Celebrity dentist in Newport Beach CA

Make your Hollywood-smile dream a reality.

Dentists have been helping Hollywood stars enhance their smiles since the ’80s when cosmetic dentistry, or smile makeovers, became popular. Today, it’s tough to find a celebrity who hasn’t had some level of cosmetic dental care done, even something as simple as teeth whitening.

If you’re not completely happy with your smile, you can follow in the footsteps of A-listers and pursue a smile makeover.

Unforgettable Celebrity Smile Makeovers

Search for older photos of prominent celebrities, and you’ll discover how different their smiles looked before becoming famous. The truth is, being born with a picture-perfect smile is exceptionally rare! Often it isn’t until a celeb achieves notable success in their acting, music, or athletic career that they invest in a smile makeover.

Some memorable examples of stars who took their smiles from “OK” to “wow” include:

  • Cardi B

Cardi B is openly proud of her smile, even including a line about fixing her teeth in one of her hit singles. Her cosmetic dentist used porcelain veneers for her smile makeover.

  • Zac Efron

Zac Efron had an obvious gap between his front teeth, which he had closed after his breakout role in “High School Musical.” It’s reasonable to believe he opted for veneers or crowns on these teeth.

  • Nicolas Cage

Early in his career, Nicolas Cage’s smile looked drastically different than it does now. He underwent a complete smile makeover with a set of porcelain veneers to cover his stained, crooked teeth.

  • Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise completely changed his smile after a few minor acting roles, which helped rocket his success in Hollywood. His extensive smile makeover was possible with ceramic braces followed by porcelain veneers.

  • Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus has a naturally gummy smile, which she embraces. Rather than getting gum contouring, she kept her smile makeover natural and subtle with veneers to straighten her teeth’s appearance.

How Cosmetic Dentists Design Smiles

So how do celebrity dentists achieve these incredible smile makeovers for their clients? The answer is smile design, a technique used by the best cosmetic dentists to create a completely personalized result that complements your unique facial characteristics. 

Your face and natural smile anatomy play a crucial role in any smile makeover. If these natural features are ignored, the results will be less than ideal. For example, an actress like Julia Roberts has a wide smile and beautiful teeth, but if your face is very slender and your smile more subtle, attempting to mimic her smile won’t be effective.

Instead, a skilled dentist, like Dr. Desai, will evaluate your features very carefully, including the shape of your lips, the curvature of your full smile, your face shape, and even the shape and width of your eyes. You’ll also have a thorough conversation about what you want to see in your smile. 

Dr. Desai will fully understand how you perceive your smile and your goals before putting together a treatment plan. Spending time carefully planning the blueprint of your smile makeover ensures the final result is symmetrical and naturally complements your facial features.

Achieving a Luminous Smile Makeover

Smile Design is customized to meet your needs, including which services Dr. Desai uses in your unique treatment plan. 

An extensive smile makeover may include multiple cosmetic dental services, such as:

  • Dental crowns on weakened or decayed teeth
  • Porcelain veneers to cover staining and misalignment
  • Gum contouring to lift the gumline and balance the smile

For a natural smile makeover, you may only need:

  • Invisalign to straighten crooked teeth
  • Veneers to close a gap between front teeth

Or if you love your overall smile but want a boost:

  • Dental bonding to smooth out superficial chips
  • Professional teeth whitening to lift deep stains

You have complete control over your smile makeover. If you like the gap between your teeth or have grown to love your gummy smile, these features don’t need to be changed, but you can still benefit from other cosmetic services. Be open with Dr. Desai about what you like and don’t like about your smile, and together you’ll develop a smile design that exceeds your expectations.
