Apparently it is no longer embarrassing to wear braces! This recent development is a trend that has all of us very excited, as previously there have been problems with adults who have ruined their looks and have had to deal with completely avoidable dental problems because of a failure to put on braces in early childhood. Now, with health consciousness becoming more and more mainstream, the time has been ripe for some time to actually overhaul the image of orthodontics that most people have, as an ugly, unattractive and painful, sex appeal ruining device, and correct it with the truth of what braces are: a tool to improve your health and looks. As spending more time on your health and looks becomes acceptable, so the change in how we look at braces also comes with it. Nothing proves this more than the fact that celebrities around the world are proudly showing off their orthodontic devices, and we have compiled a few pictures to help illustrate this point.
Gwen Stefani and Katy Perry both had a fling with orthodontics, and both were more than willing to show off theirs in red carpet appearances.
