When it comes to smiles, Tom Cruise ’s teeth might take the cake — unless you look very closely . More than three decades in to his career, Tom is still one of the hottest actors in showbiz. He’s starring in the upcoming film Mission: Impossible — Fallout , scheduled for release on July 27, and we know his impeccable acting chops and winning good looks will make the movie a great one. No matter how phenomenal he is as an actor, we can’t help but notice that Tom’s smile consists of a rather odd middle tooth .

Don’t believe us? Check out photos of Tom Cruise’s middle tooth!

While he has amazing pearly whites, Tom’s 100-watt grin has one tooth that’s just a bit out of place. You can see from the photo that his teeth aren’t exactly symmetrical with the center of his face. Many have noticed that the 55-year-old actor’s right front tooth is just a tad askew, and has been widely referred to as his “middle tooth” for quite a while now.

Tom has certainly put in the time and effort to achieve the smile he has today. At age 40, just after his split from Nicole Kidman the Hollywood vet got braces to address an overbite and misalignment problems. He proudly showed them off while walking the red carpet at the 2002 premiere of Minority Report .

Tom has never been shy about flaunting his less-than-perfect smile. When he played Steve Randle in 1983’s The Outsiders , a young Tom voluntarily removed the cap from a front tooth that had been chipped by a flying puck in a hockey match. We’re impressed with his willingness to do anything for his job, even if it puts a flaw out in the public eye.

At the Jerry Bruckheimer Hand and Footprint Ceremony, Tom Cruise sported a set of beautifully-shaped white chompers. He attended the Hollywood event in 2010, 25 years after his role in The Outsiders , and we couldn’t be more impressed with the transformation his teeth went under.

At the Rock of Ages premiere in 2012, the Hollywood veteran showed off a new haircut and his well-known grin. The cupid’s bow of his lip gives a good indication of the asymmetry in his smile. Tom has never stopped gracing the silver screen and landing iconic roles since his career launched at 19.

Last October, Tom attended a benefit screening of the film he starred in, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back . He came out to Knoxville to support Variety – The Children’s Charity of Eastern Tennessee, and was smiling big during his red carpet appearance. Some fans also noticed that, aside from his middle tooth, his left incisor appeared to be bigger than his right one.

tom cruise front tooth

During an interview at The Mummy fan event in New York City, Tom flashed a smile showing off his pearly whites. You can tell from looking up close that his right incisor lines up with his nose. Despite this slight imperfection, his smile has come a long way from his days playing the part of Steve Randle. While Tom has never come out and stated exactly what he had done, many dentists speculate that, on top of his braces, he received porcelain veneers and most likely had whitening treatments.

There’s a reason Tom Cruise’s smile is irresistible: his confidence.

Despite his dental imperfection, Tom has never lacked confidence. In 1985, only a couple of years after his career took off, the genetically blessed star explained why he decided to embrace his newfound sex symbol status. “It doesn’t bother me at all,” he told Entertainment Tonight at the time. “I mean, I don’t, like, resent it. I’m not tortured at night by it. You know, I’m actually very happy that people, you know, think enough of my work to feel that way.” His choice to embrace the public perception of his appearance has only driven success to his career, even now in 2018.

Many fans are also surprised to find out that Tom is actually only 5 feet 7 inches tall, which isn’t the “typical size” of someone you’d think would play Jack Reacher. In a previous interview, Tom was forced to open up about how his unconventional body type for superhero roles. “You know, [author Lee Child] created the character,” he said. “I had my own opinion that I didn’t say to Lee and then he came back and pretty much reflected what I had felt about it. But had he said ‘look I’d rather not,’ I would not have played the character.”

When it comes to smiles, Tom Cruise ‘ s teeth might take the cake. More than three decades into his career, the action star — who has starred in some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters , including Mission: Impossible – Fallout and Top Gun   — is still one of the hottest stars, and it’s all thanks to his impeccable acting chops and winning good looks.

But no matter how phenomenal he is as an actor, fans can’t help but notice that Tom’s 100-watt grin has one tooth that’s just a bit out of place. In fact, you can see from photos that his teeth aren’t exactly symmetrical with the center of his face.

He proudly showed them off while walking the red carpet at the 2002 premiere of Minority Report .

The  Jerry Maguire actor has never been shy about flaunting his less-than-perfect smile. When he played Steve Randle in 1983’s The Outsiders , a young Tom voluntarily removed the cap from a front tooth that had been chipped by a flying puck in a hockey match.

I’m not tortured at night by it. You know, I’m actually very happy that people, you know, think enough of my work to feel that way.”

Fans have never seemed to mind his unique grin. Since he was thrust into the spotlight in the early ‘80s, Tom has remained one of Hollywood’s hunkiest actors. He stepped back into his role of Captain Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in the 2022 film Top Gun: Maverick . The action movie was a huge hit at the box office, becoming the New York native’s first film to gross $1 billion worldwide, per People .

Fans could not help but notice Tom’s timeless look in the film, sparking major social media attention along with his costars Miles Teller and Glen Powell . He promoted the sequel on red carpets all over the world with his dashing looks, proving that he is ageless. Of course, he rocked his best accessory — his smile!

Although it doesn’t seem like it, the Edge of Tomorrow actor — who was just 20 years old at the time — actually started off his career with a set of chompers that were very discolored and extremely unaligned. According to Heightline , Tom initially fixed this issue with teeth whitening and alignment procedures.

Considering Tom has one of the most famous smiles in the world, the actor didn’t want to draw attention to his face while trying to improve his teeth around 2001. Luckily, he was able to opt for invisible braces with ceramic brackets.

It wasn’t long before Tom was out and about smiling like normal!

What Really Happened To Tom Cruise's Teeth?

Tom Cruise smiling

When Tom Cruise emerged in Hollywood in the '80s , he quickly became not only one of the industry's most prominent leading men but also one of the decade's most recognizable sex symbols. Apparently, Cruise took that status very seriously. Even before breaking through with 1983's "Risky Business," Cruise had always been rather conscious of how he looked in front of the camera, his old agent Eileen Berlin told the Daily Mail in February 2022. "Tommy had many faces — you see it in the photos," the retired executive said.

According to Berlin, with whom Cruise lived when he was starting out at 18, Cruise relentlessly prepared before photo sessions, in an effort to emphasize what he considered to be his strongest features. "We had a mirrored wall and he'd walk around in his little jockey shorts and nothing else and ball up his fists and flex his biceps and admire himself in the mirror," she described. While he knew he was handsome, Cruise was self-conscious about his height . "He said he would like some shoes that would lift him up a bit," she said.

Cruise has reportedly gone to great lengths to conceal his 5 foot, 7 inch stature, often making producers apply different techniques to make him appear as tall as his co-stars, according to Refinery29 . In light of Cruise's perceived vanity, rumors about plastic surgery and other corrective procedures has followed him throughout his career. That even includes Cruise's smile, with many contending his grin has changed over the years.

Everyone has an opinion about Tom Cruise's front teeth

Tom Cruise's smile was a big part of the boyish charm that made him so popular in the '80s and '90s. But his wasn't what most would call a perfect smile. As seen in the photo above, Cruise's front teeth aren't aligned with the center of his face, giving the impression Cruise has a "mono-tooth," as  Metro described. "The mid point between his two central upper teeth (the dental midline) did not match the midline of his face, giving him the appearance of a single prominent front tooth," said Dr. Asif Chatoo of  The London Lingual Orthodontic Clinic .

