The Embraced Beauty: Hashiena Ayub

Bracing for Stardom: Elvin Ng
When this Mediacorp heartthrob first started acting, he did so with braces. It may have hindered his speech in the beginning but it also gave him perfectly straight teeth and an endorsement deal with a major oral care brand!

British Belle with Tinsel Teeth: Emma Watson
Everyone’s favourite British star is known to have worn braces as a teenager, saying it’s important because a smile is for life. Her quick teeth-straightening stint was done in-between filming for the Harry Potter movie franchise, so her tinsel teeth never made it to the silver screen.

Beyond Diva-licious: Beyonce Knowles
Beyonce had her teeth straightened as a teenager but she donned braces again in 2011 for a very different reason. The diva said she wanted to spread the message that “faces with braces” can still have “grins that win”. Talk about diva power!

Grace and Braces: Faye Dunaway
This glamorous Hollywood star and multiple Global Globe winner takes the cake for being 61 years of age when she put on braces! When asked why, she was quoted as saying that it was “time to get something done” after letting go of her teeth for years. Better late than never, if you ask us!

Up for Seconds: Faith Hill
This country singer put on braces, for the second time, at 45 years of age. Hers was admittedly a case of relapse because she hadn’t been wearing her retainers (oops!) but kudos to her for fixing the problem and doing so with a wide smile on the red carpet!

Royal Metal: Prince Harry
Even royals need some orthodontic help, it seems. Prince Harry, fourth in line to the British throne, wore braces in his younger days and never shied away from the camera despite his metal brackets. His brother, the dashing Duke of Cambridge, however, is known to have been more discreet, choosing hidden braces instead.

Netflix for the Teeth: Katherine Heigl
This former Grey’s Anatomy star received Invisalign treatment in 2007 as part of her wedding preparations; can’t fault her for wanting a perfect smile on her big day! She called her near-invisible aligners “Netflix for the teeth” — and we certainly can’t argue with that!

Straight for the Goal: Cristiano Ronaldo
When this footballer was 18 years old and just starting his professional career with Manchester United, he is said to have worn ceramic braces to correct his teeth. It was a good move, especially since the world star has plenty of reasons to smile now.
