Get a Celebrity Smile in Colorado Springs

April 25, 2014

Filed under: Celebrity Smiles,Veneers — admin @ 4:44 pm

The next time you see a movie star on screen looking like a million bucks with their perfect smiles, know that they’ve had some expert help.

The list of film stars with “veneers” is extensive: Victoria Beckham, Aishwarya Rai, George Clooney, Catherine Zeta Jones, Cheryl Cole… and the list goes on. These celebs have opted for porcelain veneers that wrap around the teeth to bridge ugly gaps, hide stains and generally brighten the smile.

The benefits are immense. Veneers help hide gum recession, smoke stains and fix the general symmetry of the jaw. Also, the boost in one’s confidence after the procedure is a major factor.

The process is simple. Veneers are installed on top of the teeth after a tiny bit of the masher is shaved off to accommodate materials ranging from porcelain to other composites. Innovation in this field has also led to porcelain veneers being directly embedded to the tooth’s enamel, making the procedure permanent.

Celebs with the Whitest Teeth

January 22, 2013

Filed under: Celebrity Smiles,Teeth Whitening — admin @ 9:35 am


It’s the first thing people notice on your face. It has the ability to age you up to 10 years if it is not taken care of. And it shows the world that you’re happy. It’s your smile.

The brighter and whiter your smile is, the healthier and younger you look. When you think of anti-aging treatments, your first thought may not be your teeth, but perhaps it should be. “More people are becoming age-conscious and searching for means to help them look younger. What most people don’t realize is that age affects more than just skin and hair,” says Tinley Park, IL cosmetic dentist Zack Zaibak, DDS. “One aspect that reveals your true age is your smile.”

The easiest way to instantly makeover your smile, is to whiten your teeth. Look at how beautiful and effervescent Kim Kardashian looks with her pearly whites.

Scroll through this gallery of celebrities with the whitest smiles and get tips on how you too can capture a brighter smile.

Kirsten Dunst’s Smile Makeover: From Crooked to Confident

August 6, 2012

Filed under: Celebrity Smiles,Porcelain Veneers — admin @ 6:40 pm

Vocal in the past about being a fan of her crooked teeth, Kirsten Dunst has made a dramatic dental change—now her once-crooked smile is sexy and sophisticated—taking her from the “girl next door” to a more elegant-looking actress.

A smile makeover using porcelain veneers can correct many aesthetic dental problems, including: stains or discoloration, chips and cracks, a sharp, fang-like appearance, spaces between teeth, and other imperfections. Even in cases of misalignment or crookedness, veneers can often perform “instant orthodontics”.

At Aesthetic Dentistry By Design, we will be glad to help evaluate your specific situation, listen to the exact changes you have in mind, and show you examples of the end result, before any treatment is performed.

The Dental Cost of Being a Vampire

November 17, 2011

Filed under: Celebrity Smiles — admin @ 6:35 pm

Who’s excited for the first installment of “Breaking Dawn,” a two-part film adapting the final story in the “Twilight” saga?

Fox Business did a fun piece on the cost of being a vampire.  Here are the dental costs.

Those Fangs Won’t Clean Themselves

Vampires may be able to take a bullet just fine, but unfortunately for many of them, gingivitis doesn’t care if you’re 40 years old or 800, and fangs don’t brush themselves.

If a few years of lax flossing leaves you squirming in the dentist’s chair, imagine what a few centuries of haphazard dental hygiene will do. Spring a cavity in one of those teeth, and a vampire may as well get a wooden stake to the gums.

It would take several hundred yards of dental floss per month ($30) plus a specially designed toothbrush for dogs ($50) just to adequately clean those enormous canine teeth.

Of course, as everyone who knows anything about vampires knows, vampires’ fangs detract when they’re relaxed and going about their daily errands. You don’t have to be a dentist to recognize the host of gum-infection risks this presents. Even the best dental plans wouldn’t fully cover that sort of disaster, leaving a vampire out up to $5,000 every several years to get those evil ivories reconstructed.

In the end, basic — albeit humiliating — caps may be necessary.

ArmourBite: Mouthwear for better golf

October 10, 2011

Filed under: Celebrity Smiles,Under Armour Performance Mouthwear — admin @ 9:13 am

Golf Digest recently posted this

Available at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design, Under Armour Performance Mouthwear has been used by LPGA’s Vicky Hurst and Champions Tour player Bruce Fleisherwho is an outspoken advocate of its benefits.

From the article:

It is called the potato-chip test. Place a potato chip in your mouth and attempt to hit a shot without breaking the chip.

“The concept of affecting performance by adjusting the jaws is centuries old. Viking and Roman warriors often bit on leather straps before going to battle. [Olympic sprinter] Usain Bolt used to bite on a neckless when he’d run.”

