Well, I had braces as a kid, and I did the horrible, big no-no of not wearing my retainer afterwards. My teeth had started to shift back and I just wasn’t really happy with how they were looking. I did not want to do braces again. I’m new in the business world, so my smile is a big deal to me. I wanted something very non-invasive and not noticeable. I knew I wanted to do Invisalign. It was the best process I could have asked for.
Well, what was great about Invisalign is that it really … it doesn’t really hurt that bad. Compared to braces, the pain was very minimal. Every time you put in a new tray, your mouth will be sore for one or two first days, and then after that you barely even notice them.
I’m just more comfortable smiling. My teeth are straight now, which I haven’t had in a long time because my teeth move pretty much really quickly after braces. I’m just more comfortable smiling in front of people. I don’t feel like they’re noticing crookedness or imperfections or anything anymore.
It’s definitely given me that extra boost of confidence that I was missing in the workplace. When I go in and shake someone’s hand, I can smile and not worry, “Oh, are they seeing this crooked tooth? Are they seeing these imperfections?”
It was just easy. It was seamless. I came in four weeks later … Boom … I had my trays. I was going down the path. I was almost there. Every time I came in it was, “Oh, your progress is so great.” They would show me on the screen how my treatment plan was progressing. That was really cool to see. Yeah, it was just the best experience. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Definitely.
