Speaking to Daily Mail Australia on Monday, Matt said he couldn’t be happier with the results after having his teeth fixed at Vogue Dental Studios in Melbourne.
‘I would be lying to you if I said I wasn’t scared. I had not been to a dentist in 23 years. I had not got any fillings. I had not gone to get any teeth whitening,’ he said.
‘The last time I was at a dentist I was 16 years of age and the noise and the smell and just the experience really took me back.’

Matt continued: ‘I think I’ve always had a good smile, but there has been times when I’ve lacked confidence because of the colour of my teeth.
‘I did have a few chips and marks, and when you have that, and when you have some discoloration of your natural teeth, you really need to look at doing something.’
Dentist-to-the-stars Dr Deepan Duraisamy, a.k.a. Dr Dee, said Matt ‘had a good smile but wanted a brighter, more perfect smile keeping his original teeth shapes’.
