I'm gonna be a braceface
Braces: Yet another awkward adolescent hurdle that most of us have to leap over. But just like gym class, you’ll conquer this sucker, too. Truth be told, the GL offices are full of former bracefaces. I’m betting the majority of kids at your school will eventually be saddled with braces, too. Keep reality in sight as you prepare for this change: Braces are definitely nothing new or unusual.
Remember, sweetie: The pain you might feel and humiliation you imagine are going to result in a gleaming smile. And when it comes to braces, two years isn’t a terribly long time, and once you have them, the months will fly by. Promise!
Still down in the dumps? Keep in mind that there are a bunch of kids out there whose families can’t afford braces. They’d love to have your perf smile, so consider how fortunate you are to have ‘rents who not only want the best for you, but who can afford to spend their hard-earned cash on keeping your bite bright.
Once your mouth is packed full o’ metal, there will be certain things you won’t be allowed to eat ‘til those braces come off. Things like corn on the cob, popcorn and bubblegum might be off limits, so get chompin’ while you can.
