What do you think?

Would it be weird if I got braces? I'm going to be 28 this year and I need braces. First I have to have my wisdom teeth cut out. They're growing into my other teeth which is pushing all my teeth and making them crooked. What would you think of an almost 30yo with braces?

It sounds as though you need them. You'll be better if you do, I've seen 30 somethings with braces

 No big deal. It might only look weird if you get coloured elastics.

 I actually got braces on my teeth last year...had them from April to December. My dentist recommended traditional braces over the Invisalign because they would work faster and be over $2,000 cheaper. I only needed them on my top teeth and it cost me $1,500.I don't regret it....and I was 27 when I got them and turned 28 a few months before I got them removed. I feel so much better about my smile now...and no one gave me any grief over it.

A coworker of mine got them in her late 20s. I didn't think it was odd, but she does get mistaken for a kid a lot.
