Like most pre-teens do, I counted down the days until I got my braces off. The hope of every visit was crushed when my orthodontist would say “just a few more weeks”. It came to my sophomore year of high school and, well, not to sound dramatic but I was tired of his shit. Homecoming was in a few days and I was determined to have them off for the infamous “hoco pics”. Priorities right? My 15-year-old self thought she knew better than her well-educated orthodontist and insisted that they come off. Somehow, I was able to convince him.
Fast forward 6 years (of not wearing my retainer- lets be real who ends up wearing those things) and my teeth were getting noticeable worse. They weren’t crooked, and still looked great from the front, but from a side angle they projected outward and it started to bother me, especially in photos. It wasn’t something I was necessarily insecure about (yet) but I knew if I didn’t do something about it, they would get progressively worse.
So I looked into Invisalign. Considering my boyfriends mom is the manager of a dental office, I knew I had a team of professionals that I could trust on my side. The process was supposed to take about six months but ended up taking longer due to my time in LA.
I am in no way here to give you professional dental advice, I'm just sharing my personal experience with the treatment. Here are the top questions I have gotten about my Invisalign experience:
1. How does it work?
All in all, I’m SO happy with my results and I have to thank the awesome team over at Advanced Dental Care of Pembroke Pines, FL for their incredible service.
If you are thinking about investing in Invisalign and it won't break the bank, I'd say go for it! A smile you are confident about from every angle is priceless! And if it means you will smile more often, hell- who doesn’t want that?
Let me know if guys have any other questions and I will reply down in the comments below.
