The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentists ranked Natalie Portman, Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and Colin Firth as having some of the top smiles in Hollywood. With the help of Dr. Stephen Burds in Des Moines, Iowa, you could make the list next time. As your favorite actors step on stage to accept their Academy Awards this Sunday, they’ll probably be full of smiles. If there was an award for “best smile,” would you win? The following smile assessments can determine if you would be nominated for the Tooth Awards.
What color are your teeth? If they’re white and shiny, you might win an award — of sorts! A bright smile shines under the spotlight and makes your mouth look younger and fresher. But just because your teeth are discolored and chipped doesn’t mean you’re out of the running. Dr. Burds can enhance the appearance of your grin with cosmetic services, like whitening, veneers, or bonding.
How are your teeth aligned? The award of high self-confidence and a better image goes to the person whose teeth are straight and symmetrical. Misaligned teeth can be unappealing, painful, and difficult to clean. They may also cause difficulties eating and speaking. However, if your teeth are crooked, gapped, crowded, misaligned, or misshapen, Dr. Burds can add you to the nominee list by adjusting or hiding your alignment problems.
If you’re missing teeth, you may also miss the win. Missing teeth are unattractive, and they can also cause problems with eating and speaking. In addition, surrounding teeth may drift out of place to pick up the workload for missing teeth. Dr. Burds can restore your nomination by restoring your smile with dental implants, dentures, or bridges.
Once your celebrity smile enhancements increase your fame, you may have to kiss your crush. Are you prepared? Bad breath and dry lips are offputting. To avoid humiliation, ask Dr. Burds how to keep your breath fresh and your lips hydrated.
