If you have me on Facebook or know me on a personal level you may already know this wonderful part of my life, but if not let me tell you. When I was 13 I got braces which are pretty normal for teenagers who have bad teeth which need sorting out, when I was 17 I got them taken out (not so normal) which meant for FOUR years and 9 months… yeah I counted… I had braces. Which of course led to bullying and other rubbish which is totally silly because I wanted straight teeth?! The most original I got was ‘brace face’ those crazy kids. But I’ve got to admit despite the bullying I got for having them, it was totally 110% worth it, my teeth were a mess and even now I’ll forever be smiling to show off my smile and it’s been three years since they were taken off. Braces are a lot easier to be accessed now than what they were years ago, it’s a lot more common for people to have braces (probably for a year or two) not four like myself.
But as they were less accessible around 30 years ago or so, people are now getting them as adults, which I myself think is pretty awesome. I would rather spend the money on my teeth rather than my lips or nose but that’s personal to me. I think the amazing thing is you can have clear braces which don’t even notice which great for those adults who are self-conscious about their image. Although I think a mouth full of metal isn’t as bad as it seems as you can get pretty colours but I totally understand why a lot of adults choose to go down the clear route.
