Hannah Bailey

Hannah Bailey, 31, has wanted to straighten her teeth since she was a child, but said she could only now afford the £3,400 fees. “I wasn’t bullied, but people would say things like horse teeth. “That always stayed with me,” she said. “I avoid smiling, I hold my hand up to my mouth when I laugh, so it will be quite life-changing.” The self-employed childminder, from Maidstone in Kent, is part-way through a six-month treatment.

Despite being self-conscious about her teeth as a teenager, the fear of braces drawing unwanted attention turned her off, she said. Since having them fitted, the response from friends and family had been overwhelmingly positive, she said. However, she fears some people will view her decision as vain and similar to having plastic surgery.

“It’s strange. As children you are encouraged by dentists [to have your teeth straightened], but when you are an adult people think it’s a vanity thing.” While she understands how “textbook perfect” celebrity smiles can inspire self-consciousness, Hannah says they did not influence her. “What I’m going for is straight teeth, not the Hollywood smile.”

She was also picked up by BBC in an article about adults choosing teeth straightening: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-49183879
