All smiles (or what $5000 will buy you)

Today was an exciting day at our house that has been nearly 2 years in the making. Our beautiful daughter got her braces off!!!!



And thank you Dr. *C* for your wonderful work. Unfortunately (for our checkbook anyway), I think we'll have at least one more kiddo in braces - ugg!

Her new smile is fabulous. I remember when my kids got their braces off, I just kept staring at their smiles. She's very pretty.

Congrats to your DD. She looks great! I know what you mean about the $$$$....my DD gets her braces off on March 9, the day after her birthday.

Beautiful smile- well worth the $5000. Those green eyes are lovely.

And look how clean she kept her teeth! Beautiful! We have to constantly remind our son to brush extra good.

I am still incredibly grateful to my parents for shelling out for my braces, so it was definitely not money wasted!

She looks beautiful! Congratulations.

Your daughter looks beautiful with or without braces, but she most feel relieved to be done. Money worth spent for sure!

What a beautiful girl! and smile. She must be so relieved. Isn't it just unbelievable that something like braces cost $5000.

BEAUTIFUL daughter! Yes, we're also developing an up-close-and-personal relationship with our orthodontist.

Beautiful smile, "dear daughter"!! Did everyone ask you if you got your hair cut?? That's what happened to me!! 'Thought it was OBVIOUS that 1/2 ton of metal was out of my mouth!! Tee! Hee!!
Now, unsolicited "word to the wise"--if your Dr. said to wear a retainer--WEAR IT!! I quit and my teeth are not like "at first", but they're NOT like when they were gorgeous, either. I have little buckies--and I HATE 'EM!!
Smile, smile, smile!!
Soft hug,
Your Mom's friend, Rhonda
