Shaun Weiss — famous for playing Goldberg in “The Mighty Ducks” — is looking like a million bucks … ’cause he’s got brand new pearly whites and he’s now over 200 days sober!!!
Shaun’s friend, Drew Gallagher, tells TMZ … Shaun received some full dental sponsorship offers from all over the country after we posted Shaun’s story about being 170 days sober … but needing new chompers.
We’re told Shaun ultimately decided to go with Dr. Gabe Rosenthal in L.A., who offered a full dental sponsorship valued between $50k-$100k. We’re told the entire process takes up to a year … since he had to get a handful of teeth removed back in July. The teeth were infected … causing him pain. Shaun got upper implants Tuesday and will get his lower implants in a few weeks, but the improvement has been drastic … he just can’t stop smiling.
As if that wasn’t already great news … Shaun’s got more reason to smile since he’s officially 265 days (and counting!!!) living a sober life. BTW, Drew had previously started a GoFundMe to help pay for the dental work and Shaun’s rehab. Now that the teeth were fixed for free, the money raised will go a long way and help pay the rehab facility plus living expenses and towards getting him a car.
TMZ broke the story … Shaun’s sober living facility in Woodland Hills changed his life, and he’s staying clean and attending outpatient meetings 5 days a week. At the time, he was looking much better and happier. But, since our July story, Shaun’s looking a lot more like his former self … and dude couldn’t look happier.