Some believe the trait was less pronounced in his early career , leading experts to conjecture that Cruise has undergone upper jaw surgery, Showbiz Cheat Sheet noted. Additionally, the perceived changes in color and texture of Cruise's teeth has given way to theories he has used porcelain veneers, according to Life & Style magazine. Others have also suggested he has whitened his teeth, but, honestly, who in showbiz hasn't? It was Hollywood that popularized the practice to begin with, U.K. clinic St. Peter's Lodge  noted.

But, just as Cruise has never addressed his supposed insecurity about his height, he also doesn't really comment on his smile. The only concrete evidence we have of anything he's done comes from the 2002 "Minority Report" premiere, where he was photographed wearing braces that he got to help correct an overbite. "My mouth wasn't closing properly," he said (via  Time ).

Tom Cruise inspired cosmetic surgery rumors as recently as 2021

Tom Cruise's looks drew unwanted public attention in October 2021 when he attended a baseball game, Page Six reported. The "Mission Impossible" star's face looked swollen, leading many to wonder whether Cruise had had cosmetics procedures done or gained weight. Social media users took to Twitter to mock his appearance, drawing comparisons to Norm MacDonald, who had recently died . "Norm macdonald being reincarnated into tom cruise is one of his best bits ever," one wrote .

However, many others defended Cruise while criticizing the normalization of online body-shaming. "I had hoped people learnt to not comment on men's bodies after mocking Zac Efron for gaining weight and supposedly being 'ugly,' despite knowing his history of eating disorders, addiction and body image struggles," one user tweeted . "Leave Tom Cruise and his face alone. People are allowed to change."

But because Cruise had been spotted over the summer with his so-called normal face and it seemingly returned to what fans were used to shortly after, experts hypothesized the swelling could've been caused by cosmetics treatments. "Tom definitely looks swollen and puffy, which could be due to filler, post procedure swelling or weight gain," a practitioner told The U.S. Sun . Some social media users had an issue with this type of coverage, which seemed to disregard the possibility Cruise's swelling could be due to medical reasons. "He looks like he's on prednisone to me," a Twitter user pointed out, referring to the commonly prescribed corticosteroid.

Smile Tom! Let’s See That Gorgeous Red Carpet Grin…

Tom Cruise Teeth: The Real Story Behind Tom Cruise’s Unique Toothy Grin plus his original teeth.

There’s not a single person in the world devoid of flaws.

Even multi-millionaire and A-list actor Tom Cruise is no exception – with his ‘former’ less than perfect smile.

But, Hollywood stars do have a huge stack of cash and a wide variety of resources at their disposal.

Think movies, endorsements, business ventures, etc.

Once they enter the world of stardom, they feel the need to “upgrade” their looks to fit in with the other stars.

Tom Cruise

A makeover, if you will.

Tom is someone most people have looked up to for his entire career .

Ever since he was young, when he first started acting way back in the 1980s, he grabbed everyone’s attention.

The effortless charms he owes in part to his good looks and innocent Tom Cruise Smile.

But let’s face it. Turns out, he didn’t always have that million-dollar smile.

Many celebs are born with imperfections in the tooth department and Cruise is one of them.

And the good news?

Well, he has plenty of money so he was able to undergo cosmetic dentistry and have all his choppers all aligned nicely.

If you want to know why he – and many other people – feel the need to do this, read on, my friend.

Here are some facts about Tom Cruise’s teeth – and a couple of photos to boot.

Let’s get started.

Tom Cruise Original Teeth

Let me set the record straight.

Tom Cruise isn’t perfect.

Yes, he was born with poor teeth alignment. The cupid’s bow of his lip shows the former asymmetry in his young smile.

Tom Cruise’s unique teeth weren’t always aligned as beautifully as the way you see him in red carpet events.

To achieve that so-called “million-dollar smile,” young Tom had to put on braces.

Tom Cruise  Teeth

…and we all know how excruciating that is.

Turns out , he underwent cosmetic dentistry just like many others. For what, you may ask?

Well, you know why.

Tom Cruise’s Smile – to achieve that beautiful smile he so wanted to have – opted to undergo the procedures early in his career.

Wise choice, I reckon!

That’s why you may be shocked to see the photo above.

Well, as cliche as it may sound, we can’t always have everything.

The procedures involved whitening, bonding, fixed bridges, crowns, veneers, and dental implants. He endured all these for the sake of having that “perfect smile.”

Not to mention, it’s one pricey endeavor!

Tom Cruise Middle Tooth (Or One Strange Tooth)

Tom Cruise  Teeth

What’s with your middle tooth, Tom?

One smile is all it takes to know how long – and how big – your front gnashers are.

And just like everything else that makes each human unique, your front top teeth will differ from one another.

Try smiling in front of the mirror. Does one front tooth protrude in a different direction? Does it have discoloration? If you’re a non-celeb, well, that likely won’t matter one tiny bit.

But apparently, if you’re an A-list celebrity – let alone the Tom Cruise – well, it matters…a lot!

Now, Tom Cruise has a set of choppers with the “right” color, size, and shape (at least according to his stardom’s standards).

However, it wasn’t always that way.

See that one front tooth over there?

If you take a picture of Tom and examine the center of his face closely, you’ll notice he has a big white middle tooth. Yup, there it is, front and center!

Bear in mind, though, in the celebrity world, having the best smile and fangs is essential.

…especially among singers, actors, players, models, etc.

Celebrities have to have that million-dollar smile.

That’s why most, if not all, move mountains to fix whatever needs to be fixed – tooth or not.

As unpleasant as it might seem, Tom Cruise middle tooth had always been referred to as a horrible “unitooth” or “mono-tooth.”

The actor’s good looks weren’t always complemented with perfectly-designed choppers.

There, I said it!

Tom Cruise Teeth Have Dental Veneers

When the Top Gun superstar was younger, he wanted to achieve better-looking teeth and a perfect grin with discolored teeth a thing of the past. That’s why he wore braces and dental veneers.

If you don’t know, dental veneers are thin custom-made shells used to cover the surface of the front upper teeth.

Porcelain veneers are often recommended by dentists for a good teeth makeover.

When he received porcelain veneers his damaged, disfigured, and stained choppers were now be a thing of the past in just a snap of a finger! 

Tom flashed his sparkly whites for the first time at a Hollywood event after his whitening treatments.

Tom Cruise  Teeth

Ha! Sounds good to me. Sign me up for that!

As you can see in the photo above, he’s already flaunting that iconic Tom Cruise ear-to-ear smile.

The smile most people have gotten to witness and love about him.

Tom Cruise’s Invisible Braces

Tom Cruise Teeth 05

No wonder they’re called “invisible braces.”

Later in his career, Tom finally decided to have his misaligned tooth set straight. He jumped onto the braces bandwagon if you couldn’t catch my drift.

In 2002, while at the premiere of his movie Minority Report , fans were shocked to find Tom Cruise with braces.

He only had them for a few months, though.

And after all, they helped him achieve that picture-perfect smile.

He had regular wires with invisible brackets to disguise his teeth alignment procedure. But, of course, every hawk-eyed fan noticed anyway.

Tom Cruise Had Invisalign Teeth Straightening Procedure

The Invisalign straightening procedure involves having removable, transparent plastic aligners.

Most celebrities choose this procedure.

Got you scratching your head too? It’s pricey, I know!

…but anything for the glitz and glamour, right?

I mean, would you want to be photographed looking unflattering?

No? I thought so too.

Sure, they’re much more expensive and much more convenient than regular wire braces. That’s the catch!

The good thing about them, though, is he can sport that stunning look in red carpet events without having to awkwardly smile for the cameras.

…something that you might do for the sake of hiding those wires.

Also, you can remove these plastic aligners anytime you feel the need to.

More Middle Tooth Evidence

Tom Cruise  Teeth

A lot of people don’t believe Tom Cruise’s teeth ever underwent a makeover.

