Quite a long time ago I wrote a post on Modern Mom about my teeth, that I declined braces because I did not think they were ugly and that you should not have complexes over your teeth, because it is charming and unique with a non-helrak tandrad :)
Every now and then I still hear from people how much they appreciated that post, and I'm really happy! Therefore, I republished it a few weeks ago in the beauty tab on Zara Larsson's blog, thinking that I would spread my wisdom there where I have a slightly younger target group; )
However, I got both rice and rose, there were many who did not agree with me actually. Everything from "this was the best I read" to "you should have thanked me for the braces".
Of course I am not against braces if you want it, and of course I understand that braces in most cases are given due to other problems than appearance and then you should of course say yes. What I wanted to say with the post was that it is not ugly not to have straight teeth, or teeth that are otherwise not as ideal today. Not everyone needs to look the same and crooked teeth are not a beauty flaw.
