Wes Bentley’s upper and lower teeth have been misaligned for a long time, and from what we know about his past, it might be related to his years of drug abuse. And aside from his teeth, the ace actor also has a scar on the lower left part of his stomach.
Though a lot of questions have been asked by his fans about his teeth and scar, the 45-year-old actor has chosen to be indifferent with his response about his unique body features. His unique set of teeth and scars has nonetheless garnered him loads of attention from fans and haters alike. Below is a clear narrative of the TV star’s unique physical appearance and why he has it.
The Truth About Wes Bentley’s Teeth
Although there have been several rumors about Bentley’s teeth, the Yellowstone star has remained mum on the issue, leaving lots of room for speculation as to why his teeth appear the way they do. While a group of people think that his crooked teeth might be a result of suffering from a variant of malocclusion, others think that the celebrity actor’s teeth may have become deformed due to childhood orthodontic work that went bad.
However, the truth behind the Yellow Stone star’s teeth may most likely be traced back to his nine years of substance abuse. Just at the prime of his youthful career, Wes Bentley plunged into a nearly decade-long substance addiction. Speaking of his years of addiction, Wes said that those were the darkest years of his life and had him taking substances like cocaine and heroin.
A prolonged indulgence in such substances can have a drastic effect on one’s oral and dental health, particularly leading to tooth loss, decay, and discoloration. Thus, Wes Bentley’s battle with addiction may have had an impact on the state of his teeth.

Wes’ unique set of teeth, which set him apart from almost any other Hollywood celebrity and have been even described by some people as misaligned, now endears people to him.
While most other celebrities might have been vocal about unpleasant remarks about any part of their body, Wes decided to fully embrace his as a distinct part of his identity. And even when it appears there have been noticeable changes with his dentition, the actor still has not deemed it a good reason to comment.
