Today Show: Faith Hill Braces at the Grammys
A lot of exciting events happened during the Grammys but one of the biggest stories from the night was Faith Hill showing up with braces and looking beautiful wearing them. Twitter was blowing up over the braces, with one person tweeting, “if Faith Hill can rock braces at the Grammys, so can I.”
She didn’t get the braces just for the Grammys though. Hill has been sporting her braces for a couple months now. She told an Arizona country music station she has to wear braces as an adult because she never wore her retainer when she was younger. So, if any of your kids are complaining about their braces make sure to tell them Faith Hill is wearing them for the second time in her life and she said she wants everyone to wear their retainer so they don’t have to get braces when they are older.
One Today Show contributor was hopeful Faith Hill may inspire more adults to wear braces when in the past they may have been self-concious about it.
Today Show: Invisalign Review
Dr. Jennifer Jablow said braces are becoming an accessory for some adults. She sees a number of adults walking into her office asking for braces because their teeth have shifted over the years. Dr. Jablow said your teeth are going to shift as you get older, due to hormones or grinding or any number of other reasons, and not wearing a retainer when you were younger is going to give your teeth a better chance to shift.
Even if there may not be a way to stop your teeth from shifting and you need to get braces, Dr. Jablow said many adults are opting for Invisalign, clear, removable braces that can be worn at any time. Although not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign, Dr. Jablow said the people who are candidates will be paying about the same amount of money as someone with classic braces.
Braces don’t hurt any longer either, said Dr. Jablow. I’m not sure if they ever did hurt, but if that was something you were afraid of, don’t be scared anymore. If Faith Hill has the courage to wear braces to the Grammys, then everyone should have the courage to get their teeth fixed.
