Some patients seek orthodontia treatment specifically to get rid of a gap in between their two front teeth. While sometimes this can be a sign of a larger dental issue, if it’s purely cosmetic, maybe take a moment to embrace it! Many top models and other celebrities have chosen to keep their gap teeth, so maybe you should do the same.
Madonna and Elton John being the firsts in the music industry to really embrace theirs. And on the fashion front, Lauren Hutton and Vanessa Paradis were the OG supers who spearheaded the then-novel idea of imperfection at a time when perfection was demanded from models. But the difference between now and then is our attitude—having gap teeth has evolved from a flaw that needed to be fixed, to a feature that was merely tolerated, to something that’s to be desired. The roster of in-demand, gap-tooth models, including Georgia May Jagger, Lily Aldridge, Lara Stone, Jessica Hart, Lindsey Wixson, and Abby Lee Kershaw, speaks to this shift. And when model Adwoa Aboah launched her girl-power platform Gurls Talk, she chose a gap-tooth smile as its logo.
