I decided to go ahead when my friend, a marketing executive, went for it. Also a guy I know at my tennis club, who is about 55, got braces.
As for appearance, I don’t care that I have metal train tracks. People know I’m getting something done to my teeth – they can see I’m doing something
The bottom line is that I’m going to come out with a decent smile at the end of it. It’s quite amazing how quickly you notice then change – after about six months, gaps start appearing. It makes it all worthwhile. It’s also not painful – a little sensitive at first, then fine.”
