We all know that celebrities don’t look that good on their own. They have stylists, makeup artists and some even go as far as plastic surgery. But did you know that some celebrities had to get some serious dental work done before their careers could take off? Here are 15 celebs who have had some dental work done.
When Victoria was still known as Posh Spice she rocked a wicked overbite. It looks like she has had some work done on that grin. Now her teeth are brighter and whiter. She might have had braces to pull her teeth into line. Maybe that’s why she didn’t smile for years? You can’t be a style icon when your smile says, “Zig-a-zig-ah!”
Back when Miley was still known as Hannah Montana, she had cute, little teeth that were slightly crooked. Once Hannah Montana was finished, Miley rebranded everything about herself, including her teeth. She wore braces hidden behind her teeth and had them veneered. Now she’s all grown up and has the smile to match.
Even after years of dental work, Tom’s smile is still off centre. But it’s nothing compared to what his teeth used to be like! If you watch some of his early movies, like Legend, you can see how much work he has had done. His cosmetic dentist must have rubbed his hands with glee when Tom cruised through the door.
Kirsten was known for her quirky smile with slightly crooked teeth. As cute as her smile was, it didn’t cut it in Tinsel-town. Now she has had them straightened and whitened, she’s not just playing the girl-next-door. This smile is worthy of a leading lady.
When Ben Affleck was starting out his teeth were tiny, he looked like he still had his baby teeth. Once his career took off, he got some veneers to make him look like a grown-up. Now his smile says “heartthrob” instead of “I’m waiting on the tooth fairy”.
When Cheryl started her career in Girls Aloud, her teeth were far from perfect. But as her career got bigger, her teeth got better. Over the years she has had them polished to perfection. Now she has the smile of a Hollywood A-Lister. It’s amazing what a good dentist can do for you.
Do you remember watching Dumb and Dumber? Do you remember Jim Carrey’s chipped tooth? Turns out he had an accident years before and the chip was real! He had a cap over the top to cover it for other movies but had it removed for the part of Lloyd Christmas. Since then he has kept it under wraps with veneers.
Drugs are bad, and Lindsay Lohan’s mouth is proof of that! The once perfect smile has been left damaged from Lindsay’s party lifestyle. She has gone the other way with her grin. She had her smile fixed as a teenager and ruined it as an adult. Maybe when she gets them whitened and fixed up, Hollywood will come knocking for her again.
Grinding your teeth can be really bad for you and leave your teeth a bit of a mess. So it’s pretty surprising that one of the sexiest men alive grinds his teeth, a lot! George Clooney has to see his dentist for regular check-ups on his pearly whites. Teeth grinding and those teeth? We need the number of his cosmetic dentist.
Looking at pictures of Taylor Swift it’s hard to imagine that she never used to smile. When she was a teenage model she posed with her mouth shut because of her teeth. Since the days of her crooked smile, she’s had a lot of work done. Now she won’t be seen without her trademark grin.
Steve has been adamant over the years that he won’t get his teeth fixed. The reason? He thinks he won’t get any more acting jobs! Now he just has them cleaned and polished.

Somewhere between the Mickey Mouse Club and her first album, Britney had her teeth fixed. Since then she has had her teeth repaired and fixed plenty of times.

The material girl is famous for the gap in the front of her teeth so getting her teeth pulled together is never going to happen. Instead, she has regular work to maintain her trademark grin. Madge never keeps the same look for long, so it’s not surprising that she shakes things up with a gold grill sometimes.
Acting and boxing don’t tend to mix. So when Mike Tyson wanted to move to acting he had to take action. There are only so many times you can have your teeth knocked out, so Mike had a different idea. Now he has a gold set that his dentist made just for him.
