So, why am I getting lingual braces?
The simple answer is, my teeth are crooked and I don’t like it!
I suffer from overcrowding so I have a couple of teeth protruding on the top and my bottom teeth aren’t straight either. I also have an overbite, which means my top teeth almost completely cover the bottom ones when I bite together.
So. Deep breath.
This is what my teeth look like now, right at the start of my braces adventure.
BEFORE, WITH A ‘NATURAL’ SMILE
Of course, that’s not actually a natural smile because I always smile with my lips closed so my teeth are hidden from view!
BEFORE, NO HIDING
So, there they are in all their glory.
I have mixed feelings looking at these pictures. I usually avoid looking at my teeth this closely and hide them when I laugh or smile, so it makes me a feel a little sad. But also, I want to remember where and why this journey began.
I’m pleased you’ve found this blog and I hope you’ll join me for the ride!
