haha yup the pout. i think braces only affect your face shape if you have to have teeth removed.

when i got my braces out, my mouth did look different, probably because there wasn't metal at the back of my lips^^

yes.

a little pouting :) I'm having it noww, ahhh. but u'll get used to it and adjust urself.

And another point, most people who have braces tend to tone down a little in the beginning as they lose a little weight cause the initial stage of fixing a braces is hell. Can't eat at all, therefore the face shape will be a little sharper

I think my mouth seems bigger than it used to now that I have my braces off. But during when I wore them, it didn't affect me cuz I didn't see a major difference. But it affects some people with the pouting because the braces sticks out.

not the face shape, if your teeth protudes outward then braces will help them pull backwards...it's hard to explain...but I hope you got it ....

do you mean during or after braces? For many people (me, at least), face-shape was the POINT of getting braces. If i hadn't gotten them my lower jaw would be a foot in front of my face, but now I have a normal face...so yeah, since your jaw determines a large part of your face, I'd say for many people it DOES change your face shape....supposed to be in a good way though.

I hateddddddd my mouth when I had braces. I already have a natural pout so after I got braces, it looked horribleeeee. My mouth stuck out. :crazy: But they're off now so I'm good. ^_^
