New Braces - 05-24-06
Well, here I am... a 47 year old single female and I've got braces. Wow! Never thought this would happen. I've wanted them all my life but have to admit I feel a little silly and self concious to say the least.
But... theyre on now and will be on for 10 months, give or take. In approximately 4 months I'll get the lower ones put on. The tops are clear brackets but the bottom ones will have to be metallic. Either way, I get to change the color of the inserts at every adjustment. I've just spent a mountain of money on these so I may as well have some fun with it all.
So far no pain, only achy. After having 3 teeth pulled 4 weeks ago and the ensuing pain, I doubt the braces will hurt at all!
Sooooo.... here I am, the first ones are turquoise and purple in honor of my hunka grandmother who passed away several years ago - our family colors. Pilamyaye Yilo, Grandmother for giving me the wisdom to do what is best for me.

Yea for you...it is hard for us women to give ourselves permission to do what we want or need sometimes.
You have no reason to feel self-concious or silly!! Your picture looks great!! Congrats on finally being able to do for you!! I think the colors turquoise and purple are amazing together. You look beautiful!
I just hope I look that good at 47!
COOL!!!!! I didn't look that good at 27!!!
It is all an effort and it is worth it since you will have a great smile...you have a good smile now.
It doesn't look like you needed the braces anyways, you have a beautiful smile!
