I went to the dentist in July for a cleaning and i wanted to know more about Invisalign since no one i knew had it. I have always been self conscious about my teeth and NEVER smile showing them. So, i talked to them and they were praising it. So, i signed up. That day, i had a cleaning that morning at 10 am. I went to lunch after and came back and they did the impressions (which is disgusting) with this green looking goo. They hold it there for about 2 minutes. They made an appointment to come back a couple weeks later. Got my first set on September 2, 2016. I was terrified before i went in because i had read reviews that people saying it was extremely painful. Well, i guess depending on how bad your teeth are maybe it is.
First off, my teeth are actually kind of straight. Not perfect. The main reason i got Invisalign is because i have an overbite and i have major jaw issues, mostly just on my left side. It pops constantly. So, they said it would help. Also, i have never had braces before so this was all new to me.
I only have to have 10 trays (YAY!) and wear each one for 2 weeks. I go back in 6 weeks to get the "buttons" on. I'm interested to see how that is going to go.
For the total cost it was $3500 and a free whitening at the end of the process.
