You might think that supermodels are born with it all, but that just isn’t the case! Cindy Crawford had braces as a teenager in order to secure that sultry smile she’s so famous for.

This actress had slightly crooked teeth when first filming ‘Harry Potter’ and decided afterwards to get her teeth adjusted so they reflected her more mature film work in the future.

Ever since taking on the challenge of traditional braces to straighten her pearly whites out, she’s been rocking a smile to die for.

Most people are surprised to hear that one of Hollywood’s super hunks ever sported braces, but it’s true.

Some may remember the photos that surfaced in the early part of the 2000s of Tom Cruise sporting ceramic braces to help tune up his smile, going to show that even as an adult it’s never too late to fix your grin.
So whether you need just a bit of a fine tune or you want a whole dental overhaul with your teeth, you can see from these top Hollywood stars that it’s never too early or late to start enjoying a better smile.
