Here is a picture of me without the braces. I love the way my teeth turned out!! I soon realized that the braces actually helped me to look older. Now that they are off everyone keeps telling me that I look younger. THAT WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN!! I was supposed to look older when they got taken off, right? Now instead of looking my age of 17 I look 13!! Oh well, I guess that is the way it was meant to be! Anybody got any tips on how to age a person in their looks??? LOL!!
