More often than not, if you run into a celebrity, you’re going to notice that they have an amazing set of pearly whites, an amazing smile that can usually set off a room, no matter if they’re a leading woman or man, or a character actor or actress. But there are plenty of actors who practice their trade and make it big — and they don’t do anything about their quirky set of teeth. Like Owen Wilson’s crooked nose, it becomes a part of their brand, their trademark.
A part of our brand at Bedford Dental Group is giving everybody who walks through our doors the chance to have a celebrity-grade smile. When patients walk through our doors, they might say they want the David Beckham, or the Tom Cruise as a joke, not knowing that each celebrity with a perfect grill has undergone their own procedures and has traveled a long road of practicing oral health and working with a skilled dentist in order to obtain their million dollar smile. So the same can be done for you!
Imperfect Teeth in Hollywood
Today, however, we are going to discuss some of these actors that probably won’t be mentioned when somebody comes to our offices looking to improve their smile. These are some actors who have made their living off of an imperfect set of teeth.
- Steve Buscemi — It is said that Steve Buscemi read the script for Fargo and was surprised when he read the description of his character as “weird looking”. He was taken aback. He had never considered himself to be “weird looking.” But Buscemi’s unorthodox grill has gotten him some amazing roles, working with the age’s very best directors. Because he is an amazing actor, he is able to step into various roles and maintain his position as one of the busiest actors of his generation.
- Anna Paquin — True Blood alum Anna Paquin isn’t ashamed of her teeth. She refuses to get rid of the space between her front teeth and chooses to embrace it, which never impeded her from landing amazing roles in amazing films as well as TV shows. Trust us, she’s never alone on date night. As a matter of fact, some people are intensely attracted to people with gaps or spaces in between their upper front teeth. We love Anna Paquin just the way she is, but we’re here if she ever needs us. We’d love to add her to our long list of celebrity clientele at Bedford Dental Group.
- Eddie Murphy — Funnyman Eddie Murphy has kept it real with his grill as well, also donning a space between his upper front teeth. He pulls it off because of his striking good looks and his comedic chops. You can get away with a lot when you make people laugh.
- Woody Harrelson — What started as a bit part in Cheers has grown into one of the most eclectic, far-spanning careers of his generation. Woody Harrelson is able to perform in comedic roles like Kingpin, as well as uber serious roles like True Detective and Out of the Furnace. He too has an idiosyncratic set of teeth, again choosing to embrace the gap between his front teeth.
These celebrities prove that you can look amazing just the way you are and that the best version of you has a lot more to do with the way you carry yourself through life than it does with having flawless looks. But if you are interested in improving your smile, a better set of teeth are far from unreachable.
