    Crying or Very sad OMG - Is that what I'm up for if I don't shell out $1500 on a plate for my daughter?

    That sucks, but at least she should have a perfect smile by the end.

    My niece got hers removed a few years ago and people always comment on her smile.

    Expensive smile though.

    Mine were around $2k and I doubt anyone would have noticed if I didnt have them.

    $6k is on the cheap end of the spectrum for braces.


    And 83tna, my orthodontist (although who fucking knows really!!) was adament getting a plate was a scam. They only work as long as the plate is worn.... and gradually the teeth move back unless you've had braces first, and have a retaining bar behind your front teeth (like I have).
    As my bottom teeth can't move, my top teeth are less likely to.

    I had completely perfect teeth before my brother broke them, when the dentist put the new ones in he decided to make them a little uneven so they wouldn't show up as "obviously fake".

    Cunt.

    One of my incisors is 90% gold and 10% Platinum... covered in a white plastic sheath.

    I could be so gangster if I wasn't white.

    Husbands were perfect until the work van door smacked him in the face.

    I'm not getting them fixed until he finishes fighting.

    My girl has a bit of problem with her back teeth being crowded. The dental nurse removed one prematurely so the replacement didn't arrive until after others around it had grown in. They had more room than they normally would have so they moved further along her jaw than they should. Fuck, I'd better win something this Lotto draw. It is my birthday, after all. Not that that's ever made a difference.

    I really regret not getting the permanent wire for my bottom teeth. My plate was totally ineffective and my bottom teeth are crooked again.

    So - we'll wait till it's time for braces. Then we'll get the permanent wire. Thanks ChelseaT.
