I Wore Braces For College...

...for BOTH sets of teeth (top and bottom).

My dentist was also the wife of my cousin in law's brother (I'm quite close to my cousin in law), and she gave my mom a HUGE discount (we didn't even pay half the real price, I think ^_^). The only catch? She usually chose the colors for the bands on my teeth.

The first one was this toothpaste green horrid thing, and I went to school for the first time with braces. My bestfriend said it shaved off a decade from my real age . I had to wear the braces for a while (my dentist eventually let me pick the colors myself ^_^) but I'm glad, since I have better teeth now =) *loves it*

I actually remember seeing a few students at my university with braces. I'm pretty sure most, if not all, of them have had them removed by now. But I guess if you want straight teeth, then it's definitely better late than never :)

Don't let it get to you. Don't feel embarrassed. at the end you'll be happy you wore them!
