Hey, SO I'll be 21 in may! Just found out I need braces and glasses... normally I'm very confident. In my opinion, I feel kind of old getting braces...(I need them for minor things and my jaw apparently; if you look at my picture.. I'm not weird looking aha) anyways, I just wanna hear your opinions. PLEASE be honest..
If you're on here to start, crap, Save it for someone who cares. you're wasting your time...

I was a month shy of turning 25 when I got mine on this past year. Something like 25% of the "braces population" are adults. I was concerned at first with how I'd look with braces on. But I found that after a short bit, they actually made me MORE confident even with my same smile as before.
I'm not sure what it is, I guess having braces and showing them is a sign that your smile is being fixed (or that you're rich lol). My smile has moved quite a bit since September when I got them in, especially the bottom row. And there's something about all the brackets forming a neat and tidy line in your mouth that makes them look good. Obviously, having a naked smile is better but braces don't make people look ugly, I think. They're so common that people don't think anything odd about them anyway.
And the glasses, just get a flattering pair and you really won't have to worry about them. You'll be fine.2
