Mike Ditka May Have Bad Teeth

Former Chicago Bears Coach Mike Ditka is apparently the spokesman for ClearChoice Dental Implant Center. I like the Aliquippa, Pennsylvania native and University of Pittsburgh great, so I’m happy that he picked up an endorsement deal. However, I’m confused by the pictures on this advertisement.



If I understand this correctly, Ditka received dental implants from a company other than ClearChoice, and the entire process took three years. Meanwhile, at ClearChoice, you can get implants and new teeth in only one day. Maybe Ditka is not pleased with his teeth. His treatment took three years, yet he’s afraid to smile in the “after” picture.



Maybe his new teeth doesn’t look good, and ClearChoice doesn’t want him to smile and have people associate the teeth with the company. Conversely, perhaps Ditka does have nice teeth now, but ClearChoice doesn’t want him to smile while standing in front of their logo since they didn't do the work.

Maybe I’m just reading too much into this. However, what's the point of having before and after pictures for a dental company without seeing any teeth? At least you can see Ditka's teeth in this video:



This may or may not be related, but do you know anyone who endorses both teeth and cigars? Yes, Ditka has his own cigar!

He could have smile on that print ad to show his pearl white teeth. Anyway, isn't it great? I do find it ironic that he endorses both a dental clinic and a cigar brand. But come to think of it? He is just being a responsible man, taking good care of his teeth. Cigar smoking is not bad if not too much. My grandpa smoke Cigar but not often because he said it is bad for the health and teeth. He knows how to control his bad vices and he does go to his Bartlett dentists regularly. Bartlett TN, dentists had been taking care of his teeth for a long time that is why he still has that George Clooney smile.
