Smile makeovers can provide patients with more than just a makeover aesthetically, but a makeover in confidence and self-esteem. Dr. Redford at Redford Dental Care can provide you with a complete smile makeover at his Carmichael dental office. Smile makeovers comprise of singular or multiple dental treatments completed to give you a brand new smile and to improve overall aesthetics. Typically, patients who are unhappy with their smile will schedule a smile makeover consultation with our dentist to find out what treatments they will need to fulfill their smile goals. Smile makeovers aren’t just for regular people, they are quite common with celebrities! In fact, most celebrities have had dental work done whether it’s something as simple as teeth whitening or as far as porcelain veneers and dental crowns. Find out what dental work some celebrities have had done and what your own options for a smile makeover are.
Mike Tyson – Smile Makeover
Everyone is familiar with Mike Tyson’s background as a heavyweight champion in boxing. As a result of his career, it did a number on his smile, requiring extensive dental work to repair the damage. His smile was notable for its gold front teeth, but with the help of dental work and a smile makeover, Mike Tyson helped seal in his prominent front tooth gap and traded his gold teeth for tooth-colored crowns. Now that he is no longer boxing, his new smile has helped him with his acting career.
Cher Lloyd – Gap Correction
After competing on the X-Factor and making a name for herself, singer, Cher Lloyd underwent a smile transformation to help her in her career in the spotlight. She had quite noticeable gaps in her front teeth and had these corrected through cosmetic dentistry through porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are placed over your teeth to give your current teeth a new shape and to help brighten stained or yellowed teeth. Cher Lloyd now has a bright and white gapless smile that she wears proudly on stage and in music videos.
Tom Cruise – Invisalign and Whitening
If you have ever seen an 80’s movie with Tom Cruise in it, you will notice his teeth were quite terrible. He had noticeable gaps and an off-center midline due to having teeth pulled. His teeth were also very crooked. Through Invisalign treatment and teeth whitening, Tom Cruise now has a flashy beautiful smile. Although his midline is still off-center, his smile has clearly been improved and no-doubt helped him excel in his career as an actor. Invisalign treatment is commonly used on celebrities due to its convenience and ability to be removed when necessary. Teeth whitening is also a common cosmetic dentistry treatment not only with celebrities but with patients in general. This cost-effective and time-efficient treatment can make a huge difference in your smile.
Zac Efron – Invisalign and Teeth Whitening
Before reaching his prime teen idol years, Zac Efron had a noticeable front tooth gap and yellowed teeth. With help from Invisalign treatment and teeth whitening, he now has a dashing smile to match his model good-looks. It’s no question that his smile makeover helped him in his career as an actor and performer.
Miley Cyrus – Porcelain Veneers
Although she reportedly had lingual braces during her youth, Miley Cyrus’s smile was still not perfect from braces alone. As a result, she reportedly received veneers to help straighten her teeth and make her small incisors look more proportionate. A simple fix like porcelain veneers can make all the difference in one’s smile, even if they are only on a few teeth. They can reshape your teeth, make your teeth look straighter, and improve whiteness. Talk to Dr. Redford about porcelain veneers treatment in Carmichael for more information.
Catherine Zeta-Jones – Teeth Whitening + Porcelain Veneers
Most known for her role in The Mask of Zorro, Jones used to have a very noticeable gap between her two front teeth and a pointy incisor. With porcelain veneers and teeth whitening, she was able to completely transform her smile into a picture-perfect one. Usually, only a few veneers are needed to reshape your smile and with help from teeth whitening, your entire mouth will be able to match. Teeth whitening treatment can be done in our Carmichael dental office, or at home if you prefer. Find out if porcelain veneers and teeth whitening are the right treatments for your smile makeover.
Celine Dion – Dental Crowns and Teeth Whitening
One of the world’s greatest singers, Celine Dion had discolored and crooked teeth and overlarge incisors at the beginning of her career in the 1980’s. Unfortunately, her talent didn’t help her achieve all of her fame. Her manager/husband recommended she receive dental work to help her reach international stardom. In order to fix her smile, Celine Dion had dental crowns placed over her incisors to help reshape them and ultimately her entire smile. These two crowns helped her entire smile look proportionate. Also, with teeth whitening treatment, her new smile was radiant and picture perfect. Dental crowns are an option for patients who want a more permanent solution to their smile than with porcelain veneers alone. Dr. Redford typically recommends dental crowns for Carmichael patients when they have decay or dental damage that requires a cap to protect the tooth from undergoing further harm. Dental crowns can also be used for cosmetic reasons, but are typically avoided due to the higher cost than with porcelain veneers.
