If she is in some sort of add or actress who makes money from teeth showing, I believe she could deduct as business expense. But if she just actress who tries to look good, I believe answer - no, she can not deduct. If she could, I believe this should apply to all of us - we all try to look best for our career...Leave a Comment 305 weeks ago
