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.
Bella your so right about the medication discoloring the teeth, my little girl who's on medication daily has that problem, someone suggest that i use bakingsoda and that did the trick for a while but it's getting really bad again. Does anyone know of any safe solutions i could use at home for her.

Photo from Polfoto.
I agree, this does not look good or healthy. I just recently went to the dentist and saw a chart of tooth decay. Queen Margarethe's teeth on the side where you can see the black part between the tooth and gums looks very much like decay, it may be from smoking it just negelct but she should probably have it taken care of.

I agree though, if one if a public figure they should try to look their best. You know, put your best foot forward. Idt20, you're absolutely right IMO, it looks like she doesn't care about her image or health. Although, she's done a great job as Queen, the teeth are really bad and should be changed.

I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if this rumour I heard was true about the Queen Mother. I heard once that the Queen Mother never brushed her teeth, is that true? I cringed when I heard this because I could never imagine going on without brushing my teeth. Ewww. Does anyone know if this rumour is true? Thanks

Sorry to hear about your daughter's issue, Jordana2. What does her dentist say? I don't know how good the home remedies work. I remember my ex tried everything for years to get his teeth whiter and nothing worked until he went to the specialists. At least w your daughter she has more options available to her. Have you tried looking more info. up on the internet? Or actually, maybe even going to a health store, like GNC. Good Luck.

HRH Amy, I heard that too about the Queen Mother. I can't imagine anyone going through a day w/out brushing their teeth, let alone their entire life. But she did have pretty funky teeth so you never know. I heard she liked to have a nip every now and then (I think of brandy) and that she was very fond of sugary treats, two things that would have ruined her teeth if she wasn't keeping up on their care. If it's true she didn't brush her teeth, you'd think they'd have rotted clear out of her head.

I'm the one that said a white smile is not necessarily a healthy smile. But after seeing that picture of Queen Margarethe, I'm coming over to your side.

I wouldn't say all is lost with royals and bad teeth though, look at Princess Diana, her's were relatively straight and pretty white. http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...7&d=1107809157

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...8&d=1108130551

Sarah, Duchess of York also had straight teeth although her's could've been whiter. Maxima has straight teeth but because of the smoking they have turned yellow, but they could polish up with whitening.

I agree with HRHAmy. There are many, many royals who have straight and white teeth (and thus very beautiful smile). For example Swedish Princess Madeleine, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Carl Philip. There is nothing wrong with their teeth. However, there are indeed very bad examples too (e.g Queen Margarethe).

Thanks Bella she hasn't seen a dentist yet, she just turn two but the dentist that the family usually sees recommends age three, because at that age their more likely to sit still and not be so terrified. but i'll check the internet like you said.


Wow Queen Margarethe's teeth are in really bad shape.
And so many of the younger royals too, so many of them really needs their teeth whitened. I mean it's not like they can't afford it.

The Princess of Asturias had a bad tooth, in fact a part of her gum, that she had mad repar very well and her smile which was yet estupendous is now more fanatastic.

For everybody, Royal or no,to have good teeth is a question of health, yes; but also esthetic. Today it's easy to repar the desordre of a mouth even when you didn't do when you were little.

A lot of us know adults with dental jackets ! Why not the Royals who need it

The old school royals (Queen Sofia, Queen Margrethe, etc) tend to have really bad teeth while the CPs/ss and Princes/ss have good teeth maybe because they had access to dental care their parents didn't...

I don't know with whitened. I'd rather not have the royals glare out at the world with Hollywood white teeth, so that it looks fake and unnatural. Regular teeth, not fake white or smoker's yellow.

The Armstrong Jones did have braces, but unfortunately British Dentistry puts the proffesion to shame, unless you are private of course, or better a Harley St doctor. The older Princess of York (Beatrice I think) straitened her crooked teeth, but could do with surgery to correct her bite, she has what is nicknamed "A long Face" in dental terms. In General the Windsors do have a canine look inherited all the way down from ... Queen Mary. A shame they don't do anything to properly fix the goofy or horsey look.

I think it's great that they wear braces instead of just taking the easy route and having caps placed over the teeth. It makes them seem more human. Prince Pavlos and Marie-Chantal of Greece's daughter looks like she needs braces. She's still young, but I'm sure that they will do something for her in the next few years.

Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece and Denmark wore braces, if you look closely in this picture, from Celbrity Kidz and scanned by Lucidu.

One of her brothers, I'm pretty sure its the oldest, either Constantine or Achilleas, I always get them confused, looks as if he has braces in this picture, from the same source as above.

I didn't realise Prince William had had braces too. Most of the Windsor's had braces then. Prince Edward did, but this brothers and sister didn't...why was that? Does anyone have a photo of Edward in said braces? I sincerely hope he and Sophie get Louise braces once all her adult teeth come in as she has inherited pretty much every feature of her fathers, including his gapped teeth.

Since a lot of royals go through other procedures to improve their looks or their bodies, it's surprising that some of them don't do the same with their teeth. It's much easier to cap you're teeth than put braces on them. When I was a child I had almost three rows of teeth. I can't tell you how many teeth were pulled because I had too many.When I got the braces, 4 teeth (2 on each upper side had to be pulled). I got to the point where I was used to going to the dentist and never was scared of it like other people. Now the way braces are made you don't really see them as much. Very different story in the 1970's.

Last year I had a wisdom tooth pulled and had 2 fillings done.

My brothers are both younger than me (20 and 17) and they have both had their wisdom teeth out. I'm 23 and mine are still deep under the gums and show no sign of erupting yet. I have had two X-rays in the last 5 years and was told that it could still be a while; I was 8 by the time I lost my first tooth (funny story about that; I would lose one, and my then 5-year-old brother would lose one!)
