:D :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
Zondrae: Thank-you! It feels great and I'm still smiling!
Tim: Thank-you!
Linda21: Thanks Linda, the feeling is mutual! Pics- I'll take them soooon.
Lionfish: I brought in a tray of PB/Choc fudge. They went nuts for it!
islandbabe715; thank-you!
Denise: GEE! I really forgot about this post myself and forgot to THANK EVERYONE!
I was going to reply to everyone once I got the retainers and I plum forgot.Thanks for the remind. Things are going marvelous. I got a Hawley for up top and a bonded for the bottom.
As for the wife : she's happy I did the braces thing and kissing is really a lot easier. She said my teeth really didn't look that bad to start with but she was really pleased with the results. I thinks shes a tad bit jealous cause my teeth look better than hers. She wants a nice smile too but she is to fraidy cat to go to the ortho. she said she doesn't have enough teeth as she had a bunch removed when she was a teen cause she has such a small mouth.
As far as pics linda and Denise: I'll take some soon and post them here and in the stories. I 'am so happy with my smile its hard to put down the mirror and pick up the camera!
Cheers- T.I.
