This page is my submission for the weekly challenge at Pencil Lines Sketches #130 and Color Combo's Galore. I really like to try and participate in some of the weekly challenges and there are two of my favorites. There are no restricitons other than following their prompts.
In this photos my daughter is wearing braces for the second time around at 24 years old. She wore braces as a teenager for 2 1/2 years, but unfortunately there were lots of problems after the braces came off. Meghan had a huge gap between her two front teeth prior to getting braces. About one week after the braces came off the gap reappeared.
Meghan was graduating from high school and at that point she wanted absolutely no part of having braces put on her teeth again. No amount of persuasion would convince her to go thru braces again.
Once she was in college in Gainesville we talked to another orthodontist and she again decided to not have them put on her teeth. This dentist told her it would be another 2 year process and she was not read to commit to that. It took another 2 years before she sought another orthodontist and arranged to have them put on for a second time.
So this March 2009 she had her braces removed for the second time. Prior to that it was virtually impossible to get a photo of her smiling with her mouth open.
