Why Are Celebs Obsessed With Dental Veneers?

A perfect mouth full of gleaming teeth.


Celebrity culture is full of beauty obsessions. Go down the Tik Tok rabbit hole and you’ll find all kinds of new trends that famous influencers and celebs are obsessed with. One of the latest obsessions is buccal fat removal; a strange way to give yourself a slimmer face. However, there’s one obsession that’s been around for years and doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. 

Have you noticed that - in the past few years - every celebrity seems to have perfect teeth? Even reality TV celebs or influencers that find fame suddenly get bright white perfect teeth overnight. How does this happen? Where are these teeth coming from? 

If you didn’t already know, they’re called dental veneers. Effectively, they are fake teeth…in a way. Veneers are usually made from porcelain and designed to slide over your teeth to hide imperfections. The result is a perfect mouth full of gleaming teeth. They’re pretty damn expensive - and you’re basically just covering up your teeth - so, why are celebs so obsessed? 

A guaranteed perfect smile

We aren’t all born with perfect teeth and if you’re a celebrity, your smile will be on show more than most. Celebs and influencers will constantly have photos taken - either by themselves for Instagram, or by the paparazzi. If there are issues with their smile, like yellow or misshapen teeth, everyone will notice. The tabloids will have an absolute field day pointing these imperfections out, which is why veneers are so popular. 

They pretty much give you a guaranteed set of perfect teeth without the need for any complicated surgery. Once in place, the veneers look gorgeous and improve your smile in every photo. When you think about it like this, it’s no surprise celebs are going crazy over them. 

More stylish than the alternatives

If you don’t have very nice teeth, what options are at your disposal? You could get braces or aligners to straighten them, but this hardly looks nice. Or, you could undergo major reconstructive work and get dentures to replace any bad teeth. Needless to say, celebs are hardly going to opt for this option - it’s not exactly stylish to have a removable set of false teeth. 

Veneers are simply more stylish. Nobody can tell that you have them as they look so natural, and you don’t have to worry about removing them. It’s pretty much the perfect solution for any celebrities that want to fix their smile. 

A big confidence boost

More than anything, most celebs get veneers to feel more confident. Having a smile full of pearly white teeth makes you feel better about yourself. In the celebrity world, image is everything. If you don’t look your best, you don’t feel your best. If you asked most celebs or influencers why they go veneers, they’d probably tell you it was to look good and feel good. 

Despite being such a popular trend, you don’t have to copy celebrities for a nice smile. Simply take care of your teeth or get braces if you need them. After all, veneers merely cover up your teeth, so you never actually address any problems. Don’t get sucked into thinking you need to splash the cash on expensive dental veneers just to feel good when you smile!
