Dakota Johnson ‘fixed’ the small gap in her front teeth, now she doesn’t have good luck


I’ve never paid much attention to Dakota Johnson’s teeth, probably because I don’t pay much attention to anyone’s teeth, really. The only thing I really notice is when someone has a big gap in the front teeth, and that’s because I’ve heard it’s supposed to be good luck. Dakota Johnson had a little gap in her front teeth, nothing huge, nothing crazy-notable. It just looked like she had her natural teeth, without veneers or caps or anything. But still, Dakota decided to get the little gap “fixed.” She showed off her new smile at an event late last week and people only picked up on it days later. She was cute with the gap and without, honestly.

Meanwhile, did you know that Dakota is back with Chris Martin? It’s like the week of disappointments for me with Dakota: first she fixed something small which actually gave her face some character, and then she got back with a guy whose life is managed by his ex-wife. Us Weekly reported last week that Dakota and Chris were spotted out and about together a few times, and Us Weekly’s source confirmed that they are back together. Then there were photos of Dakota and Chris frolicking in the surf of a Hamptons beach on Sunday. Gross. Now that her good-luck gap is closed, everything’s going to hell for Dakota.

    I always forget about her LOL

  2. Kittycat says:

    I think the bad luck started when she agreed to do the 50 Shades of Grey movies.

    Or when she decided she be an actress….

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Wow that’s harsh. Dakota was the only decent thing in the 50 shades films. She’s also got great comedic timing and I hope she gets to do more comedy. She was hilarious in The 5-Year Engagement

      • Kittycat says:

        Harsh is the lack of gun control in the states.

        Me just saying she lacks talent is just my opinion.

    • Naomipaige99 says:

      Personally, think she stinks as an actress. Snore city if you ask me~

  3. Ctgirl says:

    Dakota is the new Jennifer Grey. Kind of sad that she felt the need to “fix” her most distinctive feature.

    • Pixie says:

      Was that really her most distinctive feature, I feel like people hardly even knew she had it? But to be honest, I am not sure there ever was/is anything distinctive about her :/

    • Erinn says:

      I didn’t even notice it until now, to be honest. That said, I don’t know that I’ve ever sat down and watched anything she was in.

      The gap suited her, though. I hated mine when I was younger and ended up with braces as a teen. But if mine looked as cute as hers did, I’d probably have kept it.

    • Esmom says:

      I don’t know if I’d go that far. I don’t think I’d have noticed the change if it wasn’t pointed out to me. Jennifer Grey looked like an entirely different person after her rhinoplasty.

      • JoJo says:

        Omg, @Esmom, our stories are exactly the same! I had a small gap (runs in my family), absolutely hated it. I was so self-conscious in middle school, and I also got a retainer to fix it, although I ultimately also had to add bonding as the retainer didn’t close it 100%. My whole family used to reference Lauren Hutton too – didn’t matter to me!

        That said, I’ll be honest. I wish I had the confidence to keep it. I thought Dakota looked good with it. Made her look a little different. Same with Anna Paquin. I also like the fact that people like Patricia Arquette and Jewel have crooked teeth and never bothered to fix them.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Hardly. Most people didn’t even realize she had a gap. Which is why I don’t think it’s big deal that she got it filled.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I don’t agree with this at all.

      Jennifer Grey changed her entire look; that is, her face was completely different.

      this? I didn’t even notice, along with most people. hardly the same thing.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Her most distinctive feature is her parents.

  4. Lucy2 says:

    The gap wasn’t even that noticeable. But I guess it bothered her?

    • Esmom says:

      Agreed and I can understand if it bothered her. I had a gap and in middle school I was insanely self-conscious about it. All of my mom’s “but Lauren Hutton is a model and she has a much bigger one” had no effect, lol. I didn’t need braces because the rest of my teeth were fine but I got a retainer that closed it up in a matter of months. It probably sounds shallow but it made me so happy.

    • AnnaKist says:

      That’s also what I thought, but I suspect she’s done more than just fix that tincy-wincy gap. The top lip, for starters. It’s incredibly bigger than her bottom lip, even in a full smile. Let’s hope she hasn’t wandered into her mother’s territory.

  5. Everley says:

    I don’t think they ever broke up.

  6. Melissa Manifesto says:

    I know most people here will probably talk about how she was much more beautiful before with the gap or distinctive features… But I’m on the road of supporting a woman’s rights to choose in every aspect of her life, including cosmetics.

