Every time a high profile celebrity appears in public for the first time with braces, the media circus is sent into a frenzy. Tom Cruise, Faith Hill, Emma Watson, Angelina Jolie. These are a few of the stars who braved the media spotlight under the orthodontic spell.
But what about the celebs who wore braces without you ever noticing? Who are they, and how could they possibly have gotten away with it? They didn’t hide away in a mansion, nor did they wear a removable orthodontic device while they slept. The secret – lingual braces.
Prince William, Duke of Cambridge
In 2009, an overhead aerial shot revealed a wire running behind his royalty’s teeth. He managed countless public appearances along with tens of thousands of photo shoots without a single person noticing.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge
The former Kate Middleton, Prince William’s wife, endured perhaps the most successful secret orthodontic journey of all time. There was never a single picture capturing her wearing braces.
Although not a member of the royal family, singer, pianist, media figure and model, Myleene Klass underwent an orthodontic transformation with lingual braces. It wasn’t until she decided to have a little fun by literally opening her mouth to show them off at a media appearance, that the public became aware of the treatment.
