Sign him up for a good cleaning.
Despite fans believing Johnny Depp’s teeth are “rotting” inside his mouth, celebrity dentist Dr. Apa tells Page Six exclusively that it’s a simple case of “aggressive” wear and tear.
“He has wear, which has been a cumulative effect over a lifetime,” Apa explains.
“Wear like that, sometimes we see it in 30-year- olds in really aggressive cases and sometimes we see it in cases like Depp,” he says of the 59-year-old.
Apa, who is behind the smiles of Ramona Singer, Kendall Jenner, Simon Cowell and more celebrities, believes Depp’s passion for espresso and cigarillos is to blame for the “stainy” chompers, which he says likely haven’t been cleaned in “years.”
The teeth connoisseur suggests the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, whose teeth went viral at the Cannes Film Festival this week, get a “really good cleaning” to improve the optics of his mouth. To reverse the wear, Apa recommends porcelain veneers.
“I would do veneers because he needs his bite reestablished,” Apa explains to Page Six. “He’s worn his teeth down so much.”
Apa suggests a “rugged but natural” look for Depp, whose status as a rocker is becoming as well known as his Hollywood career.
Unfortunately, the “Tourist” actor likely won’t be interested in any extreme dental work, as he once boasted about having “rotten” teeth and “lots of cavities.”

“I’ve got loads of cavities,” he bragged in a 1995 interview with Premiere magazine.
“I had a root canal done eight years ago that’s unfinished,” he continued, calling it a “rotten little stub” at the time.
The actor, then 31, claimed he “liked” his flawed smile.
“It’s like when the Indians would make something beaded, they would always put imperfections on it,” he said, adding, “I’m proud of these.”
Depp also criticized those with a perfect set of pearly whites and said he’d hate to have them.
“When I see people with perfect teeth, it drives me up the wall,” he said. “I’d rather swallow a tick than have that!”
Miraculously, the outlet noted Depp’s breath remained odorless despite his penchant for wine and smoking.
