Famous Celebrity Smiles

Famous Celebrity Smiles

One question that’s often heard in cosmetic dentistry is, “Can you make my smile look like Julia Roberts (or some other celebrity with a megawatt smile)?” Like everything else concerning our physical appearances, celebrities have a big influence on how we think we would like to look. Putting together this list of famous celebrity smiles proved a little more difficult than we thought it would be, simply because there are so many great smiles to choose from.

We noticed pretty early on in our quest to find the best celebrity smiles that many of the most famous smiles aren’t famous for being perfectly straight or brilliantly white. It’s the unique shape of their teeth or the way their lips curve around their teeth and gums that makes their smile appealing. We also learned that though most celebrities on our list have maintained the qualities that make their smiles distinct, they’ve also had a little help from a dentist to improve their grins. Without further adieu, here is our list of famous celebrity smiles, from the perfectly straight to the beautifully unique.

Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts’ smile might be more famous than her roles in Pretty Woman and Erin Brockovich. Does Julia Roberts have a million-dollar smile? We know it’s worth at least $30,000. That’s the price of the insurance policy she has to, quite literally, insure her smile never goes away.

Tom Cruise

Cruise’s heydays as an actor may seemingly be over but he’s still one of the most famous celebrities in the world. In the 1980s Cruise was a teen heartthrob with a crooked grin. But as Cruise grew older and took on more mature roles, his smile evolved right along with his career. Tom was able to greatly improve his smile with orthodontia and whitening, but his famous grin is still imperfect. The Internet has spent years obsessing over Tom’s “middle tooth”, a misalignment problem that wasn’t corrected through his use of orthodontia.

Brad Pitt

He once voluntarily chipped bits of his front teeth to play a brawler in the now famous 90s cult classic Fight Club but that didn’t stop him from having one of the most famous and adored smiles in Hollywood. Of course, a little bit of cosmetic dental work corrected Pitt’s toothy sacrifice for his film role and today his smile shines brighter than ever.

The Young Royals

Prince William and Prince Harry are famous for more than being prominent members of the British monarchy. The two princes gained reputations as heartthrobs during their teen years and continue to be adored by fans all over the world for their good looks. Neither of their smiles is completely perfect but that seems to be part of their appeal. The princes are now both married and it’s safe to say their princess brides have stolen the spotlight more than once with their own beautiful smiles. Both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have straight, bright smiles that have most definitely been improved through cosmetic dentistry.

Will Smith

Will Smith is one of the most famous and beloved performers in Hollywood. He has what one might describe as an infectious smile that spreads across the room, no matter what room he’s in.

Angelina Jolie

We’re not sure why Angelina sported a serious look in many of her younger photos because she has one of the most beautiful smiles in the world. If cosmetic surgeons had a nickel for every patient that wanted Angelina’s smile, they would probably have enough money to buy their own private island.

Kerry Washington

Famous for her starring role as Washington, D.C “fixer” Olivia Pope on ABC’s hit series, Scandal, Kerry Washington has become an inspiration for women everywhere thanks to her natural beauty and class act.

Zac Efron

Zac’s perfectly imperfect smile first gained fame when he was just a teen playing a leading role in Disney’s High School Musical. His gapped-tooth grin and shaggy hair somehow won the hearts of young girls everywhere but as he grew up, he cut his hair and closed in the gap between his two front teeth with orthodontia.

Anna Paquin

Anna Paquin and Zac Efron may seem like two people with nothing in common but their Hollywood statuses but they share more than you might think. Like Zac, Anna was thrust into the spotlight at a young age and will always be known as one of the youngest actresses[;ll ever to win an Oscar. Another thing she has in common with Efron? Her gapped-tooth grin. Unlike Efron, Anna chose to embrace the gap and has left it untouched.

Tom Hiddleston

Tom Hiddleston’s smile is so contagious, it helped turn Hiddleston’s role as what should have been a Marvel supervillain into a beloved anti-hero that became a much bigger part of the dynamic Marvel Cinematic Universe than anyone, including Hiddleston himself, could anticipate.

Anne Hathaway

She won hearts at a young age as the wide-toothed would-be princess Mia Thermopolis in 2001’s The Princess Diaries. Though she’s changed her look often for various movie roles, Anne Hathaway is always recognizable when she flashes her famous smile.

Queen Bey is an icon known for her music, fashion and marriage to famed rapper and producer, Jay-Z. She’s also admired for her perfect smile. Even in her young Destiny’s Child days, Beyonce had a great smile, but she’s made it even better over the years with professional whitening treatments.

Gwen Stefani pulled on the heartstrings of awkward teenage girls everywhere when she debuted her set of traditional braces after the success of Tragic Kingdom, her first album with former band, No Doubt. When Stefani got adult braces she was fulfilling a promise to herself to correct her smile misalignment when her band found financial success. Now, she’s famous for “embracing” her braces and the beautiful smile she received in return.
