whitening teeth question

Hi everyone, I have a question about whitening teeth. I got my braces off a few months ago and I got a night whitening kit to use. I have been using it every night for a week so far and I haven't seen any changes in the colour of my teeth. I didn't expect to see major changes in just a week, but at ...

hi everyone, i had my braces taken off almost two weeks ago with a permanent wire placed on my upper and lower front teeth. I noticed a few days ago that I am now getting spaces/gaps in between my teeth where the bonded wire is (my front 6 teeth). I am surprised at seeing this since I thought the bo...

Re: Spacing after Permanent Bottom Retainer?

unfortunatly, i am experiencing the same problem :( My braces came off just 2 weeks ago and I noticed last night, while flossing, that I am getting spaces on my top teeth where the bonded retainer is. I didn't think that would happen because from what I understand the fixed retainer is there to prev...

Re: Invisalign & Braces: The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, IMO

Invisalign has tons of PROs and this is undeniable. Sure we have some BADs as well, like cutting gum, brushing your teeth in public restrooms and so on. But what is really ugly for me is the fact that I can't " dispose " of my teeth as I want! When you are with Invisalign there is no cupcake with y...

Re: De-braced and Happy!!!!

THANK YOU!!!
it feels so weird being in the bathroom for a few minutes brushing, rather than a long time with my several steps of cleaning (waterpik, proxy brush...) :wink: :D

Re: Invisalign & Ceramic Braces: The Good, The Bad and the U

One of the well-known parts of Invisilign is that Invisilign will make trays for anybody, even if their method won't work for your situation. They are just a dental lab, not orthodontists. Just like a pharmacist will fill any valid prescription, Invisilign will run any set of impressions through th...

Re: space opening very close to debrace day?

great! thanks for the replies :)
