Re: Crazy4Snow's Path to a Perfect Smile

The filling is becoming compromised and it's too large to drill out and replace with a new filling. This is just a small filling, with almost 0% risk of breaking even if it had endodontic treatment. If it had endodontic treatment and you got money to spare thant go for it and get that crown but if ...

Re: Crazy4Snow's Path to a Perfect Smile

You'll notice that I've had the 2 implants and crowns completed on MY left side, now I just have to get the 2 remaining implants on MY right side done as well as a crown on my last molar on that side and I will be DONE!!! Very inspiring to see :D but you don't need a crown on your 47 (m2inf), even ...

Re: Crazy4Snow's Path to a Perfect Smile

I'm shamefully overdue for posting an update, I didn't even share photos of my teeth after the braces came off. :shock: So 3 years later (give or take a few months) here are my teeth and smile. :D You'll notice that I've had the 2 implants and crowns completed on MY left side, now I just have to get...

Re: Crazy4Snow's Path to a Perfect Smile

It's been a while since I posted an update. I can't believe that I've been wearing braces for 2 years and 4 months...wow! But I am so fanatically thrilled with the progress. And guess what? I have a REMOVAL DATE SET !!! September 4th, just 25 short days away. I'm trying not to get too excited becau...

Re: Whitening before braces? Good or bad?

The whitestrips did okay, obviously they're not as good as the solution you get from your dentist. I also brush (once a week) with 1 teaspoon hydrogen peroxide mixed with 1 teaspoon baking soda and a dab of toothpaste. Mix that altogether and then brush for about 2 minutes. It will help maintain the...

Re: Day 3 with braces, Omg

I felt like you, I almost went back and had them taken off because the pain was so intense. But I'm SO glad I didn't. I'm a little over 18 months now and have ZERO regrets, it's so worth all the pain and aggravation! The first week was the worst, the adjustments only hurt for a day or two and is no ...

Re: Whitening before braces? Good or bad?

I whitened mine before braces, with Crest White Strips. They were a little sensitive when I got the braces on but I'd do it again. I wanted them as white as possible because I knew I wouldn't be able to whiten again until the braces come off.

Re: Crazy4Snow's Path to a Perfect Smile

Thanks gres1061 ! The last year flew by, I still can't believe it's been a year but I'm so glad that it's going by fast! I take the pictures myself. I use the super-macro setting on my camera and sit in front of the mirror so I can see the camera screen. It takes practice and it also takes numerous ...

Re: Crazy4Snow's Path to a Perfect Smile

Thank you Archwired28! I actually haven't gotten an official de-brace date. All I know at this point is "things are on track" and that's the most I can hope for...maybe I'll get lucky and have them off in 18 months...which is 6 months from now :)

Re: Crazy4Snow's Path to a Perfect Smile

They look sooo good! That is so neat how they even change how your lips look when you smile. It is neat isn't it? I love my smile now. And...it has totally changed the shape of my lips, they're fuller and not just because the braces are under them. There's all kinds of positive things that happen w...
