So, you know you need braces, but putting the motivation into practice, however, can sometimes be lacking. A large portion of the procrastination involved with delaying the inevitable, is the aesthetics. No one wants the metal mouth appearance, especially living in an increasingly self-conscious society.
Well, if its motivation you need, the team at Instyle Orthodontics Maroochydore have put together their favourite list of celebrities who have had orthodontic treatment and gone on to reach new heights!
Tyra Banks confesses in her book that her teenage years were made more awkward by having glasses and chunky metal braces. Often embarrassed in social situations, Tyra became quite shy and was sometimes picked on. As she grew older, she became more confident and decided to pose for some modelling photographs taken by her mother. Tyra is now one of the most successful, recognisable and inspiring models at the pinnacle of the fashion industry plus her own TV show to boot!
Tyra is a supporter of the Invisalign treatment.
Watch the clip of Tyra talk about Invisalign on her TV show.
In 2005, Emma Watson wore braces to re-align her pearly whites. While she only wore them for 4 months, the Harry Potter star is now one of the youngest, most sought after actresses with a promising future ahead. Emma is quoted as saying “it’s important because a smile is for life” in reference to her braces.
Love him or hate him, Tom Cruise is the epitome of Hollywood stardom. His charisma, talent and enthusiasm are evident in his work but the one thing he couldn’t influence is his teeth. When you have one of the most recognisable smiles around the world, you really need to make sure your teeth are up to standard. And that’s exactly what Tom Cruise did in 2002, wearing cosmetic braces to enhance that million dollar smile.
The young royal isn’t subdued by his magnetic mouth, sporting his goofy grin with confidence whilst his wearing braces. Prince Harry shows that wearing braces doesn’t hinder him in the least. He is not the only royal to have orthodontic treatment, both his brother William and Princess Eugenie have laid back in the orthodontic chair to straighten out their toothy troubles.
Pre Hannah Montana, Miley was not so smiley with crooked adolescent teeth. Believe it or not, Miley was actually wearing braces for the majority of filming the hit Disney TV show. Lucky for her, Hannah Montana’s cover would not be blown by the sight of metal braces because she was wearing Incognito Lingual Braces.
Now considered to be the most beautiful woman in the world, Angelina Jolie had a full mouth of metal growing up. If it wasn’t for her orthodontist, that title may not apply and the partner of Brad Pitt may not have landed some of the roles she has done to date.
Her quirky approach to the characters she portrays are usually fun, comical and sometimes bizarre. But there was nothing fun about having crooked teeth; Emma needed to be fitted with braces, but for reasons not related to her genetics. Emma admits to sucking her thumb until she was 11 years old which resulted in her teeth needing re-alignment.
Unfortunately for the teenaged Niall, his teeth were not all growing in ‘one direction’, opting for braces at a young age to re-correct his wobbly woes.
