Darsheel's toothy smile might be history soon!

india Updated: Jun 12, 2009 20:07 IST

The Taare Zameen Par cutie Darsheel Safary is all set to get a teeth makeover. His buck teeth would soon be a thing of the past. He now has braces.

Darsheel has been undergoing treatment for his teeth from a well-known South Mumbai orthodontist. The treatment will continue for six months.

Darsheel's father confirms the news, "Isn't it normal for any parent whose child has buck teeth to take him to a dentist and have them corrected? Don't parents want the best for their child? What is the harm in that?"

However, the treatment will not have any effect on the child actor's work. Darsheel's braces are made of ceramic, which blends very well with his natural teeth colour. Also it is not visible on camera.

But the flip side is Darsheel will miss favourite foods like pizza and paani puri.
