Celebrity Chompers

Celebrities and their teeth have been mighty active lately in the gossip columns. So who’s making headlines now? Read on to find out!

A blingy Ben? Say it isn’t so!

Ben's New Golden Grin

The 40-year-old actor flashed a golden grin while having lunch in L.A.’s Brentwood neighborhood on Tuesday.

We’re not sure if this dental addition — two gold caps, placed on a top molar and a lower bicuspid — is the result of medical necessity or a new movie role.

This isn’t Ben’s first encounter with the dentist’s chair during his stint in Tinseltown. For his role in “Armageddon” it was rumored that director Michael Bay asked Affleck to see a cosmetic dentist to perfect his pearly whites. We’ll never know what prompted the change for sure, but one thing is for certain — his new smile is definitely nicer. Even with the strangely-out-of-character gold caps.

Grills n’ Grins

Teeth “grillz” are apparently making yet another fashion comeback, and we’re seeing them everywhere.

Rihanna showed off a pricey-looking, diamond-encrusted grill in London this week.

Diamonds Are Rihanna's Best Friend

Justin Bieber is another celebrity who has jumped on the grill bandwagon. While slightly more…ahem…understated?…than Rihanna’s above, it still appears to be bright enough to potentially be viewed while traveling in outer space.

Justin Bieber's Glorious Grill

As if Justin’s grill wasn’t surprising enough, the fact that former teen sweetheart Miley Cyrus has started wearing one may just take the cake. Even if her grill could almost be called “subtle” in comparison to the others on this page, I’m not sure that daddy Billy Ray is exactly proud of his daughter’s latest fashion statement.

While we don’t make grillz at our dental office, we do perform other, perhaps more traditional, cosmetic procedures. Please give our Ann Arbor dental office a call at 734-677-2156 for more information, or to make an appointment.
