  • Parents and/or guardians contact information, 
  • Pediatrician's name, address and phone number

Tom Cruise - unique smile

Have you ever taken a really good look at Tom Cruise's smile?  He may be worth Millions, but he has what we call an Asymmetrical Smile due to a Midline discrepancy.  This is why you don't see many frontal shots of Tom Cruise.  No doubt he has learned to compensate over the years for his less than perfect smile.  In addition to being a brilliant actor, unbeknownst to Tom Cruise, he also debuts in many Dental education courses.

See if you can find all the flaws mentioned.

We can't say for sure but it appears he had a tooth removed and the remaining teeth were shifted into their current positioning.  He also has misalignment of the upper gum line as you notice some of his upper teeth sit higher than others, showing more or less gum.  He has overall upper gum unevenness with some areas of his smile showing more gum and less on other areas and an overly thin upper lip.

Tom Cruise may be self conscious of his smile but we would never know.  It certainly hasn't impacted his career negatively and he continues to grace the big screen.  Others of us may not be so lucky.

Before you embark on any cosmetic adjustments to your smile, you want to make sure you have a true advocate in your corner.  At Henderson Mill Dental Care we pride ourselves in listening to your concerns and working with you to come up with the best solution for your health and financial situation.

Call us at 770-496-0496 to schedule your consultation.
