Living and working in the public eye, famous people and royalty never have the luxury of not looking their best. This can create a bit of a dilemma when it comes to dentistry, orthodontics in particular. Many celebs can hideaway for a few days to wait for a little swelling to subside but if you are going to wear a brace 24 hours a day for 6-12 months, there’s no way to hide it for that long!
When appropriate, many celebrities have turned to clear braces, also known as Clear Braces in Clapham to straighten out their smiles without the use of regular metal braces, which would certainly raise a few eyebrows.
With a highly polished image and a long list of very successful movies, you could be forgiven for assuming that Tom Cruise had been born with his pearly whites in neat rows. But this was not so and he has had continual and extensive work done, stating that his first invisible brace treatment was with Invisalign back while filming Minority Report in the early 2000’s.
Despite having worn braces as an adolescent that mostly resolved any clinical misalignment, the use of a clear aligner in adulthood was required to give that smile its finishing touches.
Yes, the world-famous Oprah Winfrey has had orthodontic treatment. In fact, Oprah has stated that it took years of orthodontics to get those pearly whites lined-up and she has been seen using clear aligners on several occasions as an adult.
She has even been seen using aligners on her show, which could be something to look out for if you are a fan of this lady.
As a world-famous athlete, she has worked so hard to hit the peak of her athletic achievements in tennis but she has shared that her orthodontic journey began at 16. Regular training both on the tennis court and through cross-training was intense and Serena needed something safer and more convenient than the traditional metal brace. That’s where clear aligners came in and now, she has a great smile to match her many wins at Wimbledon.
When you’re a supermodel, your appearance is the main part of the business and cosmetic procedures are considered an investment in your career. At the end of a long photo shoot, the model got an email from her agent; an image processing team had been spending hours removing an unusual shadow from her teeth from the last session. Booking an appointment with her dentist, she found out one of her found teeth was migrating forward, casting the shadow. The normal solution would have been a brace but that could have put her out of work for months at best, but Invisalign sorted the misalignment and hasn’t disrupted her work to date!
A Disney starlet, she has had the mixed blessing of a famous childhood turn famous teen and has if being a teen was not drastic enough, the need for adolescent braces came knocking and could have derailed her career. But Invisalign was there to help and she has since done several social media posts talking about how she’s very impressed with the aligner. Her treatment continues to go well and she keeps her fans posted about her progress.
