George Clooney had a problem that many do as they age into mid-life. Their teeth wear after years of use, causing their teeth to become small and their gums to show more as well, all leading to an unpleasant smile. Luckily, there are things that can be done. Clooney most likely had a smile lift, and porcelain veneers or crowns. Both would make his teeth larger, and lessen the gums showing when he smiles.
A smile can really transform a person, and one of the best examples is Demi Moore. Demi probably had a number of new porcelain crowns, and veneers to create her make-over smile.

He’s got one of the best smiles in Hollywood, but it took some work for Tom Cruise to achieve his signature grin. The actor decided to fix his smile in 2005 after taking one of his children to the orthodontist who had noticed that the star’s teeth were out of alignment.
