Re: 5 Years on

It is now 5 years since I finished my active orthodontic treatment. I still have a bonded retainer and wear my hawley retainer every night. Neither is any problem and my teeth have not moved at all. My only regret is that I only had my top front teeth straightened. My bottom teeth are not bad and m...

Re: Tobilei's Train Tracks.

Yep, I'm with you on the bored of taking photo's. I really only take them to put them up here now :paperbag: I just want them off too. Like you I don't like my teeth much. I think they're ugly. Even when they're straight I think they'll still be ugly (then part of my brain goes "why the heck are yo...

Re: braceface74 story with pics

£200 for the custom made trays and bleach :-)
I think the crest white strips work well too though. Only reason I went to the dentist was because of the internal bleaching required on my root treated tooth :-)

Re: braceface74 story with pics

Thanks Jem :). My teeth are definitely photographing a whole lot better, normally I would have to take a million pix before I would get something I was confident about posting. Yeah the whitening is custom trays with 12 treatments (1hr per day), luckily they all feel fine not sensitive at all <touch...

Re: braceface74 story with pics

Yes indeed lol. I was a bit apprehensive that the internal bleaching of the dead tooth (front left) wouldn't have much impact but it's really brightening up almost to the same colour as the rest. Fingers crossed that the remaining 6 treatments will get it there then i'll only need the front fillings...

I have bonded retainer on bottom and went one week with that before getting my clear one only to be worn at night straight from the start. I had no problem with the bottom teeth during this period as the bonded retainer holds everything in place anyway. As for the tops, I had impressions taken with ...
