Just Call Her ...

... brace face.






She's loving every single minute of it ... right now. Though the pain is slowly starting to get to her. Give it another day or two and I'm not so sure she'll be smiling this big.




The before, during, and after shots of getting the braces on.
Total time? About 15 minutes! Dr. C's office rocks!

Aw... I love the last pic... huge smiles, despite the tears in the eyes. lol. I've never seen partial braces like that, just on 4 teeth? So amazing what they can do these days! I can't even get a coffee in 15mins!

She looks adorable! I remember braces well an I don't think anything at my ortho took only 15 minutes!

Awww, she looks adorable! And she's letting you take pictures, too! Itai got his on about two months ago and it took a good month before he was willing to have his picture taken, and then only with his mouth closed.

Hopefully it won't hurt too much this week and she'll be used to them in no time.

Hope she does well. Julianna wanted braces really, really badly, until she got them. :) Advil helps.

What a beautiful young lady -- those eyes!!! My daughter was very excited about braces too and now is counting down the time for getting them off. I agree with the Advil advice. It really helps -- and soft meals around each adjustment time. Hoping the wanted results happen quickly enough -- such a milestone in growing up! And now with the color choices they are a bit more fun to have to put up with!

Laura will be getting braces, although we don't know when. Somehow I doubt she'll be smiling that big. Good luck with it all. I'm sure you have one already, but a Waterpik really makes a difference ... at least that's what I told my mom when I had braces, although she never actually bought me one.

She's so cute!! Both my kids will have braces for sure, so this is a good preview for me. :)
