A Hollywood smile. Who doesn’t want one? A lot of our patients here at Perio NYC come to us in search of a way to revamp a less-than-perfect smile because they’re so enticed by the straight and shiny teeth of their favorite celebrities.
But did you know that a lot of celebrities started out with crooked, damaged, or missing teeth, too?
That’s right—Miley Cyrus’s stunning smile wasn’t always stunning. She, along with many other of our favorite stars, had aesthetic dental treatments to attain their straight teeth. Take a look at our list of 5 celebrities who underwent amazing smile transformations.
1. Miley Cyrus
Back in her Hannah Montana days, Miley Cyrus had a crooked smile. As a teen, it added to her charm and appeal, making her look sweet and down-to-earth.
As we all know, Miley grew up pretty quickly and adopted a more adult and sophisticated look. After leaving Disney Channel, Miley had her teeth straightened and whitened, which adds to her signature tongue-out smile.
2. George Clooney
A well-known heartthrob, George Clooney owes at least part of his look to his cosmetic dentist. Clooney is a tooth grinder, and after many years of wearing his dentition down, he was in the market for a set of replacement teeth.
Now, sporting a full set of veneers, George Clooney retains his position as one of the most handsome stars in Hollywood with stronger and straighter teeth than ever.
3. Demi Moore
Famous for her stunning performances in Ghost and G.I. Jane, Demi Moore is one of the most talented actresses and producers in Hollywood. About a decade ago, Moore decided that it was time that her teeth, which were discolored and crooked, start to reflect her talent and personality.
After considering several options, Moore opted for veneers, which make her look much younger than an actress in her fifties!
4. Clark Gable
This Gone with the Wind star is famous for his dreamy looks and immense talent. Back in the 1930’s, before modern dental implants were available, a gum infection forced Gable into having most of his teeth extracted.
After recovering, Gable was fitted with a full set of dentures. And while the dentures definitely gave him a smile worth bragging about, it also gave him a persistent case of halitosis!
5. Catherine Zeta Jones
Actress and Oscar winner Catherine Zeta Jones definitely does not come to mind when you think of celebrities who need a makeover. As a teen, Jones was teased for having crooked teeth and she wore braces for several years.
As an adult, Jones had her teeth and gums worked on several times, finally giving her the smile that we all know and admire.
