Women's Dental Health: Get a Movie Star Smile (on a Regular Person Budget)
You don't have to spend a ton of money to have a mouthful of beautiful, healthy teeth and a stunning smile -- these 11 tips prove it
With the exception of maybe Johnny Depp and, maybe Nelly, the overwhelming majority of A-listers have dazzling smiles. Why? Plain and simple, nice teeth look good -- on the big screen and off.
And while straight, white teeth are a commodity in Hollywood, it's not a shock that regular folks are clamoring for them too. Men and women's dental health and having a beautiful smile has become all the rage these days. The proof ? Everything from mall kiosks offering "whiter smiles in 30 minutes" to the staggering assortment of brightening/whitening kits, toothpastes and rinses to choose from at your neighborhood drug store point to a supply meeting demands.
But that's the problem -- with so many products vying for our hard-earned dollars and so much conflicting information floating around, it can be too confusing to figure out how to get a pretty, healthy mouthful of teeth!
To help eliminate the guesswork, we talked to two industry standouts. Dr. Michael Apa, a partner in The Rosenthal/ Apa Group on Manhattan’s Upper East Side where he concentrates exclusively on aesthetic and restorative dentistry, and cosmetic dentist Dr. Bill Dorfman who's helped to beautify Jessica Simpson, Eva Longoria and Anne Hathaway's perfect mouths -- and, both shared their tips for getting and maintaining healthy, alluring smiles.
So, if you're ready to razzle and dazzle 'em, let's get going!