Some fanatics even go to the extent of trying to prove the claims to be lies.

First off, who on Earth has totally natural pearly white gnashers ?

If you have, well, props to you!

In most photos circulating the Internet, you can see that Tom’s teeth are bizarrely white!

Ordinary choppers can never be so white without professional help.

Other than that, they should be in tandem with someone’s complexion.

Smile! Show me those famous ‘Tom Cruise Teeth’.

A tad too white, if I may say.

Having a natural smile means having the bottom of the top front teeth equal in length.

However, in Cruise’s case, his two front teeth appear like crowns as they look much more dense compared to a normal set.

His front tooth, after being straightened, lies exactly at the center of his face.

…which is actually off!

For years and years, memes on Tom Cruise’s front tooth have circulated online, causing some “bashers” to call him out for having a “mono-tooth” or “uni-tooth.”

Yes, you read that right! Uni-tooth. Shame!

Tom, despite all his efforts, still has unaligned teeth, but that’s okay.

Others are quick to say he might have had a major upper jaw operation that resulted in a significant shift in his tooth’s alignment.

I mean, who knows, right?

While Cruise has never jumped in to comment on his dental work, this leaves us with just raw speculation.

Well, all I can say is, “Smile, Tom! Never mind the outsiders.” They’re called outsiders for a reason.

Conclusion: Tom Cruise’s Teeth: The Real Story

There you have it! Everything you need to know about Tom Cruise’s Smile and how he overcame his overbite, misalignment problems and general dental imperfection so we could see him smiling big like never before!

We’ve laid out for you the many reasons why Tom is smiling widely from one ear to the other.

Do you know of other celebs that underwent major reconstruction too?

Did they ever come close to Tom Cruise’s A-list status?

Tom Cruise's teeth before and after

How Tom Cruise Got His Teeth Done 

Being one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, Tom Cruise is no stranger to rumours and controversies.

Tom Cruise’s teeth have been at the centre of it from time and time again. Known for his dashingly good looks and versatility as an actor, the megastar is still flying high even as he approaches his 60s. 

Even though the Top Gun star’s looks have changed dramatically throughout the years, it’s his teeth that are always left people with a lot of questions.

So, let’s find out what’s really going on with them. 

Who Is Tom Cruise?

Thomas Cruise Mapother IV was born in 1962 in New York and later took on the stage name Tom Cruise.

Since his father was a part of the Canadian Armed Forces, he grew up in Canada, where his interest in acting was first cultivated.

Dubbed “Hollywood’s last real movie star,” he is the stuff of legends.

Tom Cruise

He’s been gracing the big screen since the 80s, smashing out one hit after another, not letting any of his personal life drama or even his age deter him.

Despite being on top of his game, he has managed to stay elusive, not accounting for the display of some “bizarre” moments here and there.

It was at the age of 18 that he seriously started to pursue acting, for which he first went to New York and then Los Angeles (LA) – synonymous with Hollywood itself. 

Tom Cruise’s Professional Career

Tom got his first role in Brooke Shields’ Endless Love as Billy. However, he went on to play more prominent roles in Taps and The Outsiders . But it was his breakout role in Top Gun that got everyone’s attention.

From there on, it was an upward trajectory for the action star, who went out to star in the critically acclaimed Rain Man, Risky Business, The Color of Money, Born on the Fourth of July, Jerry Maguire , and Magnolia , among many others.  

He has also been a part of some of the biggest movie franchises, the most successful of them being Mission Impossible , in which he has done many life-endangering stunts as his character Ethan Hunt.

While Mission Impossible 8 is still in the works, he recently starred in part 2 of the cult classic Top Gun . 

It goes without saying that this Hollywood A-lister is one of the highest-paid and highest-grossing actors of all time.

He has also won Golden Globes and received nominations for the Academy Awards and British Academy Film Awards. More recently, he was given an honorary Palme d’Or at the Cannes film festival 2022. 

Does Tom Cruise Have A Tooth Gap?

From a very young age, Tom Cruise’s teeth weren’t exactly “Hollywood dazzling.” They were misaligned and chipped with a pronounced overbite . However, before making his way to Hollywood, he got some dental work done.

We know that was the case because reportedly, he removed the “cap” (another name for dental crown ) from one of his front teeth (probably the one on the right) to add to his character of Steve Randle in The Outsiders . 

It is believed that his teeth were badly damaged as a result of a sports injury involving a hockey puck. The actor did play hockey when he was young, so it’s possible that he knocked his teeth out as a result of that. 

A missing tooth on the left side of his upper jaw is also the reason why he has the “middle tooth.” His teeth have shifted to the left, which is why his dental midline is also to the left.

This is actually something that happens when people are missing their teeth. The surrounding teeth shift into the space left behind, which can make them misaligned and crooked.

There are also some other stories about Tom Cruise’s teeth. One involves the former editor-in-chief of The New York Post, Col Allan. Apparently, Tom Cruise’s front teeth fell out when he was having drinks with the journalist. 

Allan recounts being “speechless” because of the incident.

At that time, Cruise told Allan that he had lost his teeth after one of his children’s heels struck them while he was playing with them. While the actor had reportedly “pleaded” that the information not be made public, that, unfortunately, is not the case anymore.  

How Did Tom Cruise Fix His Teeth?

It is believed that the Mission Impossible star had crowns on his teeth. However, it is possible for people to get both crowns and veneers at the same time.

What will suit them better will depend on the condition of their teeth, their location and the severity of their problem. But veneers can also effectively hide the teeth, although it only covers their front surface. 

Other than that, Tom Cruise may also have had a teeth whitening procedure.

Despite him having a “unitooth” and not the traditionally “perfect” teeth, there are many people who admire his million-dollar smile.

And the reason why it dazzles so maybe teeth whitening treatments. 

Keep in mind that dental restorations like crowns and veneers cannot be whitened. You have to take care of your teeth.

And for them to not look too white and stand out from the rest, many people get teeth whitening procedures done. 

Did Tom Cruise Have Teeth Surgery?

Tom Cruise’s teeth have undergone a variety of changes during the course of his career. As mentioned before, he had dental crowns at the time of The Outsiders .

Dental crowns usually last for 10-15 years, so he would have needed them replaced. Other than that, his wearing braces at the 2002 premiere of Minority Report is the most widely circulated evidence of him getting dental work done.

Tom Cruise 2002 braces

He had ceramic braces at the time since they blend in more with the natural teeth.

From his pictures, you can see that the brackets on his teeth are transparent. Although there’s something else to see if you closely look at his photos from that time: his gums. They appear even. 

However, if you look at the photos of Tom Cruise’s teeth now, the gum tissue on his left central incisor is more than that on his right central incisor.

Tom Cruise teeth 2003

The size of the tooth has also changed. The right tooth is bigger than the left one. 

Tom Cruises teeth in 2015

It is possible that the actor had a crown lengthening or gingivectomy procedure in later years.

Some people need these before getting dental crowns. Gingivectomy treatment involves the removal of gum tissue above the tooth so that more of its structure is exposed.

This provides a greater surface area to the crown for bonding and anchorage. It may be the reason why his gum line is not even anymore and why the size of his one tooth is now bigger than before. 

Does Tom Cruise Have T eeth Veneers?

It’s more likely that Tom Cruise has dental crowns instead of veneers. That’s because, unlike crowns, veneers only cover the front surface of the teeth.

And considering how damaged his tooth was, Tom Cruise’s dentist might have also recommended him a crown to protect the underlying tooth (provided it’s still there).

Tom Cruises teeth in 2018

Tom Cruise’s veneers wouldn’t have been able to do that as effectively. Although if he did get veneers, Tom Cruise’s veneer teeth would have looked just as natural (not considering the misalignment).

