There are many things in life to smile about. If you really think about all the blessings in your life and how much it actually means to be experiencing those blessings, than you should definitely be smiling. Unfortunately, sometimes it’s hard to smile despite getting to experience the beauty of existing. Perhaps you are not confident about your teeth due to them being crooked and having gaps. It’s no surprise that this could prevent one from wanting to smile and show their teeth, I’ve personally experienced this myself. When I was 13 I had to get braces to correct the alignment of my teeth. I was already self-conscious of how my teeth looked, but once I got the metal bands attached to my mouth it was even worse. I didn’t want to smile because I thought I looked like a dumb little kid. Despite how much I disliked having braces, I have to say that it was completely worth the trials and tribulations I was experiencing when they were still on. As soon as I saw my teeth without braces on them and they were straight and I beautiful, I smiled as big as I ever have.
Kids these days have it easy now with the invention of invisalign; an orthodontic device that performs the same function as braces, but with a transparent mouth piece instead of metal brackets. With invisalign, no one will be able to tell that you have braces unless they see you actually putting in or taking out the device.
