Do you think you are the only one on the planet who has to wear braces while your friends have shiny white smiles?
Don’t you worry — there are celebrities who now flash their perfect pearly white teeth at the camera also sported braces in the past. Right from Zac Efron, Justin Bieber to Kendall Jenner, all of them have been in the orthodontist’s chair.
Whether it’s having a slight overbite or having a few crooked teeth, anyone and everyone can get their misaligned teeth corrected. It might seem like celebrities have been born with the perfect everything — but that’s far from the truth.
Here are 10 celebrities with braces:
Now that Kendall Jenner is so much more than a face on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”, you’ll be surprised to know that she had orthodontic treatment twice when she was a teenager. The supermodel had her first set of braces when she was 13, and then again got Invisalign when she was 17, and rocked them with supermodel-esque confidence.
If your parents have nicknamed you is ‘Miley,’ shortened from ‘smiley,’ you’d want to flash a perfect smile. The pop singer got lingual braces, which are nearly invisible, to straighten her teeth. She also wore porcelain veneers after her treatment to make sure she can flash the perfect celebrity smile.
Zac Efron’s teeth have been the subject of many tabloid headlines. Zac Efron might have the perfect smile right now, but when the star of High School Musical began his career, Efron had many orthodontic problems like having a front tooth gap and excessive spacing between his teeth.
Justin Bieber got orthodontic treatment done when he was 16. Bieber suffered from a common orthodontic problem of crowded teeth. Crowding means his upper and lower teeth overlap each other, which can cause problems like a build-up of plaque, food getting stuck in the teeth, and many other problems if left untreated. Bieber wore a set of clear aligners to get the smile that now charms ‘Beliebers’ all over the world.
Hermione Granger has oversized front teeth in the Harry Potter book that she gets fixed in the fourth book with a little bit of magic. But Emma Watson got fitted for braces and wore them for four months in between filming the third and fourth Harry Potter films so that it wouldn’t hamper her filming schedule.
Tom Cruise wins hearts with his charming, million-dollar smile. But this winning smile hasn’t come to him easy. Like us, he has had his set of orthodontic procedures to get the perfect smile. In 2002, Cruise proudly debuted his ceramic braces to the shutterbugs and paparazzi, and inspired others by sending out the message that it’s never too late to get your teeth fixed.
The No Doubt singer started wearing metal braces back in 1999 when her music career was in full swing — and made it a fashion statement. She proudly flaunted her braces to the cameras and rocked the red carpet with her traditional metal braces.
British royalty visits the orthodontist too! Just like normal teenagers, Megan Markle’s husband needed to wear a full set of metal braces when he was growing up. Prince Harry’s older brother, Prince Williams, also sported a metal-mouth while growing up — making it almost sound like a tradition in the Royal family.
Yep, even one of the most celebrated sports star of our time has needed to wear braces at a point in time. The footballer opted to get his teeth straightened when he was in his late teenage years by wearing a pair of ceramic braces.
Hollywood superstar and UN Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie has also sported a metal mouth in the earliest stages of her career.
The time till your braces come off might seem eons away, but if these superstars can grin and bear it (and bare their teeth), so can you!
