How often do you look up to a celebrity and think they were born with a dazzling celebrity smile? One look at our celebrity teeth: before and after veneers and whitening and you’ll notice that’s certainly not the case.
So your privacy might be restricted and you life live in the spotlight, but one perk of being famous is you can usually afford high-end dental work. We’re talking veneers, professional whitening – the lot.
Most of our favourite stars have had more than a little helping hand to get those gleaming, white celebrity teeth – often having had veneers fitted and whitening treatments done to ensure their smile sparkles. After all, who wants to be caught on camera with a crooked grin?
Celebrities such as George Clooney, Tom Cruise and even Kylie Minogue have all undergone a smile makeover, and we’ve got the pictures to prove it.
Once you’ve seen these celebrity teeth: before and after, you won’t believe the difference a little dental work can have…
Celebrity teeth: before and after veneers and whitening
Judy Murray’s teeth
Andy Murray’s mum had a new set of pearly whites fitted just before appearing on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing back in 2014. And Judy’s celebrity teeth are as bright as Andy’s tennis whites!
On her new gnashers, Judy told Radio Times, “Getting my teeth done was a big thing for me because I?m really terrified of the dentist and I desperately needed a lot of work. In the past couple of years, though, I’ve had more time and money and I’ve started to take better care of my appearance.”
Victoria Beckham’s teeth
Victoria Beckham may have given her teeth the ultimate whitening makeover since her days in the Spice Girls, but the fashion designer is well-known for rarely flashing her celebrity teeth in public.
But, it’s something she’s working on as Victoria, 46, continues to let her guard down with her adoring fans.
“The not smiling publicly, for instance. There’s less of that now,” she recently confessed. “There’s something really liberating about embracing who I am at 45 years old and owning it, feeling confident, feeling content.”
Philip Schofield’s teeth
It’s safe to say This Morning star, Philip Schofield – who recently came out as gay – looked pretty different when he made his television debut in the eighties.
Back then, Philip sported brown hair and a dodgy smile. But, with his career sky-rocketing, Philip soon had his teeth sorted and now sports a brighter-than-bright set which almost match his hair.
Tom Cruise’s teeth
Tom is another A-lister to have given his celebrity teeth a makeover. The Top Gun perfectionist now has a picture-perfect Hollywood smile – and don’t we love to see it!
Ronan Keating’s teeth
The Boyzone star was once a fresh-faced pop star with average teeth. But, the singer promptly got his teeth transformed into a dazzling white set before he rose to fame in the early 90s.
Kylie Minogue’s teeth
Everyone knows Kylie Minogue’s got amazing celebrity teeth, but it wasn’t always that way. The pint-sized pop princess always had straight teeth, but she’s made sure her gnashers have stayed bright white since she started on Neighbours all that time ago.
Andy Murray's mum had a new set of pearly whites fitted just before appearing on the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing, and by gum, they're as bright as Andy's tennis whites!
She told Radio Times: 'Getting my teeth done was a big thing for me because I?m really terrified of the dentist and I desperately needed a lot of work. In the past couple of years, though, I?ve had more time and money and I?ve started to take better care of my appearance.'
What do you think to Judy's new gnashers?
Well, Cher Lloyd is looking more, erm, polished.
star, who shot to fame after appearing on the 7th series of the UK X
Factor, has been busy making it big in America, and it seems she's had a
set of all-American pearly white veneers to complete her
Cher has previously spoken about how much she
disliked her teeth, once telling Alan Carr, 'I hate them, I look like a
complete and utter rabbit.'
We have to admit we think we
preferred Cher's old teeth, they weren't perfect but they gave her
character. What do you think? Let us know in a comment below.
What a transformation - a stint on the X Factor clearly spurred N-Dubz
singer, Tulisa, into action when she got a set of £12k veneers fitted
just before the show.
Check out Nicola's Hollywood smile makeover! The Girls Aloud star's come
a long way from her days in the group and has had her teeth
straightened and whitened after wearing an invisible brace for a year.
Looks like the One Direction star has had some dental work since he shot to fame on Simon Cowell's X Factor! The singer, who was only 16 when he appeared on the show, had braces fitted in 2010 and since having them removed 15 months later - he can't stop smiling!
