The power that we hold within our smiles is astronomical. Having a great set of pearly whites can have a immense-positive effect on your self-esteem. When you have confidence in your smile you have confidence in life, such as enjoying social situations knowing that you can flash your grin with ease, share it willingly with strangers, or even reap the benefits when it comes to interviewing for a new job or getting that big promotion.
Nobody understands the influence that a great smile has on the path of a career more than the those who are trying to make it big on the silver screen. Hollywood is filled with people who have had immense dental work done to turn their not-so-hot smile into a perfect, dazzling, and star-worthy grin.
Let’s take a look at some of the all time greats who sought the help of dental professionals to give them the smiles that we all love and recognize today.
1- Nicolas Cage
Oddly enough, Nicolas Cage actually had two teeth pulled for his role in the 1984 movie “Birdy.” But his rough around the edges look was keeping him from getting the leading roles we all know him from. With a full set of veneers, Cage was able to land his Oscar winning role for “Leaving Las Vegas.”
2- Victoria Beckham

“Posh” spice didn’t become the most famous Spice Girl with the set of chompers she was genetically given. Uneven spaces and gaps led her to get them straightened and bonded. But besides her beautiful smile helping her with her music career, some would argue that having a great smile also helped her woo her heartthrob and incredibly athletic husband, David Beckham. Worth the dental work? Absolutely.
3- Ben Affleck

Before Ben Affleck broke hearts all over the world in his role in “Armageddon” he was writing Oscar winning screenplays with his best friend, Matt Damon. Although he won an Oscar for “Good Will Hunting” he didn’t land any of the roles where he would play the mega-hot love interest until he had several cosmetic-dental procedures in his mid-30’s. Now he is rocking a set of beautiful pearly whites and still breaking hearts with his dashing smile.
4- Keith Urban
This Australian country music singer, songwriter, and guitarist has come a long way in his career, love and family life, and most certainly with his smile. Keith travels the world sharing his incredible voice for millions of fans and thanks to his exquisite dental work he does so with a dazzling smile.
5- Morgan Freeman
Having one of the most recognizable voices in the acting business doesn’t always mean that it naturally comes with a perfect grill. From the time he made his mark on the film industry in “Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves” to his many awards and Oscar nomination that he has today, Morgan knows his way around a movie set. But with the help of cosmetic dentistry he has easily shaved off 10 years from his appearance, which will keep him in the acting game and help him land desirable roles.
6- Matthew Lewis
Matthew is known for playing the blundering character “Neville Longbottom” in the “Harry Potter” films. However, with the help of cosmetic dentistry he has transformed himself from “that awkward kid” into a Hollywood heartthrob.
