Cosmetic dentist Dr Marc Lowenberg has argued that cosmetic dentistry treatments could help people attain their perfect smile.
He noted, however, that in many cases having imperfect teeth could be the best look for a person, as obviously fake smiles could actually make an individual look worse rather than better.
Dr Lowenberg commented: "Most of the smiles we love are not really perfect – Julia [Roberts], Cameron Diaz, Julianna Margulies, Amanda Peet – they all have imperfect smiles but they are perfect for them."
Elsewhere, Dr Anoop Maini of Aqua Dental Spa recently said more Britons are choosing to undergo cosmetic dentistry treatments than ever before.
He stated staining in particular can be easily treated with an air spray, while teeth whitening treatments could be used to improve the look of teeth that are yellow.
In addition, dental veneers can be useful to restructure a smile if teeth are worn or misshapen.
