Dr. Timothy Chase is a practicing partner in SmilesNY a leading cosmetic dentistry practice in New York City. According to Dr. Chase, a huge differentiating factor between looking fresh and youthful or looking older than you are, can be as simple as the shade of your teeth, and the overall health of your smile. Here is what Dr. Chase has to say about these stars
Dr. Chase picks for the best:
Justin Bieber for a bad boy, Justin has a charming, good boy smile. He has straight white teeth and shows little gum, which gives him a nice, healthy adolescent look. Although Justin has a youthful smile, he could possibly benefit from a gum lift to expose more tooth, but that may happen naturally with age.
Kate Upton, a big part of Kate’s appeal is her girl-next-door quality, which is partly thanks to her playful smile. While not perfect, it appears to be healthy, natural and youthful - one could even say cute.
Ann Hathaway has the big Hollywood smile, the likes we haven’t seen since the days of Julia Robert. When she smiles, it lights up the room, the screen, or red carpet.
Kim Karsashian love her, or hate her, Kim Kardasian has one of the prettiest smiles in the public eye. Full lips and perfectly proportioned white teeth all add up to the best smile out there!
Dr. Chase picks for the worst:
Miley Cyrus, has had some cosmetic dental work done, which has improved her smile a great deal. It appears she has had veneers and possibly some gum work as well. There are however, a few areas where she could improve. Some gum re-contouring and different shaped veneers would change her overall look and give her smile a bit more balance and beauty.
Steve Bushemi is famous for his famously bad teeth and doesn’t seem to be bothered by them at all. One could only imagine the acting parts he would get if he cleaned his smile up a bit. Steve would benefit from orthodontics to move the teeth to the proper position, and veneers to whiten them.
Madonna, Madge’s teeth are beginning to show their age- she can certainly keep her signature gap tooth look, but whitening them would go a long way to improving her look.
Charlie Sheen has had some very public tough times and his smile was no exception. His life seems to have turned around some and so has his smile. Charlie looks like he could use some new veneers or crowns- but this has already happened since his bad photo days. Although still a smoker, Sheen should whiten regularly.