Has Tom Cruise Ever Said Anything About His Teeth?

Tom Cruise remains elusive to this day. The actor hasn’t confirmed or denied anything about his teeth.

We only know that he had work done from his pictures and the fact that he very publicly got braces at the age of 40.

There are many rumours about the Minority Report star that he hasn’t ever said anything about. 

Despite being in the spotlight for more than 40 years, there isn’t much that people know about him. There was a time when people thought that he had a rhinoplasty or nose job.

However, in an interview with Playboy Magazine, he made it clear that it wasn’t the case and “never would” be. 

Did Tom Cruise Seek the Right Dental Procedures?

As mentioned before, Tom Cruise does have a million-dollar smile. His dentists would have tried their best to make what they could out of his situation.

It may not have been possible for him to undergo more invasive and extensive procedures because of the time constraints his career put on him. He has constantly been in the spotlight since the 80s. 

That said, the actor’s midline could have been better if he had had an implant after he had lost his tooth.

The implants would have acted as a substitute for the natural tooth and not allowed the surrounding teeth to shift. Plus, dental implants Turkey would cost him a little.

With a crown placed on top of the titanium screw, Tom Cruise’s smile teeth would have looked even more glamorous since his midline would have been at the centre of his face. 

Concluding Remarks 

Tom Cruise’s teeth have been the subject of much debate and discussion by his fans. His teeth certainly deviate from the Hollywood norm. However, looking back at his photos, you can see that from a very young age, Tom Cruise’s teeth alignment was not normal. 

Of course, that would have been a problem once he started appearing in big movies, so he got his teeth fixed through cosmetic restorations like crowns or veneers or both.

Still, Tom Cruise’s dental midline (the parting line between the two front teeth) is shifted to the left. This has been the case from the very beginning and remains so to this day.

His dentists would have tried their best to do what they could with his teeth in a short amount of time, and his smile does look great.

Tom Cruise’s Dental Journey — What’s Up With His Middle Tooth?

' src=

Tom Cruise has been flashing his classic cocky grin for decades — but have you noticed that it’s misaligned? As Cruise bursts back into the spotlight with Top Gun: Maverick , we’re still wondering about his mysterious “middle tooth.”

Videos by Rare

A hockey accident.

tom cruise teeth center

Long before Tom Cruise became  an ever-bankable action star , he was Steve Randle in  The Outsiders . And, amidst a cast full of fresh-faced brat pack hunks , it’s his unique set of chompers that set the young actor apart.

Cruise was injured in a hockey accident when he was young — hit by a flying puck — which left his front tooth chipped. And when filming The Outsiders , he decided to remove the cap that covered the crack. The result was purposefully unattractive, as Cruise meant to emulate his dirt-poor greaser character. And though The Outsiders was Cruise’s third movie, the 1983 film marked the first noticeable showcase for his unique mouth.

Corrective Procedures

As Tom Cruise’s career progressed, it’s clear that he received some orthodontic treatments. In addition to getting the original chip filled in, his teeth were whitened and straightened. Famously, in 2002, the then-40-year-old donned adult braces at the Minority Report premiere. Twenty years on, it may seem shocking; less noticeable options like Invisalign are now quite common. But for the time, Cruise’s bracket-less upper braces were actually a subtle choice.

tom cruise teeth center

Still, even after braces, Cruise’s signature smile was not quite perfect. His midline is off, creating the appearance of a so-called “middle tooth.” In the video above, a doctor from Premier Orthodontics breaks it down.

The average person has seven teeth on each side on each of their midline. But if you count Cruise’s teeth, it’s apparent that he’s missing the second pre-molar on his left side. (That would be the third tooth from the back.) Naturally, then, when Cruise lost his baby tooth the teeth around it would slide in toward that space… resulting in a midline that’s shifted roughly half-a-tooth toward the left.

And it’s not so uncommon — roughly 3% of the population has a missing tooth.

But since Tom Cruise is, well, Tom Cruise, the obvious next question is… Why doesn’t he get it fixed? The man has an estimated net worth of $600 million! But those options would require another, a longer period of more intense braces.

Tom Cruise’s Adult Braces

Open-coiled springs are one option. The small springs could be wedged into the braces, around the missing premolar, to slowly open up space for a dental implant to be added. In all, the process would take around two years. And two years as a metal mouth is a lot for a man who’s bringing in hundreds of millions at the box office — at age 59!

Regardless of the alignment of his teeth, or his missing premolar, one thing is for sure: Tom Cruise has the smile of a movie star.

The Story Behind Tom Cruise’s Unique Teeth And Smile

Find out more about how Tom Cruise got his signature smile.

Tom Cruise has long enjoyed A-list Hollywood hunk status. From Top Gun to the Mission: Impossible series, he’s one of the few actors whom men want to be and women want to be with.

Perhaps that’s why he never hesitates to flash a mile-wide grin in front of cameras. However, if you’re a stickler for details, you may have noticed that Tom Cruise’s teeth aren’t exactly perfect. Experts suspect that his bright smile is a result of major dental work.

Here’s what we really know about Tom Cruise’s smile, and how he might have achieved it.

Tom Cruise’s Acting Career

Tom Cruise in Risky Business

(Warner Bros.)

In 1983, Cruise earned his breakout role in the coming-of-age film Risky Business . The film kick-started a long career as a leading man with range. Cruise could easily shift gears, playing a bad-boy heartthrob ( Top Gun ), a heartbreaking war veteran ( Born on the Fourth of July ), and a sci-fi hero ( War of the Worlds ) with equal gusto.

But his role as a super-spy Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible launched Cruise into the highest echelon of stardom. The franchise has grossed over $3.5 billion to date and is rated as the 16th highest-grossing film series of all time.

There is no question that Cruise’s good looks and charisma play a huge part in his success. Some outlets estimate that the actor has a net worth as high as $600 million . It wouldn’t be a shock to learn that he’s tweaked his appearance over the years to maintain a top spot in Hollywood’s pantheon.

What’s Up With Tom Cruise’s Teeth?

The earliest giveaway of Tom Cruise’s imperfect teeth is in the 1983 movie The Outsiders . To fit the role of working-class greaser Steve Randle, Cruise voluntarily removed a cap while filming (his front tooth had been chipped from a flying hockey puck—ouch!)

Tom Cruise in The Outsiders

His chompers were also anything but pearly white. Check out his earliest roles in the 1980s and you’ll notice that his teeth are discolored with a yellow hue. However, it’s unlikely that Cruise turned to drugstore whitening strips to solve the problem. Dental experts believe that he had porcelain veneers applied for a fast makeover.

And who could forget Cruise’s brace-face era? At the 2002 premiere of Minority Report , the actor proudly flashed his mega-watt smile on the red carpet, revealing a set of wire-bound upper teeth. We credit him for being carefree about his efforts at self-improvement.

Tom Cruise’s Misaligned Smile

One particular flaw in Tom Cruise’s smile that people seem to obsess over is its misalignment. Look closely and you’ll notice that his teeth shift off-center. The result? The appearance of a “unitooth” that lines up dead-center with his cupid’s bow (it’s actually his right front tooth). To make matters worse, it’s significantly larger than his other front tooth, which draws attention to the asymmetry.

But braces, veneers, and caps—you name it, he’s probably done it—haven’t managed to fix this one issue. And that’s probably fine by him. As we all know, Tom Cruise’s teeth have hardly stood in the way of his fame. He’s already sealed his reputation as a Hollywood success story. We also suspect there are plenty of people who’d overlook a dental quirk to nab a date with him.

