not to feel a twinge of envy for their perfect bodies and flawless teeth. However, it’s essential to remember that celebrities aren’t simply born with these attributes?they work diligently to maintain them, teeth included. Interestingly, the same dental treatments that give celebrities their brilliant smiles are also available to you. Here’s an insider look at how celebrities achieve their pearly whites and how you can too.


Lifestyle tips for whiter teeth

Although many celebrities turn to dental professionals to maintain their bright smiles, lifestyle factors play a significant role in the appearance and color of one’s teeth. If you’re not in a rush and are curious to see how white your teeth can get naturally, consider these lifestyle adjustments for enhancing your smile:

  • Regular Dental Cleanings: Visiting your dentist for regular cleanings is crucial for removing plaque and surface stains.
  • Quit Smoking: Smoking is one of the top contributors to tooth discoloration. Quitting can significantly improve the color of your teeth.
  • Use a Straw: When drinking beverages like coffee, tea, or red wine, using a straw can help minimize direct contact with your teeth, reducing stains.
  • Maintain Oral Hygiene: A consistent routine of brushing twice a day and flossing at least once daily is fundamental in keeping your teeth bright and healthy.
  • Whitening Toothpaste: These toothpastes can help remove surface stains and provide gradual whitening over time.
  • Eat Crunchy Vegetables and Fruits: Apples, carrots, and celery act as natural toothbrushes, helping to scrub away food particles and stains.
  • Drink Milk: Milk and other dairy products help strengthen teeth and contribute to enamel health, which can make teeth appear whiter.


Adopting these habits not only helps in achieving whiter teeth but also ensures they stay vibrant for longer, even if you choose professional treatments.


How do celebrities whiten their teeth

When it’s time to shoot a movie or go on a promotional talk-show tour, celebrities don’t have time to rely on lifestyle tips alone to get their teeth red-carpet ready. For a quicker approach to bright white teeth, dentists offer the following procedures: 


Professional teeth whitening

Essentially, professional teeth whitening is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of the enamel and dentin layers of the teeth.  Although there are drugstore teeth-whitening systems available, they are not as effective as professional teeth whitening. At Smile Designers in San Diego, we use the Zoom Teeth Whitening System, which involves the application of a light-activated whitening gel that can whiten your teeth up to 8 shades in a single visit. The results are visible immediately. 


Dental veneers

Of course, teeth whitening only whitens teeth. It does not address any other tooth imperfections. When a celebrity has chipped, cracked, misshapen, discolored, disproportionate, gapped, uneven, or slightly misaligned teeth, dental veneers are usually a good solution. Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the surface of the tooth to improve their shape, size, length, color, spacing, or overall uniformity. At Smile Designers, we offer both traditional dental veneers and Lumineers, which are even thinner. Both types of veneers have their distinct advantages. And, depending on the current condition of your teeth, both have the potential to help you achieve a red-carpet-ready smile.
