Former X-Factor contestant Cher Lloyd is continuing her onslaught of publicity in the US and she’s even gone so far as to alter her teeth to get that famous Hollywood smile that is so popular on the other side of the pond. The 20-year-old smiled widely for the cameras at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas last week, and showed off a brand new set of porcelain veneers that were noticeably larger and whiter than her natural teeth.
When the singer first appeared on UK TV screens in 2010, she had an obvious gap between her front two teeth, giving her a more individual look, but it seems that spending so much time among the rich and famous is LA has given her some insecurities about her appearance. She was interviewed by Alan Carr for More magazine in June last year and told the publication ‘I hate my teeth. I hate them, I look like a complete and utter rabbit.’ When she was quizzed about veneers she was against the idea, saying ‘Oh I dunno, they just look weird. Like Chloe’s from TOWIE. If she gets anything else done, she might as well stand up at Madame Tussauds.’
It seems the younger starlet has since changed her mind and decided to join the Hollywood trend by having her dental problems fixed using dental veneers rather than some form of orthodontics. The dental work has been done some time in the last six months, to coincide with the release of her debut album Sticks + Stones, which reached number nine in the US album charts.
