before and after braces.

One Direction's Niall Horan was delighted to announce that he's had his braces taken off. And low-and-behold what a difference a little orthodontic work has done.

The Mullingar lad seems to have been really looking forward to being braces free and posted this "before and after" photo, showing what a big difference they had made.

In February Horan tweeted "Goodmorning lovers! just t let ya know ..as i always get asked…the braces are coming off 3rd of april forever!"

Then on Wednesday he tweeted "Morning. ! This is it ! I'm goin to the dentist! I think this is my last hour with braces! Oh how I'm gona miss them ! Naaaaaaat!”

Horan who recently attended his brother's wedding back home in County Athlone had his braces fitted in December 2011 and he is not a fan.

Just after he had the mouthpiece fitted he told the Sun "I've just had a brace on this week so I won't be eating sweets.

"It's a bit sore so I can only eat soup.”

So we're guessing it'll more cheesy grins from this cheeky chap...and some yummy chewy candies.
