Urgghh Braces

Wearing braces has been such a horrible experience for me.

Last year i made a decision to get braces because of my overlapping front teeth. I had been insecure about my dentition for a long while and when i finally had the opportunity to correct it with my means i grabbed the opportunity. Sadly it didn’t turn out the way i had hoped. I have been wearing them for almost a year now and my teeth are straight now but so many other issues came with it

I feel like my face is slanting one side, my teeth aren’t properly shaped, they aren’t all the same shape or orderly enough and it just frustrates me. And every-time i try tell my dentist about the improvements i like, she just goes ahead and tells me she can’t do anything about it. Its the worst!

I feel like even though my dentition wasn’t perfect it made me so beautiful and so unique. Of course I didn’t like it but it gave my face this whole look that was specific to only myself.

And now, i dunno if I’m being delusional but my face looks so different and in a horrible way. I still have 6 more months to go but honestly the facial changes have me feeling very bad and make me wonder if getting braces was such a good idea.

Everyone that tried talking me out of it would probably rub it in my face if i admitted i was regretting it. Its just so much sometimes i feel trapped in my face. Which shouldn’t be the case. I really don’t like what my face looks like at the moment. I am hoping as the treatment goes by i get back my beautiful smile with a touch of straight teeth

I just wish someone had told me about the whole braces process changing the structure of my face. Maybe i would have been more prepared or at-least thought on harder about it. I just thought they’d straighten my teeth without affecting my overall facial appearance. I was so wrong.

I’m hoping my next braces update will be about how they straightened my teeth and mu face returned to its beautiful unique precious self. Or if i have to start living with a whole new face that I don’t like very much now.

  2. I am so sorry this happened. I suppose the dentist cannot know what can change with such procedures. It sounds very distressing. My brother had a facial disfigurement when he grew a cyst on his lower cheek, it had to be removed and it scarred his face forever. However, he sees it as a huge disfigurement, and I see only his beautiful personality and the brother I have always known. He looks in the mirror and thinks of it as a huge alteration to his face, I have never noticed it. I hope this helps.

    This is a very honest and raw post. Our look is our identity, and it is brave of you to share this.

      1. Yes, it must be difficult to look in the mirror and feel like a different face looks back. I had a friend who had her face reconstructed, and afterwards, she was unrecognisable. It was a tough time.

        Kind wishes to you from across the digital abyss! 🙂
