When people meet you, they evaluate your smile. According to a group of dental experts quoted on the Daily Mail UK, each kind of smile tends to indicate something about the individual’s personality. Find out what your smile says about you!
The Gummy Smile
If you have an open smile that’s a little gummy, like Beyonce’s smile, you look more innocent and trustworthy to people. When they were younger, Gwen Stefani, Nicole Kidman, and Katie Couric all sported grins that showed an extra bit of gum.
Jennifer Garner used to have a gummy smile, but today her lips cover more of her gums. If you’re interested in changing the amount of gum that shows when you smile, consult with your dentist in Singapore and find out what the options may be. Thanks to laser technology that allows for gum reshaping and recontouring, you don’t have to live with excessive gingival exposure.
The Sharp-Toothed Smile
Kate Moss’s teeth are beautiful, but her eyeteeth or canine teeth are a little longer and more pointy than average. This slightly “fangy” look makes her appear more fierce and dominant. Ricky Gervais has similarly pointy teeth; for the comedic actor, this look plays into his overall persona.
In some cases, the teeth may look a little too pointy. Avril Lavigne felt that her fang-like incisors made he look too much like a vampire. In 2008, when she was 31, the singer had her teeth shaved down a bit to reduce that appearance. If your eyeteeth are bothering you because of their overly pointy look, talk to your Singapore dentist about options for reducing them a bit.
The Gap-Toothed Smile
A small gap between the two front teeth can look sensual. Think Vanessa Paradis, Anna Paquin, Lauren Hutton, actor Michael Strahan, and Madonna. Dutch supermodel Lara Stone also sports a sexy gap between her two front teeth. Even the beautiful French model and actress Brigitte Bardot, whose career peaked during the fifties and sixties, had an adorably sensual gap between her front teeth. In nations like Nigeria, Namibia, and Ghana, a gap like this is actually considered a sign of fertility.
Of course, if the gap is too dramatic, it can be distracting and off-putting rather than attractive. Young actor Zac Efron used to have a gap, but he had work done to close it. If you’re afraid that your gap is too large, go to your dentist in Singapore and ask about some options for treatment. In some cases, your dentist can use porcelain veneers or some other type of veneer to close the gap. For a more longterm solution that doesn’t involve veneers, your dentist may recommend you to use Invisalign in Singapore.
The Wide Grin
Big, beautiful smiles like Julia Roberts’ smile can give other people the impression that you are happy, wealthy, and successful. Anne Hathaway, Angelina Jolie, Holly Willoughby, Cameron Diaz, and Mila Kunis all have stunning smiles that seem to reach from ear to ear. Former American President Barack Obama had a broad, winning smile, and actors Christian Bale, Taye Diggs, the late Heath Ledger, and the late Paul Waller sported gleaming, wide grins as well.
