Peggers, DDS, likes to read trash magazines like US Weekly to critique celebrity dental work. Therefore, I have garnered quite a comprehensive professional opinion as to who has ill-proportioned veneers, bad plastic surgeons and faces appearing from the nether regions of deep space.
Case in point, Tom Cruise. A mere glimpse at him and you determine that he’s for sure bananas. What’s in a photograph that makes you jump to such conclusions? I mean he didn’t personally try to convert you to Scientology, did he? I’ll give you a hint, his smile is a favorite at dental conventions.
The problem is this – His tooth line is an entire tooth off. The two front teeth should be aligned with the middle of the nose. In Tom’s case, they are skewed one whole tooth to camera right. I don’t know why he doesn’t get this feature fixed. (He’s tried braces but that just hasn’t cut it.) It could help his credibility factor.
Owen Wilson’s broken nose lends itself to his slacker personality. Conversely, Tom’s bad teeth negatively impact his already dicey public persona.
The skinny: fix the tooth line, get more cred. Do it for Suri.
