I never had braces growing up, my teeth alway bothered me but no one ever seemed to notice them. I finally got lumineers put on for a 20th birthday present. I've had them on for about 4 months, so far 2 have fallen off. Although, I have not been the most careful with eating. The temporary lumineers were very awkward and misshapen, but I was happy with the end result. Only problem I have with them is how much of an overbite I look like I have. People compliment my smile daily now!
