Altho I have always had fairly white teeth, my front 2 being crooked always irritated me, but it didnt happen til my late 20s when my wisdom teeth forced themselves in, so thinking I was too old for braces I just put up with it.
About 6 months ago a Living Social deal came up that promised a savings of $2000 on invisalign - so I bought it, went for the consult and was consequently so blown away by the promised results and the quick time I could achieve it in that I decided to go ahead - even tho I am now 52.. no its never too late!!!
Onto my second tray of only 13 needed - so am very stoked with the whole thing!!
There is really no pain or discomfort for me, the only thing being the brushing and flossing thing, but it stops you from overeating too, as I really couldnt be bothered sometimes to go thru the whole process if Im not really hungry.. so am slimming a little too!
I decided to do just my top teeth and then Ill do my bottom teeth after Im done. I really wanted to avoid the lisp etc as I have a job which requires a lot of customer contact (at the Airport - Passport please-) As it turned out, the day I got them in I didnt tell my husband and he didnt notice! I told him the next day and he was really surprised. Even people at work who have had them in the past didnt pick up on it til I told them!... (note to self- dont tell anyone...)
The photo actually seems worse then they actually look - I think the flash accentuates the plastic more than it is in real life.. I am VERY happy with the way they look and the results I am hoping for... Have already noticed when I am flossing a difference in the gaps between some teeth..
All up I only paid $3000 (AUD)
