Sparkling Pearly Whites

Everyone wants to achieve that "Close-Up Smile". Who wouldn't want to flash a nice set of teeth, right?

It was 2006 when I started wearing braces. There was really no problem with my teeth  except that my bite needed to be corrected. The problem was I had an open bite - the main reason why I had a hard time pronouncing "s" and at the same time, opening Cheese Curls - using my teeth. HAHAHA!

Most people think that wearing braces is just for "porma" purposes. Well I must say it's a commitment. Why? It's not easy. It is awfully painful at the beginning (so tight, you'll feel like you were punched on the teeth plus you'll get sores too!) Adjustments are done once a month by the way. You'll also have a hard time eating.

Below are my pictures then and now.

I am perfectly happy with the results of wearing braces. It was all worth it!

S M I L E!!! ☺☺☺

PS: Retainers should be always next to braces. ;))
