Tray Number: 1
I can vividly remember waking up at my best friend’s house in the 5th grade from a dream where my parents decided to invest in my future hotness, and hook me up with braces. Then her cat came and swatted at my face, waking me up from my wishful thinking. Being 24 almost 25 years old, I’ve obviously held onto that dream for a reason.

I currently wear invisalign and am probably halfway through my treatment. I cannot stress enough how important it is to wear the aligners religiously. I am doing a mid course correction right now, and had to literally pay for the consequences.

I had invisalign done to close 2 gaps in my teeth and correct my over-bite. My overbite was not corrected at all and only one of my two gaps in my teeth was closed. I am now going through "refinement" where I will have to wear additional trays to try to close the second gap.
