Re: Lig colours (colors)

Sometimes I wish I would have metal on top and bottom. I have clear on top..metal on bottom. I am loving all the fun colors that everyone is doing! I think it would look funny ...wanting the clear on top...and add color to them! Just me...but maybe someday I will do color on top too!! :roll:

Re: Curve of Spee (lower arch curving upwards at front)

Bikerchick....very sorry for your loss. No reason for you to apologize for anything. It is not an easy part of life for anyone.
I have never heard of this curve. But I have it too!! Thanks for enlightening me on this!

Re: Self conscious about smiling with teeth prior to braces?

I agree with everyone! I, too, would hide my smile with my hand...or just a smile without my teeth. Now that I have braces....I smile WITH teeth all the time!! And a real smile..makes me feel happier...if that makes sense!

1. I LOVE the glasses! To me, It looks like you have a thin face.....not a sunken look. Just a thin face...and nothing wrong with that at all. Only thing that is missing....is your smile!

Re: Metal vs ceramic

When I decided to get braces....I figured I would get metal. I have to admit..I did not do much research on braces before I decided "now was the time". When I went in for my consultation , my ortho said" most adults want clear." Then he showed the model of regular and the clear. I liked the look of ...

Re: Round wire? Square wire?

I will put my question here. I just had my 2nd adjustment...and no wire change yet. Anyone else have their first wire for awhile ? Or are they usually changed by now ?
