before and after (or really during...)


here on the top is my 'smile' before braces.....and on the bottom after they were removed last thursday...main difference i can see is the space in the middle is closed up...this is really a 'during' photo since this thursday i will have gum surgery to align my upper gums...then when i smile you won't see any gum on the left side like you do in either of these pictures...overall at this point i cannot see much difference...



close up of before..................................................and after/during

the major difference is going to be on the bottom...and when i went to the dentist this morning he said it was good to go for crowns...so i'll see what the ortho says on thursday regarding getting those braces off too!!! maybe in about 5 months i'll be all done...

ps: i could have bought a car...just sayin'

I'm sure you'll be a good girl and wear your retainer every night!

Wow, your teeth are so pretty and white! Great job and it's so worth it! I'm sure when this is all over with, you'll be smiling and smiling...and forgetting about any pain that was involved. For that kind of money, you better be smiling all day and all night!
