It is hard to believe, but celebrities were not always born with those dazzling smiles they flash at the cameras.
When Zac Efron began his career as an actor, his smile was tainted with a wide diastema, or gap between the two front teeth. It was not until he went to get orthodontic work that he acquired the straight, snow-white smile that is seen today.
What Are Orthodontics?
Orthodontics are not just a basic cleaning at the dentists office. It is a higher medical dentistry field that involves several procedures for teeth repairing operations. A diastema, for example, requires professional skills. There are three ways to perform diastemas. The first is repairing the gap by applying traditional metal braces to the teeth. This treatment can take up to three years. There are also Invisalign Tips, which are basically Invisible Braces that will correct the gap. Then there is “the Zac Efron way.”
How Did He Do It?
Zac Efron was never seen wearing braces before his gap disappeared. In order to not have silver stones covering his celebrity style, he went the way of porcelain veneers. When an orthodontist applies the eggshell-thin veneers to a patient’s teeth, they are then fused to the underlying tooth structure. These veneers reestablish the look of straight teeth and close the gap’s appearance. Veneers can also be used to improve the whiteness of teeth as well, which explains the heart-melting white beams that shine from Zac’s pearly whites.
Zac Efron is not the only one who can obtain a gorgeous smile. King Orthodonics is just s step away with professional facilities. There is a reason that Zac’s smile looks so good. Teeth treatments can be expensive but it is important to choose a certified orthodontist to do the job.
Do not live with open door frames in between the front teeth, no one is visiting and no one is going out. So, shut the door and begin again with a glorious new smile that will put Efron to shame.
