    no not that i've noticed
    only your lips if anything
    the metal may make it harder to close your lips together
    unless you mean before you get braces and then after
    i guess it depends what was wrong with your teeth

    when i wore braces a lot of people noticed that my face got smaller/thinner, like i used to be chubby on the face i guess

    i didn't notice that until my cousin and my dad mentioned it. my cousin used to have a chubby face/chubby cheeks (yeah, like a chipmunk's!^^). when i saw her over break, she had her braces off and she told me how she likes her facial shape now, which is more oval and less chubby. my dad noticed it and said she looks better and now that i think about it...her facial shape did change. i got braces, but how come i didn't change that way?! image oh, yah, and her jaws were a bit more defined.

    I think it really depends on the person.
    If you're like fixing an overbite, wouldn't the change be more dramatic?

    depends how bad your teeth. i didnt have to pull any teeth out and when i got it first thing i really notice is that my mouth area got bigger.. it sticks out more. i think a lot of my friends like me without braces cause a lot of them asked me when am i going to get them off -.- But i think that some people it doesnt really affect their face shape. also ever since i got braces, when i sleep at night sometimes i drool =\ iono if its just me but during like first 10 minutes or so when i fall asleep my mouth opens somehow and i drool adn than i wake up and notice it and close my mouth and than when i wake up in the morning my mouth is still shut. so yeah, i notice that started happening right after i got my braces

    ^ yeah it depends on how bad your teeth are.
    but you get used to it. it only sticks out a little anyways.
    I will forget you by tomorrow. But right now, Oh man.

    dements your jaw.

    lol, kidding.

    i saw on tv where these identical twins were compared. one got braces when he was 12 or something, and the other got braces a few years later.

    result was, the one who got it earlier had a smaller smile.

    one who got it later had wider smile (er, the 'normal' smile).

    actually, it was a really noticeable difference. their jaws had an evident difference post getting any braces.

    yeh it definately does. i know this girl who got braces and her face got 3x bigger. i got braces and took them off 3 months ago... my cheekbones and jawline definately look different. it might affect some less than others, but you'll definately see a change if you compare your before and now pictures.

    I had an overbite and now it's gone, so my face looks better I guess.
