The news broke yesterday and frankly, we just can’t see an end to the profound significance of this particular story. Niall Horan, of One Direction made a very important personal announcement via Twitter yesterday; one that will give hope to his young fans across the globe. In his Tweet, he wrote “Morning! This is it,” in a suitably dramatic fashion. Not wanting to keep people waiting any longer on the important news, he added “I’m goin to the dentist! I think this is my last hour with braces! Oh how I’m gona miss them ! Naaaaaaat !”

The world over, One Direction fans wept with delight at the news and many were given hope that they too could one day have perfectly straight, eerily white teeth, just like young Master Horan. Niall then posted a before and after shot of his gnashers, highlighting just what a terrible life he could have had, if one of his front teeth had been allowed to grow slightly in front of the other one, which, as we all know is just W.R.O.N.G. Niall had his teeth wired up back in 2011, once had realised the horrifying fate that would await him if he did not fix his toothy-pegs and he opted for the more subtle clear style, rather than the metal ones.

It looks very much as though he may have had those teeth whitened somewhere along the way, as well, as he’s looking a lot more gleaming in the after shot than the before picture. It’s going to be a long while before we can see the full cultural impact of this teeth straightening bombshell… watch this space.
