How Do Celebrities Get White Teeth?
On the red carpet, the dazzling dresses usually steal the show, but the celebrity smiles are pretty dazzling, too. It’s hard not to envy those perfect bodies and perfect teeth. But just remember, celebrities aren’t just born that way. They have to work to keep up their appearances just like we do. Yes, even their teeth. And believe it or not, when it comes to achieving bright white teeth, you have access to the same dental procedures that celebrities use. Read on for more information about how celebrities get white teeth, and how you can too.
Lifestyle tips for whiter teeth
While it’s likely that most celebrities rely on dental professionals to keep their teeth bright white, lifestyle plays a role in the appearance and color of our teeth as well. If you’re not in a hurry and you want to see how white you can get your teeth on your own, try these lifestyle tips for whiter teeth:
- Visit your dentist for regular dental cleanings
- Quit smoking
- Use a straw to drink stain-causing beverages
- Keep a healthy and consistent oral hygiene routine
- Use whitening toothpaste
- Eat apples, carrots, and celery to help clean your teeth
- Drink milk to help strengthen your tooth enamel
Even if you do opt for professional teeth whitening or another dental procedure to correct tooth discoloration, the above tips can help ensure that your teeth remain bright white for as long as possible.
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.
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.
