This list of celebrities who wear dentures is loosely ranked by fame and popularity. Everyone knows that a smile goes a long way. In Hollywood, and for other public figures, that smile must be perfect and as a result, several famous people have worn dentures over the years. Some actors and actresses started wearing dentures in their sixties, while others needed to replace their teeth when they were just thirty years old.

Who is the most famous person who wears dentures? Ben Affleck tops the list. Before getting expensive caps, Affleck was rumored to wear a full set of dentures to perfect his pearly whites. Gone with the Wind actor Clark Gable had a terrible gum infection and wore dentures by age 32.

What other movie stars have fake teeth? The Brady Bunch actress Florence Henderson has been very open about the fact that she wears dentures, and can even be seen in Polident commercials, having served a spokesperson for the denture cleanser company. Other celebrity false teeth wearers include young celebs like Emma Watson and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi.
