Smiles are contagious and have the power to make the world a better place. Studies have proven that humans would feel healthier and less stressed if they smiled more often due to the activation and release of feel-good neurotransmitters in the body after smiling. But despite all the positives that come along with smiling often, not everyone is able to do so because of an inability to produce a perfect smile. This is usually due to the malocclusion of the teeth which makes a smile crooked and somewhat creepy. Here is a list of celebrities who have parted with huge amounts of money in order to fix their creepy smiles.
