Saira Khan, a TV presenter for the shows Loose Women and Martin Lewis’ Money Show, has decided to take the plunge and have corrective treatment for her protruding front teeth. In an interview published on Dentistry.co.uk, Khan opened up about how self-conscious she is about her smile and how she has finally decided to do something about it.
For celebrities, having a great smile is practically a job requirement. When she first began her TV career, Saira Khan was a finalist in the very first series of The Apprentice show. Now her career trajectory has changed, and she has become a presenter for a couple of different shows in the United Kingdom. Along with those responsibilities comes additional pressure.
The Self-Conscious Smile
In her interview with Dentistry.co.uk, Khan confessed to feeling nervous and self-conscious when she smiles. In many cases, she smiled without revealing her teeth, because she was afraid to show their lack of perfections. “I love smiling and laughing, but have found that in photographs I don’t smile as much and tend to keep my mouth closed and cover up my teeth,” she said.
Modern Solutions with Cosmetic Dentistry
Finally, Saira Khan decided to take action to resolve the source of her self-consciousness. “I like to think that I am a confident woman,” she said. “But for me, confidence comes from being the best that I can be and that includes looking my best and feeling good about myself.”
Her decision to undergo a smile makeover is possible because of Invisalign. The clear aligner technology allows Khan to slowly achieve straighter teeth while still continuing in her professional roles. Since the aligners are practically invisible, Khan can still do her job as a presenter, without showing a mouth full of braces to her viewers. The idea of using Invisalign made her “delighted and very excited,” according to the interview. “I have always wanted my teeth straightened and now I feel there is a non-intrusive method that can improve my teeth whilst I still get on with my life being a mum, TV presenter and businesswoman.”
An Ageless Opportunity
Saira Khan is 45, yet she doesn’t think she is too old to correct her smile. Many other adults share her view; in fact, there is a growing trend of adults deciding to pursue Invisalign and cosmetic dentistry. Gone are the days when metal brackets and wires were the only option. Now adults can gain straighter teeth without any noticeable effects or negative attention from others.
Khan’s treatment will take about 18 months. She has a positive, enthusiastic attitude about the plan and its results. “I am finally going to get my teeth straightened and gain the confidence to smile without feeling self-conscious or nervous!” she said.
