Celebrities at the Dentist
Celebrities: they’re just like you and me — except with more money and fame and good looks and Bentleys. But otherwise, they’re just like you and me. They eat, breathe, sleep and even go to the dentist. And thanks to a combination of technological innovation and raging self-importance, many of them have taken to social media to share photos of themselves getting their dental work done. Because as everyone knows, perfect smiles don’t grow on trees.

Despite her pre-visit optimism that she would be getting just a cleaning from her dentist, socialite Kim Kardashian ended up receiving multiple fillings. Her post-visit tweet: “A day at the dentist is never fun! Well unless its with Dr. Kevin Sands! Love you doc but fillings suck #HalfMyFaceIsNumb”.

This might look like a Hollywood makeup job, but as actress Demi Moore later explained, she indeed was missing a tooth. Apparently, she has jaws of steel, and the tooth simply popped out during a particularly hard tooth-clenching session.

No, this isn’t some weird latex glove oral fixation porn shoot; it’s Playboy Playmate and ex-wife of Lorenzo Lamas Shauna Sand at the dentist’s office. What she doesn’t mention is that besides getting her teeth cleaned and bleached, she had the dentist attach six diamond studs to her teeth. Because, well, she’s classy like that.
