Wearing Braces As An Adult
Wow! Two years ago yesterday I had my braces put on and last Thursday I had them taken off. It felt like Christmas and I haven't stopped smiling.
I am 41 today, so this was a big deal to go through as an adult but I did it and I can now enjoy my teeth for the rest of my life. Two years is worth that but there were times when it didn't feel like that. And it took a whole lot of courage to even make the appointment to see the orthodontist in the first place.
Since I had them put on I've had lots of emails from friends thinking of having them done too, so I wanted to make this little video to share my experience and to give you the encouragement to be brave if you are a grown up who doesn't like their teeth. I hope it inspires you.
My braces were fitted at Aesthetic Dental Zone in East Dulwich by Dr Nadjafi.
Here I am the morning before they were fitted!
