Not just limited to actors and singers, our faces are part of the product we are selling. Whether selling an album, landing a lead in a movie, or getting your dream job or that promotion at work, it’s important to have a memorable, confident smile in our fields of work. Without great teeth, you simply can’t pull that off.
Cosmetic dentistry options include: teeth whitening, bonded veneers, porcelain veneers, gum lifts, braces and implants.
Let’s turn to some of Hollywood’s stars for inspiration. Their before and after photos will truly wow you at what a difference a nicer smile will make to your overall look and identity.
Tom Cruise (Actor)
The star of “Risky Business,” “Mission Impossible,” “Top Gun” and many more Hollywood blockbusters… it’s hard to believe he once had crooked teeth. To become a true leading man capable of bring in billions, Cruise had a number of cosmetic dental procedures done, including whitening, straightening his teeth and veneers.
Catherine Zeta Jones (Actor)
Oscar winner Catherine Zeta Jones has it all: beauty, talent and beautiful smile, thanks to her cosmetic dentist. Jones has said she was teased for her crooked teeth as a child and she had braces as a teenager. Over the years, she’s had procedures performed to both whiten and straighten her teeth. No one’s teasing her now, that’s for sure.
Michael Douglas (Actor)
Early the early days, Michael Douglas’s teeth appear dark and narrow. He has had his teeth veneered to make his smile bright white, longer and wider to give him a more youthful look.
Notorious for her bad girl image and controversial behaviour, there is something she has done right and that is her winning smile. Bright, elegant and beautiful.
Morgan Freeman (Actor)
Morgan Freeman is no doubt a gifted artist, but his teeth had yellowed as he aged. The Oscar nominee had them whitened and also had the gap in the middle filled. He looks a decade younger than he did before seeing his dentist, a great help in landing him different movie roles.
Victoria Beckham (Singer and Fashion Icon)
The former member of the Spice Girls, ‘Posh Spice’ was known for her coutured and slick style. But Beckham’s old teeth were anything but posh, with gaps between her teeth and unproportional teeth. Good thing she had her teeth whitened and straightened before she shot to fame in the late 1990’s.
David Beckham (Athlete)
Before he became England’s captain, soccer football star David Beckham had crooked, narrow and yellow teeth. Not only an athlete, Beckham is a modern day fashion icon. Part of his appeal is his straight, white perfect pearly whites.
George Clooney (Actor)
One of the most handsome and suave actors in Hollywood, voted Sexiest Man Alive, owes part of his appeal to his dentist. Clooney has his teeth made longer and whiter with veneers. He had this treatment done after his “Facts of Life” days. It wasn’t a purely cosmetic reason. He is one of the many who grind their teeth, hence the need for adding lost length to the teeth. The veneers served him well to lengthen and replace the missing tooth structure that he had worn off over the years.
Celine Dion (Singer)
Celine Dion has one of the best voices of her generation. The voice of songs such as “My Heart Will Go On” and “Because You Loved Me. When her career began to take off in the 90’s, Dion had her teeth whitened and her teeth re-shaped. They look smaller and more proportional now than they were in the 80’s, and brighter.
Zac Efron (Actor)
“High School Musical” heartthrob, Zac Efron needed cosmetic dental work to help him fix his gappy teeth before he shot to stardom. Efron had some great improvement with dental whitening and had the gaps closed with either 2 porcelain veneers or orthodontically using removable clear braces. It seems to have been worth it.
Katherine Heigl (Actor)
The American beauty looked cute with crooked teeth, however after getting braces and getting her teeth straightened, she looks like the epitome of a movie star now.
Miley Cyrus (Singer and Actor)
During the “Hannah Montana” days, Miley Cyrus had slightly crooked teeth and a gummy smile. Now she’s all grown up. She had her teeth whitened and straightened after she left Disney and they’ve become part of her signature tongue-out look.
Ben Affleck (Actor)
Before Ben Affleck landed leading roles in films such as “Batman vs. Superman” and “Gone Girl”, the actor had bucky-looking teeth. It wasn’t until Armageddon that Ben Affleck reported to have his cosmetic dental work done. It appears dental whitening, veneers and some gum work are behind his new and improved.
Hilary Duff (Singer and Actor)
In 2009 when Hilary Duff she chipped her tooth on a microphone while in concert. She got the chipped tooth fixed, and from the photos you can’t tell which tooth it was. Her smile has never looked better.
Jim Carrey (Actor)
Did you know that the star of “Dumb and Dumber” and “Dumb and Dumber To” Jim Carrey, actually has his front tooth chipped, just like in the movie? Carrey had the tooth bonded decades ago, but he removes the bonding occasionally to amuse fans. Apparently he had it de-bonded for the sequel.
Nicolas Cage (Actor)
To get into character for the 1984 film “Birdy,” Nicolas Cage actually had two teeth pulled. As soon as Cage moved on to leading man roles, he got a full set of veneers, which seem to have served him well. He even won an Oscar for “Leaving Las Vegas.”
Demi Moore (Actor)
“Ghost” actress Demi Moore certainly doesn’t look like a woman in her 50’s and a good part of that is due to her stunning pearly whites. Moore’s teeth looked yellowed and aged. Her veneers look totally natural and her smile is straighter and whiten than before.
Keith Urban (Singer)
Australian country singer Keith Urban had a gap in between his two front teeth early in his career, but by the time he and fellow Aussie Nicole Kidman got married in 2006, he had fixed that gap, and his teeth had gotten notably whiter and straighter.
Cher Lloyd (Singer)
Contestant from X Factor, Cher Lloyd was known for her pitch-perfect voice however her smile was not so perfect. She had her smile whitened and the gaps between her teeth closed. The singer told a magazine she “hated” her teeth and thought they made her look like a rabbit.
50 Cent (Rapper)
50 Cent (a.k.a. Fiddy) had the gap between his front teeth fixed after another rapper called him out for it in a song.
Snooki (Reality Star)
MTV’s Jersey Shore star, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was known for her obnoxious behaviour. fake tan and beehive hairdo. However her teeth didn’t get the same love. Snooki had her slightly crooked teeth straightened and she also got them whitened. The results look fantastic and she seemed to have ditched her old look too. Thank god for that!
Louis Walsh (Music Manager)
Louis Walsh, the famous Irish music manager who is also a judge on the British reality show, X Factor, had a smile makeover done before going on television. His yellowed teeth were brightened and the crooked teeth were straightened with braces.
