What happened to Johnny Depp’s teeth?

Unfortunately for Johnny Depp, Camille Vasquez does not portray his teeth.

What happened to Johnny Depp's teeth?

Unexpectedly, the subject of what happened to Johnny Depp’s teeth has generated interest and has been covered by a variety of publications. Naturally, this is largely due to the fact that anything Johnny Depp-related is a hot topic for writing, but we were still perplexed as to why his teeth were such a big deal. We debated asking the tooth fairy for advice, but ultimately decided to try something a little different.


So, as we investigate Johnny Depp’s tooth rot, we also become aware that there is a bit more to the story.

What happened to Johnny Depp's teeth?

Sadly, Depp’s decayed teeth can be traced back to the maltreatment he experienced as a child. They relate the tale of a man who turned to serious addiction as a coping mechanism for childhood abuse. He used drugs for a long time to cope with his background, but they finally caught up with him and his teeth.

His drug usage grew steadily worse over time, becoming more pervasive, frequent, and problematic. Depp even frequently played roles in which his protagonist used drugs, almost exactly mirroring his own behavior at the time. Nevertheless, he was incredibly successful in spite of everything, which most likely encouraged him to use drugs even more, which is paradoxically a type of self-abuse.

Before we discuss the maltreatment he experienced as a child, let’s take a quick look at the particular reasons why his teeth were destroyed.

The Rum Jack Sparrow prefers

Like the character he played in Pirates of the Caribbean, Johnny Depp never seemed to drink enough. He even acknowledged that he spent around $30,000 on wine each month. Imagine what an exceptionally high intake of wine can do when you consider the high acidity of wine, which can harm anyone’s teeth if consumed regularly.

Numerous studies have found that while the enamel is deteriorating, it can also result in yellowing of the teeth. When consuming wine in “mega-pints,” we assume that this is in particular true.

He met Amber Heard on the set of The Rum Diary, which is a funny side note.

Smoking and Fear in Las Vegas

Hunter S. Thompson was portrayed by Johnny Depp in the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. In the film, Depp basically smokes nonstop and there is constant drug use. Such elements of the movie function as biographical elements for both the subject and Depp, who has been smoking for decades and claims to have started when he was 12 years old.

After Thompson passed away in 2005, Depp spent $5 million to have his ashes shot out of a cannon close to where Thompson had lived in Colorado. We are unable to think of a compelling reason why Depp wouldn’t spend some money on getting his teeth fixed, but to each his own. It appears that Depp could afford to do so.

Well, it’s quite well known that smoking cigarettes can damage your teeth when it comes to smoking (and harm to your health). In addition to making teeth yellow, it can also lead to gum disease and tooth loss. It may potentially lead to cancer in some circumstances. When you give it more thought, it’s almost astonishing that Depp hasn’t experienced any significant health problems as a result of any of his vices.


Don’t waste it

In the 2001 movie Blow about cocaine smuggler George Jung, Depp played the lead role. It turns out that Depp enjoyed cocaine as well. Although it’s unclear when he started this specific habit, he acknowledged doing cocaine on the witness stand during the recent Depp-Heard trial, including a few occasions with Marilyn Manson.

Although seemingly insignificant compared to the detrimental effects cocaine may have on your life, it can also have a harmful impact on your teeth. The usual effects of cocaine on the teeth include “enamel erosion, perforation of the palate, periodontitis or retracted gums, dry mouth, cavities, and more,” according to Banyan Treatment Centers, who offer drug and alcohol addiction treatment.

Depp and his toxic connection

Johnny Depp stated, “I spent years poisoning myself,” in an interview with Rolling Stone from 2005 and a subsequent interview with People.

What led Depp to take up drug use? To get the answer, you would need to travel back to his early years.

Depp has acknowledged that he began drinking alcohol and using drugs not long after he first started smoking cigarettes (at the age of 12). During his trial, he stated that he used drugs to “numb the lingering pain from my youth.”

Depp made an effort to stop using cocaine, but his efforts were unsuccessful. Depp loathed cocaine as a youth, so his longtime friend Bruce Witkin was shocked to see Depp use it in his later years. He stated of Depp, “He’s dealt with deep-rooted issues.”

Child abuse as a child

To put it bluntly, Depp’s mother physically and verbally abused him and his siblings. She had the capacity to be as vicious as anyone, according to Depp.

Depp continued by saying that his mother had a terrible temper and would frequently beat them in the head with “a high-heeled shoe or telephone or anything was there” or throw an ashtray at them.

Christi Dembrowski, Depp’s sister, said at the Depp-Heard trial about how her mother had abused both her and her brother. She used to strike us. She threw things around. We used to flee and hide.

Betty Sue Palmer, their mother, died in 2016 at the age of 81.

“None of what was happening in our home felt nice,” Christi continued.

She and Depp both testified that their mother had used physical abuse against their father, whom Depp described as a good-natured, introverted, and stoic guy. When Depp was 15 years old, their parents split, and Depp soon started abusing alcohol and narcotics.

Christi continued by saying that she and her brother made a commitment not to resemble their mother. As we became older, we made the decision that we would never repeat anything from our upbringing in our own home once we had one.

Now 59, Johnny Depp has lived a life of substance abuse tied to the childhood abuse he suffered. His teeth may not have survived it very well, but that doesn’t stop him from smiling.
