My mom has been pressuring me about this, but I just don't feel like doing it. Do crooked teeth make me look ugly or what?

Braces can make your teeth look better, but more importantly, you will have less problems with them later if they are properly aligned. Talk with the dentist and orthodontist and decide. The sooner the better, since they wilol look better and function better longer, and lead to fewer problems.1

Um, why not?
Talk with your dentist about your teeth.
While dentists do not have the specialized training that orthodontists have, they are a good place to start for advice about your teeth.
A dentist may be able to help you decide if you should see an orthodontist about your teeth and jaws. Your dentist may also be able to refer you to a reliable orthodontist in your area.1
