Pamela Anderson decides that Botox isn’t for her anymore

Thu

Former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson has said that she is going to embrace the aging process and take a step back from cosmetic treatments such as Botox and dermal filler injections. The 48-year-old told People magazine that she feels ‘younger all the time’, despite the fact she is nearing fifty, and said that she would have been ‘the last person to try Botox’, although eventually she decided to give it a go.

Pamela told the magazine that she doesn’t care about getting older and decided to stop getting facial injections because she didn’t recognise herself anymore, following years of Botox treatment. When it comes to aging, the actress takes a philosophical view, saying ‘It is what it is.’ After experimenting with the anti-wrinkle treatment, the star admitted that ‘a little bit of maintenance is good’ but said that ‘a healthy attitude’ is more important to her when it comes to being young at heart.

The mother-of-two went on to say that some people ‘go too far’ with their cosmetic treatments and maintains that she is ‘not obsessed’ with the way she looks. As well as keeping a healthy attitude, Pamela added that she is lucky enough to have good genes to fall back on, thanks to her mother, and she’s looking forward to growing old gracefully now.

Scott Disick posts selfie before teeth whitening treatment

Wed

Reality TV regular Scott Disick has been busy partying ever since splitting from the eldest Kardashian, Kourtney, and now it seems like he’s turning to cosmetic treatments to freshen up his appearance after spending one-too-many nights on the town. Disick, 32, who is father to Kourtney’s three children, posted a picture of himself on Instagram holding a whitening tray and smiling broadly.

The picture shows Scott sitting at his desk, while he is holding a teeth whitening device, which appears to have a curing light attached. Home whitening treatments that include a blue curing light are designed to be more effective because the light activates the bleaching components in the whitening gel, in order to get the best results from the product. The reality star captioned the photograph ‘Getting my teeth whitening on.’

His dental improvements come after Scott has spent the last week vacationing in Mexico and then jetting off to Nevada for a personal appearance at a nightclub. Sources are adamant that his hard partying is the reason former partner Kourtney called off their nine year relationship, and Scott has shown no signs of cleaning up his act. On Sunday, the eldest Kardashian sister posted a cryptic tweet supposedly aimed at her ex, which read ‘Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Albert Einstein.’

 

Almost half of adults admit to not brushing their teeth before bed

Tue

According to new research carried out with 10,000 volunteers, almost half of adults don’t bother to brush their teeth in the evening, with most giving the excuses that they are too tired before bed or simply forgetful when it comes to their dental hygiene. 45% of those asked admitted that they have gone to bed without brushing their teeth; 40% said it was because they were too tired, 30% cited laziness as the reason, with 28% saying they were just forgetful. Despite this, 91% said they knew that poor oral care could lead to decay and gum disease.

The survey, commissioned by GSK for the Love Your Mouth campaign, reveals that thousands of people are at risk of dental problems. A London dental practitioner spoke to MailOnline about the problem, stating that people don’t think missing out on brushing in the evening is a big problem but gradually this neglect of dental hygiene builds up, causing a host of dental conditions. Natty Burgess said ‘you only need to spend around four minutes brushing, and a couple of extra minutes per day flossing to avoid having problems.’

Only 24% of the people who took part in the study said that they flossed regularly, and 44% admitted that their dental hygiene could be improved. A massive 67% of respondents said they had developed tooth decay at some point in their lives and 29% said that they had six or more fillings. Dr Burgess added ‘Your teeth are the first thing people look at when you start to speak, and first impressions count for a lot… So it’s vital to look after your oral health and give your mouth some love.’

Jimmy Fallon chips his tooth in a fall at home

Mon

Host of the ‘Tonight Show’ Jimmy Fallon has a had an unlucky few months after falling at home and almost losing a finger in June, and now the 40-year-old has recently posted a picture of himself in the dentist’s chair after the first injury lead to him chipping a tooth. Jimmy was trying to open a tube of repair gel to place on a scar following surgery to repair his finger and managed to chip his tooth.