Unraveling the Mystery of Tom Cruise's Teeth

From his dazzling smile to his daring stunts, Tom Cruise is an undeniably captivating figure. One aspect of his persona that has piqued the curiosity of many is his unique set of Tom Cruise teeth. What’s the story behind those pearly whites, and how have they transformed over the years? Let’s delve into this fascinating dental journey!

Tom Cruise

Key Takeaways

  • Tom Cruise’s iconic smile was caused by a sports injury!
  • His commitment to personal growth & improvement led him to wear ceramic braces at 40, resulting in his dazzling trademark asymmetrical smile.
  • Tom Cruise’s signature grin has been an integral part of his success as an actor, Wow!

The Origins of Tom Cruise's Unique Smile

Tom Cruise’s teeth have been a topic of intrigue since the beginning of his career. Young Tom’s original set of chompers were far from perfect, with misaligned and discolored teeth due to a sports injury. This less than perfect smile was on full display in his early roles, such as Steve Randle in “The Outsiders”.

The injury caused a noticeable shift in his dental midline, with his central upper teeth not aligning with the center of his face. What was the source of this peculiar misalignment?

The Impact of a Sports Injury

Sports injuries can have various exciting impacts on teeth, including:

  • Tooth fractures
  • Tooth intrusion
  • Temporomandibular joint dislocation
  • Missing tooth, which may require orthodontic treatment, especially when it involves the two central upper teeth

In Tom Cruise’s case, a flying hockey puck during a match caused him to lose a tooth on the left side, resulting in a midline shift and misaligned teeth, including Tom Cruise’s middle tooth, which has become famous.

Athletes like young Tom should take precautions such as wearing mouthguards to prevent these injuries, even if they dream of becoming Hollywood stars like Cruise in “Top Gun”. In fact, young tom voluntarily removed his mouthguard once, realizing the importance of safety in sports.

Tom Cruise's Dental Journey

Over the years, Tom Cruise underwent various dental procedures to improve his smile, including teeth whitening and alignment operations. This dental journey led to a more aesthetically pleasing appearance, making his red carpet appearance even more stunning.

One of the most notable steps in Tom Cruise’s fix journey was when he opted for braces at the age of 40. The question arises, why did he opt for braces at a relatively late age?

Ceramic Braces at 40

Tom Cruise braces

In 2002, Tom Cruise made the bold decision to wear ceramic braces to enhance his dental midline and overall smile. His braces became a topic of discussion during red carpet appearances and interviews, with the Hollywood veteran even joking about his teeth on David Letterman’s show. Tom Cruise wore the braces from January to October of the same year, proving that it’s never too late to make a change to improve one’s appearance.

While some might find it unusual to see a 40-year-old with braces, Cruise’s resolve to pursue his dental transformation showcases his dedication to personal refinement and perfection. This Tom Cruise fix had dual benefits - it corrected his dental midline and mitigated the issue of a single prominent front tooth, enabling him to present a more balanced smile for the camera. With the Tom Cruise fixed smile, he continues to captivate audiences worldwide.

Analyzing Tom Cruise's Asymmetrical Smile

Despite numerous dental treatments, Tom Cruise’s smile remains asymmetrical, with his left incisor appearing larger than the right one. This unique feature adds a certain charm to his smile and sets him apart from other Hollywood stars. It’s a reminder of the fact that even the most famous actors aren’t entirely perfect.

Even though his smile lacks perfect symmetry, it has turned into an iconic trademark of Tom Cruise’s persona. His teeth, once misaligned and discolored, have been transformed into a dazzling smile that has captivated audiences for decades.

The Evolution of Tom Cruise's Teeth Through the Years

Tom Cruise’s teeth have undergone a significant transformation over the years, with noticeable improvements in color, alignment, and symmetry. From his misaligned teeth in the early 1980s to his improved grin in the early 2000s, Tom Cruise’s dental journey has been nothing short of remarkable.

The transformation of his teeth stands as a tribute to the advancements in modern dentistry and the perseverance of celebrities like Tom Cruise in upholding their image. Today, his smile is admired by fans and dental professionals alike, demonstrating how far dental treatments have come in recent decades.

Notable Moments in Tom Cruise's Dental History

Key moments in Tom Cruise’s dental journey include his natural teeth in “The Outsiders”, his ceramic braces in 2002, and his more symmetrical smile in 2016. These milestones showcase the dedication and effort it took for Tom Cruise to achieve his current smile.

It’s intriguing to ponder the influence of these dental transformations on shaping Tom Cruise’s image and in solidifying his enduring success in the acting realm. From his early days in Hollywood to his current status as an icon, Tom Cruise’s teeth have played a significant role in his journey.

Comparing Dental Solutions: Crowns vs. Veneers

Tom Cruise likely chose dental crowns over veneers due to the extent of damage to his teeth, as crowns offer more protection than veneers. Veneers only cover the front surface of the teeth, while crowns offer more protection and are better suited for cases like Cruise’s, where teeth have sustained significant damage.

Choosing crowns over veneers indicates Tom Cruise’s commitment towards not just enhancing his looks, but also preserving the health and lifespan of his teeth. His dental journey is one of both aesthetic enhancement and functional restoration, showcasing the importance of making informed choices when it comes to dental treatments.

Tom Cruise's Thoughts on His Dental Work

While Tom Cruise has never explicitly discussed his dental work, it is known that he opted for braces at the age of 40 to improve his smile. His decision to undergo various dental treatments throughout his career and his dedication to maintaining a dazzling smile demonstrate his commitment to personal growth and improvement.

Although he hasn’t vocalized about his dental journey, his actions communicate his intent more eloquently.

Alternative Dental Treatments for Tom Cruise

The consideration for alternative dental treatments, such as implants, might have been on the table for Tom Cruise. However, time constraints due to his career may have been a factor in his decision-making process. With a busy schedule and numerous film commitments, Tom Cruise needed dental solutions that would provide the best results in the shortest amount of time.

Other dental treatments, such as veneers, bonding, and dental implants, could also have been options for Tom Cruise. Ultimately, his dental journey showcases the importance of finding the right balance between aesthetic improvement, functionality, and time management when it comes to dental care.

The Influence of Tom Cruise's Smile on His Career

Tom Cruise’s smile, despite its imperfections, has become an iconic part of his image and has not hindered his successful acting career. In fact, his unique smile may have added to his charm and appeal as an actor, setting him apart from other Hollywood stars.

Spanning from “Risky Business” to “Jerry Maguire” and further, Tom Cruise’s mesmerizing smile has played a crucial role in his cinematic charisma. His dental journey serves as a reminder that even the most famous actors have their imperfections, and embracing these unique features can be a powerful way to stand out in a competitive industry.

Tom Cruise’s dental journey is a fascinating exploration of the power of modern dentistry and the dedication of celebrities to maintain their image. From misaligned teeth and a sports injury to a dazzling, iconic smile, Tom Cruise’s teeth have transformed both in appearance and function. His commitment to personal growth and improvement serves as an inspiration for us all to embrace our imperfections and strive for excellence.

Tom cruise teeth

The accomplished American Actor, Tom Cruise has dominated the screens since the eighties. And while his talent has remained consistent throughout his career. The same can’t be said about Tom Cruise’s teeth. The multiple-times Oscar nominee had an iconic smile. And while it’s been along with his best assets, even Tom Cruise’s smile had a humble beginning.

What was wrong with Tom Cruise’s smile

Tom Cruise’ Smile wasn’t naturally perfect, in fact, it was the contrary. When Cruise first rose to fame, his teeth haven’t had all the work of cosmetic dentistry just yet.

Time Cruise’s smile was remarkably misaligned and one of his incisors was oddly prominent. His dental midline was way off-grid where his upper incisor took over it.

