Cosmetic Dentists Say These Are the Most-Requested Celebrity Smiles
By Danielle Fontana, Digital Editor |
Any great cosmetic dentist will tell you that your smile says so much more about you than the last time you whitened your teeth. “A person’s smile can portray beauty, proportion and many other qualities,” says Atlanta cosmetic dentist Ronald E. Golstein, DDS. New York cosmetic dentist Husam Almunajed, DDS says our smile can also say more about our personality than we think. “Depending on how you want to be perceived—strong, dominant, delicate, calm—we can play with the shape of the teeth,” he says.
While Dr. Goldstein says many patients base their request for their new smile based on celebs in their age range, there are a few common requests. Below, celebrities whose smiles hit the most-wanted list.

Kim Kardashian West and Sofia Vergara
Cupertino, CA cosmetic dentist Khalil Saghezchi, DDS says his younger patients often come into their consultations with photos of Kim Kardashian West’s smile. “My older patients tend to ask for a smile similar to that of Sofia Vergara—a very natural, conservative smile,” says Dr. Saghezhi, noting that his patients are veering towards natural veneers as opposed to the “bigger, chunky teeth.”
“More and more, everyone is bringing in Jessica Alba's teeth and want their teeth to look like hers,” says Dr. Almunajed. “I tell them we can use that as a blueprint, and make it work on you, and make your smile a better version of yourself,” he says. Dr. Goldstein agrees: “Over the years, no doubt the most popular celebrity request has been Jessica Alba, who has the most balanced smile to face ratio.”
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Jessica Simpson
Powell, OH cosmetic dentist Neal Patel, DDS says his patients most frequently mention Catherine Zeta-Jones and Jessica Simpson when explaining the type of look they’re after. “I think it’s simply because they are not afraid to smile. There is nothing artificial about their smiles, and they are not limited by any insecurities about the beauty of their teeth. Notice the focus on brightness, symmetry and balance in their smile designs. We have the ability to replicate that for any patient.”
Christie Brinkley and Julia Roberts
Dr. Goldstein explains that a typical request among his older patients is none other than Christie Brinkley, “who, despite her age, still has a beautiful smile to keep her face looking young,” he says. “Another common request in this age group is Julia Roberts, who over the years, still has smile appeal.”
Perhaps the most recognizable smile in Hollywood, Dr. Goldstein says his younger clientele most frequently request a smile similar to Anne Hathaway’s. The reason why? "Her smile is perfectly proportioned to her face, which contributes to the appeal."
