Roberto Firmino’s dentist has revealed that the Liverpool forward requested “super-white” teeth, also referred to as the “Bobby Dazzler” shade.
Dr. Robbie Hughes, a dentist in Liverpool FC, has since described in detail how Firmino requested that the dentition be performed.
He recalled the first time he met the Brazilian forward back in 2016 and said: “Philippe Coutinho and Lucas Leiva introduced him to me.”
“Bobby wanted to improve his grin, so we decided to get him some porcelain veneers.”
“We developed a super-white color for him because “he wanted them very white, beyond (grade) one on the chart.”
Dr. Hughes stated that many people have requested the “Bobby Dazzler” since Bobby had them done, he continued: “Since I first showed them off, many people have asked for the Firmino-inspired look.”
“Few people had previously requested them, but ever since Bobby had them done, patients of mine have come in and begged for “the Bobby Dazzlers.’
After rescuing a point for the Reds with a late equalizer in his final game at Anfield on Saturday afternoon, Firmino gave an emotional farewell to the Liverpool supporters.
And after the full-time whistle, he started crying.
The Brazilian forward’s contract will expire in June after 361 appearances in all competitions for the Reds, and he appears destined to leave Anfield this summer along with several other prominent players.
The 31-year-old informed Jurgen Klopp in March that he did not want to re-sign with the team, and according to reports from our sources, he has learned that both Barcelona and Real Madrid are contemplating a move for him.
And as his departure drew near, Liverpool supporters were seen serenading the forward with his cry, “Si Senior,” after the Reds defeated Leicester 3-0 on Monday night.
A number of the forward’s teammates have also praised him for his intelligent personality and superior footballing abilities.
Firmino will be one of many well-known figures leaving Anfield this summer; according to Mail Sport, James Milner is also planning to quit the club after eight years of service.
Also expected to leave the club this summer are Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita, as Klopp looks to upgrade his team.
