MANY people who have wonky or crooked teeth opt for braces in a bid to achieve the perfect smile.
Usually, treatment lasts between one and three years – but not for one woman, who removed them herself a whopping 11 years later.
Danielle Ashley, who posts under the acronym @datoxicboss, took to TikTok and posted a video where she explained: "I removed my own braces after having them for ELEVEN YEARS!!!"
In the clip, she shares a snap of her teeth with braces, before revealing what they look like after.
Alongside the video she shared several hashtags, including: "enough is enough, "do not try this at home" and "I was over it."
In a second clip, she posted more photos of what her teeth looked like before she had braces.
