To brace or not to brace, that is the question

I had my appointment with the orthodontist today and got the lowdown on the braces. I still haven't made up my mind about them. Invisalign is out. I'd get the clear ceramic braces and have to wear them for 20 months, most likely. The money isn't a real issue so I can't use that as an excuse. But I just don't know what to do. Part of me wants them. I would love to get them evened out, and it would close up the gaps I have on top in the back where my baby teeth came out and never got replaced.

On the other hand, it seems a little frivolous.

Anyone out there get braces in their 40s? What were your experiences like? Do you regret it?
