Thanks to novel technological advancements, dental science has come a long way since the days of fashioning toothbrushes out of bones and boar hair. Some of the most incredible inventions to enter the field in the last several decades fall within the category of cosmetic dental services. Generally, cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental procedure that enhances a patient’s teeth, gums, and overall smile. Since July has been dubbed Cosmetic Dental Month, what better way to celebrate the fascinating evolution of dentistry than to examine some of the most famous cosmetic dental patients throughout history? WASHINGTON’S (NOT) WOODEN TEETH The tall tale of George Washington’s wooden chompers is as enduring as the myth that the young future president chopped down a cherry tree and came clean about his crime. It’s also just as false. According to Live Science, Washington had multiple sets of dentures made of metal alloys, ivory, and even other people’s’ teeth. He was wearing partial dentures in his late 30s, but by the time he was 57, the president had only one tooth left in his mouth. THE TEETH THAT ‘HELPED WIN WWII’ While most people born with a natural speech impediment make efforts to cover it up, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill believed that his lisp was a necessary part of the war effort. During wartime radio broadcasts, Churchill’s voice was immediately recognizable. So, when he commissioned dental technician Derek Cudlipp to create his dentures, he had them designed to preserve his lisp. ‘GONE WITH THE TEETH’ Not many viewers were aware that one of their first Hollywood crushes, Clark Gable, smiled on screen with a full set of dentures. Due to a bad gum infection in 1933, Gable had to have most of his teeth removed. Rumor has it that while filming “Gone with the Wind,” his costar Vivien Leigh often complained about his foul breath, which was probably caused by his dentures. Halitosis aside, the two were apparently good friends. DID YOU KNOW THESE FAMOUS MEN WORE DENTURES? JULY IS COSMETIC DENTAL MONTH!
