Smile Makeover: Gwen Stefani's Transformation
By NewBeauty Editors |
She is the punk rock girl-next-door turned hit-making femme fatale of the music scene, and her style over the journey has been anything but ordinary. Gwen Stefani has kept us guessing since she gained popularity back in the early 90s and today, she is as fierce as ever—just with a whiter, straighter smile.
For her smile makeover, Gwen started with braces. According to Huntersville, NC, cosmetic dentist Ross Nash, DDS "There’s a lot we can do to make the teeth look straighter, but orthodontics are the most conservative treatment." Not only are traditional braces "conservative," they are rather unsightly past the teen years. But apparently, Gwen liked the look of braces so she opted for them instead of removable plastic aligners, the less noticeable and more popular teeth straightening method among adults.
In addition to braces, Gwen has also had her teeth whitened, a treatment recommended after a bout with braces. Immediately after they are removed, there can often be a difference in color between where the tooth was bonded to the braces and the part that was exposed to staining from foods and drinks, requiring either professional whitening or other at-home options.
Today, with straighter teeth, a whiter smile and her classic red lipstick, Gwen looks better than ever.
