Cosmetic Dentistry Smile Makeover for Lindsay Lohan
This week in our office, the buzz was all about Lindsey Lohan’s dental transformation! Featured this week in US Weekly and on Starcasm.net, the starlet’s teeth have gone from noticeably stained, uneven and damaged looking to fresh, bright and beautiful!
So what do I think she had done? Based on the condition of her teeth in the earlier photos, it is very likely Lohan received a combination of teeth whitening and dental ceramic crowns to stabilize the damaged teeth and address discoloration. Depending on the level of damage, Lohan’s cosmetic dentist may have utilized custom fitted dental veneers to alter the shape and color of her smile!
Numerous issues can create dental damage like Lindsay’s. Smoking, acid reflux and drug-use all contribute to discoloration and weakened enamel. Tooth grinding, previous dental trauma and old dental work that has deteriorated can result in uneven tooth edges, pointed looking teeth and thinning tooth structure.
Lindsay’s teeth have made the tabloids because of her fame, but in my dental practice in downtown Boston, we see many patients with dental problems similar to Lindsays. Our website section called “Real Stories” and our Before and After cosmetic dentistry book has several examples of smile transformations as glamorous as Lindsay’s!
