5 Celebrities Who Have Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular replacement for missing teeth. These titanium screws are inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. Once there, they spend the next four to six months fusing with the jawbone. This is what makes dental implants so durable and long-lasting. Dental implants are a great way to repair gapped grins. Even some celebrities have them! Read on to learn about four celebrities who have dental implants to thank for their full, beautiful smiles.

#1: Ed Helms

Ed Helms is an actor who’s well known for his roles in the popular sitcom “The Office” and “The Hangover” movie series. In “The Hangover,” the gapped grin his character had wasn’t a product of movie magic, special effects, or makeup. Helms got dental implants placed several years ago, so he achieved the desired look by removing the restorations attached to them.

#2: Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson had a long, successful career as a professional boxer. He then decided to try his hand at acting, both in movies and TV shows. Throughout his boxing career, Tyson lost several teeth. He later decided to undergo a variety of dental procedures, including having dental implants placed.

#3: Chris Rock

Chris Rock is known for being a successful actor and stand-up comedian, but he’s also a talented writer, director, and producer. Rock had worn and protruding top teeth when he was younger, which negatively impacted his confidence. He later decided to have some dental work done to raise his confidence and improve the look of his pearly whites, including veneers and dental implants.

#4: Christie Brinkley

Several years ago, supermodel, entrepreneur, and actress Christie Brinkley was in a helicopter accident. This resulted in two broken molars, which she later decided to have replaced with dental implants. Since then, Brinkley has spoken very highly of the procedure and has gushed over how natural her restorations look and feel.

#5: Nicolas Cage

Nicolas Cage is an actor and filmmaker who is well known for his eccentric performances. He often goes to the next level to fit the image of certain characters. For his role in the movie “Birdy,” Cage took things even further by having his teeth extracted. He did this without anesthesia so he could fully get into the mindset of the character he was playing. Tooth extractions can’t be reversed, so Cage eventually had the missing teeth replaced with dental implants.

As you can see, even celebrities need some help with their smiles from time to time. If you’re interested in having dental implants placed, speak with your dentist to be on your way to a full, beautiful smile!
