MAFS’ Matt Ridley wows with major transformation: ‘Unreal’

Married At First Sight star Matt Ridley has left his social media followers stunned this week after he unveiled his dramatic transformation online.

The 39-year-old law clerk, who was ‘married’ to Kate Laidlaw on the show, is the latest reality TV star to get his teeth done and took to Instagram on Tuesday to share photos of his brand new look.

“Words cannot describe how amazed I am with this smile transformation,” he wrote alongside a gallery of snaps.

“I now have the most amazing smile and my confidence is through the roof. I hadn’t seen a dentist in 23 years and now this. I’m so thankful to all the team.”


Matt’s followers quickly rushed to the comments to applaud his transformation, which is believed to be worth around $55,000.

“Looks amazing,” Selin Mengu wrote, followed by Jackson Lonie who said, “Look unreal mate”.

“Wow! Big difference!” another added, while someone else remarked, “You look so much younger Matt, looks very good!”.

“Completely changes your face, it's amazing, isn't it? The confidence,” a different user shared.

'A drastic change'

Matt’s new look comes shortly after his co-star Selin Mengu debuted her own dental makeover at Australian Fashion Week earlier this month.

“I love the new teeth,” she told Yahoo Lifestyle at the event.

“I never ever thought about getting veneers. There’s a myth about veneers where you have to shave down all your teeth, which is not true. Just hearing that made me more confident.

“When I first got them done I thought they were too big and too white and all of these things. It’s obviously still a drastic change, but I love them. I'm so impressed with them and everyone loves them and thinks they’re real so I’m happy with them.”

Meanwhile, fellow season nine star Brent Vitiello recently shared on social media that he was planning on getting his teeth fixed with Invisalign rather than porcelain veneers.

“We're not doing veneers!” he wrote on Instagram. “Just straightening and fixing what God gave me.”