The TV host was involved in a freak accident where he almost lost a finger due to his wedding ring catching on a counter top, almost pulling his finger off. He had to undergo a six-hour operation to repair the damage and was trying to apply some gel to reduce scarring when he somehow managed to chip his front tooth. Jimmy posted a picture of himself on Instagram sitting in the dentist’s chair, with the caption ‘Chipped front tooth trying to open tube of scar tissue repair gel for recovering finger injury. Adding ‘Thank you Dr. Jobe DDS! #Bestsummerever.’

There was no need for the presenter to take time off with this injury though, following ten days in ICU to recover from his damaged finger, and he was clear that he would be returning to the scheduled show, saying ‘Brand new Tonight Show tonight!’

Australia’s Bachelor sparks rumours of Botox injections

Fri

Dashing star of The Bachelor Australia, Tim Robards, appears to have been dabbling in cosmetic surgery as the 31-year-old was seen at recent red carpet events looking smooth and wrinkle free, despite his age. Tim, who is a chiropractor, arrived at the Men of Style event in Sydney last week looking smart in a grey and white suit and fans were quick to point out that his new complexion didn’t seem to match some of the pictures he put on Instagram just weeks ago.

Rumours began that Tim has decided to get rid of wrinkles using either Botox or dermal fillers – especially since he was pictured last year attending an even hosted by Dermaquest, a company that specialises in skincare and anti-aging treatments. His girlfriend Anna is actually an official ambassador for the company, which is currently working with plant stem cell technology to halt the signs of aging.

A statement released by the company said that they were looking forward to The Bachelor finale and were happy to have the previous year’s Bachelor with them to learn about the latest anti-aging techniques, adding ‘He’s got to keep up appearances after all!’

Fans question whether Nicole Kidman is encouraging her husband to get Botox treatment

Thu

She’s always been a fan of Botox injections and now actress Nicole Kidman has fans wondering whether her husband Keith Urban is now joining in with her cosmetic treatment; some are even worried that the Australian has taken it too far. An insider has spoken to OK! Magazine about the rumours and added that Keith may have had fillers as well as Botox treatment in order to fight wrinkles and lines.

The source said that the country singer has ‘started feeling his years’ and has decided to get dermal fillers to retain ‘that baby face his female fans love.’

Nicole told Italian newspaper La Republica in 2013 that she had tried Botox before but ‘got out of it’ in order to retain some facial expressions, however, the mother-of-four appears to have changed her mind and gone back to the anti-aging treatment.

According to the insider, friends of the couple are worried that they are overdoing the injections and may be getting addicted to cosmetic work. The source told the magazine that ‘it’s too awkward’ to broach the subject with the couple, even though those around them are worried that they may have overused the anti-aging treatment to try and maintain a permanently youthful appearance.

Adding fluoride to water could save the NHS millions of pounds

Wed

New research has suggested that adding fluoride to drinking water could save the NHS millions of pounds that is currently being spent on dental treatment, as well as improving the health of the nations teeth. In areas of the country where the mineral was added to the water, the number of people admitted to the dentist for a tooth extraction halved in comparison to areas without untreated water.

The latest study, which has been published in the Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology, found that there were no adverse effects on children’s health, despite the supposed risks – which include brain impairment, liver and kidney disease, and bone disorders. Dr Nigel Carter, chief executive of the British Dental Health Foundation said that fluoridation is vital in the fight against decay which is currently ravaging the teeth of children in the UK. He said that ‘this new research reinforces what we have known for a long time regarding the benefits that fluoride can have on children’s teeth, while also emphasising the fact that fluoridation has no negative impact on general health.’

Dental health problems are known to be prevalent in areas of deprivation and the authors of the study have suggested that adding fluoride to the water could help children who are ‘less likely to practice good oral hygiene and access dental services for routine care.’

