Porcelain veneers are a go-to cosmetic dental enhancement for many celebrities and athletes and for anyone looking to increase their self-confidence by improving their smiles. It’s no wonder you see so many famous people with gleaming smiles because veneers are a quick way to give your smile a polished, beautiful look.
Veneers can be a solution for a variety of smile woes, including discolored teeth; misaligned teeth; chipped or cracked teeth; or, gaps in teeth. In fact, veneers are often applied in conjunction with another cosmetic or restorative dental procedure like gum contouring, dental implants, or even orthodontics (for those with more severe tooth misalignment issues). However, many people achieve their desired results with veneers alone.
Did you know that you can completely transform your smile with veneers in as little as two visits to your dentist’s office? Some of the most amazing smile transformations have been a result of veneers, which can change the appearance and shape of your teeth, mouth, and jaw by broadening, whitening, and straightening your smile. Your skilled dentist at Millennium Dental in Plano will be able to assess the state of your current oral health and the condition of your teeth in order to prescribe the best treatment option for giving you the straight, gleaming smile you’ve always wanted.
Check out the before and after shots of these five celebrities who opted to get veneers to enhance their smiles—ultimately improving their self-confidence, and probably their careers as well.
Chrissy Teigen is known for being a Sports Illustrated model, an actress, the wife of John Legend, a new mom, and a queen of Twitter clapbacks. Teigen has always had a straight, beautiful smile but was a serious teeth grinder. This condition—called bruxism—can cause teeth to become flattened, fractured, and chipped and can wear down your enamel, exposing deeper layers of your tooth. In Teigen’s case, this is exactly what was happening. While her smile remained straight, her teeth were being broken down by bruxism. This is when she decided to see her dentist for porcelain veneers to correct the length of her teeth and to prevent her smile from diminishing any further. See Teigen before and after.
Victoria Beckham holds many titles, including: businesswoman, model, fashion designer, and wife to soccer star, David Beckham. You could say that being in the spotlight is her thing. Her most memorable title though is probably as Posh Spice of the hit 90s, all-female pop group, Spice Girls (cue the song “Wannabe” playing in your head right now!). Since the mid-90s, during the height of the Spice Girls fame, Beckham enhanced her smile with porcelain veneers. Now, whenever you see her on the red carpet or at a royal wedding, you see a straighter, whiter smile, which is the result of perfectly-designed porcelain veneers to match her oh-so-posh style and attitude. See Beckham before and after.
Tom Cruise is an iconic American actor (regardless of some of his past, stranger antics). His role as Maverick in the movie Top Gun inspired many young boys (and girls!) to want to become fighter pilots. Cruise’s dashing looks and his bad-boy aura in the film certainly brought him to the top of the American movie charts. But, that wasn’t always the case for Cruise. During his younger years, his smile was more crooked and yellow than straight and white…a far cry from what you see today. So, Cruise did what many celebrities do. He went to his dentist for a cosmetic porcelain veneers treatment, transforming his smile into the flashy pearly whites you see today. See Cruise before and after.
Emma Watson knew from a young age that she wanted to be an actress. Her acting debut was in her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movie series. As a young Hollywood star, the appearance of Watson’s teeth was not that important, which is why you’ll notice that her smile in earlier photos reflects that youthful plainness. But, as Watson grew into her role both on and off the screen, her smile transformed as well. With the help of a skilled dentist, she was able to give her smile a polished appearance with porcelain veneers, while still maintaining a natural, youthful look…as if she merely grew into the beautiful smile that you’d expect a heroine to have. See Watson before and after.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a worldwide soccer star (or futbol star, for all you purists) who is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time. He has scored over 680 goals in his professional soccer career, while playing for both club and national teams. Born in Portugal, Ronaldo loved soccer from an early age, but a heart condition prevented him from playing. He had surgery to correct the heart condition and continued to play, becoming the soccer legend he is today. In addition to being a soccer star, he’s received quite a bit of attention for his good looks, which have landed him some modeling gigs. But, if you look at earlier photos of him, you’ll see that his teeth weren’t always the nice chompers you see today. Ronaldo had misaligned and discolored teeth, as well as a gummy smile. A combination of orthodontics and cosmetic dental procedures, like porcelain veneers, have produced the beautiful smile you see him flashing today. See Ronaldo before and after.
While the examples above are certainly high profile, you don’t have to be a paparazzi darling to have a dazzling smile. Many people choose veneers as a quick and permanent cosmetic dental enhancement. Dr. Harrison at Millennium Dental says, “Many of our patients feel like porcelain veneers were the best improvement they could have made for their overall confidence!”
