Everyone knows that their smile is often the first thing that people notice about them, and is the element that makes a lasting impression. Very often, celebrities have the most dazzling and gorgeous smiles you’ve ever seen, but not all of them share the same dedication to dental excellence. Here are a few examples of celebrities who could use a little help with their smile.
Once an acclaimed actor, Gary Busey has become something of a punchline in and out of Hollywood. In fact, he seems to have embraced that role, occasionally making fun of his persona to the delight of fans. Busey is well known for a full mouth of incredibly oversized teeth, which are widely believed to be false. With a multitude of options ranging from custom dentures to a full set of dental implants, it’s hard to imagine why Busey would continue to embrace dentures with horse-like proportions.
This Academy Award-nominated actor has one of the most recognizable faces in the world. He has embraced roles ranging from comedy to drama, but a look back through the actor’s career suggests that dental work has not been a high priority. Harrelson displays a smile filled with crooked and stained teeth, as well as several missing teeth. Perhaps the actor believes that his challenged smile helps him more fully embody many of the troubled characters he portrays on film.
Here’s an example of a celebrity who once had serious dental issues, but who embraced the power of professional dental work as his career took off. As a teenager, Tom Cruise had a smile that included a cracked tooth, misalignment and some serious discoloration. Widely acclaimed as one of the most handsome leading men in the world, it’s hard to believe that Tom Cruise once displayed such an unsightly smile. As his career heated up, dental treatment gave Cruise the high wattage, Hollywood smile that we now associate with the action star. However, even with all the dental treatment provided, he’s still widely known as the actor with the off-kilter smile. Google it and see for yourself.
This superstar female rapper has a number of physical attributes that set her apart from the crowd. Her dazzling smile is near the top of that list, but Minaj was not always rocking such a gorgeous grin. In 2012, photographers captured a shot of the performer with her mouth open wide, providing a clear view to significant issues on some of her lower teeth. Her dentist seems to have properly addressed the issue, and Nicki Minaj is enjoying a healthy career along with her healthy smile.
