Improving My Smile & My Confidence with Invisalign
I am a member of the Invisalign Moms Advisory Board and am receiving complimentary Invisalign treatment.
Years ago I had braces. This was in my early 20's. We couldn't afford them when I was younger so a few years into college, I decided to get them for myself. This is what I looked like:
Wearing braces was neither a comfortable or a private experience. I constantly worried about things in my teeth, breaking one of my braces and smiling in pictures. I think that I spent a good five years right before getting braces only smiling with a closed mouth during pictures. It was sad.
After three years in braces, my teeth looked beautiful. They were straight, white and absolutely perfect. All I needed to do was wear my retainer and I would be all set.
I wore my retainer for years. I wore it religiously. Then life got in the way. I met a man. Got an MBA. Bought a house. Got married. Had a few kids. And a bunch of other stuff. Retainers were not even on my radar. In fact, it was a good six months before I realized I could no longer find them.
After having three children, I began to notice small changes in my teeth. On the bottom there was a lot of space and food gets caught down there but since I am an expert flosser, I can deal with that.
Then I noticed that the teeth on the top were crowning each other. A few of them had turned and while it may not be noticeable to most people, I notice it. I look in the mirror and think, “I need to do something about my teeth.” But for me, I have so many other responsibilities and things to do that there was no way I could make time to get braces or even go to monthly appointments. I just couldn't do it.
One day the folks at Invisalign contacted me about working together and the dream of once again having straight teeth came back. It was becoming more and more of a possibility. I want these teeth:
Even more, I love the fact that I will be able to wear braces and smile. I don't have to worry about things getting caught in them. They will not be big and bulky and have my mouth full of metal.
I am getting Invisalign 100% to improve myself and to do something that I have wanted to do for a long time. I have had my fitting for the trays and in a few more weeks, I will actually put my trays on for the first time.
I am thrilled to be a part of the Invisalign Mom Advisory Board. I needed this. My teeth needed this. I am going to take you along on my journey. Just wait until you see some of the fun things I have planned.
