In the video, Strahan told his dentist Dr. Lee Gause that he didn’t tell anyone he was planning to undergo the procedure since they would tell him not to do it. He pointed out, “I've got to do what I want to do for myself now."
Along with calling the moment “50 years in the making,” Strahan exclaimed, “I love it!”
While Dr. Gause didn't confirm if the procedure was temporary or permanent, he told E! News, "There are lots of miraculous things that can be done with cosmetic dentistry and Michael Strahan has probably the most signature gap on television. It just shows the miracles that are possible with cosmetic dentistry to be able to close a gap that is the size of Michael Strahan's. I think he looks great. I think he was pretty excited about it."
Since he shared the video so close to April Fools' Day, it is unknown if the procedure really happened!
Last week, Strahan tweeted, "I rock my gap with pride! It's who I am!"
In 2012, Michael opened up about his past plans to close the gap. He told Elle, “I was really close to closing it up. I was at the dentist having him do mock-ups. I thought about it, man."
“There's so much pressure to be perfect. You can fix everything now. For me, I made the conscious effort to say, 'This is who I am. I'm not perfect,’” Michael went on. “I don't want to try to be perfect. At this point, I don't think my kids would recognize me without it. They'd be like, 'Who is this stranger in the house? Call 911!'"
