You’d be surprised to know who has veneers in Hollywood.
Smiling is an important part of how we express our emotions, and it often affects how others view us, helping us to appear more trustworthy or friendly. Smiling doesn’t come easily to everyone, however, and people who are self-conscious about their smiles might hide them with their hands or avoid smiling in public altogether. If this sounds familiar, porcelain veneers might be the perfect way for you to regain your confidence.
Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are adhered to the surface of your natural teeth. They’re a versatile treatment that can resolve a wide range of issues, including gaps in your smile and teeth that are stained, crooked, worn down, broken, or cracked. The porcelain material mimics the gloss of natural teeth perfectly, and each veneer is custom-made for you, so you can change just a few aspects of your smile or completely transform it.
When you choose to place porcelain veneers on your teeth, Dr. Alhadef will work with you to pick their size, shape, and shade, ensuring that your finished smile will be proportionate and natural-looking.
Despite all the work that goes into making each individual’s veneers look natural, many patients still find themselves anxious that their new veneers won’t look real. If you’re on the fence about choosing veneers or fighting off some last-minute jitters before you receive them, we understand, and we’d like to offer a little help.
For years, every time you have watched a movie or flipped through a celebrity magazine, you have probably seen multiple sets of veneers without even realizing it. Hollywood is famous for being full of gorgeous people with captivating smiles. Although they look completely natural, many celebrities have received veneers to correct issues with their teeth. Here are a few major celebrities you never would have guessed have veneers.
1. Ben Affleck
When Ben Affleck was younger, he went through multiple cosmetic dentistry treatments to resolve problems with his smile, especially his buck teeth. After struggling with the appearance of his smile, he finally decided to get veneers to achieve the magnetic smile he’s known for today.
2. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus struggled with crooked teeth from an early age. When she launched herself into her adult career, Miley evidently decided it was time for a change; she turned to veneers to give her teeth a straighter, more even appearance. Some aspects of her natural smile, such as her prominent canines, were toned down but still incorporated into her porcelain veneers, allowing her new smile to look even more natural.
3. Tom Cruise
Okay, you’re right, we did mention Tom in our last post about veneer-wearing celebrities, but here’s a little more about him. When Tom Cruise began his career, he sported a smile that was far from the dazzling one we know today; he suffered from an overbite, and his teeth were stained and crooked. Tom was open and confident about his first steps to improve his smile, which involved getting braces and tooth whitening treatments. The difference was impressive, but after several years, Tom committed to veneers to remedy some of his smile’s lingering imperfections.
4. George Clooney
George Clooney is known as one of the most enduringly handsome men in Hollywood, but even he has porcelain veneers. George still won the genetic lottery, though; his teeth were originally fine, but years of grinding his teeth because of stress left them considerably worn down. His smile was visibly different, as his teeth looked strangely short, but the consequences were more than simply cosmetic; his habit of teeth grinding was doing real, physical damage to his smile.
As a result, George decided to get veneers. They fixed the appearance of his smile by returning his teeth to their original size and shade, but even more than that, they also help protect his teeth from further damage.
5. Jordyn Woods
Jordyn Woods used to be well-known for her gap-toothed smile. Over the years, she’s been loud in her support of body positivity, even stating that, despite pressure from people online to close the gap in her smile, her signature gap-toothed grin was something that made her unique.
Recently, however, Jordyn decided it was time for a change. When clear aligners didn’t work for her, she got a set of veneers to close the gap in her smile. Although her smile was certainly already beautiful, we don’t think she’s lost any of her unique beauty with her new, equally gorgeous smile!
It’s normal to want to increase your self-confidence with a new, beautiful smile. Today’s technology and techniques allow you to create a unique smile that looks completely natural. Just as you never suspected that many celebrities have porcelain veneers, no one will realize you do, either.
