Will it affect how they judge the rest of my appearance?
And, yes, I get that they will eventually be taken off, and It'll be worth it in the end. But I'd like to know the impression I'm making on the boys when it comes to my smile! So this question is aimed towards the guys, but girls feel free to give in your 2 cents.
When I was in high school, braces didn't make a difference since so many people have them at that age. I had to get them again back in February (I just got them off a couple weeks ago), and guys didn't treat me any differently, it was more like a "Do whatever you have to do" type of thing. They were meant to fix a problem, and then they were gone--not a big deal.