Nicolas Cage – Braces and Teeth Whitening
Before reaching the height of his career, Nicolas Cage sported a crooked and yellowed smile. In order to fix this, he completed braces and teeth whitening treatment. Through these two simple procedures, Nicolas Cage can give a picture-perfect smile every time. If you are scared to have braces and don’t want to ruin your own pictures during treatment, Invisalign treatment in Carmichael is always an option. The treatment is basically invisible, and you can remove the aligners whenever you need to for special occasions or for eating.
George Clooney – Porcelain Veneers, Gum Contouring
As a young man, Clooney suffered from tooth grinding which resulted in ground down teeth and a gummy smile. In order to fix the damage, Clooney underwent gum contouring to help make his teeth appear to be longer and then had porcelain veneers placed over his teeth to reshape his smile and to give more length to his ground down teeth. He then received treatment for his teeth grinding habits and wears a mouth guard to sleep every night to prevent more damage from teeth grinding from occurring. Gum contouring and/or reshaping and porcelain veneers are the perfect cosmetic dentistry treatment combination to help patients who have a gummy smile. Gummy smiles are treatable and can make all the difference in a smile. Talk to Dr. Redford today if you are unhappy with your gummy smile in Carmichael.
Oprah Winfrey – Invisalign
Being in front of the camera for most of her career, Oprah’s teeth were always front and center. Her main problem was a lack of uniformity in her teeth. They weren’t straight and didn’t look proportionate at all. With help from Invisalign treatment, Oprah was able to continue being on camera without being self-conscious about having braces or receiving any orthodontic treatment. After completing her Invisalign treatment, Oprah now has a beautiful and straight smile that’s welcoming on magazines and televisions across the world.
David Bowie – Porcelain Veneers + Teeth Whitening
May he rest in peace, David Bowie didn’t always have the perfect smile that we remember him by. During the beginning of his career, his teeth were filled with staining, misalignment and gum recession. During the 1990’s, his smile was slowly transforming behind his fan’s eyes. Through help from porcelain veneers and teeth whitening, cosmetic dentists were able to hide the stains and reshape his teeth to make them appear longer and straighter and to help hide the gum recession that had taken place. It’s amazing how these two treatments can make the world of a difference in one’s smile.
50 Cent – Porcelain Veneers
Usually, when one wants to close the gaps on their smile, they would think that they would have to receive an orthodontic treatment like braces or Invisalign. 50 Cent on the other hand just opted for porcelain veneers. Also, it doesn’t fix the gap, it can hide it no problem. 50 Cent used to have a noticeable gap in his front teeth and a slightly crooked smile. With help from porcelain veneers, the gap is now closed and his teeth now appear to be whiter, straighter and better aligned. If you have a slight dental problem and aren’t interested in braces or Invisalign, talk to Dr. Redford to find out if porcelain veneers can solve your dental problems.
Gwen Stefani – Braces
While in No Doubt, Gwen Stefani was showing off metal braces she was trying to disguise as a fashion statement. She later confessed that she had them because she could finally afford them. They made a huge difference in her smile along with regular teeth whitening to complement her bright red lipstick. Most patients think they won’t be able to afford braces or Invisalign treatment, but they should know that most dental insurances will cover a portion of the treatment. If not, we have payment plan options and other financing options to help you receive the dental care you need regardless if you can afford it right now or not. Talk with our staff at Redford Dental Care about our dental financing options in Carmichael.
Hilary Duff – Porcelain Veneers
During her days on the Lizzie Macguire Show, Hilary Duff showed off yellowed and imperfect teeth throughout the series. She eventually went to the dentist for porcelain veneers after chipping a tooth on her microphone and then again when chewing too hard on a bagel. Her porcelain veneers whitened her smile and helped make her teeth more proportionate and straight.
Chris Rock – Braces and Teeth Whitening
After earning money from working on the film Lethal Weapon, Chris Rock used his money to fix his teeth with braces and teeth whitening. The total cost ended up being at least $15,000.
