If the most glamorous, popular and sought after starry eyed celebrities are using them, surely wearing a brace can no longer be seen to be an ordeal reserved for the painful years of adolescence?
Take Holly Willoughby for example, one of the latest celebrities to hit the headlines with braces. Posing for Twitter, the close-up picture showed Holly smiling widely in braces that appeared to be near-invisible, ultra-thin white metal wires. Beneath the picture she wrote, ‘Brace yourself, I’ve got braces!’
Holly isn’t the first celebrity to opt for braces. Other celebrities, such as Marks and Spencer’s protégée Myleene Klass, have also used braces to perfect their smile, a reassuring sight for the general public, particularly young women who class these celebrities as emulative role models. Surely with such beautiful, iconic women wearing them, ‘normal folk’ need no longer fear the humiliation of ‘going public’?
Why a Celebrity Smile is Priceless
Holly Willoughby is sending out a positive message to people who want to have a brace fitted. Braces are an essential way to create a lovely, straight smile and will boost your overall dental hygiene, making it easier for you to floss and brush between your teeth. A straighter smile will also improve your overall bone structure.
Let’s face it, when it comes to sorting out the important stuff no amount of vanity can get in the way. Everybody wants their teeth to look and feel good, and if the gorgeous women of TV are happy to get their teeth straightened at the expense of a little metal wiring, then why shouldn’t we?
Just do it!
Braces have progressed a lot since metal brackets and there are now a range of discreet braces available such as Invisalign, a clear plastic aligner that fits over the teeth and can even be removed at your own discretion. You needn’t be stuck in a rut when it comes to selecting the best brace for your teeth, so talk to your dentist about finding the most suitable brace to achieve your perfect smile today.
