Female fans have one more reason to swoon over One Direction’s Niall Horan—his perfectly aligned teeth. The 19-year-old had his braces removed in April, as the E! Online reports:
If you thought Niall Horan was cute before, wait until you see him now.
The One Direction cutie got his braces off Wednesday, and like everyone who’s ever suffered through months or years of metal hardware in their mouth, he was thrilled!
“Morning! This is it! I’m goin’ to the dentist’s! I think this is my last hour with braces!” the 19-year-old tweeted Wednesday. “Oh, how I’m gonna miss them! Naaaaaaat!”
He even treated fans to a before and after shot of his chompers, showing just how much of improvement those braces really made. (Though the braces, for the moment, will appear live on as part of his wax figure.)
Exciting stuff! Word of advice though, Niall: Remember to wear your retainers!
It’s not just teenaged heartthrobs that are getting braces now. At 45 years old, country music superstar Faith Hill debuted her braces at the Grammy red carpet in February. Speaking of heartthrobs, Tom Cruise also decided to get braces when he turned 40.
However, you don’t have to be a Hollywood A-lister to see the benefits of braces. When your teeth become crooked all of a sudden, there’s a possibility they’re more exposed to bacteria, which makes them more vulnerable to cavities. On the other hand, if your teeth are crowded, they are harder to brush and floss, causing tartar and plaque buildup which leads to gum disease.
These problems, called malocclusions, are the expertise of orthodontists. You can consult a reliable Denver orthodontist, like those at Cody Dental Group, to have overbites, underbites or other malocclusions corrected. Orthodontists can even help alleviate jaw pain or headaches that are sometimes caused by misaligned teeth.
Everyone, regardless of age, occupation, social or marital status deserves perfectly aligned teeth. You don’t have to go to Hollywood for that silver-screen smile—a dependable orthodontist in Denver can help you get that perfect smile you’ve always admired in your favorite celebrities.
