Maybe They’re Born with it. Maybe it’s Dental Work.

In a world obsessed with image, it’s no surprise that the rich and famous are often stunningly beautiful with million-dollar smiles. However, it’s not necessarily a result of perfect genes, and good luck, like many people, think it is.

Many celebrities and public figures have spent a pretty sum on dental implants, veneers, caps, and whitening for that perfect set of teeth. Here’s a list of ten celebrities who have undergone dental work:

Dental Work

01. Tom Cruise

Arguably the most famous of them all is one of Hollywood’s favorite action stars, Tom Cruise. Those who have followed his career graph from the very beginning will have noticed his severely misaligned and discolored teeth. Shortly after that, he had his first dental work done. Since then, Cruise has had straightening, whitening, crowns, and a full set of veneers done.

02. Mike Tyson

Heavyweight boxing champion turned actor, Mike Tyson, has transformed his look rather dramatically since his days in the ring. After retiring from the sport, that is most threatening to a full set of teeth, Tyson repaired his smile with dental implants and a complete set of veneers to cover up his precious chompers.

03. Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus has transitioned from an innocuous former child star into a risqué performer and personality. Her teeth have transitioned from crooked to straight and flawlessly white, as well.

04. 50 Cent

Curtis Jackson, better known as 50 Cent, has been in the news for all the wrong reasons recently regarding his finances, but long before that he openly spent more than $50,000 on cosmetic dental work to correct his smile. From dental implants for missing teeth to filling gaps, his new smile is flawless.

05. Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey’s teeth were far from perfect, earlier in his career. When filming Dumb and Dumber, he had an existing crown removed to reveal a chipped tooth from an earlier accident, only fixing it once again when filming was completed.

06. Hilary Duff

Like Miley Cyrus, Hilary Duff is another former child star to have modified her smile. Although, her veneers are said to have come about after chipping a tooth on a microphone while performing many years ago.

07. George Clooney

Frequently voted the sexiest man alive and one of the worlds most adored actors, George Clooney, wore his teeth down as a result of grinding from stress. Throughout his career, he has had crowns put in to lengthen his teeth and veneers to give him a perfectly even and white smile.

08. Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham is one of the most recognized faces around the world, but she looked a little different before she became Posh Spice. She has had work done to lengthen her teeth and close gaps.

09. Chris Rock

Fans of one of the world’s most successful comedians, Chris Rock, will notice severe changes in his smile over the years. It’s not entirely clear what he had done, but he certainly has had implants to replace missing teeth.

10. Morgan Freeman

Morgan Freeman may have aged gracefully into his 80’s, but his teeth needed some brightening and straightening along the way. With some help from a set of veneers, fans will notice the gap between his front teeth have disappeared, and his smile has improved.
