life of a cuddlebit

my random ramblings


metal mouth no more

I waited patiently as the dentist plucked each bracket on my teeth. After what feels like 30 mins (its only 5 mins in real life) my braces are gone – for the second time around! I had a relapse so I got braces twice.

After three long years of being a metal mouth (the second time around braces)… ahhh this feels divine!

Can smile my Cheshire cat grin* now.

*smiling with all of my teeth showing.

I run my tongue over the smooth surface of my teeth. And again, and again.

Till it is time to get the cast* of my teeth.

*Those plaster replicas that are meant to be of help in creating the retainers.

So, because I am so proud and euphoric of my new found freedom… I am posting a before and after cast of my teeth.

The ochre is the before, the green is the after. The front tooth was chipped when the cast was given to me, must have been dropped or something… but looking at it gives you the idea of the improvement my teeth had.

Now that I am free from braces. Let the prenup shoot begin!
