Am I too old? *Picture Update*

I'm 21. My teeth are a bit crooked and I have one a bit high in my gum line. I hate my smile (but oddly, people often tell me they like it) I had my teeth fitted for braces (the mold, the spacers, ect) at 14 but my dad ended up not being able to afford the final deal, so I never got them. It is to late now? Should  I maybe try invisalign? I might post a picture (please don't bash) I really hate my teeth.

You are never too old.  My SIL who is in her 50s (or 60s) just got hers taken off. Her family was not able to afford it when they were children either.  I have seen many adults with the regular braces and think nothing of it.

It's NEVER too late!  I know people who have had braces in their 40's and 50's.  And there are lots of options that don't show in an obnoxious way.

Most ortho offices take payments.  Go for it!
