Are you wanting to own the smile that you have and make it work for your fashion sense? Do you wish to learn more about the different dental trends and how they can make a fashion statement?
If so, then you need to learn more about teeth fashion. Doing so will help you gain more confidence and swagger in the smile that you have.
Not all of us have to have straight and perfect teeth. Your smile makes you unique, and you should wear it proudly! See below for an in-depth list of dental trends that are making the loudest fashion statements right now.
- Straight Teeth
This should be prefaced by saying that you don’t have to have straight teeth to have an amazing smile. That’s not the most important aspect of a good and healthy smile.
What’s important about your teeth—from a fashion standpoint—is your confidence with the smile that you have.
That said, having professionally-straightened teeth can give you more confidence than you thought possible. Especially for those of you that have dealt with teeth alignment issues such as an overbite or underbite.
Even if you don’t want perfectly straight teeth, you must find a general dentist to oversee that smile of yours. They can help you maintain the integrity of your current smile with services such as:
- Fluoride treatments
- Crowns and Bridges
- Tooth-Colored Fillings & more
It all starts with a checkup. Make sure that you take out the time to meet with a trusted dentist. Ideally, you want to find one that you can go to for a long time to come. That way, they can oversee the treatment of your smile and help it keep its youthful glow for years to come.
- Gap Teeth
Gap teeth have been in style for a while now. No matter what decade you look at, there was always a noteworthy celebrity (or many) that had a gap tooth and wore it proudly.
To be clear, we’re speaking specifically about those that have gaps between their two front teeth. Many well-known celebrities have different degrees of gaps in their smile such as:
- Michael Strahan
- Elijah Wood
- Robin Williams
- Brigitte Bardot
- Zac Efron
- Chris Martin
- Laurence Fishburn
- Chris Martin (from Coldplay)
- Woody Harrelson
- Elton John
The list goes on and on. These celebrities either have a gap or had a gap at one point in their career.
The most beautiful part of this list is that it shows that a gap-tooth looks great on any gender, race, or age. All it takes is the confidence and ear-to-ear smile to create a laugh that’s contagious to others.
If you’re subconscious about your gap teeth, then you shouldn’t be. Extensive research has shown that your teeth aren’t what makes you attractive to others. People subconsciously look at the triangle of youth as a gauge of whether or not they deem you “attractive”.
However, if you’re suffering a significant toll on your self-confidence due to the gap in your teeth, then consider seeking orthodontal assistance.
- Snaggle Teeth
For those of you that have never heard this term, a snaggle tooth (or snaggle teeth) is when a tooth is significantly in front or behind the rest of your teeth. It can also be twisted.
Believe it or not, there are many celebrities with a snaggletooth/snaggleteeth in their smile. In fact, most of the celebrities on this list below are deemed exceptionally beautiful and are lauded for holding on to their unique smile. This includes stars such as:
- Kiera Knightly
- Avril Lavigne
- Miley Cyrus
- Kirsten Dunst
It goes to show that you don’t need an organized row of upper and lower teeth to be considered handsome or beautiful. That snaggle tooth can be a signature staple in your smile.
As long as your dentist deems that your smile is good for your health and completely functional, there’s no reason to change it if you don’t want to!
- Vampire Teeth
If you’ve always had a fascination with vampire teeth, then today is your lucky day. Not only are vampire teeth a fad in costume design, their a noteworthy dental trend.
You can have your teeth elongated and sharpened by a professional dentist with previous experience in the treatment.
As permanent as it might sound, this treatment is easily reversible. Simply have the same dentist conform your teeth to the new design you want them shaped during the next go-around!
Grillz can either be permanent or temporary. This has been a fashion statement in the dental world for almost two decades now and isn’t going away anytime soon.
If you’re all about showing off your jewelry and making a fashion statement with gold, silver, or diamonds, then Grillz are a perfect way to do that.
Keep in mind that Grillz require an immense amount of cleaning. If you’re committing yourself to either temporary or permanent Grillz, be sure to ask your dentist for specifics on the best cleaning routine for your Grillz to keep that smile happy, shiny, and healthy.
