On May 20, 2008 Gwyneth Paltrow’s mother, Blythe Danner, spoke at my NYU College of Dentistry graduation. Her speech and message was one of the highlights of the day. Her late husband, Gwyneth’s father, Bruce had succumbed to oral cancer. Blythe Danner’s message was to graduating dentists, ‘To meticulously screen every patient for oral cancer. It could save and/or prolong a life.’
Fast forward 12 years later. My publication LA Smile Magazine is finally in print. The premise of the magazine is to profile ‘Celebrities with Genuinely Lovely Smiles.’ The aesthetics is about harmony in nature. It’s not perfect teeth or teeth that standout to draw attention to the figure. Only if teeth need to be realigned or improved to further accentuate the facial symmetry.
The ideal smile radiates ones beauty even further. One such smile belongs to Gwyneth Paltrow. The quintessential smile is one that is harmonious, accentuates the beauty of the face and is genuine.
Gwyneth Paltrow radiates and permeates the aforementioned qualities – especially with her smile. She was as cast Iron Man’s significant other and confidante. Due to her trustworthiness. That is the genuine aspect of the smile. Her smile is also one that could be emulated by ceramists. Ideally if a patient has a similar smile line.
Gwyneth Paltrow should be the face of Colgate.
Due to these attributes Gwyneth Paltrow should be and could be the face of a multitude of dental companies and products. Significantly, Colgate.
Gwyneth exudes a wholesomeness that is rare to mimic. To sell a smile that one wants to have for their daughter Gwyneth’s association to a Colgate Swish mouthrinse for example, would make the consumer jump to it in the dental aisle. Especially with her smile plastered all over the dental aisles, billboards, bus stops and busses. Gwyneth Paltrow smiling, holding the best of Colgate.
