Ronaldo had humble beginnings. Born in Portugal, this lad had no idea he was going to grow up to be the first billionaire soccer player in the world. His teeth certainly didn’t since they decided to stick out at odd angles like a pile of clay bricks. Success in the world of soccer allowed him to invest in his appearance and get the work done to make his teeth a little easier to look at.
His teeth went from crooked – practically jagged – and yellow to perfectly straight and perfectly white. According to the man himself, it took a lot of expensive and painful work: extractions, braces, wiring, whitening, and veneers.
A gap-toothed grin is adorable when a young lad is still in the growing stages, but once that young lad wants to be a big grown-up movie star, the look loses its popularity. Zac Efron had this issue, which is why he had to have so much work done to his smile as he grew older. With braces, bleaching, and blonding, the once-Disney star now has a perfect set of teeth.
Unlike many of the stars on this list, he didn't get veneers (unless there's something he's not telling us), which means his smile is a little more natural. His grin is still a little lopsided thanks to his lips and muscles, but that can't really be changed. Plus, it's kinda cool.
A lot of the celebs on this list have common problems like crooked teeth or stained enamel. Moore, however, had those and more – her front teeth fell out due to stress. It forced her to not only get dental work done but also needed to change up her life. Even the teeth that didn't fall out were uneven and yellow.
After plenty of work, she now has two perfect rows of shiny teeth, and she's made changes to her life to keep them in better shape. We hope she's flossing. A lot of people think that she looks better now than she did when she was younger, and her smile is a big reason why.
Most of us consider braces to be a childhood thing, but there are plenty of people who have to suffer through them during adulthood, too. Gwen Stefani is one such celebrity who wanted to make sure her teeth were aligned even though she could drink or drive. Not at the same time, of course.
Throw in some veneers and whitening, and her smile was ready to be famous. Pale skin, bright red lipstick, and a set of chompers that are practically glowing helped make it easy for people to recognize this star anywhere.
Looking at the “before” picture, you might wonder why Swift thought she needed work done – her smile looked lovely framed by the curls of her early career. She didn't intend to get work done.
During a live performance in 2013, she was a bit careless with her microphone, chipping one of her own front teeth. She had urgent dental care done to add a cap, and she also took the opportunity for a touch of straightening and whitening, which has now given her an even more perfect smile.
