With so many people looking up to the celebrities, there are more tips, tricks and tutorials for everything we can do to look just like them. Whether it’s the way they style their hair, put their makeup on or dress themselves, we’ve all tried to copy some part of their lifestyles at some point. Still, while style and looks can vary greatly, there’s one thing that all celebrities have in common: perfect, pearly white teeth. However, even with the best possible genetics, those perfect Hollywood teeth just don’t come naturally. So, let’s see what are the celebrities doing to get the Hollywood smile.

Good habits

Even if you have an army of dentists, it won’t be worth anything without good oral health habits. Every day, you should brush your teeth at least two times, once in the morning and once in the evening, but if you want to make sure you’ve got the perfect smile, you should brush your teeth after every meal. Make sure you are brushing them properly, and floss afterwards. The food we eat sticks to our teeth, and as it starts to break down, it releases bacteria that attack our teeth and causes them to rot. The worst thing you can eat is sugar, because it turns into acid when it starts to break down, and it damages your teeth faster. So make sure you are careful with what you eat and that you are maintaining healthy habits.

Bite the bullet

Sometimes, there’s just no way we can get our teeth to look and perform as good as they once did. If this is the case, if your teeth are weak, or perhaps missing, you need to talk to your dentist about the possibility of getting dentures. You might not like the idea of it, but there are new technologies that make it so easy. The new all on 4 dental implants are a full set of dentures that can be placed on just four teeth. They are there to stay, and you don’t take them out like regular dentures. Also, they can do everything your natural teeth did and they look great doing it. Ask your dentist about this option, if you see that your teeth aren’t holding up. And if you want to reshape your teeth, you have the option of porcelain veneers.

Bright and shining

The one thing that all teeth have in common is that they should be white. But naturally, teeth aren’t as pearly white as you see them on the celebrities. Even when the retouching is removed, their teeth are still whiter than usual. This is because celebrities use artificial whiteners to keep their teeth bright. You can do a treatment at your dentist that will bring out the whiteness, or you can get an at-home kit that you use once every few weeks. There are also whitening strips that you can use almost every day, but make sure you don’t overwork and damage your teeth with the chemicals. If you don’t feel like splurging on different treatments, try a DIY option. Mix a tablespoon of baking soda with some lemon juice and brush your teeth with that, let it sit for a while and then rinse it out. It doesn’t have the best taste, but it will brighten up your teeth if used regularly.

But of course, the smile is more than just how white your teeth are. Smile with your whole face, and smile honestly. If you feel insecure, just remember: a pleasant breath and kind smile is enough to make people pay attention to your words rather than to the whiteness of your teeth.
