Believe it or not, celebrities aren’t perfect. It takes a lot of work to maintain appearances when you have millions of eyes on you every day. These celebs depended on a little dentistry work to give them the award-winning smiles they have today.
20. Tom Cruise
Tom started his career with discolored teeth that were not properly aligned. It’s apparent the actor uses fake teeth to help correct the dental issues, but you can see his teeth are still not perfectly aligned.
19. Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff reportedly chipped one of her front teeth on a microphone in her younger days. It appears the actress and pop singer fixed the tooth with veneers.
18. George Clooney
George didn’t always have such white teeth. That is, until he apparently had some cosmetic dentistry work done. It’s apparent the actor relies on fake teeth, possibly veneers, to give him that charming smile.
17. Chris Rock
It’s said Chris Rock has had major dental work done as the size, shape, and position of his teeth have changed since the beginning of his career.
16. Ben Affleck
The actor has had a subtle change to his teeth since his days on Good Will Hunting as they seem “longer,” and not as much gum shows when he smiles.
15. 50 Cent
The rapper has admitted to spending over $50,000 on his smile. He started his career with stained teeth that were not properly aligned, and he’s now flaunting some seriously straight pearly whites.
14. Catherine Zeta-Jones
The ever gorgeous Catherine Zeta-Jones appears to have a bit of work done to change the alignment and shape of her teeth, and this may be attributed to veneers.
13. Nicolas Cage
The actor actually had two teeth pulled for his role in the 1984 movie Birdy. Since then, Cage has gone on to get a full set of veneers and star in many more roles that don’t require him to lose teeth.
12. Gary Busey
Gary’s large teeth are said to be either veneers or implants as his smile continues to baffle fans.
11. Mike Tyson
It’s no surprise boxer Mike Tyson has needed a bit of dental work throughout his career. In some photos, Tyson is missing teeth, while in others, he has gold replacements.
10. Celine Dion
Celine Dion didn’t have “bad” teeth to begin with, but they weren’t as white or aligned as they could be. These days, she’s sporting straight white teeth that could only be the result of cosmetic dentistry.
9. Jon Bon Jovi
The musician’s teeth have continued to improve through the years, and one look at how white and perfectly shaped they are leads one to suspect he’s had some work done.
8. NeNe Leakes
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes has been outspoken of her fondness for perfect teeth. Her perfect smile is all thanks to veneers.
7. Courtney Love
Given her track history with drugs and smoking, Courtney Love has an impeccable stain-free set of teeth. Comparisons of her past photos with present ones seem to suggest she’s had work done, possibly veneers.
6. Victoria Beckham
The former Spice Girl is said to rely on veneers for her brilliant smile.
5. Jim Carrey
Carrey really did have a chipped tooth while filming Dumb and Dumber. It’s evident the actor has since had work done to perfect his front teeth.
4. Jamie Foxx
Jamie may have had braces to fill in gaps between his teeth. However, it’s also believed he could have skipped that process and is using veneers instead.
3. Bruce Springsteen
Bruce Springsteen’s teeth appear to be whiter and straighter than they once were earlier in his career. This may be attributed to using veneers to cover chipped teeth as some singers suffer from microphone mishaps.
2. Jennifer Garner
The actress uses veneers to help cover her gums, which would draw attention away from the rest of her features.
1. Miley Cyrus
A side-by-side look at Miley’s “old” teeth show just how much her smile has changed. She’s evidently using veneers to help align her teeth and give her that pearly white smile.
