New Jersey Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Thomas Streko, Discusses Advantages of Having a “Celebrity Smile”

Dr. Thomas Streko, D.M.D., New Jersey cosmetic dentist, recently wrote about Julia Roberts and the benefits of having a great smile.

Westfield, NJ. – January 13, 2011 – One of New Jersey’s leading cosmetic dentists, Dr. Thomas Streko, recently published a blog on his website, titled “Just How Much Is A Celebrity Smile Worth?” In the blog, Dr. Streko talks about Julia Roberts’ latest commercial for Italian television, and how her famous smile helped bolster the term “million-dollar smile.”

Dr. Streko writes, “You’ve probably heard the expression “million-dollar smile” when it comes to describing celebrities and their teeth.  Well, Julia Roberts’ famous grin is now worth even more – she’s raised the bar by 50% to a cool 1.5 million.  That’s how much the actress was paid for a new coffee commercial she shot for Italian television.  And she didn’t even have to speak a single word during the 45 seconds she spent on camera.  Ms. Roberts let those famous teeth do the talking…and is now smiling all the way to the bank.”

Dr. Streko explains that everyone can benefit from having a great smile.  “Having a set of gleaming, star-quality teeth can do wonders for anyone’s bottom line.  One of the benefits of having a great smile is that fact that you tend to use it more.  And people who smile appear more confident, happier, more likeable, more approachable, friendlier, you name it,” wrote Dr. Streko.

“So while a celebrity-style smile makeover may not net you a 1.5 million dollar paycheck, chances are it could pay off for you over time – in terms of more confidence, more happiness, and maybe even more financial success.  Which could have you, like Julia Roberts, smiling all the way to the bank,” concludes Dr. Streko.
