There’s no shame in the braces game!

Whether you’re deciding on getting braces for yourself or braces for someone in your care, we want to remind you of the wonders braces can do both medically and aesthetically. A number of famous celebrities have had braces both as adults and as adolescents. Don’t believe us? We’ve put together a list of the most famous, beautiful people who have ever had braces.

Often times people forget the medical importance of braces because of the beautiful result. However, braces can fix an improper bite, create space in the mouth, and more that benefit your chewing ability and speech development. Twisted teeth, a crowded mouth, or an incorrect bite can cause medical issues like infection, sores, and chronic pain. Now, add that to the bad self-esteem that comes with hating your smile and you have a recipe for misery.

In addition to the medical benefits, braces do transform your face with a straight, bright, pearly smile. Let’s take a look at some famous celebrity smiles that have changed because of braces!