In addition to his misalignment, Time Cruise’s teeth were also very stained. And all in all, his smile wasn’t up to Hollywood’s standard.

How did Tom Cruise fix his teeth

To fix Tom Cruise’s teeth, the actor had to go through many years of treatment to fix his smile. To get the perfect he currently has, Tom Cruise couldn’t opt directly for the Hollywood Smile procedure. Because Tom Cruise’s teeth were severely misaligned, he had to get braces first.

Tom Cruise had braces for his teeth around the time he was 40 and reportedly opted for ceramic braces. These types of braces are usually color-matched to your teeth so they’re not very visible. But this was back in 2002, now there are modern options if you wish to have braces minus the chunky look. There’s the Invisalign as well as bilingual braces.

The braces helped get Tom Cruise’s teeth into proper alignment restoring his dental midline. Orthodontics is always the first part of treatment in cosmetic dentistry. Getting the right alignment helps pave way for additional tweaks to polish your smile. Because when your smile is straight, it’s easier to identify other construction problems and opt for the Hollywood Smile.

While many might assume Tom Cruise was too old around the time he sported braces for his teeth, adult braces are in reality very common.

As for the staining, Tom Cruise’s teeth have had whitening to give them a natural glow. But since then, the actor has upgraded his treatments wearing veneers for the ultimate smile.

Tom Cruise Teeth Before and After: What Did The Actor Look Like Before?

A Hollywood icon and a beloved action hero, the sixty-one-year-old actor, Tom Cruise has been doing films for over forty years and seems to have still not lost his touch. The actor has consistently been a part of one of the highest-paid actors’ list, with his films managing to collect over $11.5 billion in gross earnings.

A respected actor, Cruise has to his name a long list of awards and accolades, including an Honorary Palme d’Or, two Saturns Awards, and three Golden Globes, along with several Oscar and BAFTA awards nominations. The actor started sometime around the start of the 1980s and continues to pull audiences to the theatres with movies like The Mummy and Top Gun: Maverick .

He is known to have quite the reputation for insisting on performing his stunts, especially in his fan-favorite Mission Impossible franchise, which we are sure fans must be familiar with. He kickstarted his career with lead roles in Risky Business, Top Gun, The Outsiders, Born on Fourth of July, Jerry Maguire, and others, all of which were hits.

He moved to dramatic roles in films, including the likes of A Few Good Men, The Firm, Interview with the Vampire, and Eyes Wide Shut , which were commercial hits and helped him establish his skills further in the industry. The Mission Impossible series came into being in 1996 and changed the career trajectory of the actor, firmly establishing himself as an action film hero.

The actor’s fame and popularity have not faltered over the years, though he may have a few flops here and there. One other thing people have continuously praised Cruies for, other than his courage in performing his stunts and for his performance in films, is his good looks. 

Fans have witnessed the young man turn from the sexiest man alive in 1990, to a handsome man, who, despite his age, continues to look as fresh as ever. But as it turns out, this was not always the case with the actor, who looked ever so slightly different than he does now, and no, we are not talking about the visible smile lines and wrinkles that have gotten added to his features. 

Tom Cruise Before & After

If you have been following the actor’s career, you must have noticed the difference between Tom’s face from when he was fresh in the business, doing small roles, to what he is now. Turns out the sweet smile the actor loves flashing to his fans did not always look the way it does, pretty and dazzling.

While his perfectly aligned teeth have added to his charm, making him look more ‘Hollywood A-lister’ worthy, it was, back in the day, misaligned and imperfect, much like many young boys at the time. While we are sure you would be able to dig up some images of his teeth then, there is not much proof left of it unfortunately.

He was only twenty when he entered the industry with his crooked teeth, which by the way, you can spot in the movie The Outsiders, which came out in the early 1980s, when the actor’s talent was still undiscovered. He had his crooked teeth fixed with the help of alignment procedures after which he seemed to have also gotten a teeth whitening procedure done, adding to his unnaturally bright white smile.

During the early 2000s, the actor proudly revealed his braces to photographers on the red carpets and fans, saying that it was finally time for him to fix his teeth. Before this, the actor was known to have used his teeth as a feature that could potentially add to the personalities of the different characters he played early on in his career. 

The actor revealed that it was while he was playing hockey that he got injured and his teeth got damaged. While he has got them fixed however he could, there is a lot that is not natural about them. His ‘dental midline’ is shifted toward the left, and he has had a few embarrassing accidents because of his teeth procedures.

His smile and teeth have changed too many times over his career, but one thing that remains unchanged despite all of it is his charming smile, which many continue to admire.

Tom Cruise Teeth Transformation: From Early Days to Hollywood Smile

Tom cruise: a journey through transformations, from smile makeovers to red carpet appearances and speculations on his changing appearance – a comprehensive exploration.

Tom Cruise Following 'Top Gun: Maverick' with a Musical (and some more Action Movies)

Tom Cruise radiated with his trademark infectious smile and flawless set of pearly whites as he graced the Producers Guild Awards in LA on Monday evening.

However, the renowned A-list actor, who is now 60, didn’t always boast a perfect smile, as evidenced by his misaligned teeth during his younger days before he opted for corrective measures.

Snapshots from his appearance in the 80s film The Outsiders unveiled his less-than-perfect teeth alignment prior to undergoing dental procedures.

Nevertheless, throughout the years, he has meticulously curated an impeccable smile that has become synonymous with his persona as a celebrated film star, ensuring he’s always red carpet ready.

Here, MailOnline presents an insightful glance into the evolution of his dental transformation over the years…

Tom Cruise

In the early 1980s, a young 20-year-old Tom Cruise launched his acting career, characterized by his debut in the industry.

During his early days, like many individuals of his age, Tom faced the challenge of misaligned and discolored teeth.

According to Heightline, Tom initially resolved these issues through various dental procedures, including teeth whitening and alignment treatments.

Notably, his dental symmetry doesn’t perfectly align with the center of his face, a feature that remains noticeable even in recent snapshots of him.

Moreover, during his portrayal of Steve Randle in the 1983 film The Outsiders, a youthful Tom took the initiative to remove the cap from a front tooth that had been chipped due to an incident involving a flying puck during a hockey match.

During the filming of The Outsiders, Cruise believed that showcasing his teeth in their unaltered form would be in line with the portrayal of his street-smart, tough character.

Throughout the movie, his genuine teeth, including a noticeable brown, lifeless tooth at the center of his smile, were prominently featured.

However, in his later cinematic endeavors such as Risky Business , Top Gun , and Cocktail , Cruise opted for a dental cap that covered his teeth, ensuring a flawless appearance in his subsequent blockbuster roles.

Following his separation from Nicole Kidman in 2001, the seasoned Hollywood star opted for braces to address issues with overbite and dental misalignment.

He proudly exhibited them while making his way down the red carpet at the premiere of Minority Report in 2002, coinciding with his 40th birthday.

To the surprise of many, the actor confidently sported a visible silver dental brace during his red carpet appearances and interviews.

At the time, Cruise humorously mentioned to David Letterman that the decision was to rectify his persistent overbite, quipping, “I couldn’t close my mouth properly for years, so they finally said, ‘please, shut your mouth.'”

The actor further shared that the suggestion for braces came unexpectedly when he took his children for a dental check-up, only to find out that he could also benefit from the corrective measure.

Wearing the braces from January 2002 until October of the same year, he eventually commenced work on his film of that period, The Last Samurai.

Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise’s captivating smile garnered considerable attention during his presence at the Jerry Bruckheimer Hand and Footprint Ceremony in May 2010.

