When you watch celebrities go down the red carpet, it’s easy to think they’ve always had flawless smiles. You might even believe that all their teeth are natural and as healthy as possible! However, the truth is that even famous people need tooth restorations occasionally. In fact, some of the best-known celebrities have gotten artificial teeth over the years. To prove it, here’s a summary of three stars with dental implants from your Frisco dentist.
What are Dental Implants?
Simply put, dental implants are tooth replacements that fuse with your jawbone. They both look and act like natural teeth by relying on titanium posts and porcelain crowns.
Compared to dentures or bridges, implants have many advantages. For one thing, they don’t slip or fall — the prosthetics stay secure thanks to fusing with your jaw. They also restore more of your chewing ability, often to the point of letting you eat tougher foods. Implants can even reverse signs of facial aging in older patients.
Which Celebrities Have Dental Implants?
Some of Hollywood’s biggest names have gotten dental implants over the years. Some more recognizable ones include the following:
By now, pretty much everyone knows who Morgan Freeman is. A veteran actor, his stunning performances in films like ‘The Shawshank Redemption,’ ‘Se7en,’ and others have garnered much praise.
As it turns out, Freeman recently got new teeth to go along with his pitch-perfect voice. In other words, he had his teeth whitened and a gap filled with dental implants!
From his first big break on ‘ER’ to his work in the ‘Ocean’s Trilogy,’ George Clooney is known for his great acting and his perfect smile. Still, his pearly whites weren’t always so perfect. You see, he once needed dental implants to fix damage caused by his frequent teeth grinding. Once he did so, the man built up his reputation for his gorgeous smile!
You likely know 50 Cent — also known as Curtis James Jackson III — as a famous hip-hop and rap artist. Did you know, though, that his great smile partly stems from a prior dental implant surgery? After filling some gaps left by missing teeth, the man now shows off new and gleaming pearly whites.
False teeth aren’t just for the so-called “common folk” — even the rich and famous use them! That said, consider getting dental implants from your Frisco dentist soon.
