Clever comebacks when someone makes fun of your braces

Funny replies when people make fun of your BRACES

Getting braces is a right of passage in the teenage years. Yeah, it definitely does suck to have huge amounts of metal shoved into your mouth by the Orthodontist, but you will be grateful in the long run when you have fabulous teeth.

Its bad enough that your mouth is cut up by the metal brackets of death without people making stupid comments calling you metal mouth. Of course, moronic people like to make the same old boring jokes about your braces, which aren’t funny after the fifth time you’ve heard the same stupid comment.

Next time somebody makes fun of your braces, use one of our great comebacks and shut them up.

Many famous people have had braces

You may think it really sucks to have braces and large chunks of metal clogging up your mouth, for many people braces are a privilege.

When she was a child, Gwen’s parents were not able to provide expensive orthodontic treatment. Gwen Stefani said that as soon as she was rich she was going to get braces, and she got them as an adult when she was 30 years old.

She shared with Harper’s Bazaar, ‘I always told myself when I got rich, that’s the first thing I’d do.’

Khloe Kardashian decided to get braces at 28 years old. Some people think that it is weird to get braces as an adult but it’s better than walking around with crooked teeth for the rest of your life.

If you have the cash like Khloe, you can get Invisalign and people will barely be able to see that you have braces.

  1. When I first got braces a boy in my class walked up to me and said, “Autumn, I think your braces look dumb.” And without missing a beat I replied, “Well, Jack, I think your face looks dumb.”

  2. If someone said something bad to me about my braces I would say “unlike you I actually know how to take care of my teeth”

  3. Brace yourself for something from me.
