Two years of removable braces(which was to fix the structure of my gum) and nine whole months of non-removable braces. I didn't have to bear with much sufferings or torture cause practically the whole process was not painful. And I liked having to change the colour of the rubber bands every month.
The results are satisfying, well it has to be! Before I had my braces on, they were really crooked and the upper structure of my teeth looked like fangs. They're so much straighter and neater now, of course, that's what braces do. But the upper set of my teeth are rather jutting out, the orthodontist said I have to wait for the retainer so that it'll look neater.

Braces are truly magical, lol.
