Four-time Grammy-nominated singer Jewel isn’t known for caring much about public perception. Famous for numerous chart-topping songs, such as “You Were Meant for Me” and “Who Will Save Your Soul,” the country/pop star is well known for having a noticeably flawed smile which makes her different from other celebrities, who have sought out cosmetic dental procedures aimed at correcting their crooked teeth. Recently, however, Jewel raised some eyebrows, when she showed up on a video with attractive, straight teeth.

Quick Change

A recent video clip had celebrity gossip magazines and websites buzzing, thanks to some footage of Jewel sporting a straight smile. Just 14 days prior, the songstress was spotted with her trademark misaligned teeth, causing people to wonder how she got straight teeth in such a short amount of time. In actuality, according to the famous singer, she owed her new smile to temporary, removable dentures, which she wore to make her look more like June Carter Cash for the Lifetime Original Movie, Ring Of Fire.

Lot of Attention

Although she may have valued the attention paid to her upcoming movie, Jewel didn’t seem too excited about the publicity surrounding her teeth. In a recent sit-down with Health magazine, she paid tribute to her infamous smile, saying it has benefited her by making her stand out from other singers. Unfortunately, this typically isn’t the case for people who live in the real world.

Accepting Reality

While Jewel may be able to get away with having an imperfect smile; the average person is forced to accept some blunt realities. Research has demonstrated that crooked teeth have a serious impact on how other people perceive individuals, not to mention oral health. In fact, studies have shown that people who have misaligned smiles tend to be perceived as being less intelligent and less likely to succeed. While cruel and unfair, this reality can have a big effect on lives, causing people to suffer both socially and professionally.
