Have you ever watched a movie or looked at a magazine and thought, “Wow, that celebrity really has great teeth!” If so, you might be surprised to find out that many celebrities have had their teeth enhanced in more ways than you’d think. 

As experts in the art of the smile, we're pretty sure we've found a few celebrities that might have just had a dental implant treatment. Here are our most likely picks.


Ed Helms

Ed Helms is perhaps best known for his role as Stu in The Hangover, an unfortunate dentist who pulls his own tooth during a night of Las Vegas debauchery.

What you might not know is that Ed had dental implants placed decades ago, and had it removed temporarily for this role.

Mike Tyson

You can imagine that over the course of his boxing career, Mike Tyson has lost more than one tooth to his opponents over the years.

Interestingly enough, Mike’s tiger (used in The Hangover, featuring a toothless Ed Helms) is responsible for knocking out his famed ear biting gold tooth, which has since been replaced with a dental implant. 

Christie Brinkley

Supermodel Christie Brinkley was involved in a helicopter crash in 1994, breaking a few teeth in the process. She has spoken publicly about her dental implants, gushing over how she loves the natural look and feel.

Hey, that's what we've been saying, Christie!

Kathy Ireland

Kathy Ireland is another model who broke several teeth in an accident, this time while horsing around at her home. After having her broken teeth replaced with dental implants, she credits the experience with giving her the drive to focus on her business.

Gary Busey

As one of the most eccentric and outspoken actors in Hollywood, Gary Busey has been known for his oversized teeth for decades.

In 1988, he was involved in a motorcycle accident that did substantial damage to his face and teeth. He opted to keep his trademark oversized grin during reconstruction, showing that there are indeed dental implants to fit every mouth.

Chris Rock

Not much is known about why Chris Rock opted for dental implants, just that he used his Lethal Weapon earnings to do it!
