Sugar Bear From "Honey Boo Boo" Got A Big Makeover, And He's Legit Glowing Slash Smiling For The First Time

You probably remember Sugar Bear as Honey Boo Boo's father, and his new smile is truly something to celebrate — like, thank God he got that taken care of, because that before picture looks straight-up painful.

It's hard to believe, but it's been 10 years since Honey Boo Boo, aka Alana Thompson, graced our presence.

And here's the after:

He told Today, "I can't stop looking at myself in the mirror."

Sugar Bear is feeling so confident that he actually posted his first full smile picture on his Instagram feed.

So, let's celebrate a healthy smile and positive transformation.
