Vera, by this point, has had a lot of dental work done. She had a palate spreader, head gear, and retainer. The mold on the left is how her teeth started, the mold on the right is where they are today. The last step is happening...braces! Having never had them, I am failing miserably at being a supportive parent. As Jason like to claim, I just don't get it. There is no envy on my part.
