Hollywood Smile: The New Social Status Marker

A shiny, beautiful smile has long been considered an asset, but recently it appears to have become something more. The dentists in our Harley Street and Hertfordshire clinics offer a smile makeover. Click here to see our gallery.

These days everyone is after the celebrity look. You only have to see a celebrity wear something new and suddenly it’s on the hot ‘must-have’ item list. Well, one thing that most celebrities have definitely reached out for is a new improved smile. It is the absolute celebrity ‘must-have’.

However, according to social scientist Malcolm Gladwell, the state of an individuals’ teeth is swiftly becoming a tell-tale sign of social status – in much the same way as education or upbringing dictates social standing. See: Treatment Fees.

Speaking to the Times, Gladwell explained that as signs of inequality linked to gender and race lose their significance in modern society, others emerge to drive social mobility – obesity and bad teeth.

He claims that people with crooked, chipped or stained teeth may miss out on high-level jobs if other factors between candidates are the same.

What have studies shown us about oral hygiene?

Gladwell’s claims appear to be supported by recent findings released by the Health and Social Care Information Centre. In 2011, 20% of hospital admissions for dental treatment were made up of patients from the most deprived 10% of the population.

In addition, statistics also reveal that young patients aged up to 29 are three times more likely to undergo dental treatment than people over 60, whose teeth typically require more care. See: General Dentistry.

According to a new poll from marketing research company ICM, good health is one of the key factors that make Britons happy.

Yet despite knowing how crucial good health is, many ignore taking the best care of their oral health.

A further 27% only thought about their oral health occasionally, the poll revealed.


Research states that a great smile can have a tremendous effect on our well being and self-confidence.

This is especially true of those that are constantly in the media attention like celebrities.

However, The Perfect Smile Studios has been looking into some celebrities that seem to carry-off the discrepancies in their smiles famously.
