ALPHARETTA, GA – Even with the most beautiful appearances in the world, celebrities still have braces put on from time to time to improve their smile. They are looking for the same permanent results you hope to enjoy. With advanced technology, it’s easier than ever to camouflage braces and have a comfortable fit for a shorter amount of time.
Here are five celebrities who’ve gotten attention for wearing braces:
1. Khloe Kardashian
Khloe Kardashian is most notable for her beautiful looks and fashionable style. Complementing her trendy looks, she opted for Invisalign, a discreet orthodontic treatment. The plan is to correct slightly rotated and crooked teeth. Khloe was 28 when she finally went to the orthodontist for correction and was clear to remind people that she does not have braces in the traditional sense when she tweeted a reply to her followers, “Thanks baby but I don’t have braces.” Her dentist explained that she is a perfectionist and wanted to look her absolute best with an easy method that could enhance her smile, making her appear even more glamorous.
2. One Direction Member, Niall Horan
Adored by many of Johns Creek orthodontist Dr. Nima Hajibaik’s younger patients, teenage heartthrob Niall Horan, of One Direction was not afraid to have his teeth corrected in the midst of his rising stardom. He is now showing off his straight, pearly whites to thousands of people on his group’s 19-country world tour. Originally, his teeth were extremely crooked and he had a complete makeover, correcting the front teeth. The correction took about a year and in early 2013, the singer expressed his happiness, also on Twitter, about having an improved smile once his clear braces were permanently removed.
3. Faith Hill
Country music star, Faith Hill, proudly wore her braces at the Grammy Awards with an elegant up-do and incredible gown. Even in her 40s, the singer had the braces put on to correct teeth that moved and had created noticeable gaps because she failed to wear her retainer over the years. She is a good example of why tooth care is important to keep up with, including your retainer. Teeth have a memory and want to go back to their original positions.
4. Gwen Stefani
With hot pink hair, Gwen Stefani couldn’t help but pair her outgoing look with a set of braces that were seen a number of times on the red carpet and worn purely for their look and style. Her choice increased the cool factor of braces, making it easier for young girls to adapt to their new look once they get their own braces.
The star seemed to love the look in 1999, always wanting braces as a teen, and wasn’t afraid to pair it with bold lipstick and flashy makeup in hopes of creating a fashion trend.
5. Tom Cruise
Even while making blockbuster hits over the years, Hollywood legend Tom Cruise wore invisible braces back in 2002 to improve his appearance by straightening up his mildly crooked teeth. He only wore the braces for a few months before his teeth were in tip-top shape and camera-ready, once again.
