Coi Leray Celebrates Getting Her Braces Off
Coi has just revealed her braces are finally off! She revealed a fresh set of sparkling white teeth on her Instagram just under a month ago and has been flashing them ever since!

Coi Leray Teeth Now – After Braces
Why Did Coi Leray Get Braces?
Coi’s top row of teeth was always pulled forward because she had a bad habit of sucking her thumb! As a result, even though she’d had two sets of braces before she opted to get another set using her own money and fix the problem once and for all.
Otherwise, her teeth are in great condition. Now with them off she’s clearly had a quick whitening and she can proudly show off a great smile.
Did Coi Leray Have Gold Braces?
Coi Leray’s braces are actually gold! Well, the braces are actually made of stainless steel but coated in 24-karat Gold for the look. The effect is pretty awesome and it looks like a half-decent grill. She’s had both top and bottom braces the entire time with a power chain on the top row for most.
How Many Times Has Coi Leray Had Braces?
You might not have known, but Coi Leray has had braces three times now! She’s open about why she’s needed braces so many times and what she needed them for in the first place. When she was a young kid she had braces like many to fix some alignment issues.
The first time she had braces she was still sucking her thumb, which causes an overbite. By pulling the front teeth forward the front upper and lower teeth don’t close together and the teeth stick forward. She says on her first set of braces the dentists got tired and figured she wouldn’t stop, even after warning her it was problem, and just took them off.
Later she got a second set of braces but didn’t stop sucking her thumb and found it was just taking too long for her…
Coi Leray Took Off Her Own Braces!
We really don’t recommend this but on her second set she just pulled them off herself. Coi got tired of dealing with broken brackets and missing appointments (apparently due to her parents) and pulled them off with her hands covered in a vest.
We really shouldn’t have to say but this is dangerous. You can damage teeth or even lose them if you do this! If brackets are breaking off, the braces will take longer to work. It’s important that if a bracket breaks you call your dentist and make an appointment to get them put back on ASAP.
If you just can’t deal, speak with your ortho and get them taken off, or at least have a chat about what you can both do first.
