Many Hollywood stars have orthodontics to thank for their knockout smiles.

If you’ve been considering getting braces in Columbus but still not resigned yourself to getting them yet, here are some celebrities that might change your minds. They weren’t born with gorgeous smiles, but braces certainly make it look like they were:

1. Emma Watson

Before this worldwide sensation took us by storm in the Harry Potter saga, this British actress was just like the rest of us. In fact, she wore traditional metal braces to correct her smile. Want to find out how much braces changed her smile? All you have to do is check out one of the Harry Potter movies and watch her flash that beautifully straight smile to notice the difference orthodontics makes.

2. Tom Cruise

This Mission Impossible actor got the biggest mission of his life: to get straighter teeth. At almost 40, the Hollywood star decided to opt for invisible braces with ceramic brackets to give him the smile that he now proudly shows off to paparazzi on the red carpet.

3. Gwyneth Paltrow

Before the daughter of actress Blythe Danner bloomed into the blonde bombshell we know today, her high school years were no different from most of ours. In fact she had no problem sporting her metal braces for her high school yearbook.

4. Miley Cyrus

When this Hannah Montana star needed to straighten her smile in her teen years she opted for something a little less obvious—lingual braces. These braces look just like traditional metal braces but instead of going on the front of the smile for everyone to see they are attached to the back of the teeth. That way the Disney star could still show off her smile without showing off her braces.

5. Faith Hill

At the 2013 Grammy Awards, country singer Faith Hill didn’t just dazzle the camera with her gorgeous attire but also another accessory, as well—braces. Faith Hill has joined a growing list of older celebrities who are opting for orthodontic treatment to get straighter, healthier smiles. After all, when you are constantly in the spotlight it helps to have a gorgeous smile. And Faith Hill proves that you don’t need to be a teenager to get straighter teeth.
