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.