This marked a notable contrast from 25 years prior, during his appearance in The Outsiders, where he was seen without the dental cap covering the front of his teeth.

Subsequently, Tom’s dental features continued to enhance, evident from his appearance at the Rock of Ages premiere in 2016, showcasing a much more balanced and symmetrical smile.

In another instance, during a benefit screening of his film Jack Reacher: Never Go Back in 2012, observers keenly noted a slight asymmetry, with his left incisor seemingly larger than the right.

Transitioning from the heartthrob star of Top Gun to the moment of the noticeable puffy face, and now a sun-kissed complexion with cascading locks, let’s delve into the ever-evolving appearance of Tom Cruise.

Stepping onto the red carpet at the 95th Annual Oscars Nominees Luncheon this week, the 60-year-old Top Gun: Maverick protagonist unveiled a striking new appearance, a significant departure from his previous public appearances over the past eight months.

Amid the accolades received by the 2022 blockbuster summer film, which garnered multiple Oscar nominations, including a nod for Best Picture, the actor showcased his transformed image, featuring notably longer locks and a distinct sun-kissed glow. His dapper ensemble included a navy blue suit, a corresponding waistcoat, and a crisp white shirt, ensuring an elegant yet contemporary look.

As one of the entertainment industry’s highest-earning performers, Tom Cruise’s on-screen career has endured for more than four decades. Following his breakthrough roles in Risky Business (1983) and Top Gun (1986), he solidified his status as a leading actor in the 1990s with notable performances in The Firm (1993) and Jerry Maguire (1996).

As he embarks on the fifth decade of his illustrious career, MailOnline reflects on the remarkable evolution of Tom’s appearance through the years.

1980S – THE EARLY YEARS

Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise was a youthful 24-year-old when he made his memorable appearance in one of his most iconic films, Top Gun.

The actor secured the pivotal role of Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell in the action-packed movie, which soared to become the highest-earning domestic film of the year, grossing an impressive $357 million.

During this era, he appeared in other notable films like The Color Of Money (1986) and All The Right Moves (1983), showcasing a persona that seemed a far cry from his current self.

Reflecting on his sudden rise to fame during this period, Tom candidly shared his experience of grappling with newfound recognition in public.

In an interview with Interview magazine, he confided, ‘I’m naturally a very private person, often lost in my own world. Suddenly, I found myself walking down the street and catching people’s attention, and I couldn’t help but wonder, “Is something hanging out of my nose?”‘

‘It took some time to acclimate to the newfound attention. Filming Legend in England during that time felt surreal. Every small gesture seemed amplified when all eyes were on you,’ he added.

EMERGENCE INTO THE NEW MILLENNIUM – MOVIE STAR

By this juncture, Tom had firmly established himself as one of the industry’s most prominent stars, showcasing a strikingly sculpted appearance to complement his rising stardom.

The actor exuded an air of a seasoned male model as he graced the Screen Actors Guild Awards that year, earning a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor for his performance in the film Magnolia.

During this period, Tom also sported a longer hairstyle, a characteristic style choice that coincided with the final months of his marriage to actress Nicole Kidman.

Simultaneously, it marked the pivotal year when the Mission: Impossible franchise kicked off in earnest, with the successful release of the first sequel, grossing over $500 million at the box office.

MID-2000S – CONTINUING ACHIEVEMENT

In the mid-2000s, Tom Cruise opted for a more daring appearance, adopting a significantly shorter crew cut that remained his signature look for several years.

This period marked a significant peak in Tom’s career, as he appeared in a string of highly successful films such as The Last Samurai, Collateral, and War of the Worlds.

Simultaneously, he was preparing to make a comeback in the Mission: Impossible franchise, with the third installment hitting screens two years later.

During this phase, Tom also embarked on one of his most publicized relationships, commencing a romance with actress Katie Holmes in April 2005. Their journey took a significant turn when the couple announced the impending arrival of their first child, Suri, in October of the same year, who was eventually born in April 2006.

The duo tied the knot in November, only for Katie to file for divorce five and a half years later, marking the end of their union.

2021 – TOM’S APPEARANCE SPARKS SPECULATION

Tom caused a stir in October 2021 when he was spotted at a San Francisco baseball game, sporting a notably puffy face.

During the LA Dodgers match, the father-of-three’s seemingly fuller face led to conjecture about potential fillers, prompting discussions about his appearance.

Dawn Attewell, a Registered Aesthetics Nurse at therapyhouse.co.uk, shared with FEMAIL that the photographs might have indicated ‘excessive filler’ and ‘post-procedure swelling.’ She also suggested that his refreshed look could be attributed to a ‘hair transplant’ and ‘skin tightening treatments.’

‘In the widely discussed October 2021 image, it was evident that Tom’s face appeared swollen and puffy, possibly due to various factors such as excessive filler, post-procedure swelling, or even natural weight fluctuations.’

‘Surgical procedures like a platysmal plasty, or a neck lift combined with a mid-facelift, could potentially lead to this type of swelling in the areas mentioned.’

However, it didn’t take long for Tom to revert to his usual self, as he made a striking appearance on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2022, displaying a more refined and slimmer appearance.

PRESENT DAY

‘Mission: Impossible’ Director Says Tom Cruise Shared the ‘Weirdest’ Story about Himself

Last year, Tom made a powerful comeback to the spotlight with his first film in four years, Top Gun: Maverick.

The movie raked in over $1 billion at the box office, emerging as the highest-grossing film of his career, earning accolades for its notable improvements over the original.

Tom has once again embraced longer locks and has kept busy in recent months, putting the finishing touches on Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning parts one and two.

While the release for Part one is scheduled for July, devoted fans of the franchise will have to wait until June 2024 for Part two to hit the screens.

Tom Cruise Has One of Hollywood’s Most Famous Smiles! The Story Behind His ‘Middle Tooth’

  • Oops! Something went wrong. Please try again later. More content below

When it comes to smiles, Tom Cruise ' s teeth might take the cake. More than three decades into his career, the action star — who has starred in some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters , including Mission: Impossible – Fallout and Top Gun — is still one of the hottest stars, and it's all thanks to his impeccable acting chops and winning good looks.

But no matter how phenomenal he is as an actor, fans can't help but notice that Tom's 100-watt grin has one tooth that's just a bit out of place. In fact, you can see from photos that his teeth aren't exactly symmetrical with the center of his face. Many have noticed that Tom's right front tooth is just a tad askew and has been widely referred to as his "middle tooth" for quite a while now.

Tom has certainly put in the time and effort to achieve the smile he has today. Just after his split from Nicole Kidman in 2001, the Hollywood veteran got braces to address an overbite and misalignment problems. He proudly showed them off while walking the red carpet at the 2002 premiere of Minority Report .

The Jerry Maguire actor has never been shy about flaunting his less-than-perfect smile. When he played Steve Randle in 1983's The Outsiders , a young Tom voluntarily removed the cap from a front tooth that had been chipped by a flying puck in a hockey match.

Despite his dental imperfection, Tom has never lacked confidence. In 1985, only a couple of years after his career took off, the genetically blessed star explained why he decided to embrace his newfound sex symbol status. "It doesn't bother me at all," he told Entertainment Tonight at the time. "I mean, I don't, like, resent it. I'm not tortured at night by it. You know, I'm actually very happy that people, you know, think enough of my work to feel that way."

Fans have never seemed to mind his unique grin. Since he was thrust into the spotlight in the early ‘80s, Tom has remained one of Hollywood’s hunkiest actors. He stepped back into his role of Captain Pete "Maverick" Mitchell in the 2022 film Top Gun: Maverick . The action movie was a huge hit at the box office, becoming the New York native's first film to gross $1 billion worldwide, per People .

