The Only Way Is Essex star James ‘Arg’ Argent has recently attended an appointment to see how dental veneers could improve his teeth. The 22-year old is hoping to look and feel better when standing next to girlfriend Lydia, admitting that he sometimes wonders if people are thinking ‘what’s she doing with him?’ when the pair are seen together in public.
During the consultation, Arg decided that he liked the porcelain veneers, but wasn’t keen on the ‘American white’ version, asking if there was a shade in between that and ‘Essex white.’ However, the reality star was shocked to learn that the procedure would cost him between £4,500 and £5,000. The price tag doesn’t seem to have dampened his enthusiasm though, as he later tweeted fans to find out what shade of veneers would suit him best, and asking ‘Who thinks gaps in teeth are sexy?’
TOWIE co-star Mark Wright was dubious about the decision to straighten his smile, when Arg confided with him over a game of football. ‘Don’t do all that stuff just for Lydia,’ he was told, ‘You are who you are, you are a good looking kid. Look in that mirror, at who you are, and say ‘I am Mr Argent.’ Unfortunately, Arg might have complicated things for himself as he confessed he hadn’t been to the dentist in more than ten years, saying he couldn’t remember when his last check-up was.
