Superstar Cosmetic Smile Enhancements

People often receive cosmetic surgery procedures to make themselves look better. Nose jobs, implants, liposuction, Botox, and lifts are all techniques that people use to enhance their appearance. Another way you can enhance your body is through your smile. A survey by the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) revealed that more than 50 percent of people consider the smile the first facial feature they notice. Before you rush out to the cosmetic surgeon, visit Dr. Kobak to get an appearance adjustment with smile enhancements.

Looking Younger

Joan Rivers, Bruce Jenner, Kathy Griffin, Janice Dickinson, Sharon Osbourne, Madonna, and John Travolta are some famous stars who have been rumored to have facelifts or injections to remove wrinkles and look younger. However, the AAP poll revealed that people are seven times more likely to have periodontal and smile enhancements than face lifts. The simple act of smiling can make you look younger by raising your facial muscles. In addition, cosmetic tooth enhancements, like whitening and veneers, can help cover flaws on your teeth that make your smile look worn out or aged.

The AAP survey also found that smile enhancement procedures outnumber eyelid surgeries five to one. Hillary Clinton, Al Pacino, Mickey Rourke, Jane Fonda, Kathy Griffin, and Janice Dickinson have all shown signs of having eyebrow or eyelid lifts to remove baggy skin and show off their eyes. Similarly, a crown lengthening or “gum lift” procedure can remove excess gum tissue to reveal more of your smile.

Looking Fuller

Many celebrities, like Ashlee Simpson, Dolly Parton, Heidi Montag, Janice Dickinson (yet again), Joan Rivers, and Sharon Osbourne, have been rumored to have collagen injections to make their lips look fuller and plumper. Instead of focusing on your lips, you can emphasize another part of your mouth: your teeth! To make your smile look fuller, you could consider dental implants to replace missing teeth. Replacement teeth will make your smile look full, complete, and brand new.

Looking Thinner

Paula Abdul, Kate Winslet, Lady Gaga, Calista Flockhart, Audrey Hepburn, Elton John, and Mary-Kate Olsen have all received help for their eating disorders. Eating disorders not only affect your body, but when the stomach acid comes up through your mouth, it comes into contact with your teeth. Over time, this acid can erode your outer protective layer of enamel.

The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that people who have had smile-enhancing treatments are rated more attractive, popular, successful, and friendly. Dr. Kobak can enhance your smile with safe, effective cosmetic treatments to make you look just as beautiful as other cosmetic surgery enhancements.
