  • You are not ugly. You are just late according to our standards here in the US. But like the old saying goes. better late than never right? Once you remove them your smile will be upgraded and you will look better.

    In other parts of the world, like Brazil where I'm from, women get braces as late as their 20's and even 30's and many actually think it looks cool.
    Brazil is considered to be a country that produces the most beautiful women on earth too so you'll be fine. Don't worry about it and remember they are temporary. :)

  • I got my braces at 19 and I had them until 21. They didn't prevent me from getting a girlfriend and my social interactions were not affected. I think you're going to be fine. Just think about how beautiful your teeth will look once you get your braces off!

  • So what? Nothing bad about braces. If they help you in the future then you made the right choice.

  • I had braces from ages 14-17. Honestly, teenagers with braces aren't all that uncommon, so don't worry. And I generally think braces look cute and I'm sure most guys your age do as well.

  • You feel old by having braces? That's weird! No, you are not ugly. I've seen a few people with braces in their 40s.

  • LOL, no, several of the cheerleaders at my HS had braces, and they were hot. Hotness is based on your body and face, not the fact that you have corrective braces to straighten your teeth.

  • Be thankful you didn't need to get metal ones as a kid. It's worth putting up with to get a great smile you can be proud to show off when you get them taken off.
