According to recent reports from across the pond, Kate Middleton underwent some cutting edge cosmetic dentistry to shape up her sassy royal smile.
It has widely been clamored about in the tabloids from Beverley Hills to Buckingham Palace, how the Duchess of Cambridge discreetly managed to tweak her smile without having exposed the dentist responsible for the glimmering teeth transformation.
But instead of opting for the total white bright anchor-person chicklet smile, the Duchess favored a more realistic and natural approach.
Supposedly, the Queen-to-be in question owes all the credit to a French dentist who specializes in an area of cosmetic dentistry he coins, “harmonious symmetry.”
According to the article on CalgaryHerald.com, his close friend and colleague Bernard Touati has said Dr. Fillion’s work on the Duchess involved “micro-rotations” of her teeth to create an improved, but still natural look.
Touati said: “They aren’t absolutely aligned. In the United States, they want teeth that are symmetrical, monochromatic, artificial.
“He (Fillion) did some little micro-rotations on Kate Middleton so that it looks like a natural, healthy smile, but not artificial.”
We’re guessing the dentist’s friend is helping get the word out on harmonious symmetry, as Dr. Fillion is probably restricted by patient confidentiality. But who knows, we’re not solicitors, or attorneys either for that matter.
There are plenty of options available to us as dental patients when it comes to teeth whitening, cosmetic dentistry, or complete full mouth reconstruction. And we don’t have to sell the royal jewels to shape up our smiles, as procedures vary so do costs.
Our best bet is to talk to our dentists, ask them what’s best for us, how we can pay for an affordable smile solution, and how drastic the effects may be, and together reach a workable cosmetic smile improvement regimen!
So which side of the cosmetic dentistry debate do you favor?
Will it be harmonious symmetry of balanced imperfection, or the clean sleek lines of a traditionally American cosmetic smile makeover?
Are we still talking about dentistry..
