Stray Kids’ I.N Goes Viral For Not Following Controversial K-Pop Beauty Trend

What do you think about veneers?

Cosmetic teeth procedures in K-Pop idols have become a hot topic, as more appear to have allegedly gotten dental veneers recently.

Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are attached to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. They can be used to treat cosmetic concerns like chipped, broken, discolored, or smaller-than-average teeth.

Dental veneers are often made from porcelain or resin-composite materials and are permanently bonded to your teeth.

Some people may only get one veneer in the case of a broken or chipped tooth, but many get between six to eight veneers in order to create an even, symmetrical smile.

The top front eight teeth are the most commonly applied veneers.

Dental veneers, a white covering bonded to one’s teeth, have long been popular in Hollywood. It gives the appearance of “perfect” teeth but can result in almost an “uncanny valley” appearance, as it doesn’t always look natural.


Why don’t these celebrities go to someone who can actually give them the smile they deserve? Now before people start getting offended… I’m not saying that it’s her fault that her veneers don’t look natural, I’m saying that someone like Selena deserves and can definitely afford to have a cosmetic dentist that can give her what she’s looking for🤩🙌🏼 Which celebrity should I do next? #selenagomez #selena #veneers

For example, the newly debuted girl group ILLIT‘s teeth look different from before to many. Netizens allege that it appears members have received veneers, while some argued it was the result of teeth whitening and/or other procedures.

Yet, one idol is garnering attention for wearing braces instead of veneers.

An old photo of Stray KidsI.N went viral in Japan recently, with 2.7M views at the time of writing. OP (Original Poster) pointed out that celebrities often resort to dental veneers to quickly “fix” their smile, while I.N proudly wore braces to straighten his teeth. He also looked extra adorable while doing so!

I.N had his braces for over two years before having them removed on January 17, 2019. While most are excited about getting one’s braces removed, I.N had come to like them, considering them his charming point. He was all smiles after removing them, though!
