The singer, known on the show for her signature dreadlocks and gap-toothed grin, took a trip to the dentist before going on tour, a rep for 19 Entertainment confirms to PEOPLE, and her once missing tooth is now straight and sparkling.
For her part, Bowersox, who also split with her boyfriend before the Idol finale, took to her Twitter account to show off her new smile. “whats NOT missing in this picture?????? Yeah. That’s right,” she Tweeted alongside a snapshot on June 25.
Though she was largely praised by judges and fans for her musical abilities, at one point early in the Idol season, host Ryan Seacrest may have made an insulting comment about her teeth. Still, Bowersox, 24, said there were no hard feelings and “no beef” between her and the Idol host.
Crystal Bowersox set the Twitter-verse abuzz recently when she posted a picture of her smile, showing off brand new pearly whites.“It was something I’ve always wanted to do,” the Idol runner-up told PEOPLE Friday at Good Morning America, where she performed with winner Lee DeWyze. “I had braces when I was young and I couldn’t afford to finish treatment.”
Bowersox, who split with her boyfriend before the Idol finale, had previously turned down an offer to get her teeth done for free earlier this year, saying that she was beautiful the way she was. Why the change of heart?
“I had turned down an offer that I thought was very rude,” Bowersox, 24, says. “There was a dentist that made a public offer — he didn’t contact me personally, and so I turned him down publicly. It’s not that I didn’t want to do it. I’ve always wanted to do it.”
Bowersox, who is currently on the American Idols Live Tour, admits that her new teeth are a boost.
“I’m smiling with pure confidence for the first time in my life,” she said. “And it’s a good thing.”
