Country superstar Carrie Underwood recently revealed that she had braces for months about seven years ago without anyone actually knowing about them.
Underwood spoke with Women’s Health recently in a segment they call “Body Scan.” The country singer, like so many others in grade school, opened up about having braces as a teenager. She laughed when talking about her experience with braces during her teen years. Underwood also admitted that she didn’t wear her retainer regularly, therefore her teeth started to shift as years passed.
By the time she chose to fix her teeth again, Carrie Underwood was already famous and perpetually in the spotlight. Yet according to the country singer, no one knew that she had braces on her bottom teeth. She was able to keep it secret for three months – even on the red carpet.
“I went to an orthodontist and I was like, alright, we’ve gotta make this quick. It’s such a little thing, but it’s only going to get worse, so let’s fix it now. And he did, in like three months,” Carrie Underwood explained to Women’s Health.
“So there was a period of my life that nobody knew I had braces on the bottom for like three months. And I was doing red carpets and stuff like that just trying not to smile too big,” she recalled with a laugh. “It was probably like seven years ago, but nobody knew it!”
