Metal mouth transformation

For the last week, I've had orthodontic spacers in my lower back teeth. While not particularly painful it has been annoying having this sensation of a chunk of food in my teeth that I can't dislodge.

Well all that ends today. The spacers go.

That's the good news. The less than good news is that they are getting replaced by braces. So much for comfortable teeth.

I just signed the waiver that says that any number of things can wrong and it's not their fault. Oh and they suggested I reduce or drop sugar from my diet during the treatment. Uh, don't think so.

And it begins...

And I have braces! Though I was tempted, I didn't get hot pink ties on them. Nope, they are as subtle as they can be.

For all my kvetching, the process didn't hurt and they were quite nice.

Now, I wonder how long I'll go before I break something because I'm not following the rules?

My New Look:

(Yikes that's ugly!)
