north-west thinks Kate Moss has the least attractive celebrity smile
National Smile Month (13 May 2007 to 12 June 2007) and to celebrate, Wisdom
has released some interesting research into the nation’s favourite
smiles. The study reveals that people from the North-West think Kate Winslet has the most attractive smile with 22% of the vote, closely
followed by Cameron Diaz (18%) and Kate Moss lagging behind with
only 1% of the vote.
When it comes to
smiles, 79% of North-West individuals aren’t looking for perfection
but want a good set of well cleaned teeth. As we grow older the
smile is still important: Interestingly 46% of people from the
North-West are more concerned about their teeth rotting than getting
wrinkles (23%) or going grey (7%).
shockingly, some men seem not to care about their smile with 1 in 10
admitting they spend less than 30 seconds a day brushing their
teeth. On the whole, most of the North-West populace (43%) deserve a
pat-on-the-back for spending the recommended 2-5 minutes. Luckily
Brits across the country do also seem to be aware of the importance
of thorough cleaning – with 64% stating that cleaning between teeth
is most important when brushing.
Dr. Mervyn Druian from the London Centre for Cosmetic Dentistry
says:- “It’s great to see that most Scots are spending the
recommended two minutes twice a day cleaning their teeth. However,
we need to make sure that people clean effectively between their
teeth as well. I recommend using a soft filament brush so you don’t
harm your gums and brushing in circular movements. Also floss at
least once a day before brushing.”
