A Straighter Smile with Invisalign
When I first came into the practice, I had never had any braces or orthodontic work before. And so when I came in, I originally came in for a cleaning and they were able to explain to me what was wrong with my bite and take what I wanted, which was eventually to get some sort of veneer placement, and explained how Invisalign would work with my smile and fix my bite, so that I could get to my goal of getting those veneers on eventually.
I originally was very hesitant because I was about to start my career after I graduated from law school and I wanted to make sure that I didn’t have Invisalign or any sort of brace in my mouth when I was walking into the courtroom or doing things along those lines. They were pretty much able to explain the timeline extensively and I was made more comfortable after their explanation with the fact that I would only be in the trays for about a year, maybe a year and a half with some adjustments. That put my mind at ease with where I was going to start in my career.
I’ve almost forgotten about the fact that I’m in Invisalign right now. I always can feel it whenever I change trays, the day after I change trays because your teeth are realigning, but I can always call here and ask them if I feel any discomfort or anything and get an explanation as to that. Other than that, I haven’t felt any extreme discomfort. And like I said, this is my first time in orthodontic work. So at first was not used to it at all and now I’ve gotten very used to it.
So for me it’s actually been surprising that when I meet people and talk to them and then later on they find out that I am in Invisalign, they’re always like, “Oh, I never would have noticed.” I think that’s kind of what sets it apart rather than the traditional braces that you see a lot of people in, is that you don’t always notice right off the bat that you’re in Invisalign. That was my biggest worry cosmetically, especially going into work meetings and things like that. Not that it’s bad to have braces or anything like that, but for me, I just wanted that comfort to know that maybe people wouldn’t know that I was in Invisalign.
