Celebrity Dental Disasters

Has your favorite celebrity received a smile makeover? Cosmetic dental services can beautify your smile, but if not done properly by your experienced Atlanta dentist, treatments could leave your teeth looking unnatural and unhealthy. Let’s take a look at how a visit to Dr. Pate can help you avoid the following dental disasters.

Unnatural-Looking Veneers

After chipping her teeth on microphones, actress and singer Hilary Duff received a set of porcelain veneers to hide her imperfections. Unfortunately for Duff, her new teeth looked too big and too long. She later returned to her cosmetic dentist for a redo, and she now has the beautiful, natural-looking smile she flaunts today. To prevent an odd-looking, oversized smile, Dr. Pate will take impressions of your teeth and gums to create the perfect size and shape for your veneers. A dental ceramist will hand-sculpt your veneers to complement your mouth and face appropriately.

Over-Whitening Teeth

As you age, your teeth begin to show signs of wear, one of which is discoloration. Regis Philbin is just one of many celebrities who displays a bright white smile despite his years. Philbin’s smile, however, some people consider too white. If you over-whiten your teeth, it can cause sensitivity, irritation, erosion, and further discoloration. A pageant-white smile can look fake on an aging adult. Luckily for you, Dr. Pate offers professional in-office or take-home bleaching treatments to safely and effectively brighten your smile to the perfect shade. Some cosmetic dentists believe that Philbin’s blinding smile is the result of veneers—not bleaching—but either way, the shade of white you choose should look completely natural.

Fighting Gum Disease

Comedienne Whoopi Goldberg discussed her dental trouble on an episode of her talk show, The View. Goldberg admitted that she neglected her teeth for so long and may have to lose her two front teeth. She encourages the audience to maintain proper hygiene and dental visits to keep both their mouths and bodies healthy. Dr. Pate will perform a complete evaluation to detect and treat gum disease in its early stages to help prevent further oral and health complications.

Fortunately for you, Dr. Pate has plenty of experience in cosmetic, general, and family dentistry so your smile makeover will be correct the first time. Contact Dentistry in Buckhead at (404) 266-9424 to request a cosmetic consultation.  We welcome patients from Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Lenox, Brookhaven, Atlanta, and surrounding communities.
