Straight Up




Next procedure, chin waddle.


My kids all have beautifully straight teeth, so now it's my turn. I did the whole braces for two years, followed by retainer for two years. Of course now they know you have to wear your retainer til the end of time. I have HUGE, horsey teeth. Like when I have a charicature drawn they always give me huge, bucky, bubba teeth. They are a main feature of my face, so when they started getting crooked, it wasn't pretty. I figure I have a window of time before I turn 50 or become a Grandma. So if you notice me talking funny, thath why!

You are just getting younger. Invisaline is a big part of our teenager's life. Did you know that long teeth make you look younger? It's true!

"when I have a charicature drawn they always give me huge, bucky, bubba teeth" - How many charicatures have you had done? Please post pictures of them!!!

I would LOVE to have invisaline! I never did the whole braces thing and I need it.

Mt friend has those it just looks like she has gloss on her teeth all the time. Yeah for you. The whole retainer thing wearing them tell the end of time I wish that they told us that cause kine have totally moved as well I really didnt think you had to wear it forever literally. Cant wait to see the finished product...

I have big, huge horsey teeth, too. In fact, some of the BPA girls commented, "Wow, you have really big teeth." Kind of feel like the wolf in Little Red Riding Hood. My, what big teeth you have...

tawnya said...

Hmmmm. I have never noticed your teeth!

I did the whole braces thing, and when they came off, my orthodontist looked at my teeth and said, "Hmmm... Those 2 teeth next to your front teeth are really little. If I'd realized that 2 years ago, I'd have done this totally differently." Thanks. Now that I've lived with my tiny teeth for 10+ years, I'm realizing I'll either have to to braces again, or hit my brother up for some good cosmetic dentistry.

Just dropped by your site and thought I'd leave a comment...hope you don't mind.

You have great teeth and they already look straight! At first I thought this was a teeth whitening kit but then read on. My top teeth are fine but the bottom could maybe use a little straightening...I may have to look into this invisaline stuff.

(Looks like we may have kids around the same age...fun to meet another blogger in the over 40 category...cuz last time I checked...I'm over 40! HA!)

SWEET!

Are you kidding? You have great teeth! But yeah, I hate those cartoon drawings-you finally know what others see about you. I'd have a giant forehead. Love shoesday by the way...RRrrrr!

Ah, be glad you can DO invisalign. My husband needs jaw surgery and good ol' fashioned braces to get his bite back in line.

I'm still upset with his parents for getting his sister braces when he clearly had bigger issues.

I never thought you had horsey teeth. I just kept thinking how cute you were!

Annie said...

I think there's no deadline. My mom (whose oldest grandchild is almost 15!) just finished braces. She looked so cute with them and now her straight teeth make her feel beautiful.

p.s. you're going to start conditioning me to go shoe shopping every Tuesday. Seriously.

I don't even qualify for invisaline. Invisaline is for people with teeny tiny problems. I have MAJOR issues with my teeth, but I'm slowly getting passed them. I'll probably finally accept them when my husband decides to buy me braces.

Diane - I have never noticed any teeth issue with you. You're so crazy, but I am sure you will look even more beautiful than you do now when you're done with them.

AnnEE said...

You are darling. No more getting cuter. You're making the rest of us look bad!

Hazen5 said...

You have to tell me all about! I think I am going to try it. Does it really work?

I am so jealous - something bugs you, you get it fixed! I need some serious wrinkle assistance already, so in 10 years I'm going to be in huge trouble. I love that you have had numerous charicatures..
