For too long now, Britons have had a less than favourable reputation when it comes to teeth. Known primarily for our wonky molars, in particular by our American neighbours with their famously pearly whites. However, it appears that the times are a changing with research conducted by OnePoll on 1000 adults revealing that 64% of Britons want celebrity teeth similar to Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole, and are opting to improve their smile with teeth whitening.

Tom Cruise has the teeth that men would most covet, while women are fond Kate Middleton’s smile, research found. Asked which celebrity teeth they would most like to have, 39 per cent of males questioned voted for the handsome actor, putting his pearly whites ahead of reality television supremo Cowell. Taylor Lautner and Justin Bieber surprisingly finished below them both!? Sadly Cary Grant didn’t make the top 5!

The women questioned overwhelmingly voted for smiles sported by The Duchess of Cambridge ahead of singers Beyonce, Dannii Minogue, Cheryl Cole and Britain’s got Talent judges Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon.
