Million Dollar Smile?

Million Dollar Smile?

If only I had a dollar for every time I heard, “I want to have a smile like Tom Cruise!”

For a cosmetic dentist, this is pretty frustrating because Tom’s teeth are actually quite terrible!

"What?" I hear you say. "He has a “Million Dollar Smile!”.

Sure, he has spent thousands of dollars to look as good as he does today. So let’s dissect Tom’s teeth so that you never look at Mr. Cruise the same way again...

Tom Cruise (before)

As you can see in this photo, the Tom Cruise we know has come a long way from the gawky teenager of 1983. There are teeth that have suffered trauma and consequently, have had root canal treatment. The alignment of teeth is also poor.

Tom Cruise (after)

In his teenage years Tom had a premolar extracted on the upper left hand side which resulted in all his teeth moving to the left by approximately 5 mms. This missing premolar is responsible for Tom’s lop sided appearance today. Look at the middle of Tom’s upper central incisors, they are not in alignment with his nose and his eyes. All this was whilst Tom was becoming a world-wide movie star in front of our own eyes. Tom’s orthodontist at the time created a symmetrical alignment of an odd number of teeth, and everyone thought Tom had a beautiful smile.

Since these photos, Tom has had orthodontics, whitening and veneers. Now you know the secret, you will never look at handsome Tom’s smile the same way again.
