Best celebrity smiles are revealed


Last year it was Cheryl Cole who had the nation’s favourite smile, but the Geordie has been usurped by singer Tulisa Contostavlos, who also took her place on the X-Factor panel as a judge. A survey carried out by the Harley Street Clinic revealed that Tulisa’s teeth are top of the list when it comes to the UK’s ideal smile. Tulisa spent thousands making sure her teeth were perfectly straight and white before she made her X-Factor debut last series, and it seems the improvement hasn’t gone unnoticed among viewers. Third place was taken by Kate Middleton, while her sister Pippa found herself down in tenth, and Coronation Street’s Michelle Keegan also managed to make the top ten.

Olympic diver Tom Daley topped the list for the men, with his pearly whites beating away rivals David Beckham and TOWIE’s Mark Wright. Russell Brand also made a surprise appearance on the list, as his teeth have been whitened since he moved to the US. The Royal family were found to be popular with men too, with Prince Harry coming in at the number eight spot – just behind rapper Prof. Green, who has spent a reported £12,000 on a complete smile makeover.

The obvious ‘Hollywood smile’ has fallen in popularity slightly this year, as the blinding white teeth of Nicola Roberts, Chloe Sims, and Simon Cowell failed to make the top ten; most people who were asked felt their teeth were too large and too bright to look natural.

Essex dentist mingles with Olympic stars


Chelmsford dentist Catherine Holmes was part of the 25-strong polyclinic team that worked during the Olympic Games to keep athletes in perfect oral health, and she managed to get a few photographs with her famous clients to remember the experience. Catherine, of Holmes Dental Practice, told the press ‘Although I am unable to break patient confidentiality by naming who I cared for, I was privileged to treat a number who became household names.’

It seems that even the best athletes in the world still need a lesson in oral hygiene though, as Catherine commented that ‘even those with ready access to brushes, paste, and running water needed our specialist care.’ Dr Holmes and her nurse Sharon Cambridge worked at the Olympic village for ten days during the Games and they were supported by doctors, massage therapists, and a whole medical team; ‘We ourselves must have dealt with hundreds of patients a day, it was surprisingly busy with everything from toothache and mouth guards to wisdom teeth extractions.’

Catherine, 51, also managed to get a photograph with the man of the moment, Usain Bolt, as well as Team GB heroes Tom Daley, who took bronze in the diving, gold medal winning rower Andrew Triggs-Hodge, and Olympic cycling champion Jessica Trott. ‘[they] were all glad to pose next to me,’ Catherine explained, ‘[and were] grateful to all the volunteers like myself.’
