Celebrities often have god-like features like a perfect jawline, thick and shiny hair, a figure carved by the legendary sculptors themselves. However, in reality, they are like any other human with their flaws and shortcomings. And it should not come as a surprise that sometimes they too have gone through situations that affected their whole life, like losing a tooth or even many teeth.
With dental achievements, we can’t see many celebs without one or two teeth. But many had gone through the awkward moments of losing their teeth.
Let’s look at celebrities who had missing teeth.
Demi Moore is one of the highest-paid actresses of the 80s and 90s. The A Few Good Men actress is a natural when it comes to acting.
Besides being an actress with polished acting skills and a stunning personality, she is also an honest and bold person. She is one of the very few celebrities who shared their bad experiences about losing their teeth.
Moore was very vocal about losing two of her front teeth during the show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. During her time on the show, she shared that she lost both of her front teeth due to excessive stress. As the conversation proceeded forward, Moore was even bold enough to show a picture of hers after losing her front teeth.
She nearly lost her signature smile. But thanks to the advancement in dentistry, she fixed her teeth and restored her contagious smile.
Jim Carrey is an outstanding comedian and actor who ruled the comedy genre of movies throughout the 90s. Everybody loved his energetic and fun acting in movies like Bruce Almighty, The Mask.
However, even the actor had some difficult times because of his teeth. The actor chipped his tooth and had to get it fixed. However, the actor did remove the caps from his tooth while shooting for Dumb and Dumber.
While many celebrities treasure themselves, few put their career before themselves. One of these few is Nicholas Cage. The Oscar-winning actor pulled out two of his teeth for his role in the movie Birdy. Though the decision was hard, his sacrifice did pay off as the movie became one of the top ten films of 1984 and gathered many positive reviews.
Another celebrity who took the help of modern dentistry is the lead actress of the hit series Lizzie McGuire. The actress with a smile that could light the whole room once chipped her tooth on a microphone. However, she fixed it back by getting some veneers.
Some of the celebrities could have never predicted that they could lose a tooth or two. But it was not the case for the former professional boxer Mike Tyson who knew this could happen to him any day.
During his twenty years of boxing career, Tyson who loves keeping exotic pets fought many fights. In some, he broke the bones and teeth of his opponent, while in others, he was the one who got the hit.
Tyson has not lost one or two but many teeth during his fights which he has replaced with fake teeth thanks to his dentists.
Everyone envies the life of rockstars, but it’s not always the case. Even the exciting tours and concerts have their drawbacks and sometimes can even cost you your teeth. And nobody would know it better than the lead singer of the band Aerosmith, Steven Tyler.
During one of his tours in South Africa, the singer passed out due to food poisoning. Though he was not seriously injured, he did lose his front teeth.
The stunning supermodel and author, Janice Dickinson, is also one of the celebrities who has depended on the miracles of dentistry.
She not only has fake teeth but also has a funny story about them. Dickinson almost lost her fake teeth while going out for lunch with her friend in Sant Ambroeus in Southampton. She had just taken them out and wrapped them in a napkin but later couldn’t find it. She then started searching for her fake teeth, and even her friend stepped in. They continued the search until they found it.
These celebrities might have one or two teeth missing, which got replaced with some fake ones with time, but they still have what it takes to grab the limelight. Despite not having the real thing, their talents and beauty will always be enough to make them part of headlines and gossip.
