Kate Middleton Paid to Have Crooked Teeth (PHOTO)


kate middletonSo, this was news to me, but apparently, Kate Middleton has much nicer teeth now that she's been named a Duchess. Sure, I'd seen photos of Kate pre-royal makeover, but I never really took notice of her pearly whites (or unpearly whites). But now that the Daily Mail (who else?) brought it to my attention -- with photographic evidence to boot -- I see it.

The Mail, diligent news corporation that they are, was also kind enough to report what exactly Duchess Catherine had done to her teeth -- and who the "French dentistry expert" is behind them. As ridiculous and trivial as this crap can be, I must say, this tidbit is pretty fascinating.

The man responsible for Kate's Smile 2.0 is a man named Didier Fillion, and he apparently performed something on the Duchess called micro-rotations, which produces "something which is natural." Dr. Fillion's friend and fellow dentist said, "You know why they look so good? Because they are not absolutely aligned." You know what? He's right!

Too often celebrities and ol' regular folk try to look perfect. (As of right now) I call it the Dancing With the Stars look: Perfect white, straight teeth; a golden tan; hair that doesn't have a strand out of place. It doesn't look good to me. It actually looks kind of creepy and Barbie-esque. It's like a bunch of real-life airbrushed people walking around. So not chic.

If you're going to go and have some sort of cosmetic surgery or dentistry, do you. I won't judge. But do yourself a favor, don't ask for whatever you're having done to look "perfect." Be it your boobs, your nose, or your teeth. It'll just wind up looking weird. And painfully obvious.

I feel the same way about clothes and hair, too. I've never been a fan of the "totally impeccable" look. I like when hair's a little messy; eyeliner's the teensiest bit smudged; and clothes are the slightest bit "undone." It looks real to me. And, dagnabbit, it looks sexy.

So, smart move avoiding the "perfect smile" smile, Duchess C. I like your style and totally would've done the same thing.

Do you like to look "perfect"?

Her bottom right tooth still looks like its trying to escape her mouth, I guess it was in the dentist's blind spot...

For me, I can always tell when someone has had their teeth absolutely straightened because it just doesn't look natural. My teeth are pretty straight but my front teeth overlap each other just a teeny bit, and I don't mind. Little things like that are what adds character to a face. 

My husband had braces as a kid, but his teeth still have their natural shape and they've settled over time a little bit, so they're not 100% perfect any more, but I like his smile better this way.

I highly doubt she had her teeth un-straightened. She does not seem that vain.

WHO CARES?? This site gets more inane by the hour. I DON'T CARE about Kate Middleton's teeth or Kate Gosselin's faclift or how J Lo celebrated Thanksgiving...

I had composite veneers done on my front 2 teeth, which were straightened with braces twice but due to my small, crowded mouth, just wouldn't stay.  It was expensive (and not even the good porcelain stuff!) but it was the best thing I ever did for myself.  They aren't perfect (they can only shave so much off of a front tooth), but I feel like my smile gained about 30 IQ points, as my previous buck-toothed grin made me look not as intelligent as i was.  Maybe that doesn't make sense, but I have SO much more self-confidence!

Not totally buying this story... but whatever. It's important to smile- do what you have to do so that you're comfortable smiling often. She looks lovely.

I dont think I know what looking perfect is. I dont think Ive ever looked perfect in my life. I do know that I strive to look nice though. As long as I conquer that, Im good to go.
