For movie stars on the red carpet, a perfect smile is as essential as the perfect outfit. While the limos, ball gowns, and adoring fans may be the territory of A-listers, you can have movie star teeth too! Here are some tricks of the trade that you can use to get that superstar smile:
Sip Through Straws
Beverages such as coffee, tea, and red wine tend to stain teeth. Your best defense is to use a straw to reduce the amount of liquid that comes into contact with your teeth.
Can’t bring yourself to use a straw while sipping red wine at a cocktail party? Here’s a trick that celebrities use. Spread a very thin film of petroleum jelly over your teeth to protect them from stains. It also allows for extended smile time since your lips won’t stick to your teeth.
The right shade of lipstick
To bring out the whitest shade of your smile, choose red lip colors with blue undertones. Avoid orange and yellow undertones, which will accentuate yellow teeth.
If you’ve brushed, flossed and whitened at home but still can’t get a dazzling movie star smile, then it’s time to bring in the experts. Consult your dental professional for whitening treatments that can get you a dramatically whiter smile in just one treatment. These specialized treatments are more powerful than the over-the-counter whitening products available in stores.
Straightening your smile no longer requires years of wearing metal on your teeth. There are a variety of “invisible” straightening options, which allow you to have a straighter, more beautiful smile in just a matter of months.
Veneers offer a beautiful solution for teeth that are damaged or discolored and can’t be corrected with crowns or whitening treatments. These ultra-thin, tooth-colored coverings are custom made and bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They give the appearance of beautifully shaped, white, natural teeth and will last for years with proper dental care.
