Invisalign Process for 40+ Year Old Professional - Seattle

I'm a 40+ year old male who has decided to finally address crooked teeth, fangs, and other unhappy aspects of my smile. I've just started the Invisalign process. I began by going to 3 consultations with reputable orthos in Seattle. All of the doctors arrived at the conclusion that Invisalign would help me get a substantial improvement in the orientation of the teeth, but would not help... READ MORE

As a 40+ year old man, I'm starting to see the effects of sun tanning in my teens and burns when I was a kid. The process started by the technician applying goop that is meant to reduce pain.

The first Seattle vein doctor at Swedish Hospital was less than helpful... READ MORE

Humph. I was never provided with "refinement" aligners and paid 3x what you did! My retainer was fitted to push back one of the teeth, but that's about it on the refinement end of things. Congrats on being near the finish line. It feels... READ COMMENT

Well, you're going to be my decider if I get this treatment! I saw that doctors suggest here that it takes up to 3 months to see results :0 READ COMMENT

Beyond pain, I'm concerned that spending $3K and you don't see a difference! I guess they can do some measurements to see if there are measurable change, but in the end, you're the final judge if you can see a change. thanks for the... READ COMMENT
