Like cosmetic surgery, cosmetic dentistry is fast becoming the norm these days when it comes to fixing those problem areas. In the past any form of cosmetic work, whether it be in your mouth or in other areas of the body was left to the rich and famous, mainly because they were the only ones who could afford it but also because cosmetic work has carried with it a stigma of vanity and self-indulgence. That stigma has slowly declined though in recent years as more and more normal, everyday people look to cosmetic surgery in curing their body woes.
How do the celebs do it?
Cosmetic dentistry is popular in celebrity culture. Simon Cowell’s pop star manufacturing office is actually now fitted with its very own dentist chair to turn those simple smiles into dazzling works of art. Cheryl Cole was not born with that bright white perfectly straight smile and cosmetic dentistry can make any smile dazzle like those of the rich and famous.
As always, it is perhaps the celebrity culture that has brought cosmetic dentistry to the forefront of the everyday consumer’s mind and shameless celebrity endorsement of such treatment has most definitely lessened the stigma of faking a perfect smile.
Whilst eating at a fancy restaurant recently, ex-supermodel and reality TV star Janice Dickinson lost her veneers, and after slipping them in her napkin and continuing with her evening she couldn’t find them when she came to leave. Being the exuberant character she is, she involved all the staff in a hunt for the missing teeth and after they were found she thanked staff for their help, confessing: “These things are so expensive they could feed a small village.”
It is such open and unashamed celebrity endorsement of such treatment that makes cosmetic dentistry a possibility for us all. For those of us who walk around daily nervous to flash a smile at a friend, a work colleague and even the attractive guy making eyes at us across the room, something can be done and we should take advantage of what cosmetic dentistry can do for us.
Whether it be veneers, straightening, a simple teeth whitening treatment or something a little more technical that is needed to perfect your Hollywood smile, it can be done and you can have it. Don’t leave it to the rich and famous – get your perfect smile today!
