The beauty of Kate's smile is in its imperfections, says top dentist Dr. Rhona Eskander of The Chelsea Dental Clinic. Rather than a flawless Hollywood smile like her sister-in-law Meghan Markle has, Prince William's wife's teeth aren't perfectly aligned and that's what makes her smile so pretty.

1. Braces

According to Dr. Rhona, Dr. Didier Fillion created Kate's smile with braces that go behind the teeth. "This creates tiny little micro rotations in the smile, which means the teeth aren't perfectly aligned," explains Dr. Rhona. "Kate's lateral incisors, which are next to her central incisors, are slightly rotated towards the middle. This creates a more natural smile."

Dr. Rhona explains that Kate has full buccal corridors, which means she shows eight to ten teeth on smiling, which gives a fuller, wider smile, which is deemed more attractive. Ful buccal corridors can also be achieved with braces.

2. Teeth whitening

"It's also likely Kate has had teeth whitening, but no bonding or veneers because we can see the shapes are a little irregular, creating a perfectly imperfect balanced smile," shares Dr Rhona.
