Brace Yourself

Before... After
I got my braces off. Can I get a woo-hoo!
After 12 months of Invisalign and 12 weeks of braces, my pearly whites are straight.
Oh happy day. If you are on the fence about adult orthodontia, you should go for it. It is worth the time, effort and expense. Now, please excuse me while I go eat some corn on the cob, popcorn and carmels.

Be-ut-iful!! I fear I may one day have to wear braces again...i'm not doing so well with wearing my retainers:)

You look goo-ood and even younger in the after shot than before you had the braces. If getting braces shaves years off, people will be lining up in droves.

I didn't even realize you had braces, so I don't know the difference. But you do look stunning. I love your idea of the traveling shoes, btw.

Thanks for the comment about Gift from the Sea. I haven't thought of it for years, but I read it when I had a lengthy post-partum depression and it was a true blessing at the time. Good suggestion for my Real Book list.

Diane, I have Invisalign right now and this it's great. PLEASE tell me I won't have to have braces too? I'm way too vain and Invisalign is so easy. also, my brother in law the dentist did them for me so very reasonable cost. He'll do them for anyone for cheap if anyone wants them.

I completely agree that adult braces are worth it. If your teeth bother you, fix them! People notice teeth, it matters more than your hair and you have to wear/use them everyday! Plus you have them for the rest of your life. I should post about this.

Congrats! You look beautiful!

Whoot whoot!
I didn't even know you were getting them off and was sending a naughty (not braces friendly) treat your way. Now you can enjoy it even more!!!

You look so great there! Nice progress! I also know someone who had her teeth corrected by Invisalign. Las Vegas was where she went often with her husband, so she took advantage of one of their trips and went to see a dentist (Las Vegas, Nevada area). When she came back to our neighborhood, I barely noticed them. It was invisible indeed! Oh, if only you could see how pretty she is now with a perfect smile. It's just inspiring.
