Dr. Richard E. Boyd Orthodontics wants you to know that braces aren’t just for kids. Even celebrities enjoy the benefits that orthodontic treatment can offer and embrace traditional braces rather than invisible braces to correct their problems. Not every patient is a candidate for Invisalign or braces behind the teeth. Below are a few recognizable names who have chosen show off their treatment, even though they are in the spotlight.
Katy Perry – recording artist and pop idol Katy Perry chose metal braces and smiles proudly during photo shoots and performances.
Faith Hill – 45-year-old country superstar Faith Hill was first seen wearing ceramic braces on the red carpet. She says “I had braces as a kid and I forgot to wear my retainer.” Tooth colored composite brackets minimize the appearance of her treatment and are less noticeable than metal brackets.
Tom Cruise – Cruise was also a fan of the tooth colored ceramic brackets. After turning 40, Cruise wore braces to correct misalignment issues when he smiles.
Gwen Stefani – Pop star and fashion diva Gwen Stefani decided to improve her smile once her band “No Doubt” hit it big. She says that she always wanted straight teeth as a child, but wasn’t able to afford them.
