The need for orthodontic treatment is common in all social groups, and the convenience of clear aligners hasn’t been lost on celebrities who have to be extremely conscious of their public image. The ability to straighten and treat orthodontic issues without metal or traditional brace has been more than useful, with the added benefit of being able to remove them for brief public appearances or an interview close up!
The difference beyond the obvious visual ones is the clever way aligners push on teeth from multiple angles and push on different parts of the tooth, unlike a brace where all of the forces are transmitted from the archwire to the tooth via a metal bracket glued front and centre.
These effective yet subtle tooth straighteners have found their way into more than a few famous mouths letting them realign their teeth without the paparazzi storm. So, which members of the Hollywood elite have worn Invisalign in Clapham?
The source of Khloe’s fame may be in doubt, but her teeth are immaculate and that was partially due to treatment with Invisalign, which she used as an alternative to a full brace to prepare her for the endless selfies. Could she have been as prominent on the Kardashians without it? Who knows, but it didn’t hurt her chances!
Yes, the Disney star that sprang out of High School Musical to wow audiences in The Lucky One with washboard abs! But a quick look back at his Disney days and you see that tooth gap. This may have been seen as cute in his early career, but since he wanted to be seen as a grown-up he has closed it with the help of clear aligners.
Eva, whose most famous role is Gabrielle on Desperate Housewives, has used adult orthodontics. She has always looked to improve her appearance for herself and professional reasons and her overlapping lower front teeth were resolved with Invisalign, something she spoke about in interviews with InStyle magazine. Obviously, a full brace could never be an option for her and praising the results she was seeing before her eyes when using an invisible aligner and owing a boost in confidence to the smile the brace created.
Katherine Heigl went from Roswell to Gray’s Anatomy, blowing up and growing up in the spotlight of TV, but she needed help growing out of her ‘childhood’ smile and used clear aligners in the run-up to her wedding to the songwriter Josh Kelley. Closing her ‘cutie’ gaps into a sophisticated and striking smile.
He may be seen as more of a tear away than anything else now but in his rise to fame, clear aligners were Justin Bieber’s go-to orthodontics taking them out during interviews and when singing but otherwise living in them.
He published a few YouTube videos talking about them and how it was hard to keep in contact with an orthodontist on tour and how much more convenient aligners are. So, at least if you are ever super busy at work or with family commitments, you will know that aligners may be a suitable option if you ever want a straighter smile.
