In recent years, many celebrities have gone through smile transformations that have enhanced and improved their looks. Others, have had cosmetic dental procedures that leave us scratching our heads:

Zac Efron reportedly closed the gap between his teeth orthodontically using removable clear braces. It appears he had teeth whitening too. In my opinion, the drastic improvement with such a minimally invasive procedure, puts him at the top of the list of great smile makeovers.          
Katherine Heigl subtly enhanced the look of her teeth with invisalign nyc. Thumbs-up for the non-invasive improvement to her teeth which in my opinion, gives her an “A+” in the smile makeover category.            
“I got a whole dental overhaul, compliments of Armageddon,” Ben Affleck reports. It appears a full set of veneers with some gum work are behind his new and improved.          
I love this “before” picture from what appears to be from the movie “The Outsiders.” Tom Cruise’s smile in the “before” was probably created specifically for the role or maybe it’s just a doctored photo to emphasize the smile change. Either way, Tom Cruise has been through orthodontics to straighten his once crooked teeth. Notice that the midline of his teeth do not match up with the middle of his face. Interesting what the eye does not pick up at first glance.        
Catherine Zeta Jones now sports a typical celebrity smile, Hollywood white porcelain veneers from ear to ear. It’s a big difference for someone who had a “normal” smile. I would suggest a more natural, less invasive approach to enhance the smile such as teeth whitening and removable clear braces instead of porcelain veneers.          
Michael Douglas must have gotten jealous of his wife’s perfect smile because his teeth now appear to be more symmetrical and even at the edges. I think the eveness at the edges goes with his age. Notice any similarities in shape and design compared to his wife’s? Looks like they’re visiting the same dentist!        
Celine Dion’s smile transformation is a great example of what a difference a nice smile can make. With what appears to be a “gum lift,” in combination with porcelain veneers, her smile depicts the natural looking improvement most dentists strive for.            
George Clooney is the man! He appears to be living the life and has the pefect smile to go along with the lifestlye many men dream about. He’s likely had veneers or caps to lengthen and replace the missing tooth structure that has worn off over the years. It also appears he had a “gum lift” to reduce the amount of gum tissue visible when he smiles. Veneers and gum surgery are as invasive as it is with cosmetic dental procedures but likely needed in this case. What isn’t necessary, in my opinion, is the blindingly white color that was selected for his smile makeover. A more natural shade selection would have earned this smile makeover an “A+.”  
Clearly not happy with the gap between his two front teeth, rapper 50 Cent appears to have had it closed with a set of porcelain veneers. While his smile has drastically improved and the final result is great, in my opinion, he may have been better served with a less invasive way of getting there. Removeable clear braces to close the gap, teeth whitening to remove the yellow staining, and replacement of the non-matching crown on his front tooth would probably have delivered a similar result non-invasively.    
In deep need of a drastic smile improvement, Nicholas Cage got one and now has the picture perfect Hollywood smile we have all come to recognize.            
Looks like “Iron” Mike Tyson traded in the gold teeth for a nice set of natural looking ones. If you ask your local commodities broker, a bad trade considering the price of gold these days, but I’m sure most dentists would agree it was about time. I especially like that he preserved the trademark space between his two front teeth.           gal_teeth_hilary-duffI would love to have been a fly on the wall to hear the conversation Hilary Duff had with her dentist before deciding to place porcelain veneers on her teeth. From what I understand, she did have some chipping and wear on her teeth but the initial result was way too aggressive a solution. In my opinion, the latest redo of her veneers is more natural looking.    
Katie Price’s first set of veneers were okay to start but her latest set are way too short, flat, and chiclet looking. To make matters worse, she has reported extreme sensitivity in her teeth after having them done. To improve the situation, I would recommend she dial-it-down a notch with the shade of the teeth and have them lengthened to more natural proportions.           What celebrity do you think has a picture-perfect smile?]]>
