I spent two years wearing those suckers and finally had them removed when I was about 17. There is nothing like the feel of your teeth after having metal brackets stuck on them.
But one of my bottom teeth has decided to go wayward and has really gone wonky. I can't stop looking at it or noticing it. It's started making me feel a little self-conscious.
I told Matt I wanted to get braces and he was all - 'no no no Lexi, you're not getting braces'. And I start thinking, oh man, I could be a mum with braces. This time around, the thought does not excite me. And last time I was at the dentist and asked them about that wonky-tonky tooth and she confirmed I'd not only have the bottom braces, but the top braces as well.
I am a big fan of imperfect teeth. On other people. I love Lauren Hutton's gap. Anna Paquin also has an alluring gappy smile.
But mine isn't a gap. It's a wonky-honky-tonk tooth.
Apparently this is big news in the UK. Well. Not mine. But royalty rocking a brace.
Has anyone had adult-braces? What are your thoughts on mums wearing mouthmetal?
