EXCLUSIVE: Love Islands Dale Mehmet says he got Botox and teeth done for career
Dale Mehmet has revealed he's had a few procedures to get the "perfect smile" and prevent wrinkles in the future.
The 25 year old, who found fame on the hit ITV dating show Love Island this year, opened up on the small ways he altered his appearance during an exclusive chat with OK! Online.
TV personality Dale explained he travelled to Turkey, where his father is from, to get his teeth done, which he believes was the right step as he pursues a career in modelling and fashion.
"I was in Turkey a year ago, I got my teeth done. I went over there to get that done," he said.
When asked what prompted him to make that decision, he shared: "Before I had my teeth done, my teeth were fine. Perfect smile innit?"
Insisting that he was never unhappy with his teeth before the procedure, he continued: "It was something I always wanted to do and not because I was insecure about my teeth or anything like that.
"I feel like you need to have your teeth done to know what I mean by that. It changes your face so much.
"For the career I wanted to pursue, it looks good – the perfect smile."
Dale, who was dumped from the Love Island villa alongside pal Abigail Rawlings, told OK! that he's also had Botox in an attempt to get ahead of wrinkles before they even appear.
He said: "I went to aesthetic clinics and had some facial stuff done but nothing like major cosmetic that I would change about myself as much. I got some Botox.
"Stop these wrinkles coming on quick, get it done when I'm younger and stop it from being there when I'm older."
It comes after Dale recently dismissed any AJ Bunker romance rumours after they were pictured looking cosy at Liberty Poole's birthday bash and insisted that he is just a "friendly person".

The Scottish barber also revealed that he wants to stay "single for a bit" after an "eventful summer" in the ITV2 villa and plans to "focus" on himself.
Dale and AJ recently ignited romance rumours after she planted a kiss on his cheek during Liberty's epic celebration for her 22nd birthday.
Asked how he feels about fans wanting him to couple up with AJ, he exclusively told OK! that you "create a relationship with everybody" in the ITV2 villa, but this doesn't mean it's "romantic".

Dale said: "When you're in Love Island, you create a relationship with everybody. It's not always a romantic relationship, you are creating relationships and friendships in there. Me, personally, I'm just like a big cuddly bear. I cuddle everybody, I'll give everybody a kiss on the cheek.
"That's just me, it's how I've been brought up. Do you know what I mean? If somebody said to me, 'Oh, give us a kiss on the cheek'… oh, that looks like it could be a thing, but it's not always like that. It's just my personality."
