Cosmetic Dentistry: Are Straight, White Teeth a Status Symbol for Celebrities?

By February 4, 2016 No Comments



One of the first things we notice about someone is their smile. When looking at a smile, teeth that are uneven, out of alignment, discolored, or even chipped stick out like a sore thumb. According to a study by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 96 percent of adults surveyed explained that an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to the opposite sex.

The next time you see a picture of a celebrity with perfect teeth, understand that they were probably not born with them. Their stunning smile may be the product of thousands of dollars and the work of the top oral surgeons in the country.
