Can you tell if a celeb has veneers on their teeth
From a professional perspective:Kate looks like she's had fixed orthodontics and bleaching.
Liz Hurley has got either crowns or veneers; but they appear to be excellent quality ( from a distance, obviously haven't looked close up or under the dental lamp).
You'd be mad to contemplate anything destructive like veneers or crowns, unless clinically necessary. Very real chance of these teeth then losing vitality - becoming root canals/ post-crowns / implants.
I like a chuckle about Hollywood types whose teeth resemble a toilet! (Bright white porcelain ) It’s especially funny when you can spot the sudden end to cosmetic dentistry. Crown, crown, crown, ooh look, natural tooth!!
I’ve got veneers. Everyone I’ve told that I have them are really surprised. You can get them to match your other teeth so they’re not bright white etc so they just look natural. However.... I regret having them in some ways. Whilst I’ve had no problems whatsoever with them I do cringe about the destruction to my actual teeth beneath them. I know it sounds stupid but I didn’t really know what they were going to do to my own teeth. Someone I know now has perfect teeth, she had many many problems caused by gum disease. She went for a Invisalign brace then had gaps filled in with composite fillings - sorry to all dentists if I’ve got that a bit wrong - I’m just going with what I remember her telling me! I would advise you to do a lot of research first as to the best option for you.
