The new batch of contestants for The X Factor may not have time to get teeth whitening treatment before their first live television appearance.
This is according to cosmetic dentistry expert Mervyn Druian, who brightened the smiles of last year’s wannabes, but told Dentistry.co.uk the schedules are so strict this year that the new entrants may not get the same care.
“The X Factor has said that they are very tight on timings so they may not be able to get the finalists’ teeth whitened at all,” a spokesperson commented.
Controversy has already been raging surrounding some of some of the contestants who made it through to the first stage of live finals.
Cher Lloyd and Katie Waissel were both told they had been successful by Cheryl Cole, despite neither completing their final auditions at the judge’s house.
Meanwhile, Gamu Nhengu was eliminated on last Sunday’s episode even after a near-flawless performance.
