'Jenny: My answer is, if you're paying for your own braces, you should be bloody proud of yourself! And if your parents are paying for them, you should count yourself lucky and appreciate them. Dentistry is expensive. My niece's child had to get molars taken out and it cost her $3,000. If I had crooked teeth, I would get braces. Whenever I look at people with them, I think, "Oooh, they've got money." So why are you feeling shameful about your braces?! Some people might find them a turn-on; you never know! There are so many weird people out there. This world is filled with them. And in the end, you'll have the perfect smile and perfect bite. Okay: it's not attractive necessarily, but it's not ugly to me either.' (Publication abstract)
