How Do Celebrities Get White Teeth?

The natural color of teeth is almost never completely white. On top of that, there are other factors that contribute to the yellow tint or teeth discoloration and staining. Thorough oral hygiene and lifestyle habits can maintain your teeth in good and healthy condition for a long time, but it is very difficult to achieve a flawless smile without professional cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening. You might be wondering: “How do celebrities get white teeth?” In this article, we will talk about ways to achieve a perfect pearly smile.

How Do Celebrities Get White Teeth?

Probably the most obvious solution for achieving a flawless smile is teeth whitening. There are two types of whitening: professional and other-the-counter solutions. Many people think that there is no difference between the two and prefer other-the-counter whitening solutions because they tend to be cheaper and more accessible. However, celebrity-like white teeth are not likely to be achieved using this method. In fact, other-the-counter solutions can be damaging to your teeth and gums or simply not effective. If you want good quality and safe whitening, we recommend opting for a professional treatment.

Apart from whitening procedures, some celebrities might use dental veneers to achieve their perfect smiles. This procedure is completely different from whitening as it involves covering your teeth with porcelain shells.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening performed by your dentist ensures that you will avoid permanently damaging your teeth, which can happen if you use over-the-counter solutions at home. A dental professional will use a special concentrated agent (usually Hydrogen peroxide) on your teeth. It works by penetrating the enamel and oxidizing dark pigmented molecules in the tooth structure. In other words, the agent bleaches the tooth color to a whiter shade.

Professional teeth whitening usually involves using higher concentrations of the whitening solution, because it can be done safely by a qualified dentist. This means that results of the procedure are very noticeable already after one visit. In cases of more severe staining and discoloration, you might need several visits to achieve the desired results.

Dental Veneers

Another option to achieve a flawless smile is to use dental veneers. This solution can also be preferred in cases of severe staining when a whitening procedure might not be an optimal choice.

Dental veneers are porcelain tooth-colored shells that are attached to the front of your teeth. Typically, some part of a tooth’s enamel is removed before attaching dental veneers. This makes the procedure irreversible. But a straight, uniformed and white smile can be easily achieved with dental veneers.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

If done professionally, teeth whitening is safe. You can expect such side effects as teeth and gum sensitivity after the procedure. However, these side effects go away in a couple of days.

If you opt for over-the counter solutions after all, choose only ADA-approved products and follow the instructions exactly. Otherwise, it is hard to guarantee safety. Your teeth might get permanently damaged, making their appearance much worse than before the whitening.

White Teeth Do’s and Don’ts

Teeth whitening procedures and veneers are very effective when it comes to achieving a perfect smile. However, there is something else you can do on a regular basis to maintain the natural and healthy tint of your teeth.

  • Sufficient and thorough oral hygiene routine is absolutely essential in having a beautiful smile. In fact, you need to stay on top of it even if you have had teeth whitening. By brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day, you will remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth, preventing yellow tint and stains from accumulating.
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid damaging the enamel. Microabrasions on the surface of your teeth created by a hard brush will contribute to staining and discoloration.
  • Do not use abrasive toothpaste for the same reason. Choose a fluoride toothpaste instead.
  • Make sure to have professional cleanings every 6-12 months. In fact, your teeth can be slightly whitened by this procedure as well because it removes plaque, tartar, and surface stains that make your teeth look dimmer.
  • Avoid smoking, as it is one of the biggest contributors to yellow teeth.
  • Avoid foods and drinks that can stain your teeth: berries, juices, red wine, black tea, and products containing dye.
