Mighty Ducks' Star Shaun Weiss Looks Unrecognisable As He Continues Recovery
Mighty Ducks star Shaun Weiss looks unrecognisable as he continues with his recovery.
The former child star, now 42, was fitted with a brand-new set of gnashers earlier this week after living with 'badly infected teeth' that were leaving him in 'serious pain'.
Weiss's pal Drew Gallagher, who set up a GoFundMe page to support his friend back in January, has shared an update of the actor, in which he can be seen showing off a set of sparkling teeth as he grins into the camera.
The photo is a far cry from the gaunt mugshot that shocked fans when he was arrested and charged with burglary and being under the influence of methamphetamine earlier this year.
Following the arrest, Gallagher set up the fundraising page to help his pal get clean and has been urging people to chip in and help out.
Gallager shares regular updates on how Weiss is doing and insists the actor is 'thriving' as he stays sober.
Posting at the end of last month, Gallagher wrote: "Weiss is thriving.
"His face and mouth feels like 'tenderised meat' as he recovers from each oral surgery, but he is feeling blessed to be getting a new set of permanent teeth.

"His progress has been smooth and steady and he is well over 225 days sober."
In an earlier post, Gallagher thanked LA-based dentist Dr Gabe Rosenthal for covering all the costs of his dental work.
This means the cash raised through GoFundMe could be used to pay the rent at his sober-living facility as well as to get some groceries.
He's also bought an 'inexpensive laptop' so he can go online.
The dentist's kind gesture was valued at between $50,000 and $100,000, according to Gallagher.
Back in June, Gallagher shared a snap of the pair of them out for lunch after recently moving to his new sober-living facility.
He wrote: "First lunch out in his new sober-living setup!
"We need to raise more months rent for this place, but look at how he's thriving! This new chapter is a bit scary for him but he looks and feels better than ever!"
