Am I too old for Braces?

Adult Braces

Do you Love your Smile??  When someone mentions your smile, does it make you self-conscious about your teeth? Or do you think about all the little things you’d love to change about your smile or your teeth? If so, you should ask your dentist about getting braces as an adult! {If you’re looking for a dentist, we highly recommend Dr. Davis Gardner in Chesterfield, VA!} Most adults see braces as “something for teenagers”. But you would be surprised at how many adults use some form of orthodontic device to straighten their teeth or improve their smile! There is no age limit when it comes to braces.

My Story: Braces as an Adult

I am a 30 year old mom with 3 little kids and I decided I was tired of my crooked front tooth and was ready to do something about it. Yes, I am wearing braces at the ripe old age of 30. Wahoo! I never had braces growing up so I was a bit nervous about the process. I kept putting it off for years and when I hit 30, I finally decided I just needed to do it. So I asked Dr. Gardner to set me up with clear tray braces. Want to see how nerdy I look?

This photo was taken by my 3 year old son while we were sitting in church. So as you can see, its not a great shot, but it lets you see a what my teeth look like with clear braces. You cannot see the clear trays at all. And note, my little guy was like 1 foot away when he snapped this photo of me! The only thing you will notice about my smile, is that I am one of those unlucky people that required white “buttons” {tiny squares of composite} on all my top front teeth. These buttons help move my teeth with the trays. My braces smile looks so much better than one with a bunch of metal!

I’ve had clear braces for 7 months now. Yes, I feel a little nerdy wearing braces, but its really not that bad. They’re hardly noticeable. And I love that I can take them out to eat and brush my teeth. If you were thinking about adult braces, I’d recommend just going for it and getting it over with!
