And then, there are things that just cannot be ‘naturally’ fixed. So, plastic surgery is. Many people are willing to let people cut their face just to gain a perfect facial feature.

Technavio suggested that the enamel whitening market will grow by 4% in 2021. Others suggest using tooth polish which is considered harmless and often suggested by dentists. Many are also trying to get their teeth straightened through braces. This trend is sweeping the whole world, prompting even women who don’t have issues with their teeth, nutrition absorption or eating habit.

Yes, braces do wonder to one’s facial appearance, like how Tom Cruise changed. But he had more than just face issue – horribly unaligned teeth can be very hard to clean and may cause bacteria and plague to pile up in between holes and cavities to form.

Meanwhile, Katy Perry doesn’t see the need to fix them and she won’t ever.
