Kim Zolciak’s oldest daughter, Brielle, has had braces for longer than she’s been on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, (a lengthy eight years to be exact), but the 16-year-old finally has major reason to celebrate: she’s officially braces-free!

Little sister Ariana got her braces off months ago, and Brielle has always been very vocal about ditching the mouthwear as well. In her first braces-free pic, the soon-to-be high school junior kept the description short and sweet, simply tweeting the above snap and writing, “bracefreeeeee."

Mom Kim seemed equally excited and even a bit relieved that Brielle’s mouth was free of orthodonture. On Instagram she wrote, “My baby girl @briellebiermann got her braces off today!!!!! Been 8 yrs and 2 sets later!! Clearly worth it! Teeth to me see número UNO!!”

Kim’s accompanying photo shows a braces-free Brielle behind the wheel of a car looking incredibly mature and beautiful. Where did the time go?!
