·2-min read

It has become a trend for MAFS stars to get their teeth done after appearing on the show, with Jackson Lonie debuting his initial transformation in May.

The star has just revealed that his complete transformation took much longer than fans realised, and spilled that the dental work cost ‘north of $10,000’.

Jackson explained on 2Day FM’s Hughesy, Ed and Erin show that his top row veneers took around five weeks to finish, but Invisalign for the bottom row took approximately 28 weeks to complete.

“Getting veneers I’ve just had so much more confidence, like [my] shoulders are back a lot more and I’ve got a bit of swagger in my step,” he announced.

Radio host Erin Nolan pointed out the trend of reality TV stars getting their teeth fixed after gaining popularity, and asked him to share how much it cost.

The MAFS star said it wasn’t the ‘cheapest’ because he had ‘quite a fair bit done’, telling the hosts that it was in the ‘high thousands’.

“$10,000, is that fair to say?” Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes asked.

“It’s north of that,” Jackson replied, before adding: “It’s an expensive smile”.

He told the hosts that the veneers were done well and shouldn't be able to fall off by themselves.

"I've chewed gobstoppers and they haven't come out," he bragged.
