Am I too old? *Picture Update*

Posted by   + Show Post

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 to have healthy teeth! Braces can not only help heal raise but mentally as well. My hubby is 57 and his dentist says straighter teeth would improve his overall health! It is also supposed to open his tiny mouth up more and help his mutely snoring! Go for it! Be happy about your smile and improve your health! Good luck!

As others have said you are never to old, 21 is far from old.

Do it!!! I work in a dental office and two of my 40/50 year old coworkers had braces. They look great now!

Agreed!  

Quoting DarlaHood:

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!

No you aren't too old at all. lol

My 35 yr. old husband is about to get braces. If it makes you feel better about you, then you should go for it. That's exactly why my husband is getting them.
