While most of us know Freddie Mercury as the iconic front-man of Queen who had an incredible voice, you may not he struggled with misaligned teeth. Mercury had a famously unusual overbite and distinct front teeth as a result of a malocclusion, or a bite alignment issue. Read on to learn more about Freddie Mercury’s teeth!
Freddie Mercury‚ Teeth
Freddie Mercury likely had a hereditary dental condition that left him with four extra teeth in his mouth. This crowded the rest of his teeth and resulted in his front teeth being pushed forward. Freddie Mercury knew that there was treatment for his alignment issue, and he certainly could have afforded to fix his bite. However, he refused to undergo any treatment for his condition. Though his teeth caused him embarrassment, Mercury believed that his unorthodox bite and teeth were responsible for his incredible range and he did not want to change them in case his voice was negatively affected. Instead, he often covered his mouth with his hand and even grew a mustache to draw attention away from his teeth.