The NHS currently spends £30million on dental care for children, mainly extractions of rotten teeth; fluoridation could reduce decay, strengthen the teeth and make them more resistant to bacteria, saving healthcare providers millions of pounds in treatment.

Teenagers are risking their teeth as they try out new ‘gap band’ trend

Tue

Orthodontic treatment can be a lengthy process and some teenagers just aren’t prepared to wait for their tooth gaps to be closed up using normal methods; lots of teens are risking tooth loss by trying out the new ‘gap band’ trend, which involves placing elastic bands around the teeth to pull them together and close up gaps. However, dentists are warning that anyone trying this is more likely to lose their teeth rather than get the perfect smile.

Numerous teens have posted videos of themselves starting the practice, according to The Metro, and some even claim that their tooth gaps were closed up in just a few weeks, compared to months or years it could take with conventional orthodontic treatment. Due to the price of dental care in the USA, this is becoming a popular trend across the pond, despite the risks of bone loss, root damage, and perhaps even tooth loss later on.

According to Juan Rendon, a Texas-based dentist who spoke to US website Refinery29, this practice could initially seem attractive as an alternative to expensive orthodontic treatment, but could ultimately leave the teeth in a very bad state. He said ‘when you move a tooth, the colour of the tooth might change because you are damaging the blood supply. You’re also going to have problems with your gums.’ If the gums are put under pressure this can cut off the blood supply and this can lead to inflammation, followed by infection and possibly tooth loss.

Study shows that adding milk to tea can stop dental stains

Mon

According to new research, adding milk to tea can be as effective as whitening toothpastes when it comes to fighting off stains, and could actually be as good as some bleaching products. According to Dr Ava Chow, of the University of Alberta’s School of Dentistry, the addition of milk to tea – which would normally cause teeth to become stained – could reduce enamel stains and help teeth to stay whiter.

Dr Chow explained that the tannins in tea – water soluble compounds – is what causes the staining, but that the main protein found in milk can bind the tannins to stop stains from developing. The study was initially supposed to be used to introduce undergraduate dental hygiene students to research techniques but Dr Chow was surprised by the results and felt that they were significant enough to warrant publication in the Journal of Dental Hygiene.

Using human teeth that had been extracted, the study involved placing the teeth in a solution of tea on its own or tea with milk, with the results being recorded after twenty-four hours. Dr Chow said that ‘The results we found showed that casein is the component of milk that is responsible for the reduction in tea-induced staining. The magnitude of the colour change observed in our experiments is comparable to the colour change seen by vital bleaching products and more effective than whitening toothpastes.’

Paris Hilton says her skin is ‘too perfect’ for Botox

Fri

Reality star Paris Hilton has revealed in an interview that she has never had cosmetic surgery and was even turned away by a surgeon because her skin was not wrinkled enough to have Botox treatment. The heiress told New You that a lot of people assume they know her from what they have seen on television but viewers don’t know the ‘real’ Paris Hilton.

In the revealing interview, Paris, 34, said that people associate her with the person that they saw on television ten years ago in The Simple Life, but she insists that ‘that was just a character’ she played, rather than her real persona. She also said that she has never had plastic surgery done, despite the rumours, adding ‘I’ve never done anything in my life. People love making things up, but I am lucky that I have listened to my mom through my young age. She told me to stay away from the sun, so my friends would be frying in the sun every day and now they all look much older and all have Botox.’

Continuing, the reality star said that she asked her dermatologist if she could try the anti-aging treatment but he refused, telling her ‘your skin is perfect, I will not do it to you until you need it and I don’t know if you ever will.’ The heiress added that she was ‘happy’ to hear that and she has become accustomed to people having plastic surgery in Hollywood but she ‘never wanted to do it.’

In addition to his excellent dentistry knowledge and professional manner Dr Esfahani is a genuinely nice person who is very welcoming, relaxing and a pleasure to have as my dentist. I should also thank Dr Esfahani's assistant and the gentleman on the front desk (Wednesday nights) who are both incredibly polite and helpful during every visit to the practice.
