Hey Everybody!! I got my braces off! So I definitely have a reason to smile. They even threw in free teeth whitening.

I love my new smile. I had braces when I was 20, but didn’t wear my retainer. Who knew you had to wear the retainer every freakin’ night for the rest of your life?! Anyway, this time, I have a permanent retainer installed behind my teeth, so that they won’t revert back to original position.

And, because I like to over-share, here are some kinda gross, but cool pics of my teeth before, during and after braces!
