Have you ever looked at celebrities and wonder how they managed to get the perfect smile? The reason many celebrities have a gorgeous smile is because they have received veneers. Dental veneers are thin wafer shells that are placed over the front of the teeth. They are typically made out of ceramic or porcelain material.
There are a few steps involved in placing the veneers. The first thing the dentist will do is shave a portion of the enamel off. The dentist will only remove about a 1/2 millimeter of the enamel. The dentist will then take an impression. The impression will be used to make the veneers.
It can take up to two weeks for the veneers to be made in a laboratory. In some cases, the dentist will place temporary veneers until the permanent ones are ready. After the permanent veneers are ready, they will be cemented to the teeth. Patients will have a follow-up appointment a few weeks after getting the veneers. The purpose of the follow-up appointment is to see how the gums are responding to the veneers.
Below is a list of some of the celebrities who owe their gorgeous smile to veneers:
Nicholas Cage had extensive cosmetic dental work during the beginning of his acting career. Prior to his role in “Birdy”, he had two teeth pulled. He also got a set of veneers.
Gary Busey, who is an actor, was in need of extensive dental work. He once had a cocaine addiction, which wreaked havoc on his teeth. Fortunately, he was able to get a set of veneers that greatly improved his smile.
George Clooney is considered by many to be one of the sexiest men in Hollywood. George’s smile is one of the many things that women find attractive about him. However, he did not always have that beautiful smile he has today. George once had a teeth grinding habit. The constant grinding did serious damage to his teeth. That is why he decided to get a set of veneers.
Victoria Beckham is known for being a member of the popular 90s girl group, The Spice Girls. Victoria’s teeth were once slightly crooked. However, she got veneers, and that corrected the problem.
Tom Cruise once had bad teeth. They were crooked and discolored during his early career. However, once he started making good money from his movies, he decided to get a full set of veneers.
If you were to look at old pictures of Ben Affleck and compare them to recent photos, then you would clearly see a difference. Ben’s teeth were actually fine before, but the veneers helped lengthen them and improve his smile.
Curtis Jackson, who is better known as 50 Cent, also got veneers. He reportedly spent $50,000 on his veneers.
Nicole Polizzi, who is better known as Snooki, became famous for her role on “Jersey Shore.” Many people felt that Snooki’s teeth were fine. However, she decided to get veneers. She reportedly got veneers in the summer of 2012.
Hillary Duff once chipped her tooth during a concert. She not only had that one tooth repaired, but she also got a full set of veneers.
K.Michelle’s real name is Kimberly Michelle Pate. She is a singer. She is also known for her role on a reality show called “Love And Hip Hop Atlanta.” Veneers helped K. Michelle get the beautiful smile that she has today. In fact, some people have stated that K.Michelle would not have the flawless style that she has without veneers.
