I am 29 and I am about to get braces. I need to decide between invisalign and traditional braces. I know invisalign is less noticeable, but my orthodontist says the other braces will be faster and cheaper. And in the end my teeth would look better.
My question for the girls is, do you think braces on an adult man look unattractive or goofy? The main reason I am getting braces to look more attractive, so I'm not sure if it's worth it. I will need to wear them for 18 months.

That's not too bad. I was recently told I'd need braces (again, the first time the dentist f***ed up) and another pallet expander (this time once, again, it will be inserted properly) as well as head gear because it's harder to move sh*t this time around. All of which I laughed at and walked away from. Unless you're looking down at my lower row of teeth everything looks pretty fine, minus some discolorations, which I am taking care of.
I guess my point is it's about you. And if you can go 18 months with braces and still be confident and it won't be a blow to your ego then go do it. I know, for me, while it's not a turn off I'd still poke fun at it occasionally because it is a little goofy for adults to have braces. So think about if you really want them and how bad your teeth really are and if girls care right now what your teeth look like. Because if they don't, why waste the money and the insurance money and get something that you don't need. As long as you don't care about it yourself either.
So no, I wouldn't not date you because of them, but it can make some things awkward and, being completely honest, if I did date you I'd poke fun at them a little bit, because you would look a little silly. But that's about it.0
