When you think of celebrities, it’s likely that glamour, beauty, and perfection are the first things that come to mind. So when we see celebrities with braces on, it’s completely understandable how jarring that can be to the pre-convinced images in our head.
But the fact of the matter is celebrities are people just like you and I. They put their pants on one leg at a time. They love their dogs and work for a living, just like everyone else.
And sometimes they need the help of orthodontic work to perfect their famous smiles.
So who are some of these stars that have lived out their oral treatment for the world to see? Let’s look at 18 celebrities that have gone through the process… Some of them may just surprise you.
1. Prince Harry :
Royals may be thought of as perfect and regal, but they aren’t necessarily born that way. Prince Harry proved that even royalty sometimes need the help of orthodontic treatment to achieve a smile fit for a prince.
2. Emma Watson :
Proving braces aren’t just for muggles, Emma wore braces for several months while she was in her early teens, which was well into the filming of the Harry Potter movie series. It showed you don’t need a magic wand to have the perfect smile, all you need is just a good orthodontist.
3. Gwen Stefani :
The singer has never been afraid to show off her eclectic sense of style. Which was especially true in the 1990’s when she sported a set of traditional braces as merely a fashion accessory. She may not have needed them to perfect her smile, but they definitely helped perfect her rocker chic look.
4. Tom Cruise :
The actor was well into adulthood when he decided to get braces for the first time. At the age of 40 years old, Tom showed the world that the perfect smile isn’t mission impossible, but mission accomplished.

6. Beyonce :
The superstar singer had so much love for her fans in 2011 that she sported a set of braces in support of all those who have had to wear them. Now, how’s that for dedication to her fans? Girls may run the world but it also proves this orthodontists help a bit too.
7. Dakota Fanning :
Dakota was only a child when she started her acting career, which meant growing up in the spotlight. So once she got her set of braces, they were shown off at movie premieres and every event she attended.
