Hollywood actor and star of the Twilight movies Robert Pattinson has admitted that a cosmetic dentistry procedure designed to improve his smile has been hell for him.
According to the actor, movie bosses urged him to undergo a procedure to fix his teeth before taking the role of vampire Edward Cullen in the 2008 movie.
During the procedure, dentists shaved small areas around his teeth to allow them to align properly, but unfortunately the treatment did not work as well as it should have.
Pattinson said: "Those gaps between my teeth have decayed and caused me so many problems. That’s the one thing I regret doing because I wasn’t thinking at the time."
Elsewhere, Oscar-winning actress Dame Judi Dench recently underwent an emergency dentistry procedure after one of her crowns fell out while filming for the BBC’s Cranford.
Dame Judi had to rush to an emergency dentist in London, but was on such a tight schedule that she had to do so in full period costume.
