Like thousands of other hopefuls, Niall Horan was once just a regular kid auditioning for “The X Factor.” He didn’t win, but he and a couple of other losers got picked up by a talent agent and forged into “One Direction,” who went on to become perhaps the most successful boy band since the Backstreet Boys. To help him get the pop star pretty-boy look, he got Invisalign braces to fix his crooked teeth.
It was less work than a lot of people get, and he even kept fans appraised on how his teeth were changing. With the help of some veneers, Niall now has a winning smile that has lasted long past the end of One Direction.
The name might not ring a bell, but actor Matthew Lewis played the chubby, hapless friend to the main three in the “Harry Potter” movies, and he's the proud owner of one of the greatest transformations we've seen in recent years. From an awkward kid with crooked teeth to a dreamboat with pearly whites and piercing, light eyes, you'd never know he was the one Hermione Granger froze solid in the first movie.
He has the true A-list look thanks to sparkling veneers and all the other work he's had done. He's ready for his starring roles with a grin like that one. We already know his acting skills are top-notch.
We've already seen lots of celebs that have a mess of a mouth and really needed the work done. There are also some who had perfectly reasonable teeth – just not perfect. Actress Nicole Kidman's teeth had an inward slant to them, which can lead to jaw or gum issues, but we're not going to say they looked bad with teeth like Cher's on the list.
Kidman still got a set of veneers as well as plenty of straightening done to enhance her looks and help make her into one of the classic leading ladies of our era.
We all know that Lohan was one of the legendary party girls of the new millennium. It turns out that taking certain substances and partying all night long can take a heavy toll on your teeth. Lindsay's smile had become chipped, yellow, and was decaying faster than before thanks to her lifestyle and even the coffee she drank to recover from those long nights.
Thankfully, Lohan was able to get her act together. While she made changes to avoid the same mistakes, she got a set of white veneers to help her look freshened up.
The pressure to be perfect in Hollywood is a big one, and for some reason, teeth are one of the things that people adjust to the most. Emily Blunt had a perfectly reasonable set of chompers before she got her work done – maybe a weird shape or a crooked tooth here or there, but they looked natural.
She still chose to get veneers after being surrounded by actors and actresses who have the standard pretty teeth set. However, there are some dental experts who think her natural teeth are a better fit for her – her new veneers are thick compared to her narrow, delicate features.
