Celebrity Makeovers Volume 2

Emily Blunt is one of my favorite actresses. I loved her in the Devil Wears Prada and the Adjustment Bureau and more recently in the Girl on the Train. So I can’t but help notice her amazing transformation since debuting next to Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway in 2006.


Here you can see her teeth are very square, she has a thin upper lip and longer philtrum. I tried to find pictures of her teeth from the Devil Wears Prada, but there were no photos at all because lips at rest, talking and smiling she never showed her teeth.

More recently you can see she shows a lot more teeth…….


It is very obvious she has had 6 veneers done in the front which have been made longer and whiter than the rest of the teeth. While she is still stunning this is a very unnatural look for a multitude of reasons:

  1. The 6 front teeth are whiter, bigger and longer than the rest of her teeth

  2. The outline of her 6 front teeth is very closed off, or as I like to say the embrasures are more closed, leaving less room for the darkness from the back of the mouth to shine through. This does not match her existing teeth which you can see on the sides which have much more open embrasures.

  3. The veneers do not have any depth to them and seem very ‘fake’ looking. Porcelain veneers that are layered and have translucency would have been a much better look for her.


If I had the opportunity to improve Emily’s smile I would have broadened her buccal corridors (side teeth) and opened her bite (increased the vertical dimension of her back teeth) with either Invisalign or prep-less veneers depending on her time constraints. I then would have used a more natural looking porcelain and create a more feminine set up with open embrasures to create more balance and beauty to her face.
