10 Celebrities With Some Not-So-Sexy Smiles
You may think with the money and resources that most celebrities have, they would have perfect teeth. Not so. Apart from all the procedures, such as braces, close gaps, crowns, whiteners and veneers, dental work is painful and the recovery time is uneasy. And more importantly, some celebrities may lose the chance to get certain roles if they don't have their unique smiles. Here are 10 celebrities who have chosen not to fix their bad teeth and instead opted to keep their original ones.
1. Mike Tyson
Mike Tyson had bad teeth. Fortunately, he decided to trim his teeth when he filmed "The Hangover". Still, he didn't remove his famous gap.
2. Jon Heder
Jon Heder is known for his role as the titular character in "Napoleon Dynamite". There are certain oppurtunities he has gotten due to his unusually large front tooth.
3. Gary Busey
Gary Busey is one of the most scandalous actors in Hollywood, and his outsized porcelain veneers match his personality. He had a motorcycle accident in 1988 which damaged his face. He had cosmetic dental surgery and opted for oversizing his teeth as part of the surgery. It seems to work well for Busey.
4. Ricky Gervais
Ricky Gervais doesn't have a perfect set of teeth, which are a little crooked and yellowed. However, he makes up for it with his terrific sense of humor.
5. Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson's teeth are not that terrible. It is her hygiene that is questionable. She has admitted that she doesn't like brushing her teeth because she "hates the slippery feeling" after she brushes them.
6. Anna Paquin
We all love Anna's role in "True Blood", but we don't necessarily like her teeth. Her gap in between her teeth has become part of her signature look. You may wonder why she seems to be allergic to smiling. This may be the reason.
Madonna has a gap between her front teeth, but it seems that the gap got smaller in the past few years. It is likely that she has had dental surgery since the gap would grow over the years instead of shrink.
8. Shane MacGowan
Shane MacGowan is best known as the original singer and songwriter. He is also considered as one of the most significant and poetic Irish songwriters. After years of addiction to drugs and alcohol, he ended up with disastrous dentistry.
9. Clint Howard
Born in 1959, Clint Howard made many impressive roles in "Cocoon", Steve Martin's "Parenthood", "Apollo 13" and many others. He was awarded the MTV Lifetime Achievement Award. People probably remember him for his toothy grin.
10. Johnny Rotten
Johnny Rotten had terrible teeth that perfectly matched his name. Over the past few years, he's made a bit of an effort to fix his bad teeth.
