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

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 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

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

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

I was really considering getting veneers to correct the crookedness in my front teeth but when I consulted with Dr Rochon in Ottawa she suggested high speed braces and assured me that the process will take only 6 months and the braces will be barely visible as my 2 concerns were my appearance...

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...

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

Well, I've had braces on for just under 6 months now and they're doing a LOT of of help to my teeth. I've also got an upper jaw stretcher that is super annoying, but it seems to be doing the trick. I've had 2 check ups, the first time I had my bands changed, I had blue, and the last time I went... 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

Although the process is long and rough I find it extremely worth it. I didn't know that there were a lot of things wrong with my mouth until I got them so since I got them over with I don't have to worry about it in the future. However I have awkwardly shaped lateral teeth so there are still... READ MORE

First off, I would like to excuse my grammar now, I am on my phone, and iPhone's love to auto correct me!!!! I hate that I only have after pictures, I do promise that I will attempt to retrieve before pics =) It all started when I was 12, my canine teeth (the point ones) where ridiculously... READ MORE

Okay, so I got my braces put on, on the 4th of July, although I'm only about two months into braces I LOVE my results ! there's so much more to do to them but so far so good, before I had them on I had to get two teeth removed due to crowding... But heck I'd do anything for strait teeth, here... READ MORE

I'm getting traditional braces next month, just in time for high school. I was wondering how long it would take for my gaps to be close. If you look closely two teeth are pointing straight forward, and one of my front teeth is kind of bent at an angle. I just wanna know approximately how long it... READ MORE

I want to caution anyone who is offered the latest "Six Month Smiles" procedure, which is supposed to straighten crooked teeth in a matter of six months, DON'T DO IT! I went to a dental practitioner (who probably did a three day course) and now my teeth are more messed up than... READ MORE

Hi everyone, This will be my second attempt to do a review on Six Month Smiles! I typed one up earlier and it was perfectly detailed but then my laptop decided to restart and update on it's own! Urghhhh.. Lol But anyways, it all started off just me wanting veneers and it was pricey! $1000... READ MORE

I had a 5 mm overjet and a tooth on top that stuck out from the rest. Also my lower teeth were slightly crowded, although they didn't really bother me. I just didn't feel I loved my smile like I once did so I took the plunge. I'm currently 16 months into my treatment and my orthodontist says I'm... READ MORE

I got braces yesterday and I can barley close my mouth, even without braces I had trouble closing my mouth too. I am 18 and very insecure about my teeth, now that I have braces I cannot wait to finally be able to properly close my mouth, I know it'll take 2 years to get them straight, I just... READ MORE

The main problem I was facing was that my upper canines were very high.I was very shy to smile.I wor braces for 20 months.The braces were annoying for the first 2 weeks,and you need to take some pain killer everytime the orthodontist tighten them. I hate their silver color. I asked for... READ MORE
