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

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...

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

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

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

My teeth were not that crooked, but I have a bad overbite because my lower jaw is shorter than the top, my teeth are PERFECTLY straight now and my doctor even reshaped some of my teeth to be more attractive. I wore them for over a year. Without jaw surgery my gummy smile and weak jawline can't... READ MORE

So I've had my braces for 2 months almost and can deffenetly say I don't regret it minor discomfort other then the first week of having them put on which still wasn't as bad researching before getting them was a bad idea since I have anxiety I spent weeks stressing about getting them and...

Ok I have a protruding mouth because of years of not getting braces even though I really needed them back then, now that I’m older 20 years old to be exact, I can now afford braces, ok my big issue is I got braces and 6 tooth’s removed to make space to fix my protrusion but I don’t think...

Hi! I had crooked teeth and my upper teeth comes out like a monster ! :( The doctor gave me 1.5 year to treat this and I am on halfway but my teeth are in line now... Still more progress, but I upload some pics here for you to see. It is really worth it. Furthermore, it changes my facial... READ MORE

I've always wanted braces since I was young but family was not able to afford it. I always smile crooked cuz I didn't want to show my teeth. My dream came true on the day I got braces put on. I loved every moment every pain and headache while wearing braces. I started the journey in 2012. I... READ MORE

This was a huge mistake!! My teeth were a bit crowded and I had a slight overbite. I am 45 and I noticed the poster for 6 month smiles in my dentist's office. I have had my dentist for over 10 years and overall have been very satisfied. He gave me the preliminary exam and said I was a... READ MORE

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

This story is about Ceramic braces, but first I have to tell you that I wrote a previous review about my Invisalign Braces that I wore for 1-1/2 years, titled "Anxiety and Elation about Invisalign." I am not crazy. Invisalign did straighten my teeth, but didn't failed to correct the slight... READ MORE

I decided to get braces because I didn't like my bottom teeth. I had my consultation and was advised that the best braces for me would be Fastbraces. I had my Fastbraces on for 6 months and when they came off I was really happy with the results not only are my teeth straight but they are... READ MORE
