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.

Only if you are too old to have straight teeth.

No, your not too old.  I was around 21 when I got mine and my husband was in his early 30's.  We are so glad we did it.

Fixing teeth is very important for not just not to look pretty but for how you feel about yourself.  It can also effect medically how you chew or feel pain in the future.  I would do it.  I had braces in highschool and smile all the time now.

It is not too late.  My 70-y-o MIL just got her braces off.

If I could afford them, I would and I'm 33.

I have a friend who had her braces put on at the age of 53! HER MOTHER also had some put on! You are NOT too old and if you can do it, I know you will feel better about yourself and thus be happier. I didn't see any pictures of you but I am sure it's not as bad as YOU think it is...we are always hardest on ourselves.

I got braces at 20 so I dont think you are to old at all.  I felt silly for having braces at my age but to me getting my teeth fixed was a dream come true and worth it.  And my 53 year old mother currently has them.  I say do it!  It will help your self confidence and you wont regret even for a second
