6 Celebrities With Braces Before and After Wonderful Transformations

Were all familiar with the term Hollywood smile the beautiful, straight, white, perfect smiles that grace our screens and glossy magazines. But not all celebrities are born with the perfect smile they need the help of a specialist orthodontist.

Its not the most likely of accessories youd expect the rich and famous to be sporting, but orthodontic treatment is the go-to for many of our famous friends. Delta Goodrem, Gwen Stefani, Niall Horan, Serena Williams and Kylie Minogue are just a few of the celebrities whose life-changing orthodontic treatment to fix their crooked teeth gave them their confident Hollywood smiles.

From rocking traditional metal braces a-la Gwen Stefani, to less-visible ceramic see-through braces as sported by Tom Cruise, there areorthodontic treatment optionsto suit everyone and every lifestyle. Invisible or lingual braces attached to the inside surfaces of your teeth are a popular option, and clear plastic aligners such as Invisalign are often worn by celebs looking for something more discrete (as seen on red carpet royalty including Katherine Heigl, Justin Bieber, Khloe Kardashian and Zac Efron).

Here are some of our favourite celebrities with braces who underwent massive smile transformations with comments from our experts:

Supermodel Cindy (now 50 years old!) had old school, chunky metal braces back in the 70s to fix her overbite and crooked teeth.

Daniel Ricciardo with braces

The Australian Formula 1 driver is famous for his big toothy grin, but it wasnt always perfect. Daniel Riccaiardos teeth were crowded and crooked until he saw an orthodontist. Daniel underwent treatment (opting for ceramic braces) whilst he was driving F1 and it certainly didnt slow him down! In a 2014 interview he stated Im really glad I got braces when I did because obviously its paying off now and, especially if you smile a lot, its nice to have that confidence in knowing your teeth are good. I encourage it. Even if youre in your 20s, its good stuff!

When Emmas acting career started taking off after being cast as Hermione in the popular Harry Potter series, Emma Watson decided to fix her moderately crooked teeth and achieve a beautiful smile with the help of an orthodontist.

Tom Cruise with braces

Tom has one of the most famous smiles in showbiz, but he started his career with discoloured, broken, missing and misaligned teeth. Over the years hes had numerous orthodontic and cosmetic dental procedures to camouflage his complex problems. In 2002, gossip magazines were awash with photos of Tom Cruise at age 40 sporting ceramic braces in order to fine tune his smile and bite.

Despite all of the dental work hes had over the years, Tom remains quite notorious in dental and orthodontic circles for his residual smile asymmetry. If you look closely, youll notice that his upper front teeth are shifted to the left of his facial midline. It just goes to show, there are some minor cosmetic imperfections that simply have to be accepted, no matter how famous you are!

How much will braces cost?

When it comes to braces, price might not be a consideration for our famous friends, but you dont need to be on a celebrity salary to get your own perfect smile. With advanced treatment techniques, private health insurance and payment plans, your perfect smile is just around the corner.

So whether youre considering traditional braces or a more invisible alternative to braces, only an orthodontist has the training, experience and expert knowledge to be able to offer you the full suite of treatment options and give you the confidence youre in the best hands.

Katy Perry is not afraid to suffer for her artor at least goof on her pinup image. In the John Hughes-inspired music video for Last Friday Night, the pop queen is transformed into her nerdy alter ego, Kathy Beth Terry, complete with shiny braces and a fierce headgear. But thanks to some help from her friend Rebecca Black, the headgear comes off, the miniskirt goes on, and she becomes a bombshellalbeit one with a set of braces, who still doesnt quite fall for the geeky guy (played by Glees Kevin McHale) who also wears braces.
