Can braces widen nose? I am extremely upset

Have an open discussion
Sorry to hear about your troubles! It sounds like they may have expanded you upper arch to correct the cross bite. As the upper arch is expanded so is the bone which happens to be the base of your nose.
I would definitely recommend having a discusssion with your dentist about your concerns. There maybe other ways to accomplish the same results without having to do anymore expansion.
Best of luck
