Not everyone is born with a perfect smile, and in Hollywood, looks are everything. One of the most popular cosmetic procedures with celebrities doesn’t even involve needles and can shave years off of your appearance. So what do stars swear by? The answer: veneers.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are permanent, ultra-thin pieces of porcelain or composite resin that are carefully applied to the front side of teeth to change their appearance. If you have discoloration, chips, gaps, or uneven teeth, veneers could be a great option for you.
Who Has Veneers?
These celebrities are rumored to have veneers:
Back in his High School Musical days, Zac Efron sported a famously gap-toothed smile. Today, however, the gap is noticeably gone, replaced by a straight, white, and even smile. Many patients with gapped teeth opt for veneers instead of braces for quicker results that are easier to maintain.
Older pictures of Tom Cruise show him with a smile that’s starkly different from the one that you’re familiar with. His formerly gapped, crooked, and yellow teeth are now dazzling. He probably has veneers to thanks for his completely new yet natural-looking smile.
Lindsay Lohan used to have stained, chipped, and small teeth. Thanks to veneers, she now has a bolder and brighter smile. She isn’t shy to admit that she has veneers, either. In 2014, she famously underwent surgery to fix a broken veneer on her reality show, Lindsay.
The seemingly ageless Demi Moore has had a little help from veneers. While she used to have a deeply stained, slightly misaligned smile, her teeth are now virtually perfect. Not many people realize that veneers are an alternative to teeth whitening treatments for fixing severely stained or discolored teeth.
Even soccer stars need sparkling smiles! Older pictures of the Real Madrid forward reveal that he had a gapped, discolored smile and even a snaggletooth. Today you wouldn’t be able to tell that he has ever had teeth that were in bad shape! His teeth are the right size, shape, and shade.
Even if you’re not walking down a red carpet anytime soon, veneers are a fantastic option for correcting aesthetic imperfections.
