I really hope so, I just wish I go through a great drastic change like someone people, but who knows? I will have to wait to find out
You'll definitely feel awkward at first, but it's worth it :) give it time
awkward as in its weird to smile or gosh (stare at the reflection) I feel different?
It's different to see yourself without them. I know for me, after I would finish eating I had to stop the habit of trying to feel my brackets to make sure food wasn't in themAnd it feels weird not having the brackets against your lips
aww I can't wait, don't you have to wear retainers afterward though?
YeahNowdays they give the clear ones unless you had a severe under/overbite in which case they give the metal ones.But it's usually anywhere from 3-12 months that you have to wear it 24/7 and then it becomes nightly wearI'm done with 24/7 wear :) unless I notice my teeth start to shift then I have to start wearing them 24/7 again
ahh really? they usually give clear ones? I hope I get clear ones then (: Ahh I am going to have to start wearing them for a year also 24/7 but I guess its worth taking care of your smile. A lot of my friends didn't wear their retainers so their teeth shifted
OH I just want it to do that for me! My confidence is a bit low now, I think it started when I got my braces on, so I am looking forward to change
have you gotten them whiten?
No, I have pretty sensitive teeth these days. I may get it done at some point though.
yeah I heard its bad to whiten them after you get your braces off because they are sensitive
Well, I got mine taken off ages ago, haha! I've just had sensitive teeth for the past couple years.
i feel like its better to whiten them the natural way (: I heard sensodye toothpaste is good
That's what I use.
it should help
I hope so! Thanks :-)
How can you not notice! lol aww, no more obstacles
I just didn't notice :( Naturally she was kind of upset.I was look at her eyes when we were talking not at her teeth.
aww, we girls get upset! especially if your our boyfriend
Yea!You just look different for now, not weird. Look at how perfect your teeth are.SMILE
I know ha ha I received so many compliments today, people said I looked good different, better. This guy was like " It so cold, Vanessa change the weather"- I don't know if he was trying to tell me that I am hot or what don't know if I'm over thinking, What do you think?
YIKES, Vanessa. Oooh a bad ex.Anyway Vanessa I do believe he was saying that you are hot.What a great compliment.
haha no bad ex. Really? I don't see myself as hot though, like I don't wear makeup at all
thats what I believe, somehow people look more mature and better in a way

how so were you more socially accepted? Like, did people's perception of you change, did this boost up your confidence, improve romantic life?
people we're nicer to me, etc. my confidence didn't really change, I've always been stuck in my own head so it's very rare when I care about others' opinions. i got hit on way more, but I didn't necessarily accept all the offers.
thats interesting! its crazy how a small thing for us can change how we are treated. I am about to get my braces off and I am excited, its before homecoming, but I am nervous at the same time
how long have you had them for?
I have had them for one year 10 months, I am getting them off 2 months early. I hope this really boosts up my confidence
ooo how exciting :o
I know ugh I have been counting the days ! 3/4 more days woot:o!
so you didn't feel different in any way?
Well my teeth felt slippery because I wasn't used to touching them with my tongue.
how about appearance wise?
Nothing really.. I felt I looked better without the braces but my teeth in the front didn't change much since the teeth out of place were in the back.
aww but on the bright side all of them were nice except those that you are talking about