What the ArmourBite does is adjusts the placement of the jaw. “The wedge changes the physiology of what’s happening,” Molhoek said. “It interrupts the signal to the brain and as a result of that leads to the benefits — increased strength, endurance, reduction of lactic acid, reduction of cortisol. Cortisol has been linked to the yips. It’s really a bad thing, the antithesis of testosterone. It saps your ability to perform.”

Hurst said that it did not make her a better golfer, but it helped her play her best, according to Molhoek. The first time Fleisher used it,  he reported no fatigue for the first time in years. Fleisher said that this product made him feel exactly the same on hole one and hole 18.

Hundreds of athletes currently use the Under Armour Performance Mouthwear to improve their sports performance. It’s recommended for adults and children eight and older who play contact, no-contact, and limited-contact sports, including football, baseball, soccer, tennis, and golf.

15 Stars that Owe Their Smiles to Cosmetic Dentistry

July 21, 2011

Filed under: Celebrity Smiles — admin @ 9:08 am

Cheryl Cole‘s were straightened and the fangs were reshaped to give her a more perfect smile. Whitening was also done on her stained teeth and she now sports beautiful porcelain veneers to give her that perfect celebrity smile.

Catherine Zeta Jones‘ beautiful teeth today are likely the result of porcelain veneers as well as some costly teeth whitening treatments

At 15 Miley Cyrus underwent cosmetic dentistry to have veneers placed on her teeth that would give them a more perfect alignment. The veneers made her teeth straighter and her front teeth look far less prominent than they did before the procedure. Her small incisors were also covered in order to make them more balanced with the rest of her smile.

Nicolas Cage has undergone several dental treatments including braces. In fact, he was sporting silver braces at the Annual Writers Guild awards in 2003 on his lower teeth. Before braces, Cage’s teeth were crooked. After braces he has also had teeth whitening treatments to give him the perfectly bright smile that he has today.

Invisible braces helped to pull Zac Efron’s teeth together and give him a more grownup smile. Teeth whitening was also in order to help brighten up Efron’s smile.

Filed under: Celebrity Smiles — admin @ 10:09 am

Here’s an article that takes a look at some famous faces who have spent more than their fair share of hours in the dentist’s chair…

“It’s a well known fact that to cut it in Hollywood you need a megawatt smile. But as celebrities often play their cards close to their chest when it comes to cosmetic procedures, it requires some super sleuthing and a couple of ‘before’ photos to work out whether in fact mother nature blessed them with great genes, or if they have had a helping hand in pursuit of the perfect pearly whites.”

Hollywood’s Worst Teeth Sometimes Make the Best Characters

August 22, 2010

Filed under: Celebrity Smiles — admin @ 9:17 am

We found a great post about “less than perfect” smiles that made it big — really big.”

From the article by Thomas P. Connelly, D.D.S.

Here is a of “less than perfect teeth” list with many well-known actors, celebrities, and similar. In fact, for many of these people, you’ll see that their smile actually adds to their unique look, and in some cases, they may not have been as successful had they sported a “perfect smile.”

Steve Buscemi

Steve is our winner in the “least likely Hollywood smile” category. Discolored, crooked, protruding snaggletooth… Steve has it all. But think of the characters he’s played — Donnie in The Big Leboski, Carl in Fargo, Tony Blundetto in The Sopranos… seriously memorable characters that instantly come to mind. His characters come to life partly because of his unique look, and that includes his less than perfect teeth.
Jon Heder

Not much tooth makeup was needed to turn Heder into Napoleon Dynamite. But would he have been nearly as memorable with a perfect smile? No way, no how. Jon gets a lot of mileage out of his large choppers — they are actually the focal point of his face.

Gary Busey

Gary has really large teeth that go straight across – they are sooo straight across it almost looks like they are artificially made to be that way (but they aren’t — who would do that?) Gary’s teeth definitely lead to his characters jumping off the screen — when he smiles, you really can’t tell if it’s warm or sinister… Gary keeps you guessing. A great asset to a great actor.
Mike Tyson

The “Baddest Man on the Planet” had a smile that could make grown men shiver. Exemplified by the “gold grillz,” Tyson’s smile is a mix of missing teeth, jagged “out of place” teeth, and more. But you know, it also has a warm quality to it. I couldn’t imagine “Iron Mike” with a Hollywood smile.
David Letterman

Is there a more famous “gap” than David Letterman’s? It’s unlikely — his gap is a definite part of “him” that it’s hard to imagine Dave without it. Every caricature of Dave emphasizes his famous gap, and it’s not done with a hint of meanness — it’s just Dave.

Let’s not make this a “guys only” list, ok? Madonna is entering her third decade as a major pop star, sex symbol, and whatever else she chooses to be. In fact, it’s arguable that there hasn’t been a more influential female star in the last twenty years. And she’s done this with a smile that’s part Letterman, part Busey, and all Material Girl. She’s hot, she’s happening, she’s got a less than perfect smile, and she doesn’t care. She’s Madonna, and that’s that.