The star, who has enjoyed massive success with his bandmates since the show, is proof of how important it is to look after your teeth. Braces might not be pleasant, but they're worth it when you're left with a dazzling grin like this!
We've watched Cheryl's dazzling set of pearly whites on The X Factor,
but she hasn't always had a bright white smile. In fact, before she hit
the big time with Girls Aloud, her teeth looked rather different!
He may be pretty good in the kitchen but Gordon Ramsay didn't always have bright white perfect teeth. See the difference from 2002 to now?
Despite giving her gnashers a serious dose of bright-white, Victoria Beckham still never seems to smile. Such a shame!
Wow! We couldn't believe it when we saw what Demi Moore's teeth used to look like. She now sports a gleaming set of white teeth that she's all too happy to show off.
Kerry's teeth aren't entirely different from how they used to be, but the star has definitely had some whitening work done.
Brit beauty Kate Beckinsale hasn't always had the perfect Hollywood smile. Not that you'd think it now, but back in her younger days the actress had a much more girl-next door set of teeth!
Same hair, same tan but one crucial difference, Simon's teeth have gone about 20 shades whiter since his meteoric rise to fame.
Yep that's right, even George 'gorgeous' Clooney wasn't born with perfect teeth. The Hollywood A-lister has had the whole lot done including veneers and a heavy dose of whitening.
Welsh wonder Catherine Zeta's teeth were pretty average 20 years ago but since her first hit role in the late 80s, her teeth went from dull to dazzling in a matter of hours.
Check out Phil's dodgy smile (and 'do) in this pic from 1989. He quickly had his teeth sorted and now sports a brighter-than-bright set which almost matches his hair.
Tom is another A-lister to have given his teeth a makeover. The Top Gun perfectionist now has a picture-perfect Hollywood smile.
One thing we noticed about this hilarious pic of Ronan Keating (apart from that helmet) was his pretty awful teeth. The Boyzone star promtly got them transformed into a dazzling white set before he rose to fame in the early 90s.
Everyone knows Kylie's got pretty amazing teeth but it wasn't always that way. The pint-sized pop princess has made sure her gnashers have stayed bright white since she started on Neighbours all that time ago.
To be fair, Fern's teeth weren't that bad when she started out in the television industry but she's known to be a fan of whitening procedures every now and again.
Geri Halliwell is another Spice Girl to transform her smile from goofy to gorgeous. Geri now sports brilliant white and perfectly formed teeth.
We could barely believe the pic on the left was High School Musical hunk Zac Efron. Zac's gappy smile has been quickly transformed into a gleaming, and perfectly straight set of teeth.
Ah, get a look at Robbie Williams back in the good old Take That days. Good for Robbie, but not so good for his teeth, clearly. Rob now has a gleaming set of teeth but he rarely shows them off.
Even supermodels need a bit of help in the beauty department it seems. Jodie Kidd's teeth got a makeover just in time for her modelling career to take off.
Woah! We're not a fan of Nic's old teeth, lucky for him (and us) he quickly got his stained gnashers upgraded Hollywood style.
Cher needed quite a bit of work to get her crocked smile sorted. She's had her teeth straightened and whitened.
While we think Colin looks cute in the pic from 1985 (left) we noticed his teeth have changed somewhat since then. It looks like the Brit actor has definitely given his smile a new lease of life, possibly with veneers.
Eamonn Holmes has made sure his teeth are TV friendly with what looks like whitening and straightening treatments.
David Bowie's teeth were actually brown before he decided to get them sorted. Lucky for him, he splashed out on a brand new stain-free set.
Even Hugh Grant is not averse to the odd bit of dental work. His teeth are defintely brighter and whiter than when he stared in the classic Four Weddings and a Funeral.
Disney princess Mliey Cyrus has had her teeth matched to her personality. Gone are her crooked baby teeth and in their place are bright, shiny, white ones.
Even rock stars have succumbed to designer dentisty including Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher. He traded in his stumpy set for some nice, new shiny ones.
Michael Douglas said goodbye to his rather unpleasant set of teeth a long time ago. He's had the perfect Hollywood smile since hitting the big time back in the 80s.
