We suspected it all along – celebrities aren’t perfect. Their careers and their looks need a lot of managing. And a few of them could use a great cosmetic dentist. Jacksonville‘s Burgess Center for Cosmetic Dentistry and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentists have a few thoughts on the subject.
A recent survey by the AACD revealed cosmetic dentists’ top picks for the best celebrity smiles. Choices were among this year’s Oscar nominees and the winners were:
- Natalie Portman
- James Franco
- Nicole Kidman
- Annette Bening
- Colin Firth
- Christian Bale
Perennial favorite Angelina Jolie won votes for the most kissable pout with Portman coming in second and Halle Berry and Julia Roberts in a third-place tie. The men’s category saw Jake Gyllenhaal beat longtime favorites like Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Denzel Washington.
But not all celebrity grins are golden. Among those needing a cosmetic dentist, AACD members say, are actor Tom Cruise, television news anchor Katie Couric, actress Jennifer Garner, performer Miley Cyrus and singer/songwriter Jewel. Dentists surveyed said they’d love to see Cruise get a total mouth makeover including veneers. They’d also like to fix retired New York Giants defensive end and NFL commentator Michael Strahan’s diastema (front tooth gap) and give former President George W. Bush splint therapy (bite correction), bonding and veneers.
As for the women, cosmetic dentists want to give Couric a gum lift and lengthen her front teeth; Cyrus a crown lengthening; Garner veneers and Jewel orthodontics and teeth whitening.
