"I decided to get braces as an adult because I had a lateral tooth that has always been just a bit out of place. Dr. Cooper and I tried a few different options using retainers, but we finally decided a few months of braces would do the trick! As it turned out, I got my braces on the same day as my daughter - not the mother/daughter day most would expect, but we went with it! I opted for the ceramic (tooth colored) brackets so they wouldn't be as noticeable and I really love how they looked! Now that my braces are off, I'm so pleased with how straight my smile is. It's never too late to have the smile you want!"
