Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s Kendall Jenner does much more than star on her family’s reality show. At just 17, she also has fashion and jewelry lines, a new sci-fi book coming out and she’s a model. But the reality star is also (kind of) a regular teenager with regular teenager problems, like crooked teeth that need braces. And that’s exactly what Kendall got on Tuesday, when she stepped out in Beverly Hills to get fitted for her new mouthpiece.
There were some concerns about how a mouth full of metal might affect Kendall’s modeling career, but luckily the teen’s orthodontist decided that she was a perfect candidate for Invisalign. With these non-metallic braces, you can take them on and off, and when they are on, they’re virtually invisible. Whew! For a minute there, I thought Kendall might be dealing with some REAL first world problems.
To be fair, Kendall Jenner does have a lot going on in her life, namely in the form of family drama. Her mom and dad, Kris and Bruce Jenner, just announced that they were separating after 22 years of marriage. Even though this didn’t come as much of a surprise, especially to fans of Keeping Up With the Kardashians who knew from the show that the couple had been living apart for months, the teen has still had to cope with the change in her family dynamic. Then there’s the small issue of big sister Khloe’s marriage troubles with NBA player Lamar Odom, who’s been smoking crack and causing even more discord in the family. And let’s not forget all the drama that comes with having Kanye West even remotely connected to you.
At least with her invisible braces, Kendall doesn’t have to worry about her modeling career going south because of a metallic smile. Plus, she can have all the popcorn and bubble gum she wants without having to spend hours picking the remnants out of her teeth – a torturous activity that any braces-wearer can attest to.
Well, what do you think about Kendall Jenner’s new mouthpiece? Tell us in the comments!