    • Fleur says:

      If I had a tooth gap, I would also get it fixed. I think the change looks great. She has one of those faces where the more I look at her, the more beautiful I think she looks. When I see her in film, I think she has a grace and self composure that is rare in actress under 35. I think she’s really lovely and a very natural performer. Can’t say I understand why she chose to go back with Chris Martin.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        “She has one of those faces where the more I look at her, the more beautiful I think she looks.”

        funny you say this because I feel the same way. she’s not like Jolie or Charlize where you go “WOW” when you see them…they’re strikingly beautiful. but Dakota has a classic look that I notice the more I look at her.

    • Adrianna says:

      If the gap was concerning to her, then good on her decision to change it. Nobody else even noticed it but it’s her deal. I have a huge gap which I haven’t seen for 30 years, nor would I want to.

    • Eleonor says:

      If she had a “normal life” I would say anything, but she works in an industry where women are asked to respond to impossible standard, I would like to know how “free” was this choice.

  7. aenflex says:

    I preferred the gap, actually.

  8. Harryg says:

    I like gappy teeth!

  9. Valiantly Varnished says:

    @Kittycat *insert massive eyeroll* yes we all know our lack of gun control laws is harsh. No need to wag your finger simply because you don’t like my reply. I know it’s your opinion hun. That’s what this entire site is full of. Opinions. I merely replied with MY opinion that it was harsh. Which I’m entitled to do. You aren’t new to this site so my replying my own opinion shouldn’t be such a shocker to you.

  10. Coco Puff says:

    I had a gap and my parents disagreed about getting it closed. fortunately I was given the final decision and I had it shut (when I was 9). It sucks when someone tells you to keep something you dont like about yourself just because it allegedly gives your face character

  11. Lena says:

    I agree I don’t think they ever split up. That whole thing about how he wanted to start a family and she didn’t? Come on. I’m Sure he’s fine waiting a few more years to add on to the two he already had. And I always notice teeth and think they make a big difference. I still remember when Hilary duff got veneers! That was weird.

  12. Nicegirl says:

    Agree she is cute both ways but generally I prefer natural teeth.

    I cannot imagine being in love w Goop’s baby daddy first husband; barftastic 🤢 to the max.

    Does a tooth gap make you lucky? 🍀 I had perfect teeth forever, not one cavity ever, no tooth issues whatsoever. Now I’ve got a small gap between my front teeth. I really didn’t love it but now I don’t hate it, I have other physical challenges that are true ailments I have to deal with but I do feel like it’s maybe karma. I was so proud of those chompers🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️😂💕🖖🏽

  13. RoyalBlue says:

    I have Invisalign and if my daughter wants braces to close her diastema she can get them.

  14. TyrantDestroyed says:

    My upper front teeth had big gaps when I was younger and I fixed them. I think if something physical about you makes you self consious and you have the will and the means to change it go for it.

  15. JanetFerber says:

    I cannot see how she abides Goop in her relationship with the Coldplay guy. Wouldn’t it always be a triangle, despite Goop’s marriage to the Glee guy? Insufferable!

  16. Sorella says:

    With or without gap she is so basic, has none of the charisma both her parents had. She looks like any o’le gal walking down the street, just bland.

  17. Fluffy Princess says:

    I look at her and do not see either one of her parents in her features. Maybe she resembles another family member? Not that she has to be a carbon copy of one of her parents (See Bette Midler’s daughter), but I would not guess in a million years who her parents and/or grandmother is.

  18. anony7 says:

    Maybe it’s just the pictures but her back teeth (upper molars I think) look so small or underdeveloped.
    That upper lip is scary IMO, but I guess lips that are equal in size are what people aspire to now. I’m old-fashioned and prefer the old-time lips like Brigitte Bardot’s or Julie Christie’s; full lower lip, average size upper lip.

  19. SJR says:

    Her Dad, Don Johnson, is very good looking even at his current age. Her Mom, Melanie was very pretty in her youth, but has had so much plastic surgery she hardly looks like herself anymore.
    Dakota is successful because she is a celebrity offspring. IMO, she has little talent.
    See also Bruce Willis/Demi Moore kids..none of the offspring has the talent or “it” factor of their parents.

    Chris Martin? I am too old to be a Coldplay fan. He does seem to be tied to Goopy tho.
    Divorced and yet, my 1st thought is “Goopys Ex”

  20. A Fan says:

    Ironic how the first link after this article is about Megan Fox. First it’s an innocuous gap, next thing you know it’s Megan Fox face.

    [*Stop now, Dakota!*]

  21. Sparkly says:

    I never even noticed her gap before, but looking at all the pictures you’ve used here, she seems to be smiling way bigger/happier/authentically after getting it fixed. So if she’s happy, good for her.

    I’ve always had crooked teeth, and other folks probably don’t even notice, but the way they land makes chewing hard for me with certain foods and gets all food stuck all the time. If I could fix it, I would and be thrilled about it, and it has nothing to do with the way they look.
