SHE MAY have previously been voted one of the sexiest women in the world, but what most people envy about actress Michelle Keegan is her teeth.

According to Dr Ken Harris, who runs the UK’s top cosmetic dental practice, clients wanting a smile makeover are most likely to want to look like the former Coronation Street actress that any other celebrity.

But following up a close second are the teeth of the Duchess of Cambridge and TV personality, Holly Willoughby.

World-renowned Dr Harris, who runs Riveredge Cosmetic Dentistry in Sunderland, revealed that patients will often turn up with images of their favourite celebrity and want the same look.

“Michelle Keegan is absolutely a firm favourite at the moment,” said Dr Harris, who is recognised globally as a leader in his field.

“People believe she has the perfect look and will often request to look like her.

“We’ve also had patients turn up with pictures of Kate Middleton and Holly Willoughby who seem to be popular too.”

While these might be the top choices, other celebrities have fallen out of favour.

“Going back a while, it used to be Demi Moore and then Cheryl Cole and Abi Clancy but they are certainly not requested very often now,” he said.

Dr Harris warns however about yearning for teeth that aren’t natural looking.

“We would encourage people to create a look which gives them nice teeth and not that look too white or that looks as if they have had massive numbers of cosmetic procedures,” he said.

“There’s no doubt at all that good teeth and a smile makeover can make a huge difference to the way that someone looks and how they feel.

“We will always give them the best advice and create a look which is perfect for them and that they will be happy with.”
