I was born with alot of diastemas. Our family was big (5 kids) and poor. We barely went to the dentist. I expressed desire to get braces as a young teen but alas it was purely cosmetic so my parents didn't let me. Burn! So, I lived my youth and into adulthood hating my gaps when apparently...

It's been nearly one year into my orthodontic treatment and I have a lot tell, so I will be doing several updates in the next few days rather than telling everything in the same post. But let me begin with telling something about myself and my starting situation. I had been self-conscious about... READ MORE

For years I have dreamed of having a perfect smile. After being referred to Dr. Vaysman and reading her great reviews online, I mustered the courage to get braces. Dr. Vaysman offers affordable payment options which make paying for the braces do-able. In addition, her staff always welcome me... READ MORE

This has been a long time coming. I am 30 years old and have made the decision to start correcting my teeth. I have crowding and a crossbite of one upper lateral incisor. I searched for the right doctor for several months and finally settled on the right one. I considered invisalign, but... READ MORE

Braces weren't painful at all. Only real annoyance was getting poked in the back of my mouth by wires. But overall, the worst part of everything was having four teeth extracted before getting the braces put on. If you have a good staff, you won't have a problem. Never had any visits that were...

I had many consultations over the years, and finally at 41 decided to bite the bullet and get braces. I wanted to turn on tooth at the top that was slightly misaligned, therefore I got them for the top only and a retainer at the botton. Procedure was fairly easy, no pain, just slight discomfort...

I am a 35 year old woman who had braces in high school then Invisalign as an adult to fix the teeth that moved back after not wearing a retainer for many years. I wore Invisalign for 2 years and 2 months. I "completed" my treatment in January but my two problem teeth are still in similar... READ MORE

After many years with somehow very nice Madonna teeth, for the past 10 years my top teeth decided to go the other way around. Little by little they got overcrowded and started to crook until one day I realized it was going too far, as basically the shadow of my lip would sometimes make me look... READ MORE

I've always dealt with my crooked teeth and bad cross-bite or brodie bite on the right side. I've read several positive things about the Damon system and thought I would give it a try even though I'm a little late in the game. I'm a little petrified with the experience so far because of the... READ MORE

My story? Well in my 20s I noticed that my teeth started shifting...no big deal I guess. I was so wrong! Fast forward to this year. I have developed a FULL fledged underbite. So since I've been paying for dental insurance and I never use it...I decided to check into braces. My journey started... READ MORE

Background: I am a 21 year old female and was told around 10 years of age that I needed braces to correct a 100% overbite and crowding. My parents couldn't afford to have the procedure done, so I'm having the treatment done now. I began treatment on October 30, 2013 for the following issues: 1... READ MORE

Spent just as much as most others for 1 year's worth of braces, and my top teeth turned out kinda okay but the results are definitely not what I was expecting. Refer to the photo and notice how my bottom teeth still have gaps even though I had braces for a year. My orthodontist does not care at... READ MORE

I decided when I was 22 to go ahead with metal braces. I had what you would call a party mouth and I never smiled with my teeth. I've had crooked teeth all my life and my parents couldn't afford to do it for me. My dentist said he would have it done in a year and a half but it's taking about a... READ MORE

I'm glad I went against what everyone was saying. Your teeth are fine don't waste your money your smile is great what are you even complaining about. Being honest I didn't have anything to complain about per se but my overbite from sucking my finger as a kid didn't bother me but I said hey you... READ MORE

I had always hated smiling because my bottom teeth were so crowded and overlapped. My insurance dropped the age limit on orthodontics so i knew it was time. I actually only have to pay around 1300 out of pocket. The first few months were tough. I kept breaking the wires in my sleep. Its been... READ MORE

I have always wanted to change my teeth but stupidly refused braces on nhs when I was under 18. Decided to take the plunge and spend a fortune on cosmetic braces, 6 Month Smiles. I have an over jet, open bite and cross bite which would not be fixed with these braces as they are short term but... READ MORE

Today was the beginning of the rest of my life, or so it seems. I've wanted braces since I was old enough to realize I had an unattractive smile. I never showed my teeth because i was never confident enough. I was browsing Groupon one day and ran across a coupon for Invisalign. Went to the... READ MORE

This message board helped me A LOT prior to committing to braces, and during my first few weeks. Hoping this is helpful to someone else! I'm a 27 year old female, and have always had a little bit of crowding and my eye-teeth were turned backwards. Nothing unsightly or uncomfortable. Around... READ MORE
