Chew On This: Fun Celebrity Dental Facts
From starlets to Hollywood’s leading men, there is one thing we all can agree on—Tinsel Town’s elite flash some great smiles for the cameras. Your Milford family dentistry has some celebrity dental finds that are quite enjoyable. Read below to find some fun dental facts!
Fact #1: Almost Dentist Turned Modern Family’s Breakout Star
Modern Family star, Sofia Vergara, almost became a full-fledged dentist while she was living in Columbia. The actress only needed two more semesters before she could receive her degree, but a TV opportunity pulled her from the dental chair into the spotlight, as a TV host. Now, we can see why her smile is dazzling—she knows the best practices of oral health.
Fact #2: Powerhouse Singers Sport Dental “Grillz”
Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Rihanna—and even Miley Cyrus—are flashing some serious bling. The dental “grillz” trend is back in Hollywood, once again. In the past, Nelly was seen with bedazzled grills on his teeth, but then the trend faded away, only to be put back in the spotlight. Although your teeth will be “flashy,” the “grillz” can potentially irritate the gums and damage enamel of the opposing teeth. We don’t recommend it.
Fact #3: Tyra Banks Boasts 275 Smiles
Do you know how many smiles you can flash? Most people don’t practice smiling or prepare more than two grins. However, Ms. Banks once stated that she had 275 smiles. I guess it makes sense considering she “banked” her career on her model-good looks and smile.
