Meghan Markle's beauty is greatly admired – and has been so ever since her engagement to Prince Harry was announced on in 2017. The 'Meghan Effect' has definitely started; anything the former Suits actress wears becomes an instant sell-out, and beauty addicts are always excited to find out what her favourite lipstick shade is. The 36-year-old has even made the 'messy bun' cool again after she sported the relaxed look on her first public appearance of 2018 Many cosmetic experts have seen a huge rise in treatments from their clients, hoping it will give them the 'Meghan look' and that includes her pearly white smile. HELLO! spoke to Dr Krystyna - a London-based cosmetic and dental surgeon – who explains: "As the royal wedding fast approaches, there’s been an increase in requests from my patients who are looking for a picture perfect smile just like Meghan's."
Meghan has the perfect smile which is "naturally white"
She adds that the American actress has "a symmetrical broad smile which reaches to the buccal corridors [the space between cheeks and teeth] and her teeth are elegantly contoured with feminine curves and even shape. The colour is fresh and naturally white." She adds: "Teeth should not be whiter than the white of your eye!."
Dr Krystyna interestingly adds that there has been a slight decrease in patients requesting a stereotypical ‘Hollywood' smile and veneers are on the decline. More people are making the most of what they've got - and according to Dr Krystyna, there’s been a more “conservative approach" to dentistry. “Straightening with Invisalign or braces, bleaching the teeth to whiten, or bonding the teeth to refine the edges.”
what are the top tips in getting a smile like Meghan's? Dr Krystyna recommends good home oral health care, brushing with an electric tooth brush, flossing, avoiding red wine and coffee which is prone to teeth staining. She also explained that going for regular dentist/hygienist appointments ensures your teeth will be one step in the direction of getting a Meghan-esque smile.
