Yes, it is possible to model with an imperfect smile. However, the fashion and modeling industry can be highly competitive, and certain physical features, including the appearance of a model’s teeth, can play a role in the types of modeling work they are offered.
Models with imperfect smiles may still find success in alternative or niche markets, such as editorial, alternative fashion, or commercial modeling. Take a look at the most recent Gucci beauty campaign as an example.
Ultimately, a model’s success will depend on a variety of factors, including their physical appearance, personality, and ability to market themselves to potential clients. A model’s smile can be just one aspect of their overall look, and it’s important for models to focus on building a strong portfolio (not spending a ton however) and cultivating a professional demeanor in order to succeed in the industry.
