It was a big surprised! The pictures were right after the braces were off. Now that it's been a few days, it seems my teeth are a bit loose and I'm starting to notices two small black triangles on the lower front. :( :x :evil: I will post a long lengthy post this weekend about the removal process and what has happened since.

Thank you! I'm so relieved to have them braces off! I breeze through flossing now! And flossing with braces is something I won't miss!

Yes, I love my new and naked teeth! Only three weeks since debracing and I have already forgotten that I had braces.

Well, we can kiss pearly white teeth good bye! I tried an at home whitening system with the LED light and by the third day, my teeth became so sensitive to cold air that breathing was unbearable! And I didn't particularly care for that gritty feeling in my teeth after! :soremouth:
