before and after

take this little girl:

invest a small fortune,

add a splash of purple and blue,

some metal…

and you get this:

teeth will be straight and beautiful in, oh, about two years.

      good mommy and fed her ibs before we left the house and sent extra to
      school!

    I got mine at 19 and lived on whoppers and plain m&ms after tightenings! Wax will be her friend for the brackets that chew up the inside of her little mouth until it toughens up a bit. Tell her I said it is absolutely all worth it in the end!
