Like some of the other leading guys on this list, Nicolas Cage was a lot more…rugged…before he got some work done. The dentists did what they could, and it seemed to work out in his favor. Before he got better teeth, he played a lot of wild and crazy characters, so having crooked teeth actually worked out in his favor.
Of course, he wanted to make the jump to a big star. He wanted to broaden his roles and splurged on some expensive cosmetic surgery, including braces and veneers. It certainly helped – Nic has never lacked for roles.
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, yellowed, 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 freshen 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.
There are few women that have the kind of natural, glowing beauty that Blake Lively possesses. People in and out of Hollywood and around the world are green with envy of her beauty, and according to her, it didn't even take surgery. While some think she might have gotten a nose job, aging sometimes thins out the nose as the round look of childhood disappears.
Even teeth-wise, all that Lively has had to do to get that winning smile we all know and love with some whitening. And who is strong enough among us to resist the call of some whiter teeth?
It's a little more difficult to find pictures of Victoria Beckham, once known as Posh Spice, while she's smiling than you might think. Since the very beginning, she's been known for looking her best, but even she needed a little bit of dental work to make sure her smile looked just like everyone else's. They were unevenly sized.
After the Spice Girls called it quits, she spent something like forty thousand dollars on cosmetic surgery to make sure she had the high-fashion look of a designer. That's quite the sum, but to a name like her, it's not that much – and it looks like the work was worth it.
