With the constant flash of the paparazzi and the endless selfies, having a dazzling white smile is essential for Hollywood stars. And it’s a trend that has crossed the Atlantic and having a “couture smile” is now a firm favourite with the UK crowd.

When we are happy, our natural response is to smile. Smiling and laughing can have a positive effect on well-being and health by reducing stress, which leads to lower heart rate and blood pressure. These simple facial expressions can change the way other people perceive you, this can range from being more attractive to reliable and motivated.
There are several factors which can contribute to having the ‘perfect’ smile, these include size and width of the tooth, the curve, colour and shape of the teeth in the overall width of the mouth.
Dr Giacomo Favero, Favero Dental Clinic and one of London Medical Concierge’s network of medical experts, reveals his secrets of a stunning designer smile ahead of National Smile Month. “Creating a truly couture smile that is bespoke to the individual involves not just artistry by science. You need to have an artistic eye, be well trained and experienced, but also you need to know the golden rules that make a smile truly beautiful.”
Dr Giacomo Favero adds, “If you decide to go forward with surgery to correct your smile, then safety is extremely important. The priority for any dentist is to achieve the best possible results without risking your health or potentially damaging your teeth. Make sure that you find a dentist who has the right qualifications and is on the appropriate specialist register to protect yourself from unwanted results.”
