Final results

Hello everyone!
Here's my story.
I had slightly crooked teeth and a class II overbite.
I had my upper and lower first premolars extracted.
I wore braces for 2 years and 8 months, and one year and a half of suffering with rubber bands.
I am very happy with the results, on the teeth and on the profile. But my upper jaw has become slightly narrower.
What do you think? Were the extractions the good solution?

Here's my photos:

They look really nice. If you had a before pic I could comment on how your upper jaw looks in comparison.

Thank you!
About the photos before, I avoided when I smiled to show my teeth before my treatment. I manifested a real complex about this. And I haven't picked up the before/after photos at the orthodontist yet. My upper jaw was larger before, it's normal I've chosen extractions to reduce my protrusion. But there is no black corridors, so no narrowness I think, just my upper and lower jaw have the same dimension now.
I react like this because I read a lot of negative points about the bicuspid extraction and it's psychological. The results change me a lot in a positive way and I need some time to accustom to my new appearance :-)
