It is no secret that Hollywood is a very competitive place, especially in the looks department. There is a lot of pressure for both male and female celebrities to look their best at all times and always be ahead of the game in regards to beauty standards. For celebrities, their face is their commodity, and this is why many choose to fix things about themselves that they do not like or that make it more difficult for them to get the kind of work they want. Statistics say that many people find a nice smile and/or good teeth to be one of the most attractive aspects of a person, so it is no surprise that many celebrities choose to fix their teeth if they have any issues. Here are just a few of the celebrities who have had cosmetic dentistry. Some of them you might never have known.
• Ben Affleck- Ben Affleck is a well-known actor, most recently for playing the rich and dynamic millionaire, Bruce Wayne who leads a secret life fighting crime as Batman. Long before he landed this role, however, Ben Affleck opted to have a cosmetic dentist help him fix his smile. Prior to the work, he had small, rounded teeth. Now, he has larger, more uniform teeth that have also benefitted from whitening. Perhaps the character of Batman does not smile too often, but the actor Ben Affleck can sure feel confident to do so now.
• Hilary Duff- Many saw Hilary Duff grow up on her Disney Channel show Lizzie McGuire. In the show she struggled with becoming a teenager, dealing with crushes, friendships, fights and puberty. In real life, she dealt with small, rounded teeth that made her self conscious. Now, 30 year old Hilary has beautiful veneers that give her teeth a much more impactful and even look.
• Zac Efron- A heartthrob as a teen who has turned into a highly-paid movie star lately, did not always have the most confident smile. Back when he began his career as a dancing basketball player in High School Musical, he also sported a noticeable gap in his front teeth. To correct this problem, he chose to go the discreet route and use Invisalign to give him the smile he wanted. Now, Zac will flash his pearly whites in any occasion.
• Oprah- Another well known celebrity who has used Invisalign to perfect their smile is Oprah Winfrey. She could be spotted wearing the clear braces on her show as she hosted, but did not often talk about the process. She opted to get her teeth fixed later in her life than many, but one the wonderful things about Invisalign is how universal it is. It can be used at any age and still helps to provide discreet dental work.
Teeth and smiles are an important part of the Hollywood lifestyle. For many celebrities, investing in cosmetic dentistry is a smart decision that will not only make them feel more confident, but can help bring them career success as well.
