Michael Strahan closes trademark gap in must-see reveal
Strahan said he didn’t talk to anyone or post about considering the procedure because he knew people would tell him not to do it.
Good Morning America host Michael Strahan has closed his signature tooth gap, and he shared the transformation on social media.
He called the procedure a “moment 50 years in the making.”
“I did it. #GoodbyeGap,” Strahan wrote on Twitter. He said he didn’t talk to anyone or post about considering the procedure because he knew people would tell him not to do it. “I’ve got to do what I want to do for myself now,” he said.
Commenters expressed that they loved and would miss his signature look.
Strahan’s bright new smile was the work of Smile Design Manhattan, a cosmetic dentistry service in New York. E! News interviewed Dr. Lee Gause, the dentist who reportedly did the procedure.
“There are lots of miraculous things that can be done with cosmetic dentistry, and Michael Strahan has probably the most signature gap on television,” said Gause. “It just shows the miracles that are possible with cosmetic dentistry to be able to close a gap that is the size of Michael Strahan’s. I think he looks great. I think he was pretty excited about it.”
Gause reportedly would not share if Strahan’s procedure was permanent or temporary.
Fans are still not completely convinced that the video and the procedure are real, especially since Strahan tweeted just last week, “I rock my gap with pride! It’s who I am!”
“There’s so much pressure to be perfect,” Strahan told the publication. “You can fix everything now. For me, I made the conscious effort to say, ‘This is who I am.’ I’m not perfect. I don’t want to try to be perfect. At this point, I don’t think my kids would recognize me without it. They’d be like, ‘Who is this stranger in the house? Call 911!'”
