Niall Horan

The cherubic One Direction singer was cute (in an Irish street urchin way) with his crooked teeth, but he looks straight up hot – and more mature -- now that his braces have come off.

Tom Cruise

Consider our minds blown: Tom Cruise might be famous for his megawatt smile, but his old “mono-toothed” choppers weren’t exactly suited for Hollywood.

David and Victoria Beckham

Britain’s most famous couple, after Will and Kate, seem to have undergone similar whitening and straightening procedures. (Now, if only Victoria would serve us a gleeful, open-mouthed grin.)

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan shocked everyone in October 2011 when she showed up at an even with yellowish, decaying teeth: a far cry from the healthy white smile she flashed throughout Mean Girls. While onlookers and the media blamed her nicotine habit and unhealthy lifestyle choices, her spokesperson offered no explanation for the star’s appearance. Lindsay ended up skipping a court-mandated anti-shoplifting class to see the dentist, emerging in public a couple weeks later with a newly made-over smile.

TVXQ’s Yunho

While the Asian entertainment industry is generally more forgiving than Hollywood about poor teeth, that hasn’t stopped some of our favourite Korean stars from making a trip to the dentist. TVXQ’s Yunho sported crooked front teeth and a prominent snaggletooth on both sides of his mouth back in the day, but has since remade himself as a whole new man thanks to his porcelain veneers.

Korean stars aren’t immune to the horrors of puberty. The former Girls’ Generation member was also a former member of the brace face club, having sported a smile less straight and white than the one she has now.

Kim Bum

The greatest advantage to Kim Bum’s new teeth? The emergence of his signature dimple, which looks about a hundred times more prominent with his movie star smile.

G-Dragon

The BIG BANG heartthrob has won hearts all over the world with his cheeky smile, but it hasn’t always looked so polished. Is it just us, or does G-Dragon look even more youthful with his new teeth?

Korean actor Yoo Seung-ho might have looked adorable as a snaggle-toothed child, but we have a hard time imagining him without his twinkly new smile.

Ronaldo’s dentist is basically a miracle worker. He looks 10 years younger with those new teeth!

Who knew that Neville Longbottom would grow up to be the hottest student at Hogwarts? Matthew Lewis’ spectacular before-and-after is practically an advertisement for dental work.

So there you have it: proof that getting your teeth fixed can be even more effective than makeup or plastic surgery. But a bright and healthy smile isn’t just about looking more attractive – without daily maintenance, even a young and healthy set of teeth can begin looking like they belong to a 60-year-old smoker (much like Lindsay Lohan’s did). And if your teeth are slightly crooked, like ours are, then you’ll know how important it is to have a quality toothbrush to clean between all the little crevices

Regardless of whether braces are in your long-term plans, we’d recommend improving your daily teeth-cleaning regime now, starting with upgrading your cheap toothbrush to one that’s a little more powerful. Check out Oral-B’s Professional Care 3000, which uses oscillation and pulsation movements for 3-D all-over cleaning. No gap, however tiny, will go uncovered!
