Jewel has always been a girl committed to her art. The musician poured her heart into her debut album "Pieces Of You," receiving four Grammy nominations and topping Billboard charts with her singles "Who Will Save Your Soul," "You Were Meant For Me" and "Foolish Games."
It's no surprise then that the singer-songwriter decided to completely throw herself into her new role as June Carter Cash in Lifetime's upcoming biopic, "The June Carter Cash Story."

Even though she received scrutiny for her smile being crooked when she first came out, the singer has made it pretty clear that she was happy with her teeth the way they were.
The star tweeted a photo of her transformation:
