I used to have really... awful, scary, over-crowded teeth:
After a couple of months, my teeth started straightening up! It was so surprising. It happened so fast. This next photo was taken late September, just a few months after first getting braces:
This next photo isn't a very nice one! But, it was about a year after I had gotten my braces. My teeth were so straight and I loved looking at them! I decided if I were to get my braces taken off in that moment, I would've been happy because they already look so good:
The top photo in this collage was taken the day before I got my braces removed. My teeth were so... perfect. So straight. I was very excited! My friend told me to smile really big and show all my teeth so she could take a photo!
The bottom photo was, obviously, taken after I had my braces taken off:
So yeah! That was my journey with braces. 19 months. 19 exciting months. It was a pretty smooth ride. I didn't break anything, thank god. I had lots of fun with the rubber bands ;) Great for flicking people with :D
Here's the final photo of me. Taken straight after getting my braces removed. It took 2 and a half hours. But, in my opinion, braces are so worth the pain, the money and the time. I didn't exactly love them, but I was definitely a little bit sad to see them go.
