My friend is really upset about getting braces. Her parents are paying for her to get them. I think it is cool that she is going to get her teeth fixed up. They are a little gappy and crooked so they will only look really nice when they get done. She does not want them and is afraid that they are going to be in forever. I tell her it would not be that long but anyone have any idea how long a person normally wear braces for? I think it would help her to know it is not as bad as she is making it out to be.
