Woman urges celebrities to stop getting veneers

A woman took to social media to condemn celebrities for their obsession with veneers. Someone needs to tell them that their teeth need to look like teeth!

Something that has given me endless joy is teasing my own mother about her veneers. To put it bluntly: they look great. I don’t want to make light of her because a few things went wrong. Actually, I’d like to point out that under her veneers she has tiny teeth like a cat. This is true. My mother’s real teeth were filed down to drill into her gums. She has the mouth of a small creature in a low-budget horror film. It is great!

She recently bit into something hard, causing a veneer to snap off instantly, like a popcorn kernel popping into its final shape. I glanced at the dining table where we were eating together and looked up with relish to see if it was a front tooth. It did. With a sly gleam in my eye, I demanded to see the cat’s tooth. With that in mind, I know how a TikToker feels when she says celebrities have gone too far with their veneers. It’s a shiny, blocky epidemic.

The veneers have gone too far! Does this joke make sense?

Jules coming over (@juulessssssssssssss) on TikTok is fed up with celebrities wearing veneers. By the way, that’s tough talk coming from someone who inexplicably has 14 letter S’s in his TikTok handle, but I digress.

“Someone needs to tell celebrities that veneers don’t look good,” Jules pleads in her car. It should be noted that Jules appears to have very nice teeth. The imperfect teeth she longs for on the big screen don’t stare back at her when she looks in the mirror.

What I find most fascinating about this rant is the fact that, in Jules’ eyes, her presence in the influencer community is an indication that veneers are out of control. Influencers are known to be willing to do anything to get a free trip or product. I doubt they’ll suddenly value their teeth.

Would it surprise anyone to stumble upon a TikTok of an influencer actually filming their own teeth being filed, right down to the stuff you’d normally write off as nightmares? If it got them more followers, of course they would!

Jules’ next argument against veneers is the claim that natural teeth look better. One could make this argument for something as extreme as plastic surgery, right down to makeup. We have already established that we live in a world where nature is not necessarily what people want.

There is something that Jules and I both agree on. Teeth should never be sparkling white. Accordingly Excellent dental care In Pasadena, California, a place where veneers are undoubtedly plentiful, most teeth are reddish-brown in color. This doesn’t mean true reddish brown, but rather a dental version of it.

Jules goes on to say that another problem with veneers is that they run across, creating a straight line. Real teeth come in a variety of sizes that are subtle but overall seem more like a bumpy road.

What Jules would most like to see is the use of veneers exclusively on what she calls “old people.” I think she actually means dentures. Veneers require the presence of teeth. As we age we tend to lose our teeth so this wouldn’t work.

I think Jules struggles with the concept of an uncanny valley. I think she is very put off by the fact that veneers make their owner look artificial, but still quite human. Our brains just can’t handle it. Someone smiling with a full set of veneers looks like a robot. They are not real. I know people say the eyes are the windows to the soul, but I think it’s the mouth. If I can’t read someone’s lips, I don’t go beyond that.
