But the question arises why such a reputed and famous singer didn’t fix his teeth. Well, if you have been following his songs, they are pretty high-pitched.

The biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ also supported this theory as Freddie said and we quote,
“I was born with four additional incisors. More space in my mouth means more range.”
So, we can guess at this point he cared more about his voice than his looks. However, Peter Freestone cleared that the singer was also self-conscious about his teeth and used to cover the most of the time.
Did his teeth help him in singing?
Besides, other people also showed respect to conserve his vocal range despite his appearance. Ultimate classic rock presented different opinions of people about how the tongue, soft palate, and positions of teeth affect the singing pattern and their pronunciation. Some even assumed that Freddie might have a higher range if he had straightened his teeth.

He got recognized so well by the teeth only, even the star Rami Malek used the set of fake teeth to copy the look. With large overbite teeth, the audience became more related and connected to the film, “Bohemian Rhapsody“.

Was the Queen’s singing only because of his misaligned teeth? Or he would be a great singer despite his range? After the study, it is found that those teeth and his soft palate really helped him to sing. But all the credit can’t go to them.
