Celebrity Cosmetic Dentist Michael Kosdon Finds Star-Power in Smiles at the Emmys

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Megawatt smiles were glowing on the red carpet and onstage at the glamorous 60th anniversary Emmy Awards in Hollywood, led by dazzling Mariska Hargity (Law & Order) host Heidi Klum (Project Runway), Olivia Wilde (House), Christina Applegate (Samantha Who), Lauren Velez and Julie Benz (Dexter) and January Jones (Mad Men), but some stars unnecessarily lost their edge smile-wise, reports Hollywood celebrity dentist Michael Kosdon.

Dr. Kosdon, who regularly transforms ordinary smiles into extraordinary ones, scored this gala Emmy's stars high marks, especially the cast of Desperate Housewives, but noted the unnecessarily low-wattage on smiles flashed by Zeljko Ivanek, who won supporting actor for Damages, Brooke Shields (Lipstick Jungle) and Kate Flannery (The Office).

"We're in a media-savvy society and many actors have had cosmetic work done," notes Kosdon. "But still there are problems that show up on the Red Carpet, for instance when veneers are too big. More often it's simply that the stars haven't learned to flash a big smile and show them off!" Kosdon noted further that while there's no difference today between coverage of film and television stars on the red carpet, the film stars seem to intuitively know how to flash that smile broadly for their fans.

He thinks that explains the long list of tight-lipped smiles from stars who should know better, from Sex in the City's Cynthia Nixon to American Idol's host Ryan Seacrest. Others stingy about showing off their pearly whites included Tony Shalhoub (Monk), Gabriel Byrne (In Treatment), Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) and comedian/talk show host Bill Maher.

Dr. Kosdon's trained eye noted that Tina Fey got off to a slow start with a closed-mouth walk on the red carpet, but by the end of the evening, after racking up awards for writing, lead actress and best comedy series for 30 Rock, she was radiant and her glorious smile was on show.

The confidence of Vanessa Williams was constantly reflected in her high- voltage smile, which stole the show when she was on camera. On the other hand, beautiful music emitted from Josh Groban's mouth, but his teeth were not as applause-worthy. And when you looked at the line-up of reality hosts at the beginning of the show, Klum easily blew away her male co-hosts with the biggest smile.

Dr. Kosdon, who recently polished up the irresistible smiles of Aaron Carter, Jason Priestly, Brandy Moses, Landon Brown and Adam Gregory (see is at the forefront of a new breed of visionary dentists dedicated to delivering the most advanced knowledge and treatments in an atmosphere designed to put patients in a calm and stress-free mood. Within his state-of-the-art office guests not only receive the highest quality dental care, they're treated to a variety of five-star services, from warm towels to massage therapy, from a fully stocked beverage bar to flat screen TVs.
