The cast of reality show The Only Way Is Essex are known for their fake tans, lashings of make-up and their super-white dental veneers; but one of their regular cast-members has decided to break the mould and go for braces instead, to straighten her teeth out rather than undergo dental treatment to place veneers. 23-year-old Billie Faiers is a familiar face on the popular ITV2 show and she has decided to undergo orthodontic treatment using Cfast braces that can barely be seen when they are fixed in place.
Billie was recently photographed out and about in Brentwood, Essex, and the invisible braces could hardly be detected even when she was smiling for the cameras. However, it seems that her treatment has not all been smooth sailing and Billie could be seen gritting her teeth in pain as she examined them in a mirror at Minnie’s Boutique – where she works. When braces are first applied they can cause some discomfort as they put pressure onto the teeth to move them into a better position.
Earlier this week the reality star tweeted about her orthodontic treatment right after having her braces fitted, saying ‘Thank you to @cfastortho and @HarleyStreetDG for helping me get my new smile.’ Other stars that have had similar treatment include Holly Willoughby, Alexandra Burke, and ex-TOWIE regular Kirk Norcross, who all chose braces over veneers.
