Whether they are rock stars, actors or famous athletes, celebrities all have one thing in common: a big, white smile. Using home care products and a few trips to the dentist you, too, can have a smile like a celebrity.
Things You'll Need
Assess the shape of your teeth. Are they straight, or do you need some dental work? While not all celebrities have completely straight teeth, most have even teeth that are not obviously crooked. If your teeth are noticeably crooked, you might want to make an appointment with your dentist or orthodontist for a retainer or braces.
Purchase a home tooth whitening kit, such as Crest Whitening Strips for visibly whiter teeth within 10 days. The kit contains strips that you will apply directly to your upper and lower front teeth. Leave the strips on for 20 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water. Apply the strips twice daily for 10 days and you will have a whiter smile.
Determine at this point whether your smile measures up to that of a celebrity, or if you would prefer an even brighter smile. Many celebrities use ZOOM! laser technology to brighten their teeth. This process is only available at a dental office. If you are interested in having white teeth, such as Jessica Simpson or Miley Cyrus, then you might want to call local dental offices to see where ZOOM! can be performed.
Go for the full celebrity treatment. Ever notice that the celebrity smile isn’t just brighter, but that their lips are fuller as well? That’s because many celebrities see dermatologists to have collagen lip injections performed. Lip injections with collagen plump up the lips, making the smile much fuller. If you’re interested in a smile similar to Angelina Jolie or Pamela Anderson, then you might need to visit your local dermatologist for a collagen lip injection.
Brush and floss your teeth daily to remove stains and keep your teeth healthy and white. Use whitening toothpaste even after you’ve applied whitening strips to keep the stains off.
