15 years old, Iain Armitage was born on July 15, 2008, in Savannah, Georgia, United States.


  • In the first episode of Young Sheldon, Iain Armitage had a small space between his front teeth, but the gap disappeared in another episode.
  • He might have used braces between the first and second episode shooting.
  • As of 2024, Iain’s teeth have been fixed. 

Iain Armitage is a famous actor known for his role as Sheldon Cooper in Young Sheldon, a spin-off prequel to The Big Bang Theory.

Iain Armitage Was Losing His Teeth Day By Day

Iain Armitage keeps posting photos of him losing teeth on his official Facebook handle. On March 25, 2019, he posted a photo with a caption

Another day, Another tooth!!!

Iain lost a tooth last night!

During the first episode of Young Sheldon, his teeth were very crooked, and there was a small space between his front teeth.

But in the other episode, his teeth miraculously became perfectly straight, and his fans sought the reason behind this miracle.

However, there is usually a long period between filming a pilot, getting a show picked up, and filming the rest of the episode. 

He might have had braces for the 4 to 12 months between pilot filming and another episode filming. 

Some fans have commented that he might have used a flipper or fake teeth like pagent kids do until he got his braces off.

Also, Sheldon had straight teeth in The Big Bang Theory, so he would have gotten his teeth fixed somewhere between Young Sheldon and The Big Bang Theory shooting. 

Looking at his recent photographs on his Instagram handle, his teeth seemed fixed. As a celebrity, Iain Armitage might have his teeth done to look good in the camera.
