Do I need braces?

I've been thinking about getting braces. 80% for cosmetic reasons, 10% because they feel very slightly annoying, 10% possible health benefits.
My free UK NHS dentist says I don't need them, it's an unnecessary risk and the treatment can go wrong. My private, fee paying dentist says it's a great idea if I can afford it, it's good for health too.
The money isn't an issue, but I really don't like the idea of spending a year or more in the docks.

Frank opinions welcome. Adjusted for English standards!
