Celebrity’s Orthodontic Journey # 2: Tom Cruise

Think you’re too old for braces? Ask Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise. The star of Top Gun, Jerry Maguire, and Edge of Tomorrow, who was 39 years old when he first ventured into the orthodontist’s office! After appearing on magazine covers for nearly two decades–with a crooked smile–he finally took the plunge when one of his own children needed to get braces, and decided he would join in as well! As every magazine photo and movie of him since 2002 testifies: the rest is history.

Instead of the image of wires and rubber bands many of us have when we think about braces, Tom opted for a more discrete ceramic type, the only visible part of which was a thin wire running across the front of his teeth. He wore them for about eighteen months, and was able to have the wire removed when he was doing a movie, then put back on after. In fact, many adults, like Tom, choose ceramic braces, but if those are too obtrusive, there are also clear aligners that are nearly invisible! Or maybe you’re interested in getting Wildsmile braces, metal braces emblazoned with charms and colors? We work with you to choose a style of braces that meets your specific health needs, while also fitting your personal or professional lifestyle.

Even if you’re not planning to walk down the red carpet anytime soon, straightening your teeth is a great way to improve your smile and boost your self-confidence. What are you waiting for? Come on in for a consultation with Dr. Patricia at Beach Braces today. She is a cutting-edge orthodontist, and one of the most qualified in Southern California.
