London, Aug 9 (ANI): TV personality and model Abbey Clancy has revealed that she used invisible braces to correct her ‘crooked’ smile, a secret that’s been tipped to boost her earnings by 5 million pounds.
The 23-year-old has revealed how she used the invisible dental brace the Invisalign for just under a year to overcome insecurities about her looks.
Peter Crouch’s fiancee Abbey underwent ‘Invisalign’ treatment at the Tracey Bell clinic in Liverpool.
Patients are fitted with invisible aligners, which can be removed to eat, drink and floss.
Abbey also received tooth whitening and oral hygiene treatment at the clinic.
“My teeth were goofy and crooked and I felt they stuck out,” the Daily Star quoted Clancy as saying.
“In pictures it was always obvious to me. I would never smile to show my teeth in photos.
“I didn’t know about the clear braces available until I went to Tracey Bell.
“When I was younger I was a model and you can’t model with a conventional brace.
“I used to present and film The Fashion Show with the braces in. I have done photoshoots with them in as well. I was shy about smiling and it gave me more confidence,” she added.
Abbey, now based in Portsmouth, returns to the Liverpool clinic for regular check-ups.
“I feel loads more confident and I love the result,” Clancy said.
“If you are thinking about invisible braces, go for it. It’s a small price to pay for confidence and a perfect smile,” she added.
TV executives believe that Abbey will earn millions more thanks to the new smile.
“She seemed to scowl a lot in the past and that held back her career. Now it’s sorted out, a smiley Abbey is much more attractive for TV. This could prove to be a 5-milion-pound smile,” one TV executive said. (ANI)
