The first series of Invisalign made a remarkable difference in my smile. When I originally embarked on adult orthodenture, I just wanted some improvement. I wasn’t looking for perfection. But at the end of the first treatment, Dr Jacquie offered an even better result– and at no additional cost. I have waited more than 40 years to get a really pretty smile and now it was within reach.
Dr Jacquie made another set of scans to develop the next set of aligners. I thought that I would need another 8 or 9 plastic tray and I was a bit surprised that my new set of aligners had 15 new trays. However I will be changing them every 10 days rather than every two weeks, so the time was about the same.
I also got another Madonna-like make-over from Dr Jacquie– that is she created a bit more space between my two front teeth. My two side incisors had a shape that defies description, making it hard for them to line up neatly with the front teeth. They too were slightly reshaped to allow my teeth to form an even row.
I was a bit concerned that the aligners in this final push would be uber tight but they were actually more comfortable than the first set. Even in the cold windy weather , I could forget that I even had them on.
After just one month with the new aligners, my overbite is rapidly becoming a figment of my imagination. To keep me going, next week, Dr Jacquie is giving me a complimentary Zoom tooth whitening treatment.
When I first started to explore adult orthodenture, another dentist told me I was not a candidate for invisable braces. Instead she recommended two years of metal brands and attachments at more than twice the cost of Invisalign. Hearing that opinion, I put my dreams of a nicer smile on the back burner. Only a chance meeting with an experienced Invisalign dentist, gave me the results I had always wanted. The takeaway here? Always get a second opinion.
