A new smile for Elliott Yamin

elliott yaminI'm no fan of veneers, but in the case of Elliott Yamin, I'm glad to see it. Elliott placed third in last season's edition of American Idol. He was dubbed 'snaggletooth' for his extremely crooked teeth-- something that I have to admit I found distracting.

Elliott told People magazine that he spent 20 hours in the dentist's chair to get his new chops because he has been embarrassed about his smile since he was a kid. He said he figured out how to smile, and even how to sing, by showing the minimum amount of teeth. Elliott's new teeth are worth $50,000 but he got them for free from an LA dentist... just in time for the release of his first album, which is due early next year.

What do you think of Elliott's new look?

You can't underestimate the impact that having a healthy smile has on someone's life. This is a permanent change, and Elliott looks terrific!

You deserve it Elliott! You look as though you feel great - maybe even as great as you sound! Can't wait to hear your album.

Teeth look good, but what is up with the Wolverine-like hair?

I think he looks like a million, so he got it cheap at 50,000. Good for him. What a voice on him!

Well, by the looks of it, it's definitely worth that much. Especially considering it was done in just 20 hours (not something like braces, that take years).
