Ten Best Celebrity Veneers

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0 | March 3rd, 2016

It’s not just a coincidence that most Hollywood stars have beautiful teeth. Getting veneers is at the top of the list of what celebrities do to look more beautiful than the rest of us (which is what we require of them). Most celebrities  choose to have veneers to disguise stains, gaps, chips, and other imperfections and  get that “red-carpet” smile. They are normally not born with the perfect smiles that we see.  They purchase those smiles.

A veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth.  There are two purposes for having this procedure done.  The first purpose is to improve the looks of the tooth. The second purpose is to protect the tooth from damage.  The health-conscious celebrity will want to do both.

There are also two types of materials used to apply veneers.  A composite veneer is one that is placed either directly to the tooth, or indirectly (that is, prepared in a lab, and then bonded to the tooth).  A porcelain veneer is applied only indirectly to the tooth. The advantage of a porcelain veneer is that it can disguise gaps without aligners or braces.

Additionally, there are two types of veneers:  the first is a full veneer crown, which covers all the tooth surfaces.  The second is a laminate veneer, which only covers the surface of the tooth (providing beauty, but not necessarily full quality).

One might therefore conclude that the best veneer, one that a celebrity can afford and would prefer, would have the following qualities:

  1.  Improve the looks of the tooth
  2. Protect the tooth from damage
  3. Provide beauty
  4. Provide quality

So in discussing celebrity veneers, you would likely be discussing veneers that possess all  the above-listed qualities – or you could be talking about veneers that are usually chosen by celebrities.  Any veneers possessing both of these attributes, would definitely earn the title of “celebrity veneer.”

Which  celebrities have the 10 best veneers?  There are some stars who are always mentioned when you talk about the beautiful results.  Others are mentioned but with a negative caveat such as, “nice but too big”, or “should have gotten braces first.”

Celebrities that seem to be mentioned the most when you talk about beautiful smiles after veneers are:

  1. Tom Cruise
  2. Miley Cyrus
  3. Jamie Foxx
  4. 50 Cent
  5. Hilary Duff
  6. Catherine Zeta-Jones
  7. Denzel Washington
  8. Jessica Simpson
  9. Ben Affleck
  10. Zac Effron

Veneers helped Tom Cruise become a star.  Miley Cyrus’ veneers are called “the best.” Jamie Foxx gets the nod as “one of the best.” 50 Cent’s mega-watt smile “upped his game.”   Hilary Duff’s smile makeover boosted her career. As for Catherine Zeta-Jones, it is said that veneers  transformed her career also.  Denzel Washington is known for his “famous smile.”  Jessica Simpson’s smile is called “perfect..” Ben Affleck’s veneers make him a tad more glamorous, and  Zac Effron is on absolutely every list.

New Trends

These days choices in getting that beautiful Hollywood smile are trending toward the idea that “less is more.” Stars want teeth that are big, but not too big, and white, but not too white.  Like the main character in Goldilocks and the Three Bears, they want their celebrity veneers to be not too little, and not too big, but just right!
