I tend to agree with this. All of my British friends have had work done on their teeth AFTER they have relocated to the States. They say that serious dental work in Britain is more costly than here, where alot of insurance companies will cover it (except braces, which is considered cosmetic). I've also met alot of Brits who have terrible teeth, and yet these are educated people with good jobs, good hygeine and otherwise regular lives. So maybe it's just not a priority over there. I remember reading an interview about Elvis where he was talking about having met the Beatles (at the height of their fame) and how he was appalled by their teeth. He said for guys who had as much money as they did, he didn't understand how they could not get their teeth "done."

Didn't Pierre Casiraghi have braces? For some reason I remember seeing a picture of him with braces (but I could be wrong).
I know, as an option a while ago, you had the choice to put your braces on the back side of your teeth. I don't know if they still offer that, so maybe many royals had braces & we never knew

Most braces allow you to get elastic bands with lots of different colours. Speed braces usually have a "power" band that goes on the top and bottom, so, I guess you could have 2 colours every month. My friend had a different type of braces where the individual brackets each had a different band, and thus, potentially, a different colour.

Lady Sarah Chatto, Viscount Linley, Princess Elizabeth (Queen Margrethe's first cousin), and Princess Ragnild of Norway all needed braces and never got them. I am not trying to sound cruel...but check out their overbites. It is so noticeable on all of them, you cannot help but stare. Even Princess Anne could have used them.

Royals and Dentistry

I don't mean to be rude, but I keep seeing pictures of some royals that would greatly benefit from dental whitening (Queen Sofia, Queen Margrethe).

They are most of the time in front of the public eye and a healthy smile is part of an overall good presence.

I just wonder what you all think about this subject.

I think Queen Sofia did have her teeth whitened in the past as they don't seem as 'yellow' as they did...
I'm sure Queen Margrethe's teeth are like that because of smoking. Though some people are not blessed with good teeth in general

Oh you have touched my heart as this is my proffesion, in the dental field.
The Queens mother Elizabeth had very unasthetic teeth, even as a young Duchess of York, she never fully smiled and I noticed her teeth were not so nicely coloured and shaped. I find it amazing, as there is so many dental options today with lazer and implants and surgeries why would anyone with the income of a monarch or prince not fix their teeth!

A white smile is not necessarily a "healthy" smile. More likely, there was some damage done to get that unnatural whitening. Whitening is also a young person's aesthetic, or that of those that want to look younger. It may not be part of the value system of an older person. It seems that the younger members of the royal families are partaking, but the older group isn't. But at this point, what do they have to prove?

I think Margrethe should really think about going to the dentist. Her teeth are extremely yellow (who wonderes.. as much as she's smoking).
Oh, and she should take Harald with her (he stopped smoking). His teeth are very yellow ,too.

I'm sorry, but there is a difference between natrual looking teeth, with an ivory look (Vs flahing white teeth) than broken discoloured teeth, with different coloured crowns!

Besides smoking (and excessive coffee/wine drinking which can also discolor teeth) there was a medication used as recently as the 1960s to treat asthma, esp. in children. I know 'cuz my ex husband was given this for his asthma problems. I forget the name, I want to say it's tritroglycerin (sp?) but it badly discolors the teeth and bones. My ex was incredibly diligent in cleaning his teeth/mouth and went frequently to the dentist, however, little could be done about the discoloring until recently when they began to use lasers to "wash" away the stains on the enamel. It's a very costly procedure (though I'm sure these royals could well afford the treatment) and it takes considerable time. My ex lucked out 'cuz he went to a teaching school where dental students were learning how to use the procedure so he got it done relatively for free. Perhaps some of the discoloring of these older royals teeth might also have to do with medications they were given.

The Lady Sarah Chatto, David Linley, Princess Raghnild of Norway, Princess Elizabeth of Denmark, Queen Margrethe's first cousin, they all are in DESPARATE NEED of braces.

I know it is very American to go to the dentist regularly and have braces...but these royals....NASTY TEETH!!

Even Princess Anne with her overbite could have benefited from braces.

Thank goodness Anne and Diana had the sense to get Zara and William braces for their teeth.

I agree about Queen Margrethe as well. She needs to have those teeth taken care of.

Prince Willem-Alexander

The royal in the Netherlands with -by far- the worst teeth is Prince Willem-Alexander, the Prince of Orange.

But so now and then you can see his teeth are fixed again, so that he can smile that wonderful smile of him again. His bad teeth are very connected with his weight. He suffers an immune deficiency syndrome (Besnier-Boeck syndrome) which periodically requires heavy medication (prednison) making him really looking blown up and which affects his teeth.

In 'good periods' he slims down a bit again and then you see that he had visited the orthodondist again.

This is a really good photo where you can clearly see Queen Margrethe's teeth.

Again, I don't mean to be rude, but they look pretty awful. Queen Margrethe looks like such a nice person, always happy with a smile on her face but these teeth seem to say "I don't care about my image or health" (just my opinion).

I noticed that Camilla Parker-Bowles teeth were extremely yellow prior to her wedding to Prince Charles. It appears that she had them whitened prior to their engagement. Of course, it is still obvious that they are still crooked.

Oh, TERRIBLE teeth! I know we Americans are probably too fixated on good teeth, but for me it just makes such a difference on the overall impression a person makes. Bad teeth are just icky. I had a boyfriend with really bad teeth (and accompanying bad breath) and it really, really got to me after a while--it's one of the reasons (though not a major one) that he's now an ex!

I was always amazed by the fact that Pss. Margaret never had her children's teeth (and jawline which can be affected by severe overbite) corrected. She was always so glamourous and stylish, very aware of physical appearance. Lord Snowden, too. Being a photographer, surely he was sensitive to appearance issues. And in the late 60s/early 70s it was becoming more and more commonplace for children/young adults to have their teeth "fixed". Yet another royal mystery.
