Remembering Freddie Mercury’s talent, smile and overbite
A highly accomplished singer, song writer and artist, he was adored by many and remembered by even more.
An article in the Independent made me think about his life and achievements in a different way “The great pretender: Who dares wear Freddie Mercury’s crown?”
It is the anniversary of Freddie Mercury’s death, who quietly passed away on the 24th of November 1991.
Well, they didn’t mean dental crown by that. However, it was a well-known fact how much Freddie hated his teeth.
Very much regretting not having correction at an early age as later on he feared a drastic correction would change his voice character and quality. His famous overbite made him very cautious, hence the trademark mustache.
“I don’t like the way my teeth protrude. Apart from that, I’m perfect.” – Freddie
Overbites are very common and most people were happy living with them, unless they caused functional problems. In the last 6-8 years dental patients became very cautious about the aesthetic side of it, wishing to have a more pleasing appearance.
Dentists in Hungary are experts of overbite correction and most of them would recommend several different ways of fixing it, most often extensive crown work is needed for the best results.
Most overbites are hereditary, but several other things can be the cause. One of the worst effects is TMJ Syndrome causing neck pain, jaw pain, sleeping problems and migraines.
