A New Smile

Back in October 2007 Travis had braces put on. Obviously it's a lot cheaper to get braces from the dental school then from a standard practice, and with Travis' student discount it was a no-brainer. Besides, who wants to go to a dentist with gnarly teeth? So on Tuesday he had them taken off, but I couldn't post until today since he parents are coming in town tonight and he didn't tell them when they came off.

The upper split-screen shows his smile before and after. Since it doesn't do justice to the fabulously crooked 'before' teeth, I've added the below split-screen. The first shot I took right after he got the braces on.

I would also like to point out that that first shot with the braces was as far as Travis could close his mouth! That was resting!

What a difference!

Yea for a nice smile!

okay this really makes me have to ask......his dad is a dentist - yet he did not have braces put on when he was young? Just wondering why

His parents did offer to get him braces but Travis refused because his teeth weren't that bad then. After his Dad became a dentist, his Mom and his brother both had them.

Looks great! I've only ever known him with braces, so I'll be looking for his 'new smile' this Sunday!

Also, call me forgetful, but I was going through recipes today and remembered that (yeah, four months ago) you asked for my pumpkin pie cake recipe. So now that I'm thinking of it, I'll send you to my cousin's food blog...she also grew up with it!
You can always find it there, and don't have to worry about losing it! She has tons of other awesome kid recipes that we've tried out and I totally recommend you to her site!
