14 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Had Peg Laterals (PHOTOS)

Have you noticed any changes in your favorite celebrity’s smile lately?

It’s no secret that celebrities often invest thousands of dollars to enhance their dental appearance.

 Some, as seen in past pictures, have dealt with dental issues like peg laterals and missing teeth.

While today’s A-listers may display flawless smiles, that wasn’t always the case.

Fortunately, correcting dental imperfections is now easier with a variety of available options.

Here’s a look at some of the top celebrities you didn’t know had peg laterals.

1. Zac Efron

Starting the list of A-listers with peg laterals is the talented Zac Efron. Admittedly, his dental formula is a million times better than what it used to be when he first hit the screen.

As a young actor, Zac had peg laterals and a gap that was hard to miss when smiling for the cameras.

But, now the Hollywood hunk rocks perfect teeth. It all started with teeth bonding to fill in gaps while shooting High School Musical in 2006.

2. LeAnne Rimes

LeAnne Rimes is a top Hollywood actress, singer, and songwriter. She’s perhaps most famous for suing a dentist for bad dental work in 2013. LeAnne got a bad diagnosis and claimed it affected her music career.

However, she now has gorgeous pearly whites, and gone are the peg laterals. She’s proof that good teeth can change your entire face, as she looks stunning on the red carpet.

3. Matthew Lewis

We might be forgiven for thinking Matthew Lewis had the most terrible teeth as a kid when he played Neville on Harry Porter. But, while he did have peg laterals, Matthew had to wear false teeth when featuring in all Harry Porter films.

Now, his teeth are different, and gone are the peg laterals. Matthew used a combination of braces and corrective procedures to fix his teeth.

4. Christiano Ronaldo

Footballer Christiano Ronaldo is now among the hottest men in the world, rocking great teeth and a ripped body.

But that’s a far cry from the young footballer with a missing lateral incisor, gummy smile, and peg laterals.

Christiano used ceramic braces and tooth replacements to get his winning smile. Later, he’d opt for veneers giving him a great dental formula.

5. Megan Fox

Actress Megan Fox has had her teeth done to improve her smile and appearance. She had peg laterals and required porcelain veneers to get a perfect smile.

6. Celine Dion

Legendary musician Celine Dion is no stranger to getting work done to improve her smile. As a young singer, Celine had an odd smile, peg laterals, and long incisors. She’d opt to recontour her gums and use veneers for an even smile.

7. Morgan Freeman

Looking at older pictures of A-list actor Morgan Freeman, we can see he’s had work done to improve his teeth.

Morgan had a gap in between his two front teeth, and peg laterals. The actor had it corrected using veneers that closed the gap and aligned his teeth.

8. Howie Mandel

Howie Mandel rocks a perfect and even smile when he’s a judge on America’s Got Talent. However, that’s new for the 68-year-old comedian, actor, media personality, and producer.

Howie had to get dental implants to correct issues such as peg laterals and achieve a natural smile. He’s never shy of flashing his full set now that he’s no longer missing two teeth.

9. Kirsten Dunst

Actress Kirsten Dunst has been acting since 1989 and still stuns on the red carpet. Once she had peg laterals, but Kirsten had no issues with her teeth.

Kirsten once narrated how a Hollywood producer on the set of Spider-Man took her to the dentist. She refused to get any work done at the time, but later, she’d opt for veneers that have transformed her smile.

10. Jim Carrey

Did you know that Jim Carrey had peg laterals and a chipped tooth? He explained that his chipped front tooth was a result of a friend jumping on him in grade school.

He had the tooth filled but removed the filling when playing his role on Dumb and Dumber.

Today, he has the filling back in place but won’t hesitate to remove it for better comedic effect when acting.

11. Millie Bobby Brown

Actress Millie Bobby Brown had sharp incisors and peg laterals when she starred in The Stranger Things as a child.

However, she’s had Invisalign straightening and teeth whitening to improve her smile. Millie also got porcelain veneers to improve the appearance of her two lateral teeth.

12. Miley Cyrus

Singer Miley Cyrus won her first Grammy in 2024, and she was all smiles while celebrating the great achievement.

While she now rocks a stunning set of teeth, that hasn’t always been the case. Miley got a combination of porcelain veneers for her peg laterals and porcelain crowns to achieve her gorgeous smile.

And she admits it was a good idea since it took less time than wearing braces.

13. Ed Helms

Did you know that actor Ed Helms had a dentist pull out his tooth for his role on The Hangover? He’d wake up in Las Vegas after a bender with a missing tooth.

While he’s had his teeth fixed, Ed once had peg laterals. He once lost his front tooth and got a replacement that he had removed for comedic effect.

14. Taylor Swift

Top singer Taylor Swift first won a Grammy in 2010 and has never looked back. Over the years, we’ve watched her smile change using veneers to correct peg laterals and other dental issues.

Taylor also wore braces, and rumor has it she had gum operations.
