The dentist behind new Duchess Kate Middleton’s smile had remained secret up until very recently.
He’s a French doctor, and took a somewhat non-traditional approach to the cosmetic design of celebrity teeth.
“They aren’t absolutely aligned. In the United States they want teeth that are symmetrical, monochromatic, artificial. He did some little micro-rotations on Kate Middleton so that it looks like a natural, healthy smile, but not artificial.”
He goes on to compare the work to the “too perfect” smile of typical American movie stars, including Tom Cruise. This is ironic, being that Tom is infamous for having a centered front tooth, which is extremely noticeable once you know to look for it.
In any case, the theory and technique is interesting and well worth clicking through to read. The doctor avoided dental implants and veneers, instead opting for a serious of tiny rotations, as well as grinding and polishing of each individual tooth.