Fans could not help but notice Tom’s timeless look in the film, sparking major social media attention along with his costars Miles Teller and Glen Powell . He promoted the sequel on red carpets all over the world with his dashing looks, proving that he is ageless. Of course, he rocked his best accessory — his smile!

Tom Cruise Teeth – The Truth About The Actor’s Distinctive Misaligned Middle Tooth Revealed

Stephanie Ugwu

Tom Cruise was born with a severe teeth defect. His front middle teeth were distinctively misaligned, and everything was yellow when he first came onto the acting scene. He had also suffered a crack on his teeth from a flying hockey puck when he played hockey as a teenager. This gave the actor a crooked smile but all that has since changed as he worked on his teeth.

The veteran Hollywood movie star has since captured a large fan base with his perfect smile and the action-packed roles he usually plays in movies. His smiles are one that he doesn’t hesitate to flaunt to the public.

The History Of Tom Cruise’s Teeth

Tom Cruise was born with a severe teeth defect, which showcased a disarranged front teeth with a yellowish color that was different from the rest of the teeth. Apart from the teeth defect, he also got a cracked tooth from a flying hockey puck when he played hockey. The young Cruise moved over to New York from Canada when he got to the age of 18. He first worked as a busboy before picking up a career in acting.

His first appearance was in 1981 in the film Endless Love . His teeth defects were still the same, though it was not noticeable in the film. Tom Cruise also featured the same year in the film Taps where he played the role of a cadet captain with his teeth defect. Throughout the first stage of his acting career, he had terrible yellowish and disarranged broken front teeth and a little cover on the fractured part of his front teeth.

In 1982, the actor kicked off proper with a career in acting, not minding his terrible teeth defect. He spent a lot to see that he got a perfect set of teeth that would accompany his smiles and started treating his teeth with teeth whiteners and braces.

Tom Cruise’s teeth defects became noticed by the public in the role that he played as Steve Randle in The Outsiders , which he featured in 1983. He got to play the part in the movie because of a unique position that demanded he removes the cap covering one of his front teeth that were as a result of the crack he obtained when he played hockey.

Tom Cruise’s Efforts To Correct His Teeth After Becoming A Star

tom cruise teeth center

On getting to a level in his career, especially during his movie role in Top Guns where he featured as a navy jet pilot, his teeth were seen to be straighter than before. He first began his teeth treatment by applying dental porcelain laminates to reduce the yellowish stains which were seen on some parts of his teeth. He was keen to find a lasting solution to the disarranged teeth and was spotted on the red carpet flaunting teeth braces which he wore with the intention of straightening his teeth.

Orthodontists are generally known to help children fix teeth misalignments using braces to ease pressure on temporomandibular joints. In 2002, the Mission Impossible actor took up this procedure to align his upper teeth and cover the cracked part of the teeth. These invisible braces have ceramic brackets similar to metal braces which use tooth-colored brackets instead of gray metal brackets.

Tom Cruise wasn’t doing all these to boost self-esteem or public confidence as he has been flaunting his defective teeth in red carpets. It was all an effort to give out the best smile that would correspond to his attractive facial outlook. He used this brace for almost two years before the completion of his treatment. It is noteworthy that he resorted to teeth braces because he didn’t want to draw the attention of the public to his face while undergoing the teeth correction processes.

By 2012, Tom Cruise, who never seizes to captivate people with his smiles, was spotted flaunting more improved white teeth on the red carpet and in a charity event. However, he chooses to keep his treatment processes under the radar and has not publicly discussed how he treated the teeth defect.

His fans suspected that he took a severe dental treatment with the use of dental veneers. The dental veneers are used to treat root canals, stains from tetracycline or large resin fillings, excessive fluoride, or other causes of teeth discolor, worn out, broken, misaligned, and gap teeth. The dental veneers convinced Tom’s fans that it could be the magic behind his sudden teeth reborn.

Tom Cruise’s Disarranged Teeth After Dental Treatment

Most people going through this procedure for teeth treatment fail to focus more on identifying the straight line between the nose pointer down to the dental midline and make sure it is well aligned to have a perfect match. This problem was the case with Tom Cruise after his treatment.

Despite the effort, time, and resources invested by him in getting over the teeth defect, he had two notable errors after undergoing dental treatment. One was that the dental midline and the facial midline were thoughtfully separated, which means that his nose point and the part of his front teeth were in the same line. This teeth misalignment is a severe defect in dental treatment. The other shortcoming is that one of his incisors was longer than the other, which is usually corrected better during a proper dental treatment.

Tom Cruise has received a lot of claims about his teeth but hasn’t made any statement concerning these claims online. It has been pointed out that the claims about his teeth were true and this has prompted him to keep mute about the whole thing. But the reality remains that he is still showcasing his smile. In any event that he attends without loss of self-esteem on his teeth. The misalignment has also served as a means of advertisement for many orthodontists as they usually point out the final mismatch.

Tom Cruise’s Signature Smile Didn't Come Easy: He Had to Overcome Several Dental Flaws

Tom-Cruise-Signature-Smile-Several-Dental-Flaws

Iconic Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise has looks to die for - a stunning face and a charming smile, but the actor has overcome a major dental flaw to flaunt his now perfect smile.

The Middle Tooth 

Cruise is undeniably one of Hollywood’s most accomplished actors, but his good looks and contagious smile is another reason he rules the hearts of millions.

However, there is a story behind his picture-perfect smile. The actor spent years to find the right dental solution for the front tooth, perhaps popularly known as the  “middle tooth.”  

Many fans have noticed that his front right tooth is a bit out of place. In fact, if you have a closer look at his old movies and portraits, the pictures speak for themselves.

In 2001, just after his breakup with Nicole Kidman, the  Mission Impossible  star got braces to address an overbite and dental misalignment.

        View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by Tom Cruise (@tomcruise)

Cruise proudly flaunted his  invisible braces  with ceramic brackets while walking the red carpet of  Minority Repor t Premiere’ in 2002. The artist’s then publicist Pat Kingsley revealed Cruise would wear an orthodontic device for a year. 

Even before that, during the shooting of  The Outsiders  (1983), where he played the role of Steve Randle, the then 21-year-old Cruise removed the cap from one of the front teeth that had been chipped by a flying puck in a hockey match. 

The Dental Imperfection Never Shook His Confidence

Despite the dental flaw, the 58-year-old never lacked conviction. During his initial days as a Hollywood hero, Cruise mentioned why he happily embraced his newly found sex symbol status.

In a 1985 interview with Entertainment Tonight, he explained that the tag neither bothered him, nor did he particularly like it.

It doesn’t bother me at all. I mean, I don’t, like, resent it. I’m not tortured at night by it. You know, I’m actually very happy that people, you know, think enough of my work to feel that way.

The Transformation 

The maverick actor started his career in 1982 with his genetically gifted looks and not-so-perfect smile. According to reports, he initially opted for teeth whitening for his discoloration and alignment procedures. 

When he appeared at a public event in 2010 with the completely transformed look, people went head over heels for him. After completing over twenty-five years in the industry, he aced the fresh look. 

By 2012, the actor had undergone a complete  dental modification.  At the 2012 premiere of  Rock of Ages , Cruise looked ever so handsome with his newly improved dentition and a fresh haircut. Later in December that year, the actor was also seen at a charity event. 

However, the  Mission Impossible  star never opened up about his dental transformation. Many dentists believe he must have received porcelain veneers apart from braces.  Some dentists also suggested that Cruise might have an implant-supported ceramic crown in the area where he lost his tooth.   

At 58, Cruise remains a fan-favorite, and the actor is known for his realistic acting skills, fantastic persona, and charismatic looks.
