Was it a Smile Makeover or Harmonious Symmetry for Kate Middleton?

Posted on November 29, 2011 | in Dental Celebrities | by

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.”

What'll it Be, Smile Makeover or Harmonious Symmetry...ask Kate Middleton

That just sounds nice, doesn’t it – harmonious symmetry?
 
“What’ll it be today Mrs. Haversham, harmonious symmetry or porcelain veneers?”
 
We can just hear it now, sit down in our dentists’ chair, and it’s;
 
“What if we could give your smile the harmoniously balanced symmetry of say a Kate Middleton, is that something in which you might be interested?”
 
“We also have the George Hamilton whitening package available, it’s a sharply contrasting treatment regime of around the clock tanning and super enhanced laser teeth whitening designed to make your smile pop and your skin wrinkle…”
 
Aside from having a way with words, the Duchess’ cosmetic dental work was reportedly carried out by Didier Fillion, a London-based dental surgeon.

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!
