Khloe Kardashian gets braces? No, don’t call her Invisaligns that
Khloe Kardashian Odom doesn’t have braces, but she is working on perfecting her smile with tooth-straightening apparatus.
At age 28 the reality TV star is working on her smile but, thanks to technology and progress, she’s doing it the 21st century way: with Invisalign, a teeth-straightening process using clear, removable tooth aligners that are quite different from metal braces.
“Thank you @drkevinsands for being the best dentist ever!” Kardashian Odom tweeted last Thursday. “If only we could all be put to sleep like Lamar LOL maybe next time :)”
And her doctor was sure to echo the sentiment, posting a pic of himself with his patient.
“The beautiful @KhloeKardashian stopped by, always a pleasure to have her and Lamar visit!” he wrote.
The wife of NBA star Lamar Odom was was sure to let fans know that she didn’t get braces in the traditional sense. In response to a fan who thought her braces were “cute,” the Redbook cover girl for June said: “Thanks baby but I don’t have braces :)”
The slimmed-down fashionista visited Sands’ office last week — with cameras rolling for the upcoming season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashian” — to start the molds for the process.
Her doctor, who also treats her older sister Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Kanye West, confirmed the news to Radar this week (and apparently has never heard of HIPAA), saying that she was getting a customized Invisalign set, not the metal braces we’ve all come to know and loathe.
“She happens to have one of the most beautiful smiles I’ve ever seen,” Sands told the website, saying that he and his patient were “perfectionists” and that they were making minor adjustments to correct her “slightly crooked and rotated” teeth.
“So it was just something we knew we could do. We’ll take her from a 9.5 to a 12!” he said. She’ll wear the set for just a few months, he added.
“Invisalign is just so easy and noninvasive that it’s worth doing. When Khloe walked in last week I was like, ‘Wow!’ She looks better than ever. We fixed some fillings and took the molds for the Invisalign.”
Well, any guesses as to who the next spokesperson for the brand might be?
