The tabloid press delights in commenting on the latest cosmetic surgery that a celebrity has undergone but the focus is usually on tummy tucks, breast reduction/augmentation or face lifts. It’s only recently that they’ve cottoned on to the fact that improving your smile can be one of the most effective ways of rolling back the years.
Amongst those who’ve opted for benefits of cosmetic dental work are Martine McCutcheon, Kirsty Young and designer Amanda Wakeley. Of course, the search for the perfect smile has long been established in the US. Tom Cruise is probably one of the most famous celebrities to undergo cosmetic dental work that may have been instrumental in kick starting his stellar career.
The secret is in the preparation
We here at 76 Harley Street offer a full range of cosmetic (or aesthetic as it’s otherwise known) dental treatments. Primarily they’re designed to enhance your appearance and aren’t generally required for oral health reasons, although occasionally it’s possible to combine both requirements. The key thing with any aesthetic work is making sure that it’s as low risk as possible and that plenty of time is spent on the preparation to ensure that the results are as expected.
Not all smile treatments take years
Although it’s worth putting in the effort in advance it doesn’t necessarily mean that aesthetic work takes a long time. Clearly with orthodontic tooth straightening patience and repeated visits are required to get the optimal results and the patient should be thinking in terms of years. With other treatments, such as veneers, the whole process could take less than a month with 2 to 3 appointments, although the results can last up to 20 years. Tooth lightening can be even quicker and carried out at home after some guidance from your dentist.
Expect to see more accounts of British celebrities undergoing dental work to improve their smile. It really can be the simplest but most effective way of enhancing those celebrity looks and it doesn’t require surgery or a stay in hospital.
