After only a year and seven months Anna got her braces off. She was both scared and excited. I was amazed how easy they just “popped” off and then amazed at what a beautiful smile emerged as Anna saw herself without braces for the first time.

The orthodontist rewarded her with a bag of formerly forbidden treats such as popcorn, gum and taffy. I also took her to Target to get 5 big packs of gum.

About a week later we got these pictures in the mail from her orthodontist showing her smile and teeth “before and after”.

I think the photos speak for themselves.
