Singer Faith Hill has braces as everyone at the Grammy Awards noticed. The reports say "I had braces as a kid. I forgot to wear my retainer." and also that her 15 and 14 year old daughters, Gracie and Maggie, also have them.
I know everyone is convinced these supposedly invisible braces are less obvious and that somehow makes them better, but I still think they're a lot more unsightly and I wish she just had real metal braces. I wonder what the girls wear? I hope some magazine does a whole spread on the family in braces!
Here's another picture.
Thanks for posting this. She had braces at some country music awards show a couple of months ago, too.
I guess I can understand why she'd go for the "clear" braces, considering her profession. I do think they're less obtrusive - especially on camera - and generally perceived as more "adult" than metal. But I agree that metal braces are better. It's not like everyone doesn't know you have braces just because they're the clear variety. I notice them on people all the time (though I may be more attuned to that than most people).
I do like that she has what look like pink ligatures. I think that's a nice little feminizing touch. I also like that she's not shy about showing the braces, talking about them, etc.
My wife says she thinks clear braces look like someone has bad plaque on their teeth. She says if she ever got braces they'd be metal. Maybe someday I'll be able to persuade her...
I'm not a fan of the clear braces either. I like braces, so for me, it's generally "the more metal, the better." But clear braces sometimes look like the wearer just ate a slice of white bread and still has a bunch of doughy stuff stuck to the front of their teeth. At least with metal braces, everyone knows right away that they're braces!
She was still wearing them at the Academy of Country Music awards show last night. Looks like she went to a less-obvious archwire, though, compared to the metal wire she had at the Grammys. You can barely even see the braces in the ACM pics.
I just watched a video from the CMAs, and it looks like Faith got her braces off. But maybe the clear braces worked really well and I just couldn't see them!
